IANR HCC Tutorial - April 2021

April 23rd, 2021
11:00 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. Central Time

Topics Covered

  • Introduction to HCC
  • What is High Performance Computing
  • Who is HCC and what services do we provide
  • Connecting to HCC Clusters
  • Transferring files to and from the cluster
  • Utilizing modules (software) on the cluster
  • Submitting jobs using SLURM job scheduler
  • Jupyter notebook demo (time permitting)

Setup Instructions:

The tutorial will be a combination of lecture plus hands-on exercises. If you plan on participating in the hands-on exercises, please make sure you have requested an HCC account under your advisor/P.I.’s research group. If your advisor does not have an HCC group, please have them request one first. Participants will also need to activate their Duo two-factor authentication for the HCC account and be able to log into the HCC clusters BEFORE the tutorial begins. It is important that you try logging at least once before the tutorial and seek help if you are unable. Setting up Duo may require attending one of our remote Open Office Hours held Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:00-3:00. Unfortunately for a relatively short tutorial such as this, we won’t have a lot of time at the beginning to trouble-shoot login problems, so you will want to get started on these steps well in advance.
