Course: Introduction to Kebnekaise, 2022-09-15

In this course, we begin with a short introduction to the Linux operating system (OS) that is used on HPC2N's compute cluster, and is the most common OS in HPC clusters. This part is only meant for complete beginners to the Linux operating system, and can be omitted if you are proficient already. See the schedule.

Then, we continue with an introduction to HPC and HPC2N, then move on to a walk-through of the Kebnekaise system, including the GPUs and KNLs. In the afternoon we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs. During the hands-on you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job to the Kebnekaise cluster.

The course will be completely online and we will use Zoom. More information about connecting and such will be sent to the participants shortly before the course.

Participation is free and open to all users from the SNIC HPC centres and academics throughout the Nordic region.
