High Performance Computing Center North
We begin with a short introduction to Linux, which is what is used on HPC2N's compute 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.
We then continue with a walkthrough 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.
Remote/online participation: The course will be streamed. We will use Zoom. The participants who have expressed a wish to participate remotely will receive an email the day before the course, containing the connection info.
NOTE: due to the situation with COVID-19, the course will be done online. You will get an email shortly before the course with information on how to connect, using Zoom.
