Introduction to HPC/Slurm and Open OnDemand - *Hybrid* Data @ Your Desk Workshop

Did you know that students and faculty at FSU have access to a very powerful research compute cluster? This workshop will cover the basics of using the High Performance Computing cluster (HPC) to run computing jobs. It is a great introduction for users new to the HPC or those who wish to brush up on current best-practices and workflows for using the HPC at FSU. Specifically, this workshop will cover:

  • How the HPC works
  • What the Slurm Scheduler is and how to use it
  • Slurm job submission and job management commands
  • How to run compute jobs on the HPC

This event will have an in-person and a zoom option! You must register to attend either event.

Where: Dirac Instruction Lab (Room 208)

How to Prepare:
Before the workshop begins, be sure that you have installed a secure shell (SSH client) on your computer.  If you have a Mac or Linux computer, an SSH client is already built into the operating system.  If you have a Windows computer, refer to our instructions for how to setup an SSH client.
We encourage you to sign-up for an RCC account on our website prior to enrollment if you want to follow along interactively. However, this is not a necessity to follow the course.
