Introduction to High Performance Computing

Event Details:

Thursday, April 13, 2023
1:00pm - 4:00pm PDT

SRCC and Stanford Libraries will be offering an Introduction to High Performance Computing course based the Software Carpentries curriculum Thursday, April 13th 1-4pm.  This course will be a brief introduction to fundamental HPC concepts.  Topics include:

  • Connecting to a remote HPC system
  • Scheduler Fundamentals
  • How to submit a SLURM job
  • Accessing software via Modules
  • Transferring files with remote computers
  • Running a parallel job
  • Using resources effectively

Only basic Linux shell (command line) knowledge is used for the course.  Going though this tutorial will be very helpful.

Please note:  This class is for people who are beginners to HPC and SLURM. We will not be going into a deep dive on SLURM or sbatch directives. The class is not for people who already have HPC/SLURM experience. Some Linux command line experience with navigating the filesystem (ls, and cd commands) and editing files (nano) is required.  A full service SUNetID is required for this class.
