CBE HPC cluster introduction
This course provides an introduction to the CBE ("CLIP Batch Environment") high-performance computing cluster.
Instructor: András Aszódi.
Number of participants: minimum 5, maximum 10.
Topics and schedule
Length: The course takes four hours with two short breaks.
- Introduction to the cluster: architecture, storage layout, access.
- Work environment setup using modules.
- Data management, job submission, queuing system, job scripting.
Because the cluster can be accessed only through the command line, familiarity with basic UNIX commands such as ls, cd, cp, pwd is required. The UNIX command line course provides a good introduction.
This is a hands-on course. Participants must bring a laptop with them. Under Windows, they must have the PuTTY remote login utility installed. Linux or Mac computers already have the necessary tools to connect to the cluster, so no extra software installation is necessary.
