Introduction to the Flux cluster and batch computing

February 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

East Hall B254

This workshop will provide a brief overview of the components of the Flux Cluster. The main body of the workshop will cover the resource manager and scheduler, creating submissions scripts to run jobs and the options available in them, and hands-on experience. By the end of the workshop, every participant should have created a submission script, submitted a job, tracked its progress, and collected its output. Participants will have several working examples from which to build their own submissions scripts in their own home directories.
