This workshop will provide a brief overview of the the new HPC environment and is intended for current Flux and Armis users. We will use the temporary Beta HPC cluster to demonstrate how jobs will be submitted and managed under the new Great Lakes, Armis2, and Lighthouse clusters available later this year.
There are many differences between the familiar Flux environment and that of the new HPC clusters, including a new batch scheduling system, a new interactive batch job environment, a new HPC web portal, a new module environment, and a new on-demand-only job accounting system.
We will cover these differences in the workshop, and provide hands-on training in creating and running job submission scripts in the new HPC environment. Students are expected to be conversant with the Linux command line and have experience in creating, submitting, and troubleshooting PBS batch scripts.
