Job scheduling on Hoffman2 cluster

October 12, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
5628 Math Science Building

We will discuss how to effectively run jobs on Hoffman2 cluster. Hoffman2 cluster serves a wide spectrum of user applications and is almost always heavily loaded. Different kinds of jobs impose conflicting conditions in terms of job scheduling, given available computing resources. We will first review the components of Hoffman2 cluster, the shared cluster model, followed by fundamentals of using it’s job scheduler, Univa Grid Engine. Then a number of use cases will be discussed in details. The materials covered…

Introduction to MPI (Message Passing Interface)

October 13, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
5628 Math Sciences

MPI (message passing interface) is the de facto standard for distributed-memory parallel scientific computing. While the entire MPI API is quite extensive, this class will cover a number of key ingredients commonly used in practice. This class is useful for those who plan to start writing MPI code, and for those who would like to know how MPI works in order to operate an existing MPI code. Working knowledge of C and Fortran programming languages will be very helpful to…
