Introduction to Linux and High Performance Computing

Meet Linux and the command line for interacting with our Spartan High Performance Computing service

If your desktop system is too slow for your big datasets, or the problem is too computationally intensive, High Performance Computing (HPC) is the tool you need. At the University of Melbourne we have one general purpose HPC systems, Spartan, which is available to researchers.

This introductory course will provide an overview of this system and the Linux command-line, and how to write Slurm scripts so you can submit data or task parallel jobs. We include plenty of hands-on examples of running research applications with Spartan.

This course is FREE. To attend you must be from an AAF institution (this includes University of Melbourne and surrounding institutes).

Duration: 5 hours

Format: 1 day intensive

Frequency: Quarterly

Notes:Bring a laptop and a desire to learn about supercomputers.
