Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

Itasca, an HP ProLiant BL280c G6 Linux Cluster, is a new and important component of computing resources at MSI. This tutorial will help users port parallel (OpenMP and MPI) codes onto this machine.

We will give an overview of the queuing system and compiling and debugging tools, as well as examples of programs that can take advantage of this computer. In addition, we will discuss some tips on how to improve the performance and scalability of an application.

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Knowledge of Linux, FORTRAN or C programming language
