Tutorial Details: Checkpointing HPC Applications

Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 01:00 pm - 04:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI, Jeffrey McDonald, MSI

Checkpointing HPC applications has been a challenging, but highly desired functionality for saving the state of long-running applications. This functionality hedges against failure modes from unexpected events that can cause premature failure of an application.

This workshop will teach MSI users the available checkpointing tools that MSI supports and how to use them for checkpointing your application without modifying the code. A hands-on session of 1.5 hours will be provided, allowing attendees to implement the procedures for checkpointing your jobs.

Level: Intermediate
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of Unix and parallel computing
