Minnesota Supercomputing Institute
This tutorial will feature an in-room instructor at 575 Walter Library who is also broadcasting via Zoom. This sign-up is for one of 10 classroom chairs, if you would rather attend remotely, please sign up via the other Tutorial signup link.
This tutorial will first introduce you to the concept of interactive high performance computing, as distinct from and complementary to traditional batch computing. We will then give an overview of the interactive HPC services MSI supports, with particular focus on the OnDemand portal as well as the interactive features of the Slurm scheduling system. Attendees will learn how to access these services from their local devices, launch interactive sessions, and interact with services including the command line terminal, remote virtual desktops, Jupyter servers, and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring a personal/work laptop to gain hands-on experience.
