Course overview

We begin with a short (optional) introduction to the Linux operating system that is used on HPC2N's compute clusters. Then, we continue with a walk-through of the Kebnekaise system, including the GPUs and KNLs. After lunch, we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs. During the hands-on you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job to the Kebnekaise cluster.

The course will be completely online and we will use Zoom.

Participation is open to all existing and prospective users of HPC from Swedish institutions.
