This one-day course is a follow-up to the sciCORE course "Introduction to HPC (sciCORE cluster)". We will focus on different aspects related to the everyday usage of HPC facilities in order to enable an efficient and productive framework to develop your research. These include (among other topics) advanced SLURM usage, I/O management, and profiling.
This course is aimed at researchers that want to deepen their knowledge of the usage of HPC facilities. In particular, those that already took the introductory course to high-performance computing (although it is not a prerequisite).
At the end of the course, the participants are expected to:
Have a good understanding of advanced capabilities of SLURM. Including dependencies, parallelism, and monitoring
Know good practices regarding the data management and its relation with the file system. This will include how to work with workflows and the usage of Labkey
Learn how to use the sciCORE infrastructure for scientific applications (including hands-on exercises)
Know the basics of profiling code and the impact of scaling
How to speed up Python code
The basics of parallelize in R
How to manage errors
Have an overview of online production tools such us Git, Slack, and Overleaf
Have some advanced tips for the command line
