ARC: Supercomputing for Beginners
Domain: A1 Knowledge base

TACE: A - Acquisition

Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

Hawk is Cardiff University’s supercomputer - hosted, maintained and developed by ARCCA/Super Computing Wales. This half-day course provides an overview of the cluster and explains how to use the system. It is a mix of presentation material and worked examples, which give users the chance to ask questions and run jobs in a controlled, friendly environment. By the end of the course, you should be able to access Hawk from a Windows PC, have a better understanding of the software environment (compilers, profilers and debugging tools available on the cluster), understand how to use the module environment (to load software) and be able to submit jobs to the system (through the Slurm job scheduler). This course will also provide an overview of some of the other courses and services provided which will enable users to improve their usage of advanced research computing facilities (both ARCCA facilities but also applicable to Linux clusters in general).
This course is open to all Cardiff University staff and students with an interest in using the University’s supercomputer system.
