Using Slurm to Run Big Research Computing Jobs

Slurm (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) is a powerful system for managing and scheduling computing jobs that is very popular at large-scale research computing centers. The SSCC is currently running a pilot with a small Slurm cluster as we all learn more about it, but we anticipate that it will become the main way SSCC researchers run big research computing jobs.

In this workshop we'll introduce the core concepts of Slurm and show you how to use it. You'll learn how to submit Linux jobs to Slurm, specify your jobs' requirements, and figure out what those requirements are. Ideally you'll come to the workshops with one or more Linux jobs to run, and by the end of the workshop you'll have them running in Slurm.

If you have big computing jobs to run but have not yet learned to use Linux, sign up anyway. You'll learn much of what you need to know to run Linux jobs in the course of the workshop, and as time permits we'll cover the rest at the end for those who would benefit.
