Running Big Research Computing Jobs at the SSCC

This workshop will teach you how to run big research computing jobs at the SSCC.

We'll discuss the computing resources the SSCC makes available, how to run jobs interactively on Linstat, and how to submit jobs to the SSCC's Slurm cluster. We'll also discuss the minor changes you may need to make to your code so it can run on a Linux server. Ideally you'll come to the class with a job you need to run and have it running by the end of the class.

If you've never used Linux before, we suggest taking Open OnDemand: Linux Made Easy as well.

You must be a member of the Social Science Computing Cooperative to use the SSCC's Linstat and Slurm clusters. SSCC accounts meant for class work do not have access to Linstat and Slurm; if you have a Z: drive (Linux home directory) when you log into Winstat you are a member of the Cooperative with an account meant for research.
