Introduction to Cheyenne

11/03/2016 - 10:00am

As NCAR’s Cheyenne supercomputer nears start of production in January, the CISL User Services Section is scheduling online and in-person tutorials to help users prepare to work with the new system. The first session is at 10 a.m. MDT on Thursday, November 3, at the Mesa Lab in Boulder. Another is being planned for early December.

The 60- to 90-minute tutorial will cover typical workflows in the Cheyenne environment as well as performance and operational differences between the Yellowstone and Cheyenne systems. Topics to be covered include:

  • Technical specifications for Cheyenne and the expanded GLADE file systems

  • The Cheyenne computing environment

  • Accessing software, including compilers and MPI libraries

  • Submitting batch jobs using the PBS scheduler

The session will conclude with a Q&A session, so please bring other general questions and concerns not covered above. Register to attend in person—at the VisLab in NCAR’s Mesa Lab (ML4) in Boulder—or via webcast by selecting a link below:
