Get ready for Cheyenne: User tutorials start 3 November
NCAR's new 5.34-petaflops supercomputer Cheyenne will begin production in January 2017, so CISL is offering tutorials for users to learn how to get the most out of this system. Taught by consultants in CISL's User Services Section, the online and in-person tutorials will prepare users to work with the new system.
Each 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 will 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.
- A question-and-answer session to cover all users' questions and concerns.
The second tutorial is being planned for early December.
