Advanced research computing on the Great Lakes Cluster

By |

OVERVIEW

This workshop will cover some more advanced topics in computing on the U-M Great Lakes Cluster. Topics to be covered include a review of common parallel programming models and basic use of Great Lakes; dependent and array scheduling; workflow scripting using bash; high-throughput computing using launcher; parallel processing in one or more of Python, R, and MATLAB; and profiling of parallel code using Allinea Performance Reports and Allinea MAP.

Introduction to Research Computing on the Great Lakes Cluster

By |

OVERVIEW

This workshop will introduce you to high performance computing on the Great Lakes cluster.  After a brief overview of the components of the cluster and the resources available there, the main body of the workshop will cover creating batch scripts and the options available to run jobs, and hands-on experience in submitting, tracking, and interpreting the results of submitted jobs. By the end of the workshop, every participant should have created a submission script, submitted a job, tracked its progress, and collected its output. Additional tools including high-performance data transfer services and interactive use of the cluster will also be covered.

Introduction to the Linux Command Line

By |

OVERVIEW

This course will familiarize the student with the basics of accessing and interacting with Linux computers using the GNU/Linux operating system’s Bash shell, also generically referred to as “the command line”. Topics include: a brief overview of Linux, the Bash shell, navigating the file system, basic commands, shell redirection, permissions, processes, and the command environment. The workshop will also provide a quick introduction to nano a simple text editor that will be used in subsequent workshops to edit files.

ARC Director Sharon Broude Geva re-elected vice-chair of Coalition for Academic Scientific Computing

By | General Interest, News

Sharon Broude Geva, the Director of Advanced Research Computing at the University of Michigan, has been re-elected vice-chair of the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC).

Founded in 1989, CASC advocates for the use of advanced computing technology to accelerate scientific discovery for national competitiveness, global security, and economic success. The organization’s members represent 84 institutions of higher education and national labs.

The vice-chair position is one of four elected CASC executive officers. The officers work closely as a team with the director of CASC. The vice-chair also leads CASC meeting program committees, is responsible for recruitment of new members, substitutes for the chair in his or her absences, and assists with moderating CASC meetings.

Geva served as CASC secretary in 2015 and 2016, and one term as vice-chair in 2017. Her next term as vice-chair is effective for the 2018 calendar year.

The other executive officers for 2017 are are Rajendra Bose, Chair, Columbia University; Neil Bright, Secretary, Georgia Institute of Technology; and Andrew Sherman, Treasurer, Yale University. Curt Hillegas of Princeton University is immediate past chair.
