Advanced Research Computing: An Introduction to USING ‘Raven’ the Super Computer / Maximising your use of the University’s Supercomputer service

1/2 day

Raven is Cardiff University’s High Performance Computer, hosted and maintained by ARCCA. This half-day course provides an overview of the computer and explains how to use the system. It is a mix of presentation material and worked examples, which give users the chance to ask questions and run jobs in a controlled, friendly environment. By the end of the course, you should be able to access the Raven from a Windows PC, have a better understanding of the software environment (compilers, profilers and debugging tools available on the Machine), understand how to use the module environment (to load software) and be able to submit jobs to the system (PBS Pro job scheduler). This course will also provide an overview of some of the other courses provided which will enable users to improve the usage of advanced research computing facilities (both ARCCA facilities but also applicable to Linux clusters in general).

Prerequisite: An account on Raven is required.
