Upcoming Training

Fall is fast arriving, and with it comes a new roster of RC training sessions.
The following workshops and sessions will be offered at both at FAS and HCSPH.
Training sessions, unless otherwise noted, run 30-45 minutes. Workshop times vary.

HSPH users may also be interested in training provided by the HCSPH BioInfo Core

Registration : Registration is not required unless otherwise noted, but seating is limited, so come early.

This session will dive further into Unix core-utilities including sed, grep, and awk. We will also cover the basics in bash shell scripting, which should help you think about automating processes and building more complex job scripts.

Having issues wading through which of the 3000+ pieces of software installed on Odyssey you should be using? Still getting "command not found" or missing a shared object dependency? This session will illuminate the simplicities and intricacies of using software on Odyssey. We'll address: setting up your environment; the Lmod module system and how it works to your advantage and updating perl / R / python modules & packages in your environment.

Tuesday October 17, 2017 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
 

This session is presented by our partners in the HSPH BioInfo Core.

Location: Building FXB, Room G1

For this workshop, we will be using R to perform a variety of advanced plotting methods. Using several R packages (ggplot2, ggrepel, pheatmap, etc.), we will learn how to change from a wide data format to a long data format for plotting purposes, how to label and/or repel individual data points on a scatter plot, and how to create heatmaps and volcano plots.
Prerequisite: Beginner R or Intro R workshop

* Registration Is Required *

Presented by Mathworks, this session introduces tools and techniques for distributing code and writing parallel algorithms in MATLAB. The session shows how to use Parallel Computing Toolbox to speed up existing code and scale up across multiple computers using MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS). Attendees who are working with long-running simulations, or large data sets, will benefit from the hands-on demonstrations and exercises in the course.

Please bring a laptop for hands-on exercises. An FAS RC account is required for the DCS portion of the session. If you are not eligible for a FASRC account, you can follow along with another class participant.

The class portion of the session will run from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM. An additional breakout interactive session will run from 1:30 PM -4:00 PM for those with additional questions or wishing for more hands-on time.

0 signed up so far. Limit: 35.

Now that you know how to submit a basic job script to SLURM, knowing the appropriate resource needs (queues, number of cores, memory, storage, time, etc) for your jobs can be puzzling, but it can be a relatively straightforward task. In this session, we will provide you the tools needed to make the most efficient use of RC cluster resources, which will ultimately lead to more research throughput.

Are you not getting the expected output from your job? Is your job running slower than expected? In this seminar, we will focus on increasing your troubleshooting skills and how to translate common errors. There are a few simple things to include in every job script that will help, as well, there are some common Unix tools to learn. In addition, we will cover the types of information you need to provide RC when you do encounter the unexpected. More-or-less, "help us, help you" to accelerate the time to solution. You are encouraged to bring your laptop and follow along with the examples.

There are three main types of parallel workflows: pleasantly parallel (job-array), tightly coupled (SMP threads), distributed parallelism (MPI). Each of these workflows has a different requirement when submitting to the SLURM job scheduler. In this session, we will cover the basic concepts around parallel processing and provide examples on how best to submit these types of jobs.
