2014/03 - OSC OnDemand

The March 2014 HPC Tech Talk (Tuesday, March 18th from 4-5PM) will provide some brief OSC updates, have a user-driven Q&A session, and will close with a live demonstration of OSC's OnDemand service. You can register for the WebEX session here. Slides are available below.

2014/02 - Computational Chemistry on the GPUs

The February 2014 SUG HPC Tech Talk focused on using the NVIDIA GPUs for computational chemistry. Slides are attached.

SUG HPC Tech Talks

Begining in February 2014 we started conducting nominally monthly online conference calls titled "HPC Tech Talks". These are intended to reach active users on our systems and provide an engagement opportunity for users to learn about recent changes to our production services, and for staff to learn about issues impacting the user community. Additionally, we use this opportunity to provide a more in-depth view of one particular topic.

We will be archiving materials from these calls here, for later reference for the user community.

ParaView

ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform application designed to visualize data sets of size varying from small to very large. ParaView was developed to support distributed computational models for processing large data sets and to create an open, flexible user interface.

Introduction to Linux / UNIX

Description

This brief course is designed to introduce users without UNIX or Linux experience to the core concepts and tools necessary to be productive on a UNIX or UNIX-like operating system. Includes hands-on exercises.

HOWTO: Add InCommon Authentication to Globus

(OPTIONAL) Adding InCommon Authentication 

Adding InCommon authentication to your Globus account allows you to login to Globus Online using your university credentials.  Using this process you can store your Globus username password for safe keeping, and instead use your university username and password to login.  If your already logged in to your university authentication system, logging in to Globus can be as simple as two clicks away.

Classroom Project Resource Guide

Welcome to OSC! This document includes some useful information to help your classroom use of our resources be effective.

Access: We suggest that students consider connecting to https://ondemand.osc.edu/ to access the HPC resources. All production supercomputing resources can be accessed via that website, without having to worry about client configuration.

New User Resource Guide

Welcome to OSC! This document provides some useful links to get you started.

If you are new to supercomputing, or to OSC, please visit http://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/getting-started for information about how our supercomputers are configured, and some guidance about appropriate usage of the various resources.

HOWTO: Transfer files using Globus Connect

Globus Connect Logo

Globus Connect is a reliable, high-performance file transfer platform allowing users to transfer large amounts of data seamlessly between systems.  It aims to make transfers a "click-and-forget" process by setting up configuration details in the background and automating fault recovery.  

Globus can be used for both file transfers between OSC and:
