As NCAR’s Cheyenne supercomputer nears start of production in January, the CISL User Services Section is scheduling online and in-person tutorials to help users prepare to work with the new system. The first session is at 10 a.m. MDT on Thursday, November 3, at the Mesa Lab in Boulder. Another is being planned for early December.

The 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 to be covered 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

The session will conclude with a Q&A session, so please bring other general questions and concerns not covered above. Register to attend in person—at the VisLab in NCAR’s Mesa Lab (ML4) in Boulder—or via webcast by selecting a link below:

NCAR/CISL is hosting a Globus tutorial and developer workshop October 25 and 26 at the Center Green campus (CG1) in Boulder. The workshop is open to all UCAR staff and is organized and led by the Globus development team. It is targeted at developers building web applications for research, system administrators who have deployed or are planning to deploy Globus, and others who are interested in learning more about the research data management service.

The workshop is free to participants, who will need to bring a laptop and are asked to register here. Space is limited. For more information, see the GlobusWorld Tour announcement.
