Cheyenne users can now run a “qpeek” script to check on the progress of their running jobs. The script inspects a specified job’s stdout log by default. Documentation added to Managing and monitoring jobs describes how to check stderr instead, and how to merge stdout and stderr in a job script so that qpeek can check both while the job is running.

The Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium’s 7th annual High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium, August 15-17 in Boulder, will feature an innovative “Keynote Debate” on the future of HPC architecture. In another keynote, New York filmmaker, composer and director Kenji Williams will speak about his NASA-powered data visualization spectacle, the film “BELLA GAIA.”

Keynote debate participants will be Marc Hamilton, Vice President of Solutions Architecture and Engineering at NVIDIA; Mike Vildibill, Vice President of Exascale Development Programs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise; Jerry Lotto, Director HPC and Technical Computing at Mellanox; and William Magro, Chief Technologist for HPC Software at Intel. Dr. Thomas Hauser, Director of Research Computing at CU-Boulder and RMACC Chair, will act as debate leader, and Tiffany Trader, Managing Editor of HPCwire, will moderate the debate.

The symposium’s technical program features six concurrent tracks covering a wide range of advanced computing topics, with a particular emphasis on data analytics and visualization. See the RMACC site for more information and to register to attend.
