Casper user documentation updates and upcoming tutorial

November 7, 2018

User documentation about how to start interactive jobs and batch jobs on NCAR’s new Casper data analysis and visualization cluster now includes additional detail. Starting jobs on Casper nodes has a new section on how to take advantage of the system’s local NVMe solid-state disk (SSD) storage. It also provides more information to help users specify which of the system’s multiple types of nodes to use for running their jobs.

CISL encourages users of the Geyser and Caldera systems, which will be decommissioned at the end of the year, to migrate their work to the Casper cluster soon. In addition to contacting cislhelp@ucar.edu for assistance, users can learn more about the system in a tutorial scheduled for November 14. See this CISL Daily Bulletin announcement to get more information and register.
