Recorded Trainings

For the topics below, the link on the orange and blue play icon (Play icon.png) links to a studio recorded version of the training material. Those tend to be higher quality, but also older and potentially somewhat outdated. The Zoom icon (ZoomLogo.png) links to the most recent recording of a live session. The Zoom recordings may have participant Q&A and additional information added during a live session, but tend to be the most recent information.

HiPerGator Account Training

All new HiPerGator users are required to take the HiPerGator Account training: Link and overview on this page.

Introduction to Research Computing and HiPerGator

Intended for new users, this training provides a general overview of the UF Research Computing facilities and basic usage of HiPerGator.
This training is available in three parts:

Or as a recording of the most recent Zoom session:ZoomLogo.pngRecording of the January 18, 2024 session.
You can download a copy of the slides used from here.

Introduction to the Linux Command Line

This session will lead users new to the Command Line through some exercises that go over basic Linux commands. These include moving around the file system, making directories, moving and copying files, etc. We will also go over some of the applications you can use on your computer to connect to and move files to and from HiPerGator.

This session is available as a pre-recorded video or Zoom recording: Play icon.png

The handout and files for the session are now located in a git repository here:
The handout can be downloaded as a PDF file.

The molecules folder used in the training is at /data/training/LinuxCLI/molecules.

For those wishing to use this training outside of HiPerGator, the molecules folder is in the data folder in the repository. There are also directions for non-HiPerGator use in the file or as a PDF. The repository can be downloaded to your own computer and run there.

HiPerGator: SLURM Submission Scripts

In this session, participants will practice working with SLURM submission scripts using sample files, but are encourage to bring their own scripts as well. The training will cover the most common scheduler directives and how to tell SLURM the information it needs to run your jobs efficiently. This session assumes a basic familiarity with the Unix command line and will be aimed at beginning to intermediate users. See the Introduction to the Linux Command Line Training for help with Linux.

This session is available as a pre-recorded video: This video is approximately 35 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

The files used in this video are on the Sample_SLURM_Scripts page and on the cluster in /data/training/SLURM/.

The slides from the training can be downloaded here.

Getting Started in AI

This session in our Getting Started with AI series will introduce PyTorch for image classification using Jupyter Notebooks running on HiPerGator.

Users will have hands-on exercises covering the steps of preparing data, and training and validating a neural network model for image classification.

If you are unfamiliar with Jupyter Notebooks, we recommend watching the Jupyter training first.

The Jupyter notebooks used for the training are on GitHub: link= DL_pytorch_CNNDL_pytorch_CNN

HiPerGator: SLURM Submission Scripts for MPI Jobs

This session will go into depth on the details of scheduling MPI jobs on HiPerGator. Efficiently running MPI applications requires an understanding of both how to specify the needed resources as well as the layout and properties of the available hardware. This session will provide examples from several commonly used applications and provide guidelines for users to optimize their own runs.

This video is approximately 25 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

The files used in this video are on the Sample_SLURM_Scripts page and on the cluster in /data/training/SLURM/.

The slides used in this workshop can be downloaded here.

Running Graphical Applications on HiPerGator

Users can run applications with graphical user interfaces (GUI) on HiPerGator either using Open on Demand or using the gui module and submitting jobs from the command line.

This video provides and overview of Open on Demand, which offers many GUI applications: Play icon.png [5 min, 11 sec]

The most recent Zoom session, covering Open on Demand is also available: ZoomLogo.png Recording of the February 15th, 2024 session.

The GUI Programs page has additional information.

Jupyter Hub and Jupyter Notebooks and Managing Conda/Mamba Environments

This session covers using Jupyter Notebooks through and Open on Demand.

For additional information on Jupyter at Research Computing see the Jupyter Notebooks page.
