In addition to the in-person training sessions, we provide pre-recorded content for many of our sessions.

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 as a three-part series on the UFIT Training site: Play icon.png

Or as a recording of the most recent Zoom session:

You can download a copy of the slides used from here.

Introduction to the Linux Command Line

This session will lead participants through some exercises that go over basic Linux commands such as 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 largely aimed at users who are new to the Command Line.

This session is available as a pre-recorded video:

Or as a recording of a live training session:

The handout and files for the session are now located in a git repository here: https://github.com/UFResearchComputing/Linux_training

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 part of the Software Carpentry Unix Shell training available in the data-shell.zip file on the setup page. This can be downloaded to you own computer and run using the Mac/Linux Terminal or MobaXterm terminal on Windows.

HiPerGator: SLURM Submission Scripts

In this session, participants will practice working with SLURM submission scripts using sample files. The training will cover the most common scheduler directives and how to tell SLURM the information it needs to run your jobs efficiently. Example scripts will be provided, though users are encouraged to bring their own scripts to work with. 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 30 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

Or as a recording of the most recent Zoom session:

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

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 session is available as a pre-recorded video:

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

Running Graphical Applications on HiPerGator with Xpra

Users can run applications with graphical user interfaces (GUI) on HiPerGator in the SLURM “gui” partition. Xpra is the software we use to connect to the graphics window of the application running on HiPerGator from your local computer. These videos walk through setting up and connecting to Xpra sessions.

The new gui/2 module is explained in this video: Play icon.png [5 min, 16 sec]

Also check out the Open on Demand video which covers many GUI applications: Play icon.png [5 min, 11 sec]

For the older, gui/1 modules, there are both Mac and Windows versions are available and are about 10 minutes each: Play icon.png

The GUI Programs page has additional information.

Running MATLAB on HiPerGator

Users walk through a hands-on examples using MATLAB at Research Computing. Participants will work with the MATLAB GUI, compiling code and submitting MATLAB jobs to the scheduler to run on the cluster.

This video is approximately 24 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

Users should also review the Matlab page for additional information.

Git and GitHub.com

While there is not a video associated with this, all of the content is available online.

Orientation Material for Courses using HiPerGator

For UF courses that use HiPerGator, please review our policies on teaching use of HiPerGator.

Additional Training Opportunities

In addition to the training sessions coordinated by UF Research Computing, we are aware of many training opportunities provided by other institutions and vendors. These are listed below.

Intel Software Tools Technical Webinar Series

This free webinar series presents tools, tips, and techniques that will help sharpen your development skills on developing and improving your high performance compute applications for multicore and manycore on Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. Expert technical teams at Intel as well as open source innovators discuss development tools, programming models, vectorization and execution models that will get your development efforts powered up to get the best out of your applications and platforms.

Full schedule and registration information is available here.

XSEDE

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment online training mostly lists html tutorials offered at the Cornell University. Offered tutorials cover general programming, scripting, parallel programming (concepts, message passing interface (MPI), openmp), visualisation, code improvement, and other topics.

The XSEDE Training Calendar includes many useful webcasts that are provided by a number of institutions. For most events registration is required.

TACC

Many TACC online training sessions are webcast and are listed in the XSEDE Training Calendar above. Training materials, recordings and webcasts are available from the TACC Course Materials site.
