Training Juelich 2010

DEISA Training Courses: 13 - 14 January 2009; FZJ, Jülich, Germany

DEISA is running two training courses at the Jülich Supercomputer Centre in January 2009. Both courses will be based around a number of practical programming exercises.

 

  • The first course on Tuesday 13th January is an "Introduction to the DEISA Infrastructure". This will cover the basic aspects of the DEISA distributed supercomputer environment and the software tools that are used to access it.
    No prior knowledge is assumed for this course.
    Timetable:
    09:00 Overview of DEISA project and HPC systems
    09:30 Basic DEISA software stack
    10:00 Introduction to UNICORE
    10:30 COFFEE
    11:00 UNICORE practical session
    12:30 LUNCH
    13:30 Introduction to DESHL
    14:00 DESHL practical session
    15:00 COFFEE
    15:30 Overview of Globus services
    16:15 Globus practical (or continue UNICORE and DESHL practicals)
    17:30 CLOSE
  • The second course on Wednesday 14th January is an "Introduction to the Blue Gene P" which is aimed at users planning to port their codes to this new architecture. The course will introduce the basic features of the Blue Gene design and cover the details of the three Blue Gene machines within the DEISA infrastructure. People on the course will be given access to the Blue Gene P at FZJ, JUGENE, which is the fastest supercomputer in Europe. DEISA staff will be on hand to help users to port their codes and perform test runs.
    We assume that those attending this course will already have a parallel application that has previously been run on some other system.
    Timetable:
    09:00 Introduction to the Blue Gene architecture
    10:00 The IDRIS Blue Gene system
    10:30 COFFEE
    11:00 The FZJ JUGENE System
    11:30 Basic practical session (log on, compile, submit a test job)
    12:30 LUNCH
    13:30 Performance Tools
    14:00 Hands-on practical: porting user applications
    15:00 COFFEE
    15:30 Hands-on practical: porting user applications (continued)
    17:00 CLOSE

Previous training courses

DEISA Training Courses: 17 - 18 September 2008; Portici, Naples

DEISA is running two training courses at the ENEA Research Centre in Portici near Naples, Italy. Both courses will be based around a number of practical sessions for which users must supply their own wireless laptop.

 

  • The first course on Wednesday 17 September is an "Introduction to the DEISA Infrastructure". This will cover the basic aspects of the DEISA distributed supercomputer environment and the software tools that are used to access it.
    No prior knowledge is assumed for this course.
  • The second course on Thursday 18th September is on "Parallel IO using MPI-IO". This covers the fundamental concepts and usage of the parallel IO functions contained in the Message-Passing Interface standard. This area is becoming increasingly important as scientific datasets increase in size, and reading from and writing to disk starts to become a serious bottleneck on large parallel machines.
    The course assumes that you already have basic practical knowledge of the MPI programming model and that you are able to write simple programs using basic MPI functions such as send, receive and reduce.
