HPC Compute Cluster Workshop

Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - 9:00am12:30pm

Clay England, Oak Ridge National Laboratory


The HPC Compute Cluster Workshop will provide a forum for HPC compute cluster admins and those interested in this topic to meet and discuss the challenges of administering this particular class of machine. Though this workshop will also be applicable to general *NIX admins, there are many specific topics related to cluster management, customer usage, and special software (such as schedulers and resource managers) to warrant a half-day workshop for the benefit of this niche community. Topics that will be discussed include cluster setup, day-to-day management strategies, common problems and possible solutions, user issues, and any other topics of interest to the attendees.
