Slurm is a scheduler that is used to access compute resources on high-performance computing (HPC) systems. Functional knowledge of slurm is required to use multiple HPC systems managed by Advanced Research Computing, including both Cascades and Huckleberry, and is also used to manage many other HPC systems world-wide. This course will provide an introduction to essential concepts associated with Slurm along and an overview of the basic functionality.

As a result of this one-hour introduction, you will learn:
(1) how to obtain an allocation of compute-hours for your research group;
(2) how to obtain an interactive session on a compute node;
(3) how to write a basic job submission script;
(4) how to submit and monitor batch jobs; and
(5) best practices for use of the HPC systems.
