Research Data Management (RDM) Week is happenig May 2-6, 2016 at the University of Alberta. As part of the program, WestGrid / Compute Canada staff based at the university are offering a number of ARC-related training sessions, including this special "post RDM Week" workshop.

This workshop session focuses on getting the most out of a cluster using a scheduler. Participants explore how to submit jobs, including more advanced topics such as job arrays, gpus and checkpointing. In the second part, participants discuss in greater detail how a scheduler works and how to use the knowledge to your advantage. The third part builds on the knowledge gained in the first two parts through the process of discovering why jobs are not running. While intermediate and advanced topics are covered, this section is intended to help HPC users of all levels become more proficient.
