NeSI Webinar: Make the most of your NeSI HPC allocation
26 February 2020
12:00 - 1:00 pm NZT
Online / Zoom Videoconference

If effectively anticipating your job’s HPC resource requirements is a skill that you want to develop, come along to this “Quick Tips” webinar. Anthony Shaw from New Zealand eScience Infrastructure (NeSI) will demonstrate how you can easily monitor the efficiency of your HPC jobs, and why doing so could help you reduce your job’s queueing time.

This free, 1-hour webinar will cover:

  • Which SLURM commands can help you view how efficiently your job ran (eg. sacct),
  • what does an efficient job look like in terms of CPU utilisation, and
  • tips for optimising job configuration and reducing your queue time

This webinar is for anyone working on NeSI, but is especially helpful for those looking to reduce the time their projects spend in the queue. (More efficient jobs will have less effect on your Fair Share score, resulting in shorter queue times)

No prerequisites are required to attend this webinar.
