This session is a general introduction to how to use UCLA Hoffman2 Cluster. The objective is to familiarize current and potential cluster users with the Hoffman2 Cluster, so they can make the best use of UCLA computational resources. The following topics will be covered:
1. How to access and login to the Hoffman2 Cluster, primarily in terminal/command-line mode.
2. Exploration of how to run various computational tasks on or from the Hoffman2 Cluster, illustrated by hands-on example transcripts.
3. A brief introduction to Univa Grid Engine (UGE) commands and how to achieve more control over resources.
This session is appropriate for entry-level and mid-level cluster users. No prerequisite knowledge is required, but some working experience with basic Unix system commands and Fortran or C programming languages will be helpful.
