HPC file systems and what users need to consider for appropriate and efficient usage https://dresa.org.au/materials/hpc-file-systems-and-what-users-need-to-consider-for-appropriate-and-efficient-usage Three videos on miscellaneous aspects of HPC usage - useful reference for new users of HPC systems. 1 – General overview of different file systems that might be available on HPC. The video goes through shared file systems such as /home and /scratch, local compute node file systems (local scratch or $TMPDIR) and storage file system. It outlines what users need to consider if they wish to use any of these in their workflows. 2 – Overview of the different directories that might be present on HPC. These could include /home, /scratch, /opt, /lib and lib64, /sw and others. 3 – Overview of the Message-of-the-day file and the message that is displayed to users every time they log in. This displays info about general help and often current problems or upcoming outages. QCIF Training (training@qcif.edu.au) HPC, high performance computer, File systems

Data storytelling is a powerful way achieving this, by conveying your ideas in a clear and memorable way. This interactive webinar focuses on developing your data storytelling skills by introducing a range of data visualisation techniques that you can use to combine the three elements of data, visuals and narrative into a meaningful and memorable story. By using these three elements, you can weave a story about your research for an array of audiences, in a way that they will connect with and remember. 2024-07-30 13:30:00 UTC 2024-07-30 15:00:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] webinar open_to_all []

    Introduction to the Unix Shell https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-the-unix-shell-dd318145-38b9-4dec-aeff-5beff341f8c0 The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including 'high-performance computing' supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2024-11-25 09:00:00 UTC 2024-11-26 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []

Containers are also an effective way of achieving a reproducible analysis pipeline, allowing researchers to ensure that the same version of an application and consistent computational environment are used each time. This short introductory course will show you how to find and use Singularity containers in a typical university HPC (high performance computing) context. The workshop does not cover the use of the Docker container platform, although you will learn how to import Docker containers into Singularity. 2024-10-29 09:00:00 UTC 2024-10-29 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []
