Introduction to Job Submission, Scheduling, and Queueing on Savio training
Monday, November 9, 2020, 3:40-5pm
via Zoom (we will send the Zoom info after you register)

This training will discuss how the Slurm job scheduler works in general and how it is configured on Savio. The training will help you to understand how jobs are prioritized, why your job isn't running yet (or at all), and when your job will run. We'll also discuss how to submit various kinds of jobs, including parallel jobs.

All are welcome to attend, and there are no prerequisites, but the training is designed for those who have submitted jobs on Savio. If you haven't submitted jobs before,
it would still be helpful to have a Savio account that you are able to log in to and to have a little bit of familiarity with using a UNIX-style command line (e.g., the Terminal on a Mac, or using the Linux command line).

If you'd like a basic tutorial on using the command line, please see: https://github.com/berkeley-scf/tutorial-unix-basics or https://swcarpentry.github.io/shell-novice
