The aims of this training are :
1 - to provide an overview of the existing High Performance Computing architectures
2 - to introduce the Tier1 supercomputer Jade which is hosted at CINES, as well as the PRACE services offered on this system
The first part of this training will be a theoretical course about
the architecture of supercomputers, parallel programming languages,
and the user environment on Jade. The second part will be practice on
Jade : we will use some examples to learn how to compile and submit
jobs on the cluster, and how to perform some basic optimizations.
The participants should become familiar with the HPC architectures
and self-reliant with the use of the cluster Jade.
Basic Linux, FORTRAN or C programming language
