Introduction to the programming and usage of the supercomputing resources in Jülich

CET
Description
Through the John von Neumann Institute for Computing, Research Centre Juelich provides two major high-performance computing resources to scientific user groups from throughout Germany and Europe. The aim of this course is to give new users of the supercomputing resources an introductory overview of the systems and their usage, and to help them in making efficient use of their allocated resources.
 
Topics covered are:
  • Overview of the supercomputer systems
  • Usage of the supercomputer systems
  • Grid access via UNICORE
  • Blue Gene architecture
  • JUROPA/HPC-FF architecture
  • Programming (compilers, MPI, OpenMP, debuggers, tools)
  • Performance tuning
  • Libraries and application software
  • Postprocessing and Visualization
  • I/O and data management
