PACE Clusters Orientation

Download the slides

PACE Clusters Orientation provides new or existing users with the fundamental information needed to get started using PACE clusters, including Phoenix, Hive, and Firebird. We strongly encourage all PACE users to attend at least one of these classes.

Note

Beginning with the October 19, 2022, session, PACE Orientation will use the Slurm scheduler, already deployed on Hive and launching on Phoenix beginning October 10. New Firebird users after October 4 can join a PACE Consulting Session for training on the Torque/Moab scheduler until Firebird migrates to Slurm.

Presentation topics covered include:

  • What is PACE?
  • PACE participation model
  • Using the home, data, and scratch storage
  • Migrating your files to/from PACE managed clusters
  • Submitting and monitoring jobs using the scheduler
  • How to work with batch, interactive, and GUI sessions
  • Using the software repository via modules
  • Getting help

Format: 105 minutes of presentation

Please contact PACE support (pace-support@oit.gatech.edu) if you have any questions or concerns.
