Introduction to the Red Raider Cluster

The new RedRaider cluster is available now for all HPCC users following a maintenance shutdown January 4-21, 2021 to merge the previous Quanah CPU and new Nocona CPU and Matador GPU cluster components. To familiarize users in the details of the use of Slurm and all RedRaider cluster components, the HPCC held two sessions of Advanced User Training in December 2020 and January 2021. This training provided extensive information on using the new Red Raider cluster, submitting jobs to the new workload manager Slurm, and building and running applications for the new CPU AMD and GPU Nvidia architectures. Slides and a recording of the most recent session held January 19, 2021 are available below.

To make the best use of this user training, participants should already have requested and received HPCC access for their eRaider account, and installed and configured an SSH client on their computer for remote access.

Upcoming Sessions:

  • This is a transitional training that had been discontinued.
