Dealing with Complex Workflows: Managing a Large Number of Jobs

Container technology is a method of packaging an application so it can be run, with its dependencies, isolated from other processes. This course provides an overview of container technology with a focus on the Singularity container platform as an example on the Shaheen supercomputer and Ibex cluster. We encourage early users who want to start experimenting with the technology to attend the training and join us for the follow-up discussion. The agenda of the training is as follows: • Why containers? • What is a container? • Container solutions for HPC • Demos on how to use Singularity containers on Ibex and Shaheen PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST who are interested in container technology for computational and data sciences. Basic knowledge of Linux command line is required. PREREQUISITES

This course focuses on handling workflows composed of hundreds or thousands of tasks, each producing a few small files. Preparing, running, and managing such a workflow is not an easy task on a supercomputer, since Shaheen is de- signed to better support a few jobs on a higher number of nodes and producing less but larger files. In this course, attendees will be introduced to a set of tools to increase their productivity and deal efficiently with a large number of jobs on KSL machines. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for research professionals from KAUST who are or are planning to run large computational campaigns with workflows composed of hundreds or thousands of tasks. Basic knowledge of a scripting language like bash or python is required. PREREQUISITES
