TUTORIAL: High Throughput Computation on the Open Science Grid (Separate Registration Required)

Time 10/15/18 01:00PM-04:00PM

Room Hibiscus 2

Session Abstract

Would you like to use distributed resources of the Open Science Grid, or just want to learn how to do large-scale high throughput computing? The format of this tutorial is a mix of lecture and hands-on exercises, so please bring your laptop and make sure you have an SSH client installed. You will be provided with a training account on OSG Connect which, during the tutorial, will be upgraded to a full user account.

After the tutorial, you will have full access to the OSG, know how to run and scale up workloads, and manage your data. If time permits, the OSG User Support team will also help get your own workload set up for execution on OSG. Topics to include:

  • Introduction to OSG Connect

  • Job Scheduling with HTCondor

  • Scaling Up Workloads

  • Managing data

Ideal participants include researchers and computing facilitators interested in learning the principles of distributed high throughput computation on shared cyberinfrastructure.
