The HPC wiki

About the wiki

This wiki contains materials used by the Linux and HPC workshop held regularly at Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (DCCN). The aim of this workshop is to provide researchers the basic knowledage to use the High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster for data analysis. During the workshop, the wiki is used in combination with lectures and hands-on exercises; nevertheless, contents of the wiki are written in such that they can also be used for self-learning and references.

There are two major sessions in this wiki. The Linux basic consists of the usage of the Linux operating system and an introduction to the Bash scripting language. After following the session, you should be able to create text-based data files in a Linux system, and write a bash script to perform simple data analysis on the file. The cluster usage focuses on the general approach of running computations on the Torque/Moab cluster. After learning this session, you should be knowing how to distribute data analysis computations to the Torque/Moab cluster at DCCN.
