If effectively anticipating your job’s HPC resource requirements is a skill that you want to develop, come along to NeSI’s next “Quick Tips” webinar: Make the most of your NeSI HPC allocation.
NeSI’s Anthony Shaw will demonstrate how you can easily monitor the efficiency of your HPC jobs, and why doing so could help you reduce your job’s queueing time.
This free, 1 hour webinar will cover:
- Which SLURM commands can help you view how efficiently your job ran (eg. sacct),
- what does an efficient job look like in terms of CPU utilisation, and
- tips for optimising job configuration and reducing your queue time
This webinar is for anyone working on NeSI, but is especially helpful for those looking to reduce the time their projects spend in the queue. (More efficient jobs will have less effect on your Fair Share score, resulting in shorter queue times)
