We have made a few examples of how to use the batch system, both from the command line and through a batch submit file.
If you are connecting to HPC2N from a computer running Linux or Unix, you have a number of options. The most obvious and commonly used one is probably the built-in SSH client SSH. Several others exist, here are some of the more common ones:
Intel Xeon Phi x200, codename Knights Landing (KNL), is second generation MIC architecture product from Intel. At HPC2N 36 nodes, as a part of Kebnekaise, are equipped with Intel Xeon Phi 7250 CPUs. See our description of Intel Knight Landing for more information about the nodes.
At a high level there are three key aspects to achieving code performance on KNL:
NOTE: If you have read the official EasyBuild instructions there will have been mention of a configuration file. When installing software as a user, you do NOT need an EasyBuild configuration file, and it can even cause problems to have one.
This guide will let you install software (and create a module for easy loading) to your $HOME/Public directory, under a subdirectory called easybuild.
VASP has been built in both a normal CPU-only version and a GPU-enabled version.
Depending on which toolchain is loaded one or the other is available.
Use ml spider vasp to see which versions are available, and then look at the specific versions with ml spider VASP/<some-version>, to see which toolchains are available.
