About HPC everywhere

On this page:


Overview

HPC everywhere helps make Indiana University's research supercomputers more accessible to researchers and scientists by providing web-based access to high performance computing (HPC) tools and current system status information.

All of the HPC and external tools are available on the home page. Log in with your IU username and passphrase. The home page will then display an overview of jobs you have queued or running on the IU research supercomputers and a summary of your research storage and file system usage.

The home page also displays overall cluster and queue status information for the IU research supercomputers, and contains tiles for accessing a selection of HPC and external tools.

You also can sign the "SSH public key authentication to HPS systems" agreement from the home page.

HPC everywhere is a service of the UITS Research Technologies Scalable Compute Archive (SCA) group.

HPC tools

The following HPC tools are accessible from the HPC everywhere home page:

  • Pathfinder: Determine which IU research supercomputer best suits the needs of your project and/or your level of HPC experience.

    Pathfinder shows which compute resource is the best match for your needs based on your responses to a set of questions. If you are unsure about a response, leave it unselected; you can change your responses on the results page to see how they affect the outcome.

  • HPC@IU: HPC@IU lets you learn more about IU's research computing and storage systems. You can view the current status of each compute cluster and access other statistical information (queue wait times, users by discipline, resource usage by department, etc.).
  • HPC Applications: HPC Applications lets you search for and view details about software packages installed on IU's research supercomputers.
  • MyHPC: MyHPC lets you monitor the status of your jobs queued and/or running on IU's supercomputers. It also includes links to the Script Generator and Script Doctor tools.
  • Script Generator: Generate a script for running a batch job on an IU research supercomputer. Use the drop-downs, sliders, and other fields to select the compute system and other resources required for your job (for example, queue, wall time, nodes, cores per node, and virtual memory per node). You also can search for and load required software modules, and enter additional script commands. As you make your selections, Script Generator automatically displays your custom job script in the "Preview" window.

    To see an estimate of when your job will start, click Show Job Scheduler. The graph on the right will display the nodes available per hour with a red overlay to indicate when your job is expected to run based on the resource requirements you selected in Script Generator. You can use the drop-downs on the left to alter your selections for compute resource, queue, wall time, and number of nodes required. To return to Script Generator, click Show Script Generator.

External tools

The following external tools are accessible from the HPC everywhere home page:

  • Research Desktop (RED) Web Client:: Use the RED graphical desktop service from your web browser.
  • Access Management: Request an account on an IU supercomputer and manage your other IU computing accounts.
  • Status.IU: Access Status.IU to view the current status of UITS computing systems and services.
  • Globus Online: Set up access to your research data using Globus Online.
