HPC everywhere beta

On this page:


Overview

The HPC everywhere beta portal provides web-based access to high-performance computing (HPC) tools to help make Indiana University's research supercomputers more accessible to researchers and scientists.

By default, the home page shows current load levels of the various compute systems. You will be prompted to log in to access all available tools. Once you log in via CAS, you will see a recent summary of your jobs and storage usage. You can also sign the "SSH public-key authentication to HPS systems" user agreement from the home page.

Available tools and modules

The following HPC tools are accessible from the HPC everywhere beta portal:

Pathfinder

The Supercomputing Pathfinder helps you determine which IU research supercomputer best suits the needs of your project and/or your level of HPC experience.

The tool has you fill out a simple questionnaire to get a list of supercomputers recommended for your needs. You can adjust your responses to see how they affect the scores.

HPC@IU

HPC@IU lets you learn more about IU supercomputers and view the current status of each compute cluster. You can also access other statistical information, including queue wait-times, usage by department, etc. Only the first tab is available without logging into CAS.

MyHPC

MyHPC lets you monitor the status of your jobs queued and/or running on IU's supercomputers. In the future, MyHPC will let you submit or cancel jobs.

Wait-time Visualizer

Wait-time Visualizer lets you visualize available resources for help minimizing wait times for IU research supercomputer jobs.

Script Generator

Use this form to generate a batch job script that will run on an IU research supercomputer. Select the system, indicate your job's resource requirements (for example, queue, walltime, nodes, cores per node, and virtual memory per node), search for and load required software modules, and enter additional details to automatically generate your custom job script in the "Preview" window.

External tools

HPC everywhere beta also links to the following external tools:

  • Access Management: Request an account on an IU supercomputer and manage your other IU computing accounts.
  • Globus Online: Set up access to your research data using Globus Online.
  • Status.IU: Access Status.IU to view the current status of UITS computing systems and services.

Planned updates and features

The following features will be added or updated:

  • Software Module Listing: A new tool that lets you browse the software modules available on each supercomputer and review potential conflicts between one or more modules.
  • An integrated module search tool, the wait time visualizer and the job script generator, and eventually enable submission of simple batch jobs.
