Getting started on the cluster

This article describes how to log into the KISSKI cluster.

The README contains 💎 sections, which are optional and to help you if you are stuck at a particular step.

Getting started

If you would like to run this code on the KISSKI-Cluster, you need an account for the cluster.

1. Logging in

To log into the cluster, complete the following steps.

  1. Upload an ssh key
  1. Test access Now you can test whether you have access to the system. GWDG need to add you to the system, so this step only works when they have already done so. You will receive an e-mail with your user name once you have been added to the project.

Open a shell and adapt the following command:

ssh -i .ssh/your-key

You are now on the frontend.

💎 If your key “Identity file” is not found, double-check that the path you have provided exists and contains your generated key

2. Running Code

Next steps would be to run code with Slurm. For an introduction to this, please have a look at this course. To find out more about GPU usage, please have a look here.

🚀 Practical sessions to follow along are our recorded videos.
