- Register your research group by filling out the form and sending it via mail - wait until you hear back from us (only once per group by head of group)
- Register at u0clstr in the IT Portal - WAIT 24H!
- Upload your SSH key in the IT Portal (HPC-Systems is only visible if you finished step 2.)
- Register at mailing list, join Mattermost HPC-Users channel
- Login via SSH
- Register your research group for the usage of the HPC resources.
This has to be done only once per research group. The application can be found on the right. A quick reference card guiding you through the steps of your application can also be found on the right.
- Register at our HPC mailing list
- Read the how-to guides provided on this website
1. After registering it can take up to 24h until you can login at PALMA-II!
2. It is not sufficient to just be a member of u0clstr. You also have to be a member of a registered research group!
3."Registered research group" means one of the groups that either already preexist in the IT portal, or which can be created following the rules outlined here. Group names consist of up to eight characters, always start with a letter, followed by a digit, followed by a character string, like in "u0clstr". Do not just invent arbitrary names on your application form. Projects can only be created by project leaders, i.e. regular staff members. Join the group of your professor if you are a student. You cannot register groups with a broad scope like "u0dawin", "p0stud", "u0mitarb" and the like. Groups on institute level are ok only if the institute is small, otherwise a group on chair level is preferrable. If you still do not know what a research group is, please ask before sending in an application.
Once a semester there is a lecture about parallel programming and the usage of our HPC system. This lecture is intended for people with prior knowledge in Linux and C/C++ or Fortran programming. It is not an introductory course, however, if you just want to inform yourself on the basic usage of PALMA-II, you are welcome to join the first day of this lecture.
