LSF

This page lists available online tutorials related to parallel programming and using LC's HPC systems.

Both Slurm and IBM's CSM provide a way to launch tasks (aka, Linux processes) of a user's application in parallel across resources allocated to the job. For Slurm, the command is srun; for CSM, the command is jsrun. This page presents their similarities and their differences. It also details lrun, an LLNL developed wrapper script for jsrun.

Useful introductory information on LC's software environment is presented in the Software and Development Environment section of the Introduction to Livermore Computing Resources, or the Linux Clusters Overview for system-specific information.

IBM Spectrum LSF is a batch scheduler that allows users to run their jobs on Livermore Computing’s (LC) Sierra (link is external) (CORAL) high performance computing (HPC) clusters. IBM Cluster System Management (CSM) is the resource manager for the Sierra systems.

This is a quick start guide for LSF, a batch scheduler that allows users to run their jobs on Livermore Computing’s (LC) Sierra (link is external) (CORAL) high performance computing (HPC) clusters.

This is a list of commands to help you schedule jobs using LSF, a batch scheduler that allows users to run their jobs on Livermore Computing’s (LC) Sierra (link is external) (CORAL) high performance computing (HPC) clusters.
