Help! How do I get started?

There are many different components to research computing. But, the basics for a typical use include:

  • Connecting to a remote system (usually from the command line)
  • Interacting with the remote system's operating system (usually Linux)
  • Submitting computational jobs to the resource manager on the remote system.

Information on these topics are covered in http://q-aps.princeton.edu/q-aps/book/intro-della-basic-hpc-princeton-un... .

The basic Linux introduction linked to from the previous materials is http://helpdesk.princeton.edu/kb/display.plx?ID=9660.

Setup of your Della or Tukey environment for R-based HPC and example jobs of mostly R-based HPC can be found at https://github.com/olmjo/tigress-scripts.
