Abstract

We discuss training workshops run by the Linux Clusters Institute (LCI), which provides education and advanced technical training for IT professionals who deploy and support High Performance Computing (HPC) Linux clusters, which have become the most ubiquitous tools for HPC worldwide. The LCI offers workshops that cover the basics of Linux HPC cluster system administration, including hardware (computing, storage, and networking); system-level software (e.g., provisioning systems, resource ma nagers, and job schedulers); system security; and user support. These workshops also aim to seed an HPC systems professional community of practice, by bringing together groups of research computing professionals to obtain essential training in cluster administration, while interacting with the experienced HPC systems professionals who serve as instructors and mentors.
