A Beginners Guide to OzSTAR

Many students have found it challenging to determine exactly what they need to do when they want to turn a program they have written into a job to OzSTAR. This tutorial aims to resolve this issue by giving detailed instructions so by the end, even complete OzSTAR beginners should understand how to write and submit their own jobs.

This tutorial for submitting jobs is primarily aimed at people who will be using the OzSTAR supercomputer located at Swinburne. So keep in mind that some of this tutorial may not be applicable to all systems that are using a Slurm based job scheduler. This tutorial is based on the OzSTAR/Slurm documentation found here.


PREREQUISITE: you need to have an OzSTAR account which you can request here.
