Guided Tours: SP2
In this section you will find information on how to start using the IBM SP2
How to logon to Strindberg.
Please review the sections about
first, where you will find the binaries and configuration files required
for a login session.
Using the telnet in the travel-kit to login in to
strindberg.pdc.kth.se, you get to one of the
interactive nodes. From here you should start your batch jobs,
allocate nodes for interactive jobs, do your editing, compiling
While logged in, get a proper environment by the command,
> module add sp2
Trough the EASY scheduler you can allocate one or several nodes
in Strindberg for a given amount of time. Basically you have to put a
request to the EASY scheduler with the number of nodes you want, for
how long time you want them and what you want to do with them. EASY will
then schedule your request and be able to give a estimate of
when your requested resource will be available.
Please read the
EASY section of the
guided tours before using EASY.
There are no
man pages for the EASY commands - instead on-line help is
available by the command
sphelp or by invoking EASY-commands with
