Summary: Orion Step-by-Step
This is a step-by-step how-to for using the UPF Orion cluster. It might look
complicated at first sight, but once you've gone through it, you'll see that it's
pretty straight forward. This guide is for people that are to lazy to read the
online help. Once you're in the Grid Engine (let me know if you see the same cat
twice. . . ), every step is documented in great detail under Help User Guide.
As an example, we're gonna take a spiking simulation. The program on the
command line looks as following:
spiking -b 20 -l 250
With the help of the cluster, we wanna check a range of -b and -l.
Copy your source files to orion.upf.edu.
scp -r ~/sources firstname.lastname@example.org:
Log in to orion.upf.edu. Compile. icc is faster than gcc. Use optimisation
flags like -ipo -O3 -xT -align -Zp16. (Drop me a line if you have better
ones.) Invoke the compiler with icpc. Link with the -static flag. Copy the
(static) executable back to your desktop machine.
