One of the most requested improvements around Sherlock services, that came out of our recent user survey, was for more documentation and more training.

This is why, to help new users get familiar with Sherlock’s computing environment, we’ll now be offering regular Sherlock on-boarding sessions, starting this Thursday, via Zoom:

Sherlock on-boarding session
Thursday, May 21st, 11am
SUNetID required

This one-hour introduction to Sherlock will present the cluster’s layout, the job scheduler and its limits, the different data storage possibilities, as well as some job submission and software installation best practices. So if you’re new to Sherlock or HPC in general, you’re welcome to join us to learn more!

We will be offering these sessions on a regular basis, so look out for more announcements soon.

On-boarding sessions will be focusing on new Sherlock users, but if you’re already a Sherlock user and have specific questions, always feel free to reach out to us at [email protected], or to stop by during virtual office hours:
