NEEShub Simulation Capabilities
Simulation tool developers, NEES power users who:
* have a very large simulations or many simulations in excess of 30 minutes run time.
* need to script parameter sweeps
* run a structure analysis with a large suite of ground motions.
* Introduction to the linux workspace tool on NEEShub.
* Manual execution (command line) of the opensees simulator
* Manual execution (command line) of other applications.
* Use of the new batchsubmit command to run opensees
* Use of batchsubmit to run other applications
* The batchstatus command
* Demonstration of how HOME directory space is linked to scratch space.
* Simple parallel execution (the --ncpus argument to batchsubmit)
* Parallel opensees (how to modify sequential input to be parallel input)
* How to use batchsubmit for other venues.
* Overview of various NEES execution High Performance Computing (HPC) venues: They are local hub execution, osg, hansen, steele, kraken, and ranger.
* Advanced batchsubmit options and scripting the execution of batchsubmit. How does the openseeslab user interface use batchsubmit.
