16sep1:00 pm3:00 pmZoom-in Consult for Biowulf Users


Event Details

Back by popular demand! The HPC staff is restarting the monthly Walk-In Consults, virtually, of course.

All Biowulf users, and all those interested in using the systems, are invited to stop by our Zoom session to discuss problems and concerns, from scripting problems to node allocation, to strategies for a particular project, to anything that is affecting your use of the HPC systems. Users will be assigned to a breakout-session with a member of the HPC staff to discuss the problem 1-on-1. We’ll try to address simpler issues on the spot and follow up on more complex questions after the Zoom-In.

No appointments are necessary, and all problems are welcome.

Please observe the following etiquette/protocol when joining:
There will be a main room treated as a lobby and triage area. There, you can talk to one or a few staff members who will try to understand basic information about your issue. Then you may be invited to join to a staff member’s personal breakout room for more detailed 1:1 consultation. Once you are finished with your focused consultation you can return to the main meeting room if you have additional questions or topics to discuss. Attendees are highly encouraged to
– mute when not speaking
– refrain from screen sharing unless asked to do so
– screen share as you would in a public space with the understanding that other NIH HPC users and staff may join and view what you are sharing (i.e. look over your shoulder)
– be prepared to wait your turn if staff are already helping other users


(Wednesday) 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
