Intro to Kamiak Training

Post Workshop Survey: 


Presentation Slides:


This workshop provides an introduction for new users to Kamiak and HPC Environments.

It also involves interactive hands-on exercises.  A summary of commands for the exercises can be found here: https://s3.wp.wsu.edu/uploads/sites/1122/2018/02/kamiak_follow_along.pdf 

The session will also be recorded and archived for future viewing.


As part of the training, you will be asked to run some exercises on Kamiak. Before you attend, please make sure that you:

  • Have an account on Kamiak.
  • Bring a laptop or device that you can use to access Kamiak.
  • Make sure your device has the capability to transfer files.
    • We will be teaching you how to perform file transfers in this workshop, but please make sure that you have everything installed to do so in advance.
      • On a Mac: You should already be set to use SCP (Secure Copy Protocol) from the command line.  See more at https://hpc.wsu.edu/users-guide/file-transfers/. If you would like to use a graphical file transfer software on a Mac, there are options at the bottom of that page.
      • On a PC: Please download WinSCP (a link is available @ https://hpc.wsu.edu/users-guide/file-transfers/) to upload files using a graphical user interface.  You can also use an SCP client such as PuTTY’s pscp.exe for SCP transfers from the Windows command line, but we recommend using something with a GUI and the ability to use SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol).
  • Familiarize yourself with basic Linux commands.
  • Choose and download a text editor GUI.
