This course is designed to extend the system administrator's and end user's knowledge of Grid Engine by covering the detailed aspects of its functionality and commands. The course empowers administrators to translate business goals into a Grid Engine configuration and enables advanced end users to create workflows to efficiently use the workload management system.
The class provides valuable experience with the gathering of site-defined shared resources, such as licenses, the configuration of job submission and execution environments for classic and containerized workloads (e.g. Docker), GPU management, dynamic cluster configurations, and more.
Hands-on exercises and practical troubleshooting tips are integrated into the course.
