The University at Buffalo Center for Computational Research (UB CCR) and Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) team up to offer HPC systems personnel a step-by-step tutorial for installing, configuring and using what many centers now consider vital software products for managing and enabling access to their resources. UB CCR offers two open source products - an allocations management system, ColdFront, and an HPC metrics & data analytics tool, Open XDMoD. OSC provides the open source OnDemand portal for easy, seamless web-based access for users to HPC resources. These three products have been designed to work together to provide a full package of HPC center management and access tools. In this tutorial the system administrators and software developers from OSC and UB CCR will walk attendees through the installation and configuration of each of these software packages. We’ll show how to use these three products in conjunction with each other and the Slurm job scheduler.

We will begin the tutorial with a short overview of each software product and how they tie together to provide seamless management of an HPC center. We’ll spend the first part of the tutorial demoing the installation and configuration of ColdFront and Open XDMoD. The second half will be spent on the installation of Open OnDemand and examples of configuring interactive apps. We’ll end with instructions on how to tie together Open XDMoD with Open OnDemand for access to job metrics within OnDemand.
