Cori KNL Training (Spring 2017)

June 9, 2017


NERSC will be hosting remote training (with limited in person capacity) for all users on Cori KNL nodes. Attendees will learn how to set up and run jobs on the KNL nodes in various configurations, how to evaluate their performance and an optimization strategy for improving code performance on the KNL nodes.

This is timed before charging begins on the Cori KNL nodes on July 1.

For both remote and in person (limited) attendance, please register here:
