User Training on Checkpointing and Restarting VASP Jobs Using MANA on May 25, 2021

May 25, 2021

NERSC will host an online hands-on user training for VASP users on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 from 10:00am-12:00am PDT. The training is to help VASP users to checkpoint/restart VASP jobs using MANA, a transparent checkpointing tool. Benefits of using MANA include the capability of running a job of any length on Cori with checkpoint/restart, the potential for improved job throughput, and the ability to realize a 75% charging discount by running in the Flex queue.

The training will start with a 30-minute presentation, followed by a one hour and a half hands-on session.
