Quest Practice and Q&A

This 90-minute workshop builds on the introductory materials presented in our introduction to Quest video. During this workshop you’ll be guided through a hands-on experience on Quest, Northwestern’s High-Performance Computing cluster. You will use Quest to solve exercises, review how to submit jobs and troubleshoot them.

Prerequisites: Before attending this workshop, researchers new to Quest should take the following steps

1. Apply for a Quest allocation. We recommend “Research Allocation I” if you are new to Quest.

2. Watch the Introduction to Quest video to get an overview of the system, learn how to submit jobs, and become familiar with best practices. To learn more about Quest, see About Quest.

3. Become familiar with Unix command line: see our Intro Command Line and Bash Scripting workshops and check Online Resource Guide for learning basic command line skills.
