Using OSCER Systems
Speaking the (Linux) language
The OSCER supercomputer runs on CentOS, and requires Linux commands to interact with the system (example: listing files and folders, editing files, submitting jobs, monitoring pending & running jobs, etc.). We strongly recommend users become familiar with Linux commands in order to effectively work with the supercomputer.
Logging into the supercomputer
SSH is the preferred (and only) method of logging into OSCER computers. Click here for detailed instructions on how to log into OSCER systems.
Transferring files to the supercomputer
SCP and SFTP are the two methods by which you can transfer files between your computer and the supercomputer. Click here for detailed instructions.
