HPC Literature RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    I am working on a cluster project using Windows HPC at my university and also want to write my master thesis about that topic.
    Now I'm looking for literature and papers about Windows HPC. I've already read the whitepapers from http://www.microsoft.com/hpc/en/us/default.aspx but I'm looking for some really detailed stuff or maybe for some Microsoft courses.

    Is there any literature about Windows HPC that you can recommend?

  • I recommend you look at the technical documentation as well: http://www.microsoft.com/hpc/en/us/technical-resources.aspx 

    The White Papers are very much about point solutions. The product and developer documents are focused on what features are in the product and should be of interest to some one like you.

    Also, the long term direction for admins is to use Powershell as the replacement for VBScript. So see, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc947676(WS.10).aspx.

  • You should specifically go to the Developer Resources link in Frankie's post. Here you will find several tutorials and developer examples.

    Please also let us know if you have some other specific questions.

  • Thx for your responses!
    I am specially interested in the HPC Scheduling APIs and thought there might be some literature that deals with best practices.
    Just a short question: Just now, I found information about C# interfaces for the hpc job scheduler. are there also other interfaces for hpc and maybe also for C/C++??

  • Take a look at the API reference documents on MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb871033.aspx
