The ShARC HPC cluster was decommissioned on the 30th of November 2023 at 17:00. It is no longer possible for users to access that cluster.

JupyterHub on ShARC: Quickstart

A brief walk-through for the eager.

  1. Open a web browser and browse to:
  2. Log in when prompted using your University username and password.

  3. Click Start My Server.

  4. Under Spawner options you specify the resources you require for your Jupyter session on ShARC. Here, try:

    • Project: default

    • Job queue: any

    • Email address: your email address

    • CPU cores: 1

    • Parallel Environment: None

    • RAM per CPU core (in GB): 4

    • GPUs per CPU core: 0

    • Notebook session runtime: can’t be changed

  5. Click Spawn and wait for your session to start. If the cluster is very busy then there may not be sufficient resources for this, so the session spawning may time-out.

  6. Once your Jupyter session has spawned you should see a list of the files in your home directory on ShARC. Click New then Python [conda env:anaconda3-4.2.0].

  7. You should now see an empty Notebook.
