Jupyter on Cheaha
The cheaha cluster supports Jupyter notebooks for data analysis, but such jobs should be running using the SLURM job submission system to avoid overloading the head node. To run a Jupyter Notebook on cheaha, login to cheaha from your client machine and start an interactive job
srun --ntasks=1 --cpus-per-task=4 --mem-per-cpu=4096 --time=08:00:00 --partition=medium --job-name=JOB_NAME --pty /bin/bash module load Anaconda3/5.2.0 unset XDG_RUNTIME_DIR jupyter notebook --no-browser --ip=$host
The server should start running and provide you with a URL.
Now, start up a new tab/terminal/window on your client machine, and relogin to cheaha, using
ssh -L 8888:c00XX:8888 BLAZERID@cheaha.rc.uab.edu
where c00XX is the compute node where you started the jupiter notebook.
Now access the link generated by jupyter notebook (change c00XX to localhost) on your client machine by opening your browser. It should be running.
