Getting Started

Steps to getting started using the LQCD systems at Jefferson Lab:
  1. Get a user account
  2. Learn about file systems and data management
  3. Learn to create and submit batch scripts
  4. Learn about transferring files to/from JLab
The sub-sections below will walk you through an overview of these steps; additional, more detailed information can be found in the subsequent chapters.

Considerable information about the status of the computing resources is available at the LQCD / HPC Portal:, described in the last subsection.
