To be able to do the hands-on exercises of this course, you need a computer with an OpenMP capable C/C++ or Fortran compiler and a corresponding, up-to-date MPI library (in case of Fortran, the mpi_f08 module is required). Please note that the course organizers will not grant you access to an HPC system nor any other compute environment. Therefore, please make sure to have a functioning working environment / access to an HPC cluster prior to the course.

In addition, you can perform most MPI exercises in Python with mpi4py + numpy. In this case, an appropriate installation on your system is required (together with a C/C++ or Fortran installation for the other exercises).


tar -xvzf TEST.tar.gz

using https://fs.hlrs.de/projects/par/events/TEST.tar.gz or

unzip TEST.zip

using https://fs.hlrs.de/projects/par/events/TEST.zip and verify your MPI and OpenMP installation with the tests described in TEST/README.txt within the archive.

The exercise about race-condition detection (at the end of the course) is optional. It would require an installation of a race-condition detection tool, e.g., the Intel Inspector together with the Intel compiler.

A few days before the course starts, you will receive pdf files from the slides and tar/zip files for installing the exercises on your system.
