A Little More Advanced Linux

This two-afternoon short-course extends the topics covered in The “Introduction to Linux” course. Familiarity with concepts covered in that introductory course is a pre-requisite for this course. Those not taking the Introduction to Linux course in the week before this advance course need to do a careful assessment of their knowledge of Linux. A review is a good idea.

The course very briefly reviews core concepts, and quickly moves to topics relating to automating more complex series of tasks, principles and points of configuration, troubleshooting, and system security. Submission scripts for high-throughput/high-performance computing schedulers such as SLURM and Condor (both used at Duke) are also introduced.

Course participants are required to bring their own laptop computer (you must have administrator access to this machine). Linux systems will be provided to participants, and they can use their laptops to access them. For people using a Windows laptops, please make sure that you have an SSH client installed (A free client can be downloaded and installed from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html)

Session #3: ELB (Elastic Load Balancer)

Each session runs approximately 1.5 hours.

Participants must have their own laptops/workstations and must have administrative access to load programs onto their systems. Chromebooks are not recommended. (Programs to be used include PUTTY as an SSH client http://www.putty.org as well as the AWS CLI (Command Line Interface) https://aws.amazon.com/cli/. You are encouraged to install both of these programs prior to the session.

Each participant must create and activate a new AWS account at least 2 days prior to attending this hands on lab. Send confirmation of your account set up completion to Tracy Crews at tlcrews@amazon.com. Tracy will then respond back with a code. This code is to cover your AWS Services consumed during the HOLs.

IMPORTANT:
* Do not use an existing account; create a new one for the hands on labs. You will be asked for a credit card but it will not be charged for any services used during the hands on labs.
* You will need to terminate all AWS Services used for the hands on labs. If you do not, charges may accrue that you are responsible for as the account owner.
