Using VCDAT on your machine or a local network
Follow the instructions on the Deploy page.
Using VCDAT at NERSC
Log onto Cori.
Create a file named
.override-jupyter in your HOME directory.
In this file simply add this:
exec shifter --volume=$(pwd):/run --volume=$(pwd):/home/jovyan --image=cdoutrix/vcdat:rgma -- jupyter-labhub "$@"
Make the file executable:
chmod +x .override-jupyter
Now go to:
Login, select Cori and you are all setup.
Using VCDAT on ACME1
Log into acme1 via:
ssh -L 8888:acme1.llnl.gov:8888 acme1.llnl.gov
Point your browser to: http://localhost:8888 The first time you go to the localhost:8888 address, you will need to sign in using the same username and password you used to log on to acme1.
If the browser seems to hang or nothing happens you can try one of the following:
- refresh the browser a few times until you see some activity (i.e. the Jupyter "loading" image displays) OR
- go to http://localhost:8888/hub/home and select "My Server"
NOTE: Google Chrome is the preferred browser.
Once you have connected and you see something when you go to http://localhost:8888 in your browser, JupyterLab has loaded and you are now ready to make use of VCDAT. Please see the User Interface and Access Data pages for next steps and more information.
