HPC Mini Tutorials

unstable internet? use tmux to protect your SSH connection


How to protect your SSH connection to the HPC clusters at Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²), if the internet is not stable? How to maintain your workflow with minimal loss of work due to unstable internet connections?

Tmux can help you out by easily detaching and attaching to the running sessions on the frontends of our HPC clusters. Your workflow will no longer be interrupted by unstable internet connections.

In this interactive tutorial, we will show you a few simple ways to use tmux to prevent from being interrupted by disconnection. We will also show you how to create multiple windows and panes in your SSH connections to the HPC cluster systems at PC² to maximize your productivity using terminal.
