Jupyter Notebooks

These directions are taken from the Mox Hyak wiki found here.

Use Jupyter Notebook

  1. Login to Hyak (MOX).

  2. Start an interactive node session via srun -p srlab -A srlab --time=hh:mm:ss --pty /bin/bash

    • Replace the --time=hh:mm:ss with desired runtime. E.g. --time=02:00:00 will set a runtime of 2hrs, 0mins, and 0secs.
  3. Activate Anaconda 3: conda activate

  4. Navigate to your desired working directory (e.g. cd /gscratch/srlab/ or /gscratch/scrubbed/).

  5. Start Jupyter Lab jupyter-lab --no-browser --port 9000 --ip

    • Make note of the NODE_NUMBER assigned to you (it will frequently be different each time you run this process) - highlighted in the screencap below:

  6. In another terminal window on your local desktop, type ssh <UW_NetID> -L 9000:<NODE_NUMBER>.hyak.local:9000

    • Replace <UW_NetID> (including the <>) with your UW NetID.

    • Replace <NODE_NUMBER> (including the <>) with the node assigned to you in Step 3.

    • NOTE: If you receive the following error message (note the part highlighted in white), then close all of your terminals connected to Mox and start again; this time specifying a different port number in Step 5 (port number can be anything greater than 9000 and less than 65000):

  7. In your local web browser, paste the lengthy URL provided in Step 3.
