!!! hint "Hint on Python packages"
The usage of virtual environments and, therefore, the usage of workspaces is recommended,
especially for Python. Please check out the module system, even for specific Python packages,
e.g. `tqdm`, `torchvision`, `tensorboard`, etc. to get a better idea of what is available
to you. The Python (and other) package ecosystem is very heterogeneous and dynamic, with,
often, daily updates. The central update cycle for software on the ZIH HPC system occurs
approximately every six months.

## Running a Job
## Running a Program/Job
Since all computational resources are shared with other users, in order to allocate them you need
to interact with the so-called scheduler or a batch system. On the ZIH system it is
[Slurm](https://slurm.schedmd.com/quickstart.html).
Running programs on an HPC machine is called **running jobs**.
Since all computational resources are shared with other users, these resources need to be allocated.
For managing these allocations a so-called job scheduler or a batch system is used.
On the ZIH system the used job scheduler is [Slurm](https://slurm.schedmd.com/quickstart.html).
It is possible to run a job [interactively](../jobs_and_resources/slurm.md#interactive-jobs)
(real time execution) or to submit a [batch job](../jobs_and_resources/slurm.md#batch-jobs)
(scheduled execution). For beginners, we highly advise to run the job interactively.

To do so, use the `srun` command:
