Software Applications Installed on HPC/HTC Systems


By default all of the installed software is not directly available at the command prompt. There are a large number of software applications, libraries, tools, and compilers installed on the HPC/HTC systems.  Some of the installations require environment settings that are incompatible with other installations.  On the UA HPC/HTC 'Environment Modules' (simply modules - http://modules.sourceforge.net/ ) are used to activate (load) software required by the user.  The module commands allow the user to load/unload software, and the modules packages modify the user environment variables necessary to run the software.

The modules package is used to customize user environment settings. It allows the user to control what versions of a software package will be used when the user compiles or runs a program in their current login session or batch job.
