CyEnce - Available Software

System Software
 CyEnce nodes run Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 and use TORQUE (PBS) for 
 resource and job management.

 The application of operating system patches occurs as security needs dictate.  
 All nodes allow for unlimited stack usage, as well as unlimited core dump size 
 (though disk space and server quotas may still be a limiting factor). 

 For information on job schedulers refer to the 
 Managing jobs using the PBS job scheduler Section.

Intel Compilers:
 Fortran compiler (ifort) 
 C and C++ Compilers (icc and icpc) 

 MPI (Using Infiniband):
  Intel MPI with Intel Fortran  ( mpiifort)
  Intel MPI with Intel C and C++ ( mpiicc , mpicpc)
  For information on Intel MPI Library Compiler Drivers refer to Section 2.1 of 
  the Intel MPI Library for Linux OS Reference Manual.

 GNU Debugger (/usr/bin/gdb)
 This debugger can be used to debug serial programs written in C and C++.

 Intel Debugger (idb, idbc, idbc_mic)
 Intel debugger can be used to debug jobs that run on regular Intel CPUs and/or 
 Intel Xeon Phi Accelerator cards.
 Issue 'man idb' on 'share' or 'stream' to find information on this debugger.

Scientific Libraries

 MKL Optimized Scientific Library that includes BLAS, LAPACK and FFTs. Refer to the
 Intel Math Kernel Library Link Line Advisor to choose the correct linking options.

Application Software
 Groups are responsible for installing their own group specific software, 
 since they usually are more expert at the software that is specific to their 
 discipline.  This also allows the groups to install whatever version they 
 want in their group's directories without affecting any other group on the 
 system, and to update on their own schedule without having to wait for a 
 system administrator to do it.

 If help is needed to install a specific software please contact 
 hpc-help@iastate.edu.
