Below you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions on the cluster.
You can get started using the cluster by following our Quick Start Guide.
So you try to run a program. Let's use Molpro for this example.
-bash: molpro: command not found
That's not the way it's supposed to work. Looks like the program is not in your path. Let's check.
$ which molpro
/usr/bin/which: no molpro in (/share/apps/tecplot360/bin:/share/apps/SPIN:/share/
Yep can't find it. See the path above. So the first thing to do is see if there is a module file needed for your application. Many applications have multiple versions installed and require a module to be loaded in order to fucntion correctly. To get a list of modules do the following:
$ module avail
------------------------ /usr/share/Modules/modulefiles ------------------------
dot module-info null use.own
module-cvs modules rocks-openmpi
----------------------- /share/apps/modules/modulefiles ------------------------
From the list above you can see that there are several versions of molpro installed so just pick one and give it a try.
$ module load molpro/2010
$ which molpro
Now it finds molpro.
If the above does not work you can use the locate command to find the program you are looking for and use the direct path for the program.
The only problem with the locate command is that it will return results of any file with the name matlab so you may get a lot of false listings for the program. You must decide whether or not the results look like what you want.
