On first connecting to a cluster you should use the collection of Module commands command to determine what software is installed on the cluster and the different versions that are available. The best way of seeing what is installed is to simply type module avail.
If you require software installed on the cluster then the easiest way to do so is to click on the button on the right.
Otherwise you can simply email the IT Service Centre (ITServiceCentre@unsw.edu.au) detailing the software that you would like installed and the system that you would like it installed on.
You should also take the time to familiarise yourself with the special characteristics of the compilers and other software installed on the cluster including the compiler options available to you to make the most efficient use of resources.
- Compilers - Information on the different compilers on the clusters.
- Intel Compilers and Software Libraries - Information about the Intel compilers and libraries.
- Matlab - Mathematical package.
- Perl - Scripting language
- Python - Scripting language
