HOWTO: Add python packages using the conda package manager

While our Python installations come with many popular packages installed, you may come upon a case where you need an addiditonal package that is not installed.  If the specific package you are looking for is available from anaconda.org (formerlly binstar.org) you can easily install it and required dependencies by using the Conda package manager.

To be able to install a package using the Conda package manager:

HOWTO: Install your own python modules

While we provide a number of Python modules, you may need a module we do not provide. If it is a commonly used module, or one that is particularly difficult to compile, you can contact OSC Help for assistance, but we have provided an example below showing how to build and install your own Python modules, and make them available inside of Python. Note, these instructions use "bash" shell syntax; this is our default shell, but if you are using something else (csh, tcsh, etc), some of the syntax may be different.

ARM HPC tools

ARM HPC tools analyze how HPC software runs. It consists of three applications, ARM DDT, ARM Performance Reports and ARM MAP: 

  • ARM DDT: graphical debugger for HPC applications.
  • ARM MAP: HPC application profiler with easy-to-use GUI environment.
  • ARM Performance Reports: simple tool to generate a single-page HTML or plain text report that presents overall performance characteristics of HPC applications.

 

All ACLs lost in Home Directories after 6/7 downtime

Date: 
Tuesday, June 7, 2016 - 6:00pm

All ACLs set within the Home Directory filesystem (/nfs/##) were lost during the 6/7 downtime.  This was caused by the migration to a new server that does not support the old POSIX ACLs.

Migrating the ACLs was not possible due to both the fact POSIX ACLs are not easily translatable to NFSv4 ACLs, and none of our tools supported such a migration.
