 ====== Software ====== ====== Software ======
  
-===== Installed Software =====+On the mogon clusters we install a broad variety of software (libraries and applications) for our users. We seek to install all software in optimized form - as far as possible. 
 + 
 +===== Non-Canonical Installation Helpers ===== 
 + 
 +<WRAP center round important 60%> 
 +Many users feel tempted to install software themselves. This is perfectly fine, yet support for self-installed software cannot be granted. 
 + 
 +Particularly, we strongly discourage using any ''*conda'' or ''brew'' setup on one of our clusters: It has often been a source of messing up an existing environment only to be discovered at a source of interference when switching back our modules. 
 +</WRAP> 
 + 
 +===== EasyBuild and Software Installation on Mogon Clusters ===== 
 + 
 +If some application or library or a flavor of it is missing you can [[https://hpc.uni-mainz.de/high-performance-computing/service-angebot/softwareinstallation/|ask us with this little form]] to install it. We apologize, but at some point the need arose to be a somewhat formal. We use [[https://easybuilders.github.io/easybuild/|EasyBuild]] as a framework to install software and control the module building process. In our form we ask to indicate an [[http://easybuild.readthedocs.io/en/latest/version-specific/Supported_software.html|EasyBuild configuration file]], if applicable. 
 + 
 +You may install software independently, yet in this case our support has to be limited. 
 + 
 +If an EasyBuild configuration is missing, but the desired software is of interest to a handful of people, we might write the missing EasyBuild together. Please approach us in this case. 
 + 
 +===== Easybuild Toolchains ===== 
 + 
 +When looking in the list of installed modules you see abbreviations as ''foss'', ''gompi'' or similar. These are the [[http://easybuild.readthedocs.io/en/latest/eb_list_toolchains.html|EasyBuid Toolchains]], matches of specific compilers and basic library versions bundled together. 
 + 
 +When compiling or using software, please ensure that matching compilers and libraries have been used or loaded. Otherwise software might just crash for a variety of reasons. Please report, if a desired library is missing for a given toolchain. 
 + 
 +===== Installed Software and Modulefiles ===== 
 + 
 +All software installed by the HPC team for users is available within so-called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environment_Modules_%28software%29|Environment Modules]]: Little scripts, which set the matching environment variables for the desired application or library. More on Modulefiles can be found [[setting_up_environment_modules|on our wiki page covering Modules]]. This page covers looking for area specific tools, too.

 ==== Compilers ==== ==== Compilers ====
  
-  * GCC 4.4.6 ((From the SL base system, no modulefile needed)) / 4.6.2 / 4.7.0 ((Modulefiles ''gcc/*'')) +Compilers are available when loading a module file associated with a toolchainTo obtain only a compiler, you can load any module in the ''compiler'' trunk of our modulefiles: 
-  * Intel Composer 2011 SP1 ((Modulefile ''intel/composer/2011_sp1.10.319'' or ''intel-studio-2011-sp1-10'')) + 
-  * Open64 4.5.1 4.5.2 ((Modulefiles ''open64/*'')) +<code bash> 
-  * PGI 12.4 ((Modulefiles ''pgi/*''))+$ module load compiler/[TAB] 
 +</code> 
  
 ==== MPIs ==== ==== MPIs ====
  
-See [[mpi|MPI]].+Using MPI-Modules can be special. Please refer to our [[mpi|MPI wiki page]]. 
 + 
 +==== Licensed Software / Proprietary Software ==== 
 + 
 +For software which is associated with a restricted software, we have a number of options: 
 + 
 +  - if the software anticipates a license server, we can setup the software (install + connect to the license server) for or with you. 
 +  - if the software may be run by anyone who has signed a license, we can install the software (an [[software:topical:physics:vmd_namd|example would be VMD + NAMD]]) and make it accessible to a particular user or group. 
 +  - If your case is special and not yet listed, get in touch with us. 
 + 
 +<WRAP center round info 90%> 
 +In the 2nd case (a software which comes with a license, which prohibits us to "//just install and everyone can use it//") we require you (individual users of a group, possible several signs on one form) to print and sign printed licenses. Subsequently, send it via internal mail ("Hauspost") to "ZDV HPC group". We will then set the permissions accordingly. 
 + 
 +When doing so, please include: 
 +  * your name 
 +  * your username 
 +  * your email address (in case we need to approach you) 
 +  * Software (if not already stated on the license agreement) 
 +  * Software Version (if not already stated on the license agreement) 
 + 
 +Multiple users may sign a single license agreement if the agreement in question permits this. 
 +</WRAP>

 +===== Topical Software =====
  
-==== Libraries ====+We have [[software:topical:|gathered]] a few additional descriptions on area specific software (packages). You will find more information at the specific pages.
