Cluster Modules

How to use Modules (centrally installed software and packages) on the cluster

The HPC provides some generally useful system-wide programs and functionality – in particular for Python – through Linux environment modules.
For more information see here, here, or here.

How it works:

  • Launch a terminal on the desired node type
  • To see available modules call:
  • e.g. module avail pyt*
  • Activate desired module <MODULE_NAME> by calling:
  • e.g. module load <MODULE_NAME>

Modules are loaded only for the current terminal session!

Python: Many (all?) of the python modules comes with the Spyder IDE and jupyter notebooks(?).
Matlab: Older versions of installations of Matlab are available if those are desired.
