Software at UPPMAX

This page describes the software environment at UPPMAX. In general, the software is available across the different clusters, but exceptions do occur. For details, please see the list of Installed Software.

Operating system

The clusters at UPPMAX is running CentOS or Scientific Linux (with a few exceptions). Both CentOS and Scientific Linux are Red Hat Enterprise Linux clones commonly used in HPC and may be found at places such as CERN and Fermilab. 

The module system

The various software packages installed at UPPMAX are made available to the clusters through a system of modules. The current module system is called lmod, and is accessed via the module command. See the Module System page for a short guide on how to use modules.
