High Performance Computing Center North
ThinLinc is a cross-platform remote desktop server developed by Cendio AB. At HPC2N, ThinLinc is installed only on Kebnekaise.
ThinLinc is especially useful when you need to use software with a graphical interface, like INTEL VTune or MATLAB. Look at our MATLAB page for information about running MATLAB.
This page is about software libraries. The libraries on HPC2N systems includes parallel communications libraries (MPI) as well as various mathematical libraries, including MKL. More detailed documentation on the libraries available follows below.
There are compilers available for Fortran 77, Fortran 90, Fortran 95, C, and C++. The compilers can produce both general-purpose code and architecture-specific optimized code to improve performance (loop-level optimizations, inter-procedural analysis and cache optimizations).
This results in a different naming of the modules themselves and also a completely different module layout, compared to how it was done with Tcl modules.
The modules are installed hierarchically in such a way that not all modules are visible initially.
To set up your environment for using a particular (set of) software package(s), you can use the modules that are provided centrally.
On both Abisko and Kebnekaise, interacting with the modules is done via Lmod, using the module command or the handy shortcut command ml.
