This section provides information on how to get an account at HPC2N, how to apply for a project, how to login/access the HPC2N systems, and how to change a password after logging in the first time.
This table lists the currently available HPC2N clusters and the domain name of their respective login nodes:
Sometimes you need to obtain information about current (or past) projects running at HPC2N and their recent CPUhours usage. We recommend you to use SUPR for looking up allocation and resource usage. However we also provide a command line program you can use called:
which allows users to list:
This is a quickstart guide to using the compute clusters on HPC2N.
Follow the instructions below to log on to 'Abisko' or 'Kebnekaise'.
If this is the first time you are using any of the HPC2N facilities, please change your password after you have logged in. See Login and password at HPC2N for more information.
A computer cluster consists of a number of computers (few or many), linked together and working closely together. In many ways, the computer cluster works as a single computer. Generally, the component-computers are connected to each other through fast local area networks (LANs).
Some of the libraries are already in the path. For the rest, you need to load the specific module first. The libraries on HPC2N systems includes parallel communications libraries as well as mathematical libraries. More detailed documentation on the libraries available follows below.
