HPC specific software documentation

  • Cuda
    The Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) toolkit provides a C/C++ interface for programming Nvidia's graphics processing units (GPUs). This document depicts how to use CUDA on the University's HPC systems equipped with NVidia graphics cards.
  • Matlab
    MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis, and numeric computation. This document depicts methods and strategies for using matlab efficiently on the HPC systems of the University of Innsbruck.
  • Setting up Your Windows PC With Putty and Xming
    This document describes how to set up the software on a Windows desktop or notebook necessary for an efficient user experience of central Linux servers. Covered items: Putty terminal emulator, Xming X11 server, settings for Putty and Xterm terminal emulators.
  • Singularity: User Defined Software Environments (Obsolete Version)
    OBSOLETE. Go to singularity24.html
  • Singularity: User Defined Software Environments (Version 2.4+)
    Singularity is an environment for executing user-defined software stacks such as Docker containers on HPC clusters.
  • Totalview Debugger
    The TotalView Debugger is a graphical tool for debugging sequential and parallel (MPI, OpenMP, POSIX threads etc.) programs.
  • Using Software Installed by the Spack Management System
