Henry2 has a mixture of staff maintained software and user maintained software.

The list of supported software below is currently under construction.

User maintained software

Staff cannot install and maintain custom software for each of Henry2's many users, so users must install their own packages. For executables that are too large for a home directory, users may request space for custom software:

Space for user maintained executables

Acceptable use
    The directory /usr/local/usrapps provides space for user installed and maintained applications.
    Directories in /usr/local/usrapps may not to be used for data or as a working space from which to execute jobs.
    Applications must be maintained/patched to minimize potential security vulnerabilities.
    Access should be managed via Linux group permissions to comply with license restrictions.
    Applications that require root access to install are not permitted.
Procedure to request space under /usr/local/usrapps
    Submit a request via email to oit_hpc@help.ncsu.edu including the following information:
    • Name of HPC Project that will be responsible for the application
    • Name of the application to be installed
    • Statement that the group is authorized to install the application on the HPC Linux cluster - (e.g. what type of license does the application have and does your group qualify under this license to install and use the application on a shared Linux cluster)
    A directory will be created with group read/write access for the requesting project.
    The project group will be responsible for installing and maintaining the application.

HPC maintained software

The following tables show the status of software that has been requested and/or installed on HPC systems for general use. Many of the applications require group membership for access. If a permission denied error is encountered for one of the packages, please contact oit_hpc@help.ncsu.edu to be added, license permitting, to the list of users. For ANSYS and ANSYS CFD (previously CFX), please request access and agree to the licensing terms using the Reqest Access links provided below. For Gaussian, a license acknowledgement needs to be signed and returned to obtain access.
