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. Users may request space for custom software for their project group as described here:

Space for user maintained executables

Acceptable use
    The directory /usr/local/usrapps provides space for user installed and maintained applications.
    A project may request a directory in which all group members may install software.
    All new /usrapps directories will be named for the project group unless otherwise requested.
    Directories in /usr/local/usrapps may not be used for data or as a working space from which to execute jobs. A compute node cannot write to /usr/local/usrapps.
    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 HPC Support including the following information:
    • Name of HPC project that will be responsible for the application
    • The following statement: "The HPC group [mygroup] certifies that we will only install appropriately licensed applications on the HPC Linux cluster - e.g., applications where the license is fully open source with no applicable restrictions, applications for which NCSU has approved a clickwrap, or applications with licences purchased by our group. For licenses purchased by our group, we will maintain proper file and directory permissions to comply with the licence. The group will maintain software by installing security patches or upgrades when necessary."
    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.
    Please contact HPC staff with any questions about licensing when installing software.
Here is some general guidance for installing software.

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 HPC Support 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.
