MATLAB, IDL, other applications ready for use on Geyser, Caldera

December 18, 2012

CISL provides more IDL and MATLAB licenses for the Yellowstone environment than were available previously, allowing more users to run either application at the same time. Both are installed and ready for use.

Geyser is the recommended system for running large-scale data analysis and post-processing tasks. Many other applications have been installed, or will be soon, for analysis and visualization on the Geyser and Caldera clusters.

Even with increased licenses, the Consulting Services Group (CSG) asks that individuals use no more than one MATLAB license and no more than one MATLAB Toolkit license of each variety at any one time. If CSG receives a complaint of license domination, the responsible user will be asked to kill some of the jobs. If CSG cannot reach the responsible user, system administrators will kill all but one of the related jobs.
