Al-Salam is a 12-node cluster at Earlham College. It runs Linux (CentOS) and there are a few points about running jobs on it.

Modules

In order to manage and use different kinds of software, we use an environment management utility called Modules. This lets you run a simple command (e.g., module load openmpi) to have everything set up and managed easily.

module avail

This includes MPI implementations, different versions of Python, scientific codes, and more.

You can see which modules are currently loaded by running
