UMBC High Performance Computing Facility
Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the
240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014.
Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently,
until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014.
Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Resources for HPCF Users
See the 2013 Resources Page
documentation from before the Dec 14, 2013 changes for the maya cluster
See the 2010 Resources Page
documentation from before the June 7, 2011 change in scheduling policies.
The contents in this section will help you get up and running on our maya
Below is a list of software packages which have been installed by
HPCF at some time, but may not be ready to use on the latest cluster maya.
Packages marked with (∗) are available on maya, but have not been
tested by user support, and the instructions may be out of date.
Packages marked with (†) are not yet available on maya. We ask that
users get in touch with user support
to have these installed and documented on maya. This will help us to
prioritize setup of the new cluster and to avoid too much unused software.
Tutorial: Compiling and running C programs
Read through this tutorial to get started writing programs (both serial and
parallel) on the cluster. Even though these focus specifically on the C
programming language, they discuss some fundamential issues such as how to
interact with the scheduler, so all users should read them first.
Other Languages and Harwares
Other programming languages available on the cluster.
Other packages available on the cluster.
Domain specific (e.g. computational chemisty and biology)
Libraries available on the cluster, which can be used in your code.
Parallel programming (besides MPI)
