A large number of common Linux software tools are available on the cluster (compute nodes and development nodes) as part of the core setup. Below follows a small excerpt of what tools are available.
Note: These core tools will be updated without notice as the operating system is updated on a regular basis via the CentOS package mangager yum. Many of the tools originate from the (stable) CentOS 7 EPEL repositories. To see what software and system libraries that are installed, run
yum list installed. Please note that, compared to compute nodes, the development nodes have additional software installed (typically named
-devel) needed to build and compile from source.
