There is a lot of software available on the FarmShare systems. The systems run Ubuntu, so a lot of Ubuntu packages are installed.

There is also some licensed software installed.

Don't use /usr/pubsw, we're trying to retire all of that tree.

Maybe use /usr/sweet/bin, though we're trying to move those.

modules

We use 'modules', a commonly used software package in HPC environments: http://modules.sourceforge.net/

Try something like this at the end of your .bashrc:

HOSTNAME=$(hostname)
if [ "${HOSTNAME:0:4}" = "corn" ]; then
  #source farmshare modules
  echo "on a corn! try module avail"
  source /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/init/bash
fi

Then you can do something like:

module avail
module load stata
stata

tracker

We use 'tracker', a Stanford-specific software, to track how many users use which software: http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/tracker/
