Welcome to the SNIC knowledge base and documentations site. SNIClogo half.png

NOTE: This site is under constant development and is still in the very early days of it's existence!

The aim of this site is that you should be able to get information, help, tips-and-tricks, etc. regarding the most widely used computational tools and scientific applications.

We also have an application-support e-mail address:
This mail address can be used if you have support questions that are not directly regarding how to run a given application on a specific SNIC HPC resource, but regarding how to use the application itself or how to solve an issue with the application that is not specific to running it on a certain resource.

The application-support queue is monitored by all the application experts, who are distributed over all the six SNIC HPC centers, so there is a good chance that someone who knows the given application will see the support request and help answer your questions or solve your issue.

If you don’t know whether or not to use the application-support address for your support request, then just send your request to the support address at the HPC center where you run your jobs. Then someone monitoring that support queue will in turn move your support request to the application-support queue if they find that your request is better handled there.

Discussion pages:
All pages in the knowledge base have parallel discussion pages (follow the link Discussion in the top of each page) where anyone interested can discuss the original page; add comments, suggestions, their own tips, new links etc. All you need to do to be able to edit a discussion page is to create an account for this wiki (Log in / create account). Creating an account only requires that you register a working e-mail address. Once you have an account, you can log in by following the link in the top right-hand corner of any page.

We strongly encourage all users to add comments etc. to the discussion pages, so we can improve the knowledge base and keep the provided information as fresh as possible.
