Environment Modules

Environment modules are used on the LRZ HPC systems to manage the environment variables in shells and scripting languages. They also permit to provide multiple versions of packages. With the installation of SuperMUC-NG, LRZ gradually changes its software deployment process from manually built packages to automated builds with Spack.

Programming Environment on compute nodes

Because the operating system on the compute nodes is "diskless", the programming environment is not complete there. Typically you have to compile and link on the login nodes. Also you have to load the following module , if you want to use limited functions of the compilers on the compute nodes

module load slurm_setup


Intel, gnu and PGI compilers are available.
