Welcome to I B E X

This quick tutorial is for new Ibex users.

Ibex clusters consist of 2 different login nodes:

1) ilogin(CPU) : ssh -X username@ilogin.ibex.kaust.edu.sa

2) glogin(GPU) : ssh -X username@glogin.ibex.kaust.edu.sa

 

Note: To access the Ibex Clusters ,You only need to have kaust credentials(username & password).If you do not have kaust credentials yet or an external collaborator please contact the IT Help Desk at ithelpdesk@kaust.edu.sa to request an account. In case of external collaborator please make sure to request VPN access with destination "ibex-login" enabled.

  • Explore the available applications on each cluster by writing in the terminal :" module avail " .This will give you the installed applications depending on the node you are logged on.
  • You can find the latest applications after "module avail " under :
     
    • /sw/csXX/modulefiles/applications
    • /sw/csXX/modulefiles/compilers
    • /sw/csXX/modulefiles/libs

      Where XX is  i, g depending on which node you are logged on.
