The FAIRSOFT software is installed on each machine. FairSoft with ROOT 5 is located at /opt/fairsoft_root5/install directory, FairSoft with ROOT 6 – /opt/fairsoft_root6/install. By default, the directory /opt/fairsoft/install points to FairSoft with ROOT 5. Please, use these last supported versions on the cluster.

The rules of using the NICA cluster:
▸ Home directory space (/nica/user/*/*) should not exceed 10 GB.
▸ User working directories should be created on shared cluster disks mounted as /nica/mpd* and named by login of the user. The working directory should not exceed 100 GB on each disk.

e.g. mkdir /nia/mpd16/$USER 

▸ If you need more disk space, then you need to inform the administrator of the cluster about the necessary additional volume and ime of data storing.
▸ Working directories (/nica/mpd*/*), which have not been accessed for more than 3 years, are removed.
▸ Accounts, whose users have not worked on the cluster for more than 3 years, are deleted.
