How to use NICA cluster of LHEP.

NICA cluster (nc) machines are available for the users of the NICA
collaborations. To login, use your account for nc machines


ssh -X [username]@ncx[101]

To obtain account for the NICA cluster it is necessary to fill the registration form.

The FairSoft and FairRoot software are installed on each nc-machine.
Different versions of FairSoft are located at /opt/fair
soft directory, FairRoot – /opt/fairroot. Please, use these official
supported versions on the cluster.

OS, FairRoot and FairSoft are upgraded to CC7.6 on all hosts. Therefore
you should rebuild all your jobs!

The rules of the using the NICA cluster:

Now each user have new home-dir: /eos/lhep/username WITH QUOTA up to 25GB!
The old users can copy files from the old-home: /nica/user/*/username.
( Use command eoscp or xrdcp ).

For the data storage the disk space in directory /eos/nica is divided to
3th project:
BMN – /eos/nica/bmn,
MPD – /eos/nica/mpd,
SPD – /eos/nica/spd.
You should send a request to the project admin for receiving the place
into these directories of your project!
