Tools Portfolio Tools Portfolio

In this page will be collected all infromation about the generic applications and all mandatory software provided by the EUMEDGRID-Support infrastructure. This page will be useful for both application developers who may find precious information about already available software and for EUMEDGRID-Support site administrators who may verify the availability of these software packages on their own Grid Sites.

These applications are then listed into two different categories:

  • Mandatory software - In this section are included all OS packages and development tools to be available on all eumedGrid support sites as expressed in the CIC portal.
  • Generic Tools - In this section are included: frameworks, compilers, data analysis tools, etc.

Mandatory Software

Name Description
Parallel Programming (MPI) Under this category of development tools the EUMEDGRID-Support infrastructure provides MPICH2 together with MPI_START helper scripts.
Blas BLAS Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms
GNU compilers

Under this category the following packages are included:
compat-gcc-34 compat-glibc compat-glibc-headers compat-libf2c-34 compat-libf2c-34.i386 compat-libgcc-296 compat-libgcc-296.i386 compat-libstdc++-296 compat-libstdc++-296.i386 compat-libstdc++-33 e2fsprogs gcc-gnat gcc-objc ghostscript glibc-devel.i386 glibc-devel.x86_64 libstdc++ libstdc++-devel
libgfortran libgfortran.i386
ElectricFence gcc-c++

Kernel development
Linux kernel development suite is also available; kernel version may change accordingly to different site policies
X Server
Almost the full Xorg packages have been included as well as development headers and library files as shown by to the list below:
libX11-devel libXft-devel libXext libXext-devel libXi libXi-devel libXmu libXmu-devel libXpm libXpm-devel libXt-devel libXScrnSaver.i386 libSM-devel xorg-x11-server-Xvfb.x86_64
The Xvfb is the most adopded solution to produce graphical output by Grid jobs.

OpenGL packages provide 2D/3D graphic rendering capabilities to Grid Jobs;
Included packages are: mesa-libGL mesa-libGL-devel mesa-libGLU mesa-libGLU-devel

The most important interpreters are included by gLite (bash/python) while due to its importance perl as been included as well 
Misc packages Other minor packages are reported here:

  memtest86+ ncurses ncurses-devel 
  net-snmp-devel net-snmp-libs net-snmp-utils 
  system-config-kickstart ttmkfdir librdmacm librdmacm-devel 
  postgresql-libs.i386 postgresql-libs.x86_64 

Generic Tools

Name Discipline Description
CLHEP Physics CLHEP - A Class Library for High Energy Physics. It is intended to be a set of HEP-specific foundation and utility classes such as random generators, physics vectors, geometry and linear algebra. CLHEP is structured in a set of packages independent of any external package
FFTW Math/Engineering FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of arbitrary input size, and of both real and complex data (as well as of even/odd data, i.e. the discrete cosine/sine transforms or DCT/DST).
Scilab Math Scilab is the free software for numerical computation providing a powerful computing environment for engineering and scientific applications
Matlab Math MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.
Intel Compilers All Intel® compilers offer a suite of compilers for C, C++, and Fortran code development providing binary code optimization for Intel® CPUs.
