User Guide

Overview and Status

The User Guide menu to the left gives instructions on using the MASSIVE cluster.

The User Guide is structured in steps of complexity. The Getting Started section covers the basics of getting an account and the software required to access the account. The next sections detail basic usage of the cluster (Cluster Instructions), usage of individual software packages installed on the cluster (Software Instructions) and common workflows requiring multiple steps and software packages to achieve a specific goal (Workflow Instructions).
