Sirius User Guide

* Still under construction, but here’s a little info about Sirius:

Sirius is a single CentOS 6.5 Linux large memory server shared among bioinformatics researchers. This system is currently configured with
64 Intel Xeon E5-4640 cores + 757 GB RAM

A somewhat outdated wiki page for Sirius is available here: http://sirius.hpc.rutgers.edu

Connecting to Sirius

If you are on any of the legacy Rutgers campuses, then:

ssh [your NetID]@sirius.hpc.rutgers.edu

If you are off-campus or on the UMDNJ campus, you will have to use the vpn to reach Sirius:

Details about Rutgers vpn can be found: https://oit.rutgers.edu/vpn

VPN software to download can be found here: https://software.rutgers.edu/product/3085

and instructions can be found here: https://wiki.td.rutgers.edu/wiki/Category:VPN

Once the VPN is installed and turned on, ssh as above:

ssh [your NetID]@sirius.hpc.rutgers.edu

To load a software module (to setup your command shell environment for using that software) you can use the module load command:

$ module load trinityrnaseq/2.0.6

Now, I can see that the Trinity Perl script is included in my $PATH, so I can run it by simply using the Trinity command:

$ which Trinity
/opt/sw/packages/trinityrnaseq/trinityrnaseq-2.0.6/Trinity
