How NCMIR users, groups and software is setup on Triton

Each of our NCMIR Triton users is in the crbs-group on Triton.

Jim Hayes is going to set up some "group space" for our crbs-group on Triton. This is where we should install any and all software we plan to use for processing NCMIR data.

Each user should login on Triton using their own individual username and use the software from the group software area to process their data.

To verify that you are in the crbs-group, run 'id'.

To verify that you have time allocated to you on Triton, run 'gbalance -u <username>'.

To {+}get a report on who has used how many SUs on Triton, run '*gstatement -u <username> -p <project>'.

An example of these commands follows:
