Help & Documentation


Software Available at MSI

Browse our list of software offerings and learn how to access specific software. If the software you need isn't on our list, you can install it on your home directory, with our help. If there is software that you think would have wide use, fill out an application to have it installed system wide. 



Understanding how to submit computational jobs to queues is the first step towards using MSI systems. Mesabi, Itasca, and Lab each have a unique set of queues. Knowing the limits of each queue will help you select the correct system for your computational needs.
