There are a number of steps required to set up the correlator environment on Magnus. These instructions assume you want to use the installation set up by Cormac.
Note that correlation is done on Magnus, but pipelining is carried out on Zeus. The two machines share a home area and see the same disks.
Do not run the Pypeline on the Magnus head nodes.
Set up your environment on Magnus for correlating:
ssh <user>@magnus.pawsey.org.au . /home/cormac/.bash_aliases . /home/cormac/corr.setup
Set up your environment on Zeus for pipelining:
ssh <user>@zeus.pawsey.org.au . /home/cormac/bash_aliases . /home/cormac/pipe.setup
You will want to run everything under screen. For shared operations, please use Cormac's .screenrc:
cp /home/cormac/.screenrc ~/.screenrc
ATNF machines lie behind a firewall which prevents direct ssh. To have
archatoa behave as expected, add the following to your
~/.ssh/config, changing <your_username> appropriately:
Host *.atnf.csiro.au !venice.atnf.csiro.au ProxyCommand ssh <your_username>@venice.atnf.csiro.au -W %h:%p StrictHostKeyChecking no Ciphers=arcfour User <your_username>
