NOTE: Each Amber directory contains scripts that you can source for setting up your environment:

  • (bash)
  • amber.csh (csh)

Any additional requirements (such as scripts to source for MPI libraries or modules to load) will be listed in specific entries.



Ember (CPU), Kingspeak


Intel compilers

MPI: /uufs/ember.arches/sys/pkg/mvapich2/std_intel/etc/

Ember (GPU)

NOTE: MPI version has changed as of 3-13-2015 due to problems with GNU mvapich2 1.9


GNU compilers

MPI: /uufs/ember.arches/sys/pkg/mvapich2/2.0/etc/

CUDA 5.5 (system default)



Intel compilers

MPI: /uufs/

Kepler (GPU)

NOTE: Kepler does NOT use a queuing system. Before running on Kepler ensure no one else is running using the 'top' command.


GNU compilers

CUDA 5.0: /usr/local/cuda-5.0


Lonepeak (under construction)


Intel compilers

MPI: /uufs/




Intel compilers

CUDA 5.0: Use "module load cuda/5.0"

Default MPI

Blue Waters


All compiles on BW use modules other than the default ones. Only the CUDA compiles should require module loading, but the safest thing to do is add the appropriate module commands to all run scripts. The CUDA 5.0 compile should be faster than the default CUDA, let me know if not.

amber-cpu (CPU only)

source /opt/modules/default/init/bash
module unload PrgEnv-cray
module load PrgEnv-pgi

amber-gpu (GPU only, CUDA 5.0)

source /opt/modules/default/init/bash
module unload PrgEnv-cray
module load PrgEnv-gnu
module load cudatoolkit/5.0.35

amber-gnu (GPU only, default CUDA)

source /opt/modules/default/init/bash
module unload PrgEnv-cray
module load PrgEnv-gnu
module load cudatoolkit
