Background

This page provides a high-level summary of NLPL-specific software installed on either of our two systems. As a rule of thumb, NLPL aims to build on generic software installations provided by the system maintainers (e.g. development tools and libraries that are not discipline-specific), using the modules infrastructure. For example, an environment like OpenNMT is unlikely to be used by other disciplines, and NLPL stands to gain from in-house, shared expertise that comes with maintaining a project-specific installation. On the other hand, the CUDA libraries are general extensions to the operating system that most users of deep learning frameworks on gpus will want to use; hence, CUDA is most appropriately installed by the core system maintainers. Frameworks like PyTorch and TensorFlow, arguably, present a middle ground to this rule of thumb: In principle, they are not discipline-specific, but in mid-2018 at least the demand for installations of these frameworks is strong within NLPL, and the project will likely benefit from growing its competencies in this area.

Module Catalogue

The discipline-specific modules maintained by NLPL are not activated by default. To make available the NLPL community directory of software modules, on top of the pre-configured, system-wide modules, one needs to execute the following (on Abel, Puhti, or Taito):

module use -a /proj*/nlpl/software/modules/etc

For Saga, the NLPL community directory is in a different location:

module use -a /cluster/shared/nlpl/software/modules/etc

We will at times assume a shell variable $NLPLROOT that points to the top-level project directory, i.e. /projects/nlpl/ (on Abel), /proj/nlpl/ (on Taito), /projappl/nlpl/ (on Puhti), and /cluster/shared/nlpl/ (on Saga).

For NLPL users, we recommend that one adds the above module use command to the shell start-up script, e.g. .bashrc in the user home directory.

To inspect what is available, one can use the avail sub-command (on Abel), e.g.

module avail 2>&1 | grep nlpl

User-Installed Software

Even if NLPL strives to make available a comprehensive set of ready-to-run sofware modules, users will at times want to install their own add-on components. For Python add-on components, some emerging instructions are available.

Activity A: Basic Infrastructure

Interoperability of NLPL installations with each other, as well as with system-wide software that is maintained by the core operations teams for Abel and Taito, is no small challenge; neither is parallelism across the two systems, for example in available software (and versions) and techniques for ‘mixing and matching’. These challenges are discussed in some more detail with regard to the Python programming environment and with regard to common Deep Learning frameworks.
