NCI-data-analysis module supports all NCI computing platforms including Gadi, OOD and ARE.

Gadi

The NCI-data-analysis module can be loaded in both interactive and batch jobs running at Gadi.

You can load the NCI-data-analysis module as below in your interactive PBS job or put them in a batch job script. 

$ module use /g/data/dk92/apps/Modules/modulefiles
$ module load NCI-data-analysis/<version>

OOD

OOD is an online portal giving you access to compute resources at NCI via the Nirin cloud using tools such as VDI, or JupyterLab.  It provides an app based infrastructure that can be accessed via a web browser.

VDI

You can request a  OOD VDI session as below:

Then you can load the module directly in a terminal within the VDI session. 

$ module use /g/data/dk92/apps/Modules/modulefiles
$ module load NCI-data-analysis/<version>

You can start a local Jupyter notebook instance and access it via the VDI web browser, i.e. Firefox.

JupyterLab

Or, you can start a OOD JupyterLab session as shown below

Step 1:

Select "Number of Hours",

"Compute Size" and "Project" in seperate fields.

Step 2: 

Put "/g/data/dk92/apps/Modules/modulefiles" in "Module directories" field.

Put NCI-data-analysis/2022.06 in "Modules" field.

Step 3:

Wait until "Open jupyterLab" button is highlighted; Click it to open the JupyterLab session.

Step 4:

In the "Launch" page, select a Language including Python, R and Julia to start your notebook.


ARE

The ARE is a web-based graphical interface to enable NCI users to access Gadi based Virtual Desktop (VDI), JupyterLab, Terminal. You can find the difference between ARE and OOD from here.

VDI

You can launch a ARE VDI session as below

Because the VDI session is running within the Singularity image, you can not load NCI-data-analysis environment directly. Alternative, you need to ssh to the local host in a terminal and load the NCI-data-analysis module:

$ ssh localhost

$ module use /g/data/dk92/apps/Modules/modulefiles

$ module load NCI-data-analysis/2022.06

Then you can start a local Jupyter notebook and access it via the VDI web browser, i.e. Firefox.

JupyterLab

You can also start a ARE JupyterLab session to work with the NCI-data-analysis module as below

Step 1:

Choose appropriate resources in different fields.

Step 2:

Load the NCI-data-analysis/2022.06 module from the directory

/g/data/dk92/apps/Modules/modulefiles

Step 3:

Wait until "Open jupyterLab" button is highlighted; Click it to open the JupyterLab session.

Step 4:

In the "Launch" page, select a Language including Python, R and Julia to start your notebook.
