Introduction


The newest cluster at UMSL is called grethor (grethor.umsl.edu), which augments the computing power available on the older cluster, expedition (expedition.umsl.edu). Both clusters use the Linux operating system. While most of the programs below run on both clusters, expedition will ultimately be phased out and grethor will take over.
