  1. Due to the various machines available at HPCC, it is recommended to compile you DAMASK on a relatively older machine/server. This will ensure that your jobs can run on all servers without running into “illegal instruction error” due to compatibility issue.


  2. For all CMM users on HPCC, the default compiler is set to Intel-16.3 and the stable PETSc is linked to /mnt/research/CMM/opt/petsc/3.6.3–Intel-16.3, which is compiled on node “dev-intel14”.
