Licensing and Access
To run Desmond you need to add the correct module to your environment.
The default version of Desmond on ARCHER is currently 184.108.40.206, so
module add desmond
will give you access to desmond v220.127.116.11
Example Job Submission Script
The desmond job should be run from the directory in which the input files are stored. Below is an example job submission script adapted from that used to perform the parallel test specified by the files included with the Desmond distribution. This example uses just two cores from one node: each ARCHER node has 24 cores.
#!/bin/bash --login #PBS -N des_job #PBS -l select=1 #PBS -l walltime=1:0:0 # Replace this with your budget code #PBS -A budget # Move to directory that script was submitted from export PBS_O_WORKDIR=$(readlink -f $PBS_O_WORKDIR) cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR module add desmond # This prevents any system libraries from using threading export OMP_NUM_THREADS=1 aprun -n 2 desmond \ --include ./share/samples/dhfr.cfg \ --cfg boot.file=./share/samples/dhfr.dms \ --cfg mdsim.plugin.eneseq.name=dhfr.eneseq \ --destrier mpi
