"CENTER Old File Removal" on fish

Last Updated: Tue, 17 Dec 2013 -
Machines: linuxws pacman fish
CENTER Old File Removal 
ARSC has launched the automatic deletion of old files
residing on the $CENTER filesystem.  The automatic tool will run
weekly and will target files older than 30 days. 

To identify which of your files are eligible for
deletion, try running the following command: 
lfs find $CENTER -type f -atime +30

Remember, there are NO backups for data in $CENTER.  Once the data
is deleted, the data is gone.

Note: Modification of file timestamp information, data, or metadata
for the sole purpose of bypassing the automated file removal tool
is prohibited.

The policy regarding the deletion of old files is available on the
ARSC website:

Users are encouraged to move important but infrequently used
data to the intermediate and long term $ARCHIVE storage
filesystem. Recommendations for optimizing $ARCHIVE file
storage and retrieval are available on the ARSC website:

Please contact the ARSC Help Desk with questions regarding the
automated deletion of old files in $CENTER.

Using the Modules Package

The modules package is used to prepare the environment for various
applications before they are run.  Loading a module will set the
environment variables required for a program to execute properly.
Conversely, unloading a module will unset all environment variables
that had been previously set.  This functionality is ideal for
switching between different versions of the same application, keeping
differences in file paths transparent to the user.

Sourcing the Module Init Files
For some jobs, it may be necessary to source these files, as they 
may not be automatically sourced as with login shells.
Before the modules package can be used, its init file must first be

To do this using tcsh or csh, type:

   source /opt/modules/default/init/tcsh

To do this using bash, type

   source /opt/modules/default/init/bash

To do this using ksh, type:

   source /opt/modules/default/init/ksh

Once the modules init file has been sourced, the following commands
become available:

Command                     Purpose
module avail                - list all available modules
module load <pkg>           - load a module file from environment
module unload <pkg>         - unload a module file from environment
module list                 - display modules currently loaded
module switch <old> <new>   - replace module <old> with module <new>
module purge                - unload all modules (not recommended on fish)
