Grid Client Tools

Using OSG and Globus client software

You can either run the OSG/Globus client software directly on the NERSC systems via "modules" or by downloading it to your workstation.

On your workstation:
Download and install the OSG client software. Then run the following to setup your environment:



% source $INSTALL_DIR/setup.csh

On NERSC Compute Systems:
Use the module command to load the OSG or Globus toolkit. Where possible, you should use the default OSG module.
For Default OSG modules:

% module load osg

For non-OSG Globus (e.g. on the data transfer nodes):

% module load globus
