Oscar User Manual

Welcome to CCV's user manual!

This manual is primarily a guide for using Oscar, a large compute cluster maintained by CCV for use by Brown researchers. All new users are recommended to read through the "Getting Started" page.

Conventions

We use angular brackets to denote command-line options that you should replace with an appropriate value. For example, the placeholders <user> and <group> should be replaced with your own user name and group name. The $ sign at the beginning of commands represents the command prompt. Do not copy that while copying commands to your shell.
