Steps to getting started using the Physics Farm system at Jefferson Lab are listed below:

  1. Obtain Farm/ifarm access.
  2. Generate a SciComp user certificate for your account.
  3. Please join the email list jlab-scicomp-briefs@jlab.org to get email about the status and updates of resources. This is highly recommended.
  4. Considerable information about the status of the computing resources is available at the SciComp Portal: scicomp.jlab.org/scicomp/.  On the entry page you can find information about the status of the various systems, as well as important announcements about new capabilities, current problems or planned outages.  From the menu on the left you can get more detailed information about status and utilization, including reports by user or project for any arbitrary time interval.
