Over the past two weeks we have experienced Oakely login node crashes potentially caused by a Lustre bug.

GAMESS

Introduction

The General Atomic and Molecular Electronic Structure System (GAMESS) is a flexible ab initio electronic structure program. Its latest version can perform general valence bond, multiconfiguration self-consistent field, Möller-Plesset, coupled-cluster, and configuration interaction calculations. Geometry optimizations, vibrational frequencies, thermodynamic properties, and solution modeling are available. It performs well on open shell and excited state systems and can model relativistic effects. The GAMESS Home Page has additional information.
