Daresbury VMT PowerWall

We are currently configuring the Vigelen Genie Xeon Pro machine as a high-end graphics server for 3D stereo visualisation. It is intended to test software to drive a Fakespace Beacon DMSX+ system which we have had since 1/10/2006. This was previously driven by an SGI Prism with 4x FireGL X3 graphics pipes. A more modern solution should be easier to maintain and use. A second high-end server is being puchased for production use.

Software installed and tested on Viglen:

  • VTK - from Gentoo distro
  • OpenMotif - from Gentoo distro
  • OpenDX - formerly IBM Data Explorer, from Gentoo distro
  • Gimp - from Gentoo distro
  • xv - from Gentoo distro
  • ParaView - from Gentoo distro. Did not install paraview GUI because of incorrect QT4 settings, so installed from binary.
  • R - from Gentoo distro to follow
  • GraphViz - from Gentoo distro. Includes dot. Useful for visualising very large network diagrams.
  • SciRun - to be installed soon
  • VisIt 1.12.0 - from LLNL sources, being tested

Software installed on production server:
