Plotting Software on Egate and Fgate

The two graphing packages gnuplot and grace are available on egate and fgate. These can be used to quickly generate plots, for instance to check intermediate results of a job, without having to download data from the cluster.

Gnuplot is a command-line graphing utility that can be used to create a variety of different plots in several output formats: from interactive screen display to graphic files such as postscripit and PDF.

Grace is WYSIWYG interactive plotting tool. Note that grace is a X11 application, thus to use it from the CCMST clusters one has to forward the X11 output (option -X of ssh) and one must have a X11 server running on the local computer.

Do you have usage tips that you want to share with the other CCMST users? Please send them to Massimo ( for inclusion in the Tip of the Week section.
