Please use the new documentation url https://docs.rc.uab.edu/ for all Research Computing documentation needs.
As a result of this move, we have deprecated use of this wiki for documentation. We are providing read-only access to the content to facilitate migration of bookmarks and to serve as an historical record. All content updates should be made at the new documentation site. The original wiki will not receive further updates.

Welcome to UABgrid Documentation
This is the home for all UABgrid documentation. The documentation is implemented as a wiki to make it easier to construct and easier to accept contributions. If you see a topic that interests you please feel to get involved. If you don't see a topic that you feel should be covered, please jump in and create the page.
In order to edit the documentation, you'll need to click on the "Login with UABgrid" link in the upper right. Only that link will allow you to login in. It is not possible to log in using the other link.
If you experience any problems with UABgrid or see problems with the way this wiki is operating, please file a bug report. UABgrid is still considered beta and there are many improvements ahead, your problem reports are appreciated.
Note: we're in the early stages of building the documentation, so don't worry too much about where a topic should go. Just add a Wiki link to the list below, save the page, open the link you just created and start typing. We can better organize our topics as the content evolves.
