Introduction

The ADF (Amsterdam Density Functional) Modeling Suite offers powerful computational chemistry tools for many research areas such as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, inorganic chemistry, heavy element chemistry, various types of spectroscopy, and biochemistry.

Compute Canada users have access to the following products:

  • ADF
  • ADF-GUI
  • BAND
  • BAND-GUI
  • DFTB
  • ReaxFF
  • COSMO-RS
  • QE-GUI
  • NBO6

Running ADF on Graham

ADF is installed only on Graham due to license restrictions. To check what versions are available on Graham, use the module spider adf command, for example

[name@server $] module spider adf

For module commands, please see Using modules.

Job submission

Graham uses the Slurm scheduler; for details about submitting jobs, see Running jobs.

Single ADF or BAND run

This mysub.sh script is for a whole-node job. The last two lines load version 2017.207 and call ADF directly.

File : mysub.sh

#!/bin/bash
#SBATCH --nodes=1 --ntasks-per-node=32  # 1 node with 32 cpus, you can modify it
#SBATCH --mem=0                         # request all memory on node
#SBATCH --time=00-03:00                 # time (DD-HH:MM)
#SBATCH --output=adf_test-%j.log        # output file

module load adf/2017.207
ADF adf_test.inp


This is the input file used in the script:

File : adf_test.inp

Multiple ADF or BAND runs within one input file

Multiple calculations can be combined into a single job by creating a script such as this:

File : GO_H2O.run

#!/bin/bash
if test -z "$SCM_TESTOUTPUT" ; then SCM_TESTOUTPUT=GO_H2O.out; fi

$ADFBIN/adf << eor > $SCM_TESTOUTPUT

The following script is identical to the one used for a single run (mysub.sh), except that the last line calls the GO_H2O.run script, instead of ADF.

File : GO_H2O.sh

#!/bin/bash
#SBATCH --nodes=1 --ntasks-per-node=32  # 1 node with 32 cpus, you can modify it
#SBATCH --mem=0                         # request all memory on node
#SBATCH --time=00-03:00                 # time (DD-HH:MM)
#SBATCH --output=GO_H2O_%j.log          # output file

module load adf/2017.207
bash GO_H2O.run                            # run the shell script



Examples

Example input/output for ADF can be found on Graham under

/home/jemmyhu/tests/test_ADF/2017.207/test_adf/

The same procedure applies to BAND jobs, see band_test.inp and band_test.sh examples under

/home/jemmyhu/tests/test_ADF/2017.207/test_band

Running ADF-GUI on Graham

Rendering over an SSH connection with X11 forwarding is very slow for GUI applications such as ADF-GUI. We recommend you use VNC to connect if you will be running ADF-GUI on Graham.

An example of how to install, connect and run ADF-GUI using TigerVNC can be found on TigerVNC-for-ADF-GUI.

Running ADF-GUI locally

SCM has a separate license to run ADF-GUI on a local machine. If you are interested in using ADF-GUI on your local machine, you can contact license@scm.com to purchase your own license.
