I just started experimenting with docker container for nwchem.

https://www.docker.com/

docker allows you to compile and run the program in a controlled environment, automating this process.

To create an NWCHEM image, one should run command
docker build -t nwchem .
in the directory with Dockerfile
Nwchem-6.6.revision27746-src.2015-10-20.tar.bz2 should be placed next to Dockerfile.

ENTRYPOINT  ["nwchem"]


after successful build one should run container to calculate input.nw file placed in <host_system_dir>
docker run -dv <host_system_dir>:/data nwchem "input.nw"
this command return container ID to read logs by
docker logs <container ID>

I think that this technology will be very useful for testing nwchem work in different environments.
Also It is possible to pause execution, and then continue.
docker pause <container ID>
docker unpause <container ID>


best, Vladimir.

Thank you very much for this contribution.
I quite agree that docker can be a very useful technology for testing NWChem.
Do you plan to put this dockerfile on github?
By the way, because the OpenBLAS library shipped with Ubuntu 14.04 uses 32-bit integers, I belive the following changes should be applied to the dockerfile

Hi Edo.

I plan to test this container on https://www.digitalocean.com/

After that, starting two or more containers in parallelsw with Docker Compose https://docs.docker.com/compose/
I do not fully understand how to write a docker-compose.yml for this. https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/#/network-configuration-reference
I do not understand how containers should be linked.
