The below table summarises where to install software on Pawsey supercomputers.
|Filesystem||When to install software||Reason|
|/home||Never||Potentially significant performance degradation for all users, system instability, small user quota, security risk created when permitting others to access your /home directory|
|/group||Always||High performance, negligible impact on other users, by default file permissions are open to rest of the research group and nobody else|
|/scratch||Never||It will be purged in 30 days if unused.|
