FastX is a Graphical User Interface application that is designed to provide automatic X forwarding capabilities to the Eagle DAV nodes, specifically useful for working remotely. If you are remote this will allow you to run sessions that you can reconnect to without disrupting your work as it progresses. We do, however, request that you terminate your FastX session when not in use in order to free up license usage for other users. The FastX interface offers basic Linux terminal window applications with a selection of tools. See https://www.nrel.gov/hpc/eagle-software-fastx.html for a detailed description of how to use FastX in the NREL HPC environment.
