Welcome to HPSSPy’s documentation!


HPSSPy is a Python package for interacting with the HPSS tape storage system at NERSC. It is currently being developed on GitHub.


HPSSPy assumes that the HPSS utilities hsi and htar are installed. You may need a NERSC account to download and install these utilities.

HPSSPy expects these utilities to exist in the directory ${HPSS_DIR}/bin, so be sure the environment variable HPSS_DIR is defined.
