SuperLU is a library for the direct solution of large, sparse, nonsymmetric systems of linear equations on high performance machines. It comes in two different flavors: SuperLU_MT (multithreaded) for shared memory parallel machines and SuperLU_DIST for distributed memory parallel machines.
Availability and Restrictions
SuperLU is available on Oakley Cluster. It comes in two different flavors: SuperLU_MT (multithreaded) for shared memory parallel machines and SuperLU_DIST for distributed memory parallel machines. The versions currently available at OSC are:
|SuperLU_MT||2.0||X||Default version on Oakley prior to 09/15/2015|
|SuperLU_DIST||3.0||X||Default version on Oakley prior to 09/15/2015|
You can use
module spider superlu to view available modules for a given machine. Feel free to contact OSC Help if you need other versions for your work.
