Changes to HPC systems are listed below, optionally filtered by system.
We have updated pbsdcp to fix a rare bug seen with certain MPI libraries.
Star-CCM+ 8.06.007-R8 has been installed on Oakley, and is available by loading the module starccm/8.06.007.
Boost 1.56.0 has been installed on Oakley and is available by loading module boost. For information on compiling and linking with boost libraries, please refer to the software page.
222 compute nodes on Glenn have been removed from service to begin preparing for the arrival of Ruby compute nodes. There have been no other associated system changes. Jobs on Glenn may see more frequent waits in the queue than they have in the past due to a reduction of available resources, depending on scheduler load.
Amber 14 has been installed on Oakley and Glenn; usage is via the modules amber/14 on Oakley and amber14 on Glenn. For information on available executables and installation details see the software page for Amber or the output of the respective module help command, e.g.: module help amber/14
Intel compiler licenses have been updated. This should be invisible on the HPC systems. If you are a statewide user of the license, please set the
LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to
email@example.com before reporting issues.
Lustre jobs have been re-enabled on all clusters.
- StarCCM 9.04.011r8 and 9.01.012 (special build for LG Fuel Cell Systems Inc.) has been installed on Oakley, and is available by loading the module starccm/9.04.011r812 or starccm/9.04.011r812 respectively.
On both production clusters, we have begun rejecting jobs that request the use of Lustre or $PFSDIR in order to reduce job failures caused by the triggering of a bug that crashes the filesystem. If you have a GPFS allocation, you may if appropriate want to move your data there in order to maintain productivity while the Lustre service is in a degraded state.
