Budgets are a tool for faculty to limit their service utilization. They are not retroactive, and count service fees between when they are implemented and their expiration date. Budgets are decreased when the job accounting is inserted into the main database after jobs complete, or when daily storage quotas are reported to the main database.

Globus is a reliable, high-performance file transfer platform allowing users to transfer large amounts of data seamlessly between systems. It aims to make transfers a "click-and-forget" process by setting up configuration details in the background and automating fault recovery.  

Globus can be used for both file transfers between OSC and:

Trinity represents a novel method for the efficient and robust de novo reconstruction of transcriptomes from RNA-seq data.

Availability and Restrictions

The following versions of Trinity are available on OSC clusters:

Securely transferring files at OSC

Files containing personal health information (PHI) must be encrypted when they are stored (at rest) and when they are transferred between networked systems (in transit).

Transferring files securely to OSC involves understanding which commands/applications to use and which directory to use.

Keep protected data in proper locations

Providing access to protected data locations

PHI data transferred to OSC will be set with permissions to restrict access to only project users. Project users are determined by group membership. For example, project PEX1234 has a protected data location at /fs/ess/PEX1234 and only users in the group PEX1234 may access data in that dir.

See access control list how-to for more information on how it works.


As we migrate to Slurm from Torque/Moab, there will be necessary software environment changes.

Decommissioning old MVAPICH2 versions

Old MVAPICH2 including mvapich2/2.1mvapich2/2.2 and its variants do not support Slurm very well due to its life span, so we will remove the following versions:

OSC clients who are affiliated with Ohio State can deploy their own endpoint on a server using OSU subscriptions. Please follow the steps below:

Manage users on a project

The PI of a project can manage the users on their projects. This includes inviting, adding and removing users to the project as well as increasing a user's privileges on a project so that they can assist with the management of it.

To manage a project, navigate to Project -> List Projects and select the blue button on the left of the appropriate project.
