Allinea MAP

Allinea MAP is a full scale profiler for HPC programs. We recommend to use Allinea MAP after reviewing reports from Allinea Performance Reports. It supports pthreads, OpenMP, or MPI code on CPU, GPU, or MIC based architecture.


The Schrodinger molecular modeling software suite includes a number of popular programs focused on drug design and materials science but of general applicability, for example Glide, Jaguar, and MacroModel.  Maestro is the graphical user interface for the suite.  It allows the user to construct and graphically manipulate both simple and complex chemical structures, to apply molecular mechanics and dynamics techniques to evaluate the energies and geometries of mole


MPI is a standard library for performing parallel processing using a distributed-memory model. The Oakley, Ruby, and Owens clusters at OSC can use the OpenMPI implementation of the Message Passing Interface (MPI), which is based on MPICH.

ANSYS Mechanical

ANSYS Mechanical is a finite element analysis (FEA) tool that enables you to analyze complex product architectures and solve difficult mechanical problems. You can use ANSYS Mechanical to simulate real world behavior of components and sub-systems, and customize it to test design variations quickly and accurately.

Availability and Restrictions

ANSYS Mechanical is available on the Oakley Cluster. The versions currently available at OSC are:


SuiteSparse is a suite of sparse matrix algorithms, including: UMFPACK(multifrontal LU factorization), CHOLMOD(supernodal Cholesky, with CUDA acceleration), SPQR(multifrontal QR) and many other packages.

Updates to Ruby Application Software - September 2015

OSC is refreshing the software stack on Ruby on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime). During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date. Information about the old and new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage. See

Software Refresh

OSC timely installs new software versions on OSC systems, and periodically do coordinated software refresh (update the default versions to be more up-to-date and remove some versions that are quite out of date) on OSC systems. While we encourage everyone to use up-to-date software, the old defaults will still be available till the next software refresh, in case some users prefer to use the old defaults. The software refresh is usually made during the scheduled downtime, while we will send out notifications to all users ahead of time for any questions/suggestions/concerns.
