SSHing directly to a compute node at OSC - even if that node has been assigned to you in a current batch job - and starting VNC is an "unsafe" thing to do. When your batch job ends (and the node is assigned to other users), stray processes will be left behind and negatively impact other users. However, it is possible to use VNC on compute nodes safely.
STAR-CCM+ provides the world’s most comprehensive engineering physics simulation inside a single integrated package. Much more than a CFD code, STAR‑CCM+ provides an engineering process for solving problems involving flow (of fluids and solids), heat transfer and stress. STAR‑CCM+ is unrivalled in its ability to tackle problems involving multi‑physics and complex geometries. Support is provided by CD-adapco. CD-adapco usually releases new version of STAR-CCM+ every four months.
OpenACC is a standard for parallel programming on accelerators, such as Nvidia GPUs and Intel Phi. It consists primarily of a set of compiler directives for executing code on the accelerator, in C and Fortran. OpenACC is currently only supported by the PGI compilers installed on OSC systems.
OnDemand provides a web-based FTP client that can be used to upload and download files to your OSC home directory or project directory, and move, delete, rename, modify permissions, and even edit files.
OnDemand is our "one stop shop" for access to our High Performance Computing resources. With OnDemand, you can upload and download files, create, edit, submit, and monitor jobs, run GUI applications, and connect via SSH, all via a web broswer, with no client software to install and configure.
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.
TurboVNC is an implementation of VNC optimized for 3D graphics rendering. Like other VNC software, TurboVNC can be used to create a virtual desktop on a remote machine, which can be useful for visualizing CPU-intensive graphics produced remotely.
Availability and Restrictions
TurboVNC is available on Oakley and Glenn Clusters. The versions currently available at OSC are:
The Visualization ToolKit (VTK) is an open source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing and visualization. VTK consists of a C++ class library and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java and Python.
TotalView is a symbolic debugger which supports threads, MPI, OpenMP, C/C++ and Fortran, plus mixed-language codes. Advanced features include on-demand memory leak detection, heap allocation debugging and the Standard Template Library Viewer (STLView). Other features like dive, a wide variety of breakpoints, the Message Queue Graph/Visualizer, powerful data analysis and control at the thread level give you the power you need to solve tough problems.
Gnuplot is a portable command-line driven data and function plotting utility. It was originally intended to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data.
