CUDA™ (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by Nvidia that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU).

Job Submission

Job scripts are submitted to the batch system using the qsub command.  Be sure to submit your job on the system you want your job to run on.

The batch systems on different clusters are entirely separate; one knows anything about the jobs queued or running on other systems.  You may edit your batch scripts anywhere, but you must submit and monitor your jobs from a login node on the system where you want to run.

Software List

Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has a variety of software applications to support all aspects of scientific research. We are actively updating this documentation to ensure it matches the state of the supercomputers. This page is currently missing some content; use module spider on each system for a comprehensive list of available software.


COMSOL Multiphysics (formerly FEMLAB) is a finite element analysis and solver software package for various physics and engineering applications, especially coupled phenomena, or multiphysics. owned and supported by COMSOL, Inc.

Important Note: From March 14, 2018, Comsol is unavailable from Oakley for academic users. If you have any questions, please contact OSC Help.
