PAPI provides the tool designer and application engineer with a consistent interface and methodology for use of the performance counter hardware found in most major microprocessors. PAPI enables software engineers to see, in near real time, the relation between software performance and processor events.

This software will be of interest only to HPC experts.

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:


ParMETIS (Parallel Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering) is an MPI-based parallel library that implements a variety of algorithms for partitioning unstructured graphs, meshes, and for computing fill-reducing orderings of sparse matrices. ParMETIS extends the functionality provided by METIS and includes routines that are especially suited for parallel AMR computations and large scale numerical simulations. The algorithms implemented in ParMETIS are based on the parallel multilevel k-way graph-partitioning, adaptive repartitioning, and parallel multi-constrained partitioning schemes developed in Karypis lab.

METIS (Serial Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering) is a set of serial programs for partitioning graphs, partitioning finite element meshes, and producing fill reducing orderings for sparse matrices. The algorithms implemented in METIS are based on the multilevel recursive-bisection, multilevel k-way, and multi-constraint partitioning schemes developed in Karypis lab.
