This page outlines ways to generate and view performance data for your program using tools available at OSC.
This section describes how to use performance tools from Intel. Make sure that you have an Intel module loaded to use these tools.
Intel VTune is a tool to generate profile data for your application. Generating profile data with Intel VTune typically involves three steps:
The Owens and Pitzer clusters have access to the DDN Infinite Memory Engine (IME), a fast data tier between the compute nodes and the
/fs/scratch file system. IME is a Solid State Disk (SSD) that can act as a cache and burst buffer to improve the performance of the scratch file system.
While some jobs will benefit from using IME, others will not. You need to understand the workflow of IME well, since sometimes it is not very intuitive. Files must be explicitly imported, synchronized and/or purged.
Transmission3d is a 3-dimensional, multi-body gear contact analysis software capable of modeling complex gear systems developed by Ansol (Advanced Numeric Solutions). Multiple gear types, including: Helical, Straight Bevel, Spiral Bevel, Hypoids, Beveloids and Worms can be modeled. Multiple bearing types, as well as complex shafts, carriers and housings can also be modeled with the software. A variety of output data options including tooth bending stress, contact patterns, and displacement are also available.
NBO 6.0 has been installed on the Owens cluster; usage is via the module nbo/6.0. For information on available executables and installation details see the software page for NBO.
