OSC will be refreshing the software stack for Owens and Pitzer on May 19, 2020. This will be done in a system-wide downtime. During the software refresh, some default versions will be changed to be more up-to-date. Information about the new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.
An ACL (access control list) is a list of permissions associated with a file or directory. These permissions allow you to restrict access to a certain file or directory by user or group.
OSC supports NFSv4 ACL on our home directory and POSIX ACL on our project and scratch file systems. Please see the how to use NFSv4 ACL for home directory ACL management and how to use POSIX ACL for managing ACLs in project and scratch file systems.
NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) is an interface for array-oriented data access and a library that provides an implementation of the interface. The netcdf library also defines a machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together, the interface, library, and format support the creation, access, and sharing of scientific data.
For mpi-dependent codes, use the non-serial NetCDF module.
Profile information can be changed by logging in with valid osc credentials to the OSC client portal and navigating to the profile page by clicking the display name in the upper right corner of the page and selecting Edit my profile.
HDF5 is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data. HDF5 can store two primary objects: datasets and groups. A dataset is essentially a multidimensional array of data elements, and a group is a structure for organizing objects in an HDF5 file. Using these two basic objects, one can create and store almost any kind of scientific data structure, such as images, arrays of vectors, and structured and unstructured grids.
For mpi-dependent codes, use the non-serial HDF5 module.
Previously, intel/19.0.3 and intel/19.0.5 compilers automatically load gcc-compatibility modules as following:
On Pitzer: gcc-compatibility/8.1.0 On Owens: gcc-compatibility/8.3.0
Now, gcc-compatibility/8.4.0 will be loaded consistantly. This has a very low impact, but if you have any issues, please contact OSC Help
StarCCM 15.02.007 is installed on Owens
module load starccm/15.02.007
module load starccm/15.02.007-mixed
