A cxx11 module has been added to provide C++11 support for the Intel 14 and 15 C++ compilers. See OSC's Intel compiler page for details.
PAPI 5.4.1 (the newest version) has been installed on Oakley and Ruby. This tool can be used via "module load papi/5.4.1".
Also a software page is created for PAPI, where the deatils about PAPI module and usage are available.
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.
matlab version r2015a and r2015b have been installed on oakley and ruby.
The default modules of some packages were updated on Ruby. Users who have built their own software may be required to rebuild their software or explicitly load the compiler and MPI modules used in building the software. For more details
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.
The mpi4py and mpich2 packages have been removed from python (anaconda) on Oakley and Ruby.

OSC is refreshing the software stack on Ruby on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime). During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date. Information about the old and 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.
OSC timely installs new software versions on OSC systems, and periodically do coordinated software refresh (update the default versions to be more up-to-date and remove some versions that are quite out of date) on OSC systems. While we encourage everyone to use up-to-date software, the old defaults will still be available till the next software refresh, in case some users prefer to use the old defaults. The software refresh is usually made during the scheduled downtime, while we will send out notifications to all users ahead of time for any questions/suggestions/concerns.
