There are two ways to connect to our systems. The traditional way will require you to install some software locally on your machine, including an SSH client, SFTP client, and optionally an X Windows server. The alternative is to use our zero-client web portal, OnDemand.
The Assisted Model Building with Energy Refinement (AMBER) package contains many molecular simulation programs targeted at biomolecular systems. A wide variety of modelling techniques are available. It generally scales well on modest numbers of processors, and the GPU enabled CUDA programs are very efficient.
The batch scheduler is configured with a number of scheduling policies to keep in mind. The policies attempt to balance the competing objectives of reasonable queue wait times and efficient system utilization. The details of these policies differ slightly on each system. Exceptions to the limits can be made under certain circumstances; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
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 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.
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.
Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL) consists of high-performance, multithreaded mathematics libraries for linear algebra, fast Fourier transforms, vector math, and more.
