OnDemand provides two related job managment tools, one which allows you to create and submit jobs via your web browser, and the other allows you to monitor your queued and running jobs.
OnDemand provides a web-based FTP client that can be used to upload and download files to your OSC home directory or project directory, and move, delete, rename, modify permissions, and even edit files.
OnDemand is our "one stop shop" for access to our High Performance Computing resources. With OnDemand, you can upload and download files, create, edit, submit, and monitor jobs, run GUI applications, and connect via SSH, all via a web broswer, with no client software to install and configure.
Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.
Octave has extensive tools for solving common numerical linear algebra problems, finding the roots of nonlinear equations, integrating ordinary functions, manipulating polynomials, and integrating ordinary differential and differential-algebraic equations. It is easily extensible and customizable via user-defined functions written in Octave's own language, or using dynamically loaded modules written in C++, C, Fortran, or other languages.
While our python installations come with many popular packages installed, you may come upon a case where you need an addiditonal package that is not installed. If the specific package you are looking for is available from Anaconda.org (formerlly binstar.org) you can easily install it and required dependencies by using the Conda package manager.
To be able to install a package using the conda package manager:
While we provide a number of Python modules, you may need a module we do not provide. If it is a commonly used module, or one that is particularly difficult to compile, you can contact OSC Help for assistance, but we have provided an example below showing how to build and install your own Python modules, and make them available inside of Python.
OSC provides Allinea Performance Reports and Allinea MAP to all OSC users.
- Allinea Performance Reports: very simple tool to generate one single-page HTML report that presents overall performance characteristics of HPC applications
- Allinea MAP: HPC application profiler with easy-to-use GUI environment.
The following versions of Allinea are available on OSC clusters:
Sometimes the best way to get access to a piece of software on the HPC systems is to install it yourself as a "local install". This document will walk you through the OSC-recommended procedure for maintaining local installs in your home directory or project space.
Early Access Period
Owens is expected to be available to all OSC clients on August 29, 2016. A small number of projects will be given access during the preceding 5 weeks to help us with testing and to provide feedback. Early access is by application only; the application deadline has passed.
Early access will be granted in several stages beginning July 25, 2016. Applicants will receive notification of their access date via ServiceNow.
