Word from User Support

I am pleased to share with you this Fall edition of the Thread Newsletter. It showcases some of the many activities within SDSC's User Services Division including:

  • A feature story on a highly-scalable 3D FFT module that was developed as part of a SAC (Strategic Applications Collaborations) program. We hope the modules developed for this project may benefit others as well.
  • A new type of allocation is now being provided by SDSC for "Data Collections." This program is well underway and is already supporting over 80 collections. Details on how to apply for allocations provided in this issue.
  • We had a number of intensive week-long workshops this summer, and as we enter the Fall we will beging our regular introductory training program - "Introduction to SDSC Resources." Please see the training section of this issue for more information.

Best Regards,
Anke Kamrath
Division Director, SDSC User Services and Development

Always use MP_INFOLEVEL environment variable or the -infolevel option when you invoke POE to help trouble shooting abnormal job termination problems, for example:
cp: cannot stat `/dsgpfs/username/dir1/program': A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
ERROR: 0031-250 task 160: Terminated
Setting either of these to 6 gives you the maximum number of diagnostic messages when you run your program. - Eva Hocks.
