If no such page or instructions are provided, execute following command to put necessary path and library path into your environment.

$ source /usr/apps.sp3/nosupport/gsic/env/(software name)-(version).sh

Application performance analysis using Score-P

Details (In Japanese, Created: 2014/12/12)

Profiler and traces are used to investigate application performance bottlenecks.

Array-job execution using GXP

Details (In Japanese)

GXP makes massively parallel execution of array jobs more efficiently

Checkpointing using BLCR(Berkley Lab Checkpoint/Restart)

Details (PDF in Japanese, Created: 2011/04/01)

BLCR(Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart) is available in S and H queue nodes. Currently, BLCR cannot be used in MPI jobs because its installation does not work with MPI library. Please check with your environment before use, even though we don't find any problem at this moment.

GCC with OpenACC experimental support


GCC 5.1 in installed with enabling OpenACC experimental supoprt



Python interpreter.
This version is newer that that is installed in TSUBAME2 default environment, and some HPC packages such as PyCUDA are installed.

If you can't find necessary package, or package installed by GSIC is too old, please try this command after setting up external access:

$ pip install --user <packagename>



CMake is required to build application which has CMakeLists.txt in its archive.
This version is newer that that is installed in TSUBAME2 default environment.
