Farewell, Jim Wilgenbusch

After 13 years at Florida State University, our director, Jim Wilgenbusch, will leave Tallahassee to take a position as the Associate Director of the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota.

After Jim’s departure in late June, Dr. Paul van der Mark will serve as the interim RCC director while representatives from several academic departments, the Office of Research and ITS conduct a search for a permanent director.

We are grateful for Jim’s dedication to the RCC and many contributions to its success and wish him and his family the best in their move to the Twin Cities. And remember, once a Nole always a Nole!

New Software: Tuning and Analysis Utilities

Tuning and Analysis Utilities (TAU) is now available on HPC login nodes.

TAU is a powerful performance analysis and tracing tool for parallel applications created with Fortran, Python, Java, C++, C and many other programming languages.  It provides visual analysis tools for evaluating time spent on each function, subroutine, loop, or phase; measuring speed (FLOPS); finding memory leaks in C/C++ code; and much, much more.

Spotlight: Storm Risk Center

When it comes to hurricanes, it’s only a matter of time before the next big storm strikes Florida.  That’s one reason why, in 2007, Florida’s Legislature created The Florida Catastrophic Storm Risk Management Center at Florida State University.

The Center uses the RCC's SKY system to host a clearinghouse for research and information related to storm risk.
