The Technology Audit Service has developed, XDMoD, a resource management tool. This paper utilizes XDMoD and the XDMoD data warehouse that it draws from to provide a broad overview of several aspects of XSEDE users and their usage. Some important trends include: 1) in spite of a large yearly turnover, there is a core of users persisting over many years, 2) user job submission has changed from primarily faculty members to students and postdocs, 3) increases in usage in Molecular Biosciences and Materials Research has outstripped that of other fields of science, 4) the distribution of user external funding is bimodal with one group having a large ratio of external funding to internal XSEDE funding (ie, CPU cycles) and a second group having a small ratio of external to internal (CPU cycle) funding, 5) user job efficiency is also bimodal with a group of presumably new users running mainly small inefficient jobs and another group of users running larger more efficient jobs, 6) finally, based on an analysis of citations of published papers, the scientific impact of XSEDE coupled with the service providers is demonstrated in the statistically significant advantage it provides to the research of its users.
