Compute Servers


In addition to our Linux Cluster, we operate a network of Linux compute servers. Their names can be listed on any SCF machine by typing 'sitehosts compute' and include arwen (32 cores), gandalf (8), beren (8), roo (8), and treebeard (4). Please read the policies on running jobs on the compute servers.


The Linux compute server radagast (8 cores; 128GB RAM) is available for instructional users. Any non-course related jobs will be scaled back or, if need be, terminated to accommodate course work.

Students can also run jobs remotely (or in person) on Macintosh machines in our instructional labs in Rooms 342 and 443. The machines in 342 can be listed on any SCF machine by typing 'sitehosts 342' and include scf-ug02 through scf-ug11 (4 cores). scf-ug01 is the GSI machine. Room 432 has eeyore, glinda, malfoy, snape, ugluk, voldemort, and winnie.


All remote jobs should run at a nice level of 19.

Less powerful Linux machines accepting logins include bilbo, gimli, hagrid, pooh, shelob, and springer.

To connect to machines, please use SSH.
