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), bellatrix (16), bilbo(16), gimli(16), lupin(16), snape(16), and springer(16). When sshing, you would enter their fully qualified names, e.g. 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 room 432 Evans. They can be listed on any SCF machine by typing 'sitehosts 432'. Room 432 has eeyore, glinda, malfoy, and ugluk.


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.
