The CS Dept has various computing labs that house desktop Fedora-based Linux workstations. We also provide Fedora Linux based compute servers as well. These Linux systems are available for mostly educational use (course work.)
All of our Linux clients (the computing lab systems and the compute servers) are available remotely via logging in with ssh
There are two groups of Linux systems that we maintain.
- Grad Net Linux systems. Available to CS Faculty, grad students, researchers, postdocs, instructors, and staff.
- Ugrad Net Linux systems. Available to CS Faculty, grad students, researchers, postdocs, instructors, staff, and, of course,... ugrad students.
Generally, the software packages installed on both the Grad Net and Ugrad Net Linux systems are identical. However, the user login accounts are different (so, if you applied for both accounts on one account form, that's fine, but if you already applied for one type of account, but then later, need the other type, you must apply again for the other account.) Also, the Ugrad Net Linux systems implement disk quotas, while the Grad Net Linux systems do not (although, we ask that you do not over-extend your Grad Net disk usage, as others are sharing the same disk space.). Additionally, hardware might be different between the Grad and the Ugrad systems.
Please see the Subcategories and Pages lists below for additional info about our Linux systems.
NOTE: These Linux systems are mostly directed towards course work, but can be used for light research. Keep in mind that most of our focus on these systems is to make sure their resources are geared towards, and available for, the education side of the department. Therefore, since you are sharing these systems (CPU, memory, etc.) with other users, please make sure that you do not overload the processors on these systems. When your are completed running your processes, please make sure you stop those processes.
