  • Use simple SSH, or use X2Go for a desktop environment.

  • Scratch files for computational jobs can be stored in /egr/scratch. /egr/scratch is available from all central login and compute servers. Files or directories more than 7 days old on /egr/scratch are removed because scratch space is temporary space. /egr/scratch is never backed up. Files needed for long-term usage or archives should be stored in another directory that is backed up, such as /home or /egr/research.

  • Screen and Nohup are available to run a process (job) on a server and have it continue after you have logged out or otherwise lost connection to the server.

  • All servers with an uptime greater than 30 days are subject to being rebooted for maintenance and patches. All servers are subject to an unscheduled reboot if an emergency maintenance procedure requires it. Scully is subject to being rebooted for maintenance and patches on any day, usually between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m.

  • Looking for the least loaded server? On any of the linux servers, type computeuse at the command prompt.

  • Compute server usage questions may be directed to support@egr.msu.edu. For questions regarding compute server status please contact unixadmin@egr.msu.edu.
