Linux Lab (EEB 365)

View the status of the Linux Lab nodes.

General Information

General Usage

The UNIX Tutorial for Beginners covers how to use UNIX / Linux systems.

  1. Your Linux lab home directories will be the same as your EE home dirs (your H:\ or eesmbfs share in the Windows labs).
  2. Software available on the Linux lab nodes (may be incomplete; run rpm -qa and dig around under the /home/lab.apps directory to find all the software installed).
  3. Please do not uncable, reboot, or shutdown the machines; other people may be logged on remotely (type the who command in a terminal to see who else is logged in). If your session has frozen on one computer, it is likely that you can SSH in from a different system and kill off any problematic processes. Never use kill -9, as this will likely leave orphaned lockfiles (especially for Gnome or Firefox) that will cause problems.
  4. Space in /tmp can be used for temporary storage, i.e. computing jobs, data sets, etc.
  5. /tmp IS NOT BACKED UP. Do Not put things in /tmp that can not be recreated.

Cluster

There are several cluster options:

  1. General clustering information
  2. Matlab specific information

X-Forwarding over SSH

Generally, In order to display an X application from a remote machine, one simply needs to supply the -X switch when ssh'ing into the remote machine. For instance, if one want's to use cadence from our Linux lab nodes, typing:

ssh -X linuxNN.ee.washington.edu in an xterm and then running cadence normally upon login should produce cadence on the display one is currently sitting at. -XY may be necessary for some applications (trusted forwarding).

Another option is to setup a VNC session, then connect to that.
