The FLC Hosts
The FLC group has a set of desktop computers with names currently ranging from flc01 to flc## – see the FLC computing pages for details about these machines (not very up to date, TODO)
- There are some servers for the FLC group:
flcl01 serves multiple purposes – it can be used for remote login (hence its name), it provides a certain amount of data storage (currently 170 GB) and it is included in the central backup. flcl01 has two CPUs and a bit of RAM (currently 1 GB), but you should not abuse it as a working horse for CPU-expensive jobs. Keep in mind that the disk space has to shared among approximately 50 users – please don’t be inconsiderate. Please use the DESY pal cluster 'pal.desy.de' and for login 'bastion.desy.de' or the NAF2 ILC direct login host 'nafhh-ilc01.desy.de' instead.
flcweb01 is home to our old FLC web pages.
ATTENTION: flcl01 and flcweb01 are all running on outdated hardware and software. Please don't use these for current work anymore, they are being phased out.
FLC has a batch cluster which can be used to run multiple computing jobs in parallel.
Outdated: lc3 and lc4 are file servers which provide large amounts of data storage (currently 1.4 TB on each machine). However, you should note that they are – at least in principle – only intended as a temporary storage for jobs which run on the FLC batch clusters. Therefore they are not included in the FLC backup.For moderately large analysis data (<200GB) please consider using the AFS XXL pool volumes in /afs/desy.de/group/flc/pool - contact your group admins for help if you haven't got an individual directory there yet. Larger volumes of data should be stored in NAF (dust aka SONAS) system or on GRID.
