Interactive Login Pool
The CDF Interactive Login Pool
(ILP) is a collection of linux nodes meant
to provide a reference environment for development of CDF software and
submission of jobs to the CDF Central Analysis Farm (CAF). Most
user-writable volumes are shared amongst the member nodes, so all nodes
cosmetically equivalent, though there will be variation in system
e.g. number of processors, processor power and memory.
Data Availability (discussed
in the User Guide, Section 3.1)
- 27 Apr 2006 - rootd access disabled on ILP nodes
- 20 Apr 2006 - rootd access added to ILP disk servers to try and improve performance and keep rootd from overloading login nodes
- 27 Jan 2006 - The hardware for fcdflnx4 failed and has been
replaced. fcdflnx4 is now running Scientific Linux Fermi 3.0.5.
For the time being, fcdflnx5-7 are still running the no-longer-supported
Fermi Linux 7.3.
- 19 Dec 2005 - Two additional nodes, fcdflnx8 and fcdflnx9, have
been added. Both of these run Scientific Linux Fermi 3.0.5, which is
a supported version of the operating system.
- 25 Feb 2005 - The hardware for fcdflnx5 has been replaced. Consequently, the IP address and ssh host keys have changed. If ssh complains about the new host key, remove the entry for fcdflnx5 from ~/.ssh/known_hosts and login anew.
- 11 Jan 2005 - Experiment data volumes have been moved from
fcdfsgi2 to Linux NFS servers.
- 04 Oct 2004 - ILP nodes made available for testing.
