Stats section computer news


Stats Linux cluster

Stats has five high performance general purpose compute systems called:

fallas
festival
fiesta
fira
hustler

Users who are in the Stats research section can log into these remotely using ssh and run jobs such as R, Matlab, Maple and many other packages as described for the Maths compute cluster but do note that unlike the main compute cluster, the Stats cluster does not use job scheduling or any kind of user/task control. So you are free to run whatever you wish whenever you wish.

There are also some additional specialised compute and storage systems which for security reasons relating to the sensitive work being undertaken on them, have restricted access and are not documented here. Please contact Andy Thomas if you need to use these systems.
