Aquarium during lockdown
Due to the lockdown, and as the open-space rooms (A100, B100, C100, C120, and C101) are closed, we've made the machines there available for remote access.
The connection is using ssh, similar to the connection to the public servers.
From a CS machine:
From the VPN, or laptop on HUJI's wifi:
From home without the VPN
For more information on connecting using ssh, please see Connecting from outside.
There are several limitations to working on the aquarium workstations. Here are a few differences between connecting to the aquarium machiens and connecting to the public servers:
|Resource||Public servers (e.g. river)||Aquarium||Notes|
|Time||40 CPU minutes per process||8 hours per session (wall time)|
|Memory||4GB RAM per user||According to machine||Most aquarium machines have 16GB RAM.|
|Number of sessions||"Unlmited"||1 per user|
|Number of users||"Unlmited"||1 user per workstation|
|Number of machines||3||305|
|Background processes||Allowed||All processes are killed on logout|
|SSH tunnel||Supported||Not directly|| A tunnel can be opened to river when connecting to the aquarium, e.g.
ssh -L 22222:river:22 <user>@aquarium
