Accessing workstations on cdf


#1

As some people are asking about it, as I mentioned in a previous post
it seems that the cdf admins do not allow you to ssh to a workstation.
I will inquire about it.
But you can still use wolf with a few cores so that you at least run something on parallel cores.

I expect ot get a response to my inquiry very soon.


#2

I’m wondering would it be faster if we use one CSlab server with 64 cores, compared with multiple CDF servers that are connected via ethernet?


#3

First, not everybody has access to cslab, while everybody has access to cdf, but second and most important, it is prohibited to use cslab for coursework.


#4

Thanks for the reply and I won’t use CSlab servers for my homework. I’m curious about which one is a better option for running parallel algorithms in my future research.
