Here is a complete list of our Sun systems (other than the Sun Ray devices, and FLITECAM and PUUNOA--which are part of private networks and not remotely accessible), listed in order of decreasing power (roughly). See the notes below the table for details.

All except FIRE and SERVER, as well as the ones recently upgraded to Solaris 9, have the same environment. In particular, the same software packages are installed on all of them, except for:

  • Borland Enterprise Server, Informix, and Jbuilder, which are available only on MOTHERLODE;
  • PKZip and Numerical Recipes, which are available only on GATEWAY;
  • Powerchute, which is available only on GATEWAY and SERVER
  • (due to licensing restrictions).

    You can also read your mail indifferently from any of them, or access any workstation's disk from any other. So performance is really the only significant difference.

    NOTES

  • access: groups/users with an account on the system (only rooms 8105/8117/8125/8359 are physically publicly accessible);

  • hostname:
  • leading + = runs 64-bit SunOS 5.9,
  • leading - = runs 64-bit SunOS 5.7;
  • otherwise: 32-bit SunOS 5.6.
  • room: 6### = Knudsen Hall, 8### = Mathematical Sciences;

  • models: B = Blade, F = Fire, SS = SPARCstation, U = Ultra;

  • CPU: SS = SuperSPARC, US = UltraSPARC;

  • clock: 2x/4x = dual-/quad- processor system;

  • bus: number before the / is for the video card (if applicable/available).
