Access

The HPC cluster can be accessed remotely using ssh protocol. Nestum cluster has one Linux based node fe001 configured asĀ front-end with the hostname nestum.phys.uni-sofia.bg. Under *nix you can establish a terminal session using ssh client with password based authentication:

ssh -X mysername@nestum.phys.uni-sofia.bg

Windows OS users can use ssh terminal clients such as putty or console emulator cmder. Often Windows users need to install additional software such as Xming in order to access the cluster via GUI.

By default each user has a home folder /home/$GROUP/$USER with 5G user quota. In addition the user has a work folder /work/$GROUP/$USER with 500 GB group quota. It’s highly recommended to use the work folder for all production data.
