New Biowulf Login Node (Biowulf)Date: 30 July 2010 14:07:31
From: steven fellini (sfellini@NIH.GOV)
During the maintenance period this past Monday, the Biowulf login node (biowulf.nih.gov) was upgraded to a new hardware platform. Please note the following: -- The login node is now running the 64-bit version of Linux. Users who compile code may experience problems related to linking newly compiled code with pre-existing 32-bit libraries. If you need assistance in compiling your code please contact the Biowulf staff (email@example.com). -- The login node is now connected to the NIHnet backbone network via 10 Gb/s ethernet. Users who likewise have 10 Gb/s access to the NIHnet core should experience an increase in file transfer performance. -- As before, compute intensive applications should not be run on the login node.
