This is the hub for the CS sysadmins on the wiki.

Overview

If you're visually inclined, we have a colorful and easy-to-edit map of our servers here!

Server room

Our servers are in Noyes, the science building that predates the CST. For general information about the server room and how to use it, check out this page.

Columns: machine name, IPs, type (virtual, metal), purpose, dies, cores, RAM

Compute (servers and clusters)

There are 6 machines currently not in use in the 6 spaces above Monitor on the Equitorial Guinea rack

Specialized resources

Specialized computing applications are supported on the following machines:

Network

We have two network fabrics linking the machines together. There are three subdomains.

10 Gb

We have 10Gb fabric to mount files over NFS. Machines with 10Gb support have an IP address in the class C range 10.10.10.0/24 and we want to add DNS to these addresses.

1 Gb (cluster, cs)

We have two class C subnets on the 1Gb fabric: 159.28.22.0/24 (CS) and 159.28.23.0/24 (cluster). This means we have double the IP addresses on the 1Gb fabric that we have on the 10Gb fabric.

Any user accessing *.cluster.earlham.edu and *.cs.earlham.edu is making calls on a 1Gb network.

Intra-cluster fabrics

The layout cluster has an Infiniband infrastructure. Wachowski has only a 1Gb infrastructure.

Power

We have a backup power supply, with batteries last upgraded in 2019 (?). We’ve had a few outages since then and power has held up well.

HVAC

HVAC systems are static and are largely managed by Facilities.

See full topology diagrams here.

A word about what's happening between files and the drives they live on.
