Compute servers

To run software that takes hours, days or weeks to finish, use a compute server.
There are several of them:

For undergraduate and MSc students

ssh student.compute.inf.ed.ac.uk

For postgraduate research students

ssh user.pgr.inf.ed.ac.uk

where user should be replaced by your DICE username - for example:

ssh s1234567.pgr.inf.ed.ac.uk

Although there are several of these servers, you should only use the one which this address takes you to.

For staff, visitors and postgraduate research students

ssh staff.compute.inf.ed.ac.uk

Tips

Use the longjob command when your job will run for longer than 18 hours.
There are also powerful computing clusters.
