We have five dedicated servers on which G22.3033-010 students can do
their lab assignments. The machines are named
class5.scs.cs.nyu.edu. Your logname and password on
these machines should be what you specified on the first day of
class. If not, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Use the "ruptime" command to find a lightly loaded machine. Machines class1 - class5 have local disk space. On classN, make yourself a scratch directory under /home/cN/scratch. ====================================================================== class2 1%If you have problems with ssh, try running

classN, you can make yourself a local scratch directory under
/home/cN/scratch. (These directories are accessible from all the machines, but it is fastest to use local disk space.) Note that these directories are not backed up. Never leave important files in the scratch directories. The scratch space is meant for things like compiler output that can be recreated if necessary.
