-The ''​%%portal%%''​ cluster is a general purpose cluster of four servers whose logins are load balanced among the four servers. Upon an '​ssh'​ to ''​%%portal.cs.virginia.edu%%'',​ your login will be placed on the least loaded of the cluster'​s servers (portal[01,​02,​03,​04]). Each system is running CentOS Linux 7, has 128GB of memory, 16 virtual cores, and ~200GB of scratch (/localtmp) space. The portal will eventually replace the old "​power*"​ nodes which are nearing retirement age.+The ''​%%portal%%''​ cluster is a general purpose cluster of servers whose logins are load balanced among the servers.

 +You can use portal to perform many interactive tasks, like editing files, compiling code, testing code, etc. If you intend to run long, compute intensive programs, you should use other computing resources in the Dept.  
 + 
 +You must use your CS domain userid (identical to your UVA userid) and password to '​ssh'​ to portal. For example: 
 + 
 +''​%%ssh -l jsp9ew portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​. Alternatively,​ 
 +''​%%ssh jsp9ew@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​ 
 + 
 +Note that if you are opening a terminal on your Mac or PC, your username on the Mac or PC may be different from your CS domain userid. So be sure to include your CS domain userid on the '​ssh'​ command line.
