Server Issues
Changed:
<
<
Alphas: given the maintenance/licensing cost of the Alpha machines, and the limited use they receive, the decision was made to take them offline and procure a desk-side machine that can be used when specific architecture or compiler requirements dictate.
>
>
Space and cooling: We are out of both. Discussions of options are underway with the Dean's office.

Alphas: given the maintenance/licensing cost of the Alpha machines, their space and cooling requirements, and the limited use they receive, the decision was made to take them offline. Current users will be asked whether we need to procure a desk-side machine that can be used when specific architecture or compiler requirements dictate.

  Once the Alphas are removed, some more space will be opened for the next set of Linux systems to be added to the cluster. Additionally, a few of the Sun machines may need to be moved between server rooms.
Line: 51 to 53
 
Undergrads
Changed:
<
<
A new set of machines for the undergrad lab will be arriving at the end of the month. There was some discussion about how heavily utilized the lab tends to be, and whether there is enough demand to justify maintaining both a majors lab and a UG lab.
