Overview of the Ada Cluster

How is a cluster different from my laptop/desktop?

Logging in

ssh username@ada
  • "username" is your Middlebury username. If your username on the computer you're logging in from is also your Midd username (e.g. if you're using a college owned computer), then you can just use the command ("ssh ada").
  • You will be prompted for your Middlebury password--after you enter your password, you will now have a linux command prompt for the head node "ada".
  • You are now in your home directory on ada. From here you can access the filesystem in your home directory, using standard linux commands. For example, we can make a directory:
mkdir test_job
  • While it's not necessary, for convenience you can consider setting up public key authentication from your laptop or desktop; this will allow you to login securely without entering your password.
