Host name: this is the name visible on the terminals, and it is also the Internet hostname if you append ".math.ubc.ca".

OS: Operation system - this falls basically into two camps: Windows (usually 2000 or XP) and Unix (usually Solaris or Linux).

Processor / Memory: the processor and its speed as well as the amount of physical memory.

Access: the protocol or type of access this host will accept.

Notes: Special software or features of this host.
