Question: What is my VM specs and its bundle softwares?

Your Virtual server initially has min 4 CPUs, 8Gb of RAM and 50Gb of scratch storage with 7 days disk snapshot for backup.

Must alway save you data here:

/nfs/zfs/scratch/$Login_name

Do not save anything in local VM $home directory as the VM local disk is small and has no snapshot backup.

At anytime your project needs to have more CPU/Ram/Storage, let us know. You can mount your MathNet home directory for better backup using sshfs.

How do I use my VM?

Software installed: Matlab, Maple, Atlas, Sage, Octave, Blas, Lapack, Numpy, R statistics, Spicy, Xppaut, Xrpa/Screen for running app nohup remotely, Opensource development tools.
