The deparment's halo computer cluster consists of a single front end node that users are able to directly logged into, halo-vm. Upon logging in, the system will automatically send the user to one of 4 nodes halo01, halo02, halo03, halo04, depending on which one is currently being used the least. Users are not able to directly log into these numbered halo nodes. Each of these nodes is an 8 core computer, and should have most of the typical software that you'll need (Matlab, grads, etc...)

The system will ask for a password a second time when being sent to one of the numbered nodes, to bypass this it is best to setup ssh keys
