Accessdev Storage


There are three storage types used on Accessdev

  • On-instance storage (root and /scratch), this is reset each time the VM is booted
  • Cloud storage (/projects) managed by the Accessdev admins
  • Lustre storage mounted via NFS for file systems shared between multiple machines, managed by NCI

Local Drives


/dev/vda on / type ext3 (rw)

Temporary VM storage:

/dev/vdb on /scratch type ext3 (rw)

/local and $TMPDIR

/etc/profile makes a directory /local/$PROJECT/$USER/tmp for $TMPDIR. /local is owned by root, so the script can't create /local/iv0 if absent. New projects need to have /local/$PROJECT created manually by

sudo mkdir --mode=2770 /local/$PROJECT       #(eg dp9)
sudo chgrp $PROJECT /local/$PROJECT

NFS Mounts

Home directories (includes /home/trac, /home/access-svn) on /home type nfs (rw)

Projects mount (includes /projects/access [should be on /scratch?]) on /projects/ type nfs (rw,addr=

Nothing here is critical as far as I know

??? on /var/spool/cron type nfs (rw)

Why is this a NFS mount?

none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
