Beocat Policy

K-State Information Technology Usage Policy

As Beocat is a K-State resource, the following usage policy also applies: http://www.k-state.edu/policies/ppm/3420.html Please pay close attention to .050b, and .050d, as these are egregious violations.

Maintenance

Beocat reserves the right to a 12 hour maintenance period every other week on Monday from noon to midnight. However, this maintenance is not always necessary. Maintenance intentions and reservations will always be announced on the mailing list 2 weeks before an actual maintenance period is in effect.

Head node computational tasks

The head node serves as a shell server and development environment for Beocat users. We wish to keep this machine running responsively to make work easier. We do not have a problem with running simple post-processing work on the head node directly. But, if your process seems too computation or memory intensive, it may have its priority severely reduced or may be killed completely. If in doubt, ask.
