Saddleback is a Randall group-owned linux cluster. The master node is "saddleback". The master is not a compute-node. Subordinate compute nodes are named sb1, sb2...
Cluster runs torque which is an open portable batch (pbs) system. To request an account, email Kelley.

An ~80TB RAID is attached via Infiniband to saddleback. It is accessible from other computers upon request. It is called /pond.
A 164TB RAID is on the network in the same rack. It is accessible from other computers upon request and is called /pool.

Specifics and install notes on the cluster can be found here.
