What do I do?

Me working on a 96-Processor Origin2000I currently manage large Silicon Graphics (SGI) Origin2000 systems for the University of Minnesota Supercomputing Institute for Digital Simulation and Advanced Computation. The Institute has a 62-processor Origin2000 with R12000 processors. We also have a 24-processor and an 8-processor Origin2000. These systems are housed in the Institute's Origin2000 Laboratory. In addition, we have two 4-processor R12000 Origin200 compute servers in the Basic Sciences Computing Laboratory. I also help manage SGI graphics workstations, SGI servers, Sun workstations, Windows NT machines, machines running Linux, and IBM RS6000 workstations located in Institute labs on campus. In addition, I assist in managing our IBM SP.

Essentially, I am a UNIX Systems Administrator. I have extensive experience with Silicon Graphics machines and Linux workstations. I also have experience with many other flavors of UNIX machines.
