Hostnames  //  Monday, August 25, 2008

I have decided that, in addition to the canonical grid1, grid2, ..., gridN host names that have traditionally assigned to the Grid nodes, I will also give each node a common name. The machines will be available by either name, and it will make no difference which you use to reach them. Names will be synonymous with "distribute," a nod to the intended function of the nodes. My projected name list is as follows:
grid1 disseminate.cs.elon.edu
grid2 circulate.cs.elon.edu
grid3 dispense.cs.elon.edu
grid4 dole.cs.elon.edu
grid5 issue.cs.elon.edu
grid6 mete.cs.elon.edu
grid7 share.cs.elon.edu
grid8 apportion.cs.elon.edu

If anyone has suggestions for alternates, let me know. A Thesaurus only goes so far...
