An LC Computer Coordinator is the point of contact between LC and the user community the Coordinator represents.

Primary Responsibilities

A Computer Coordinator

This page includes a table that helps determine what is needed to access classified (SCF), unclassified Collaboration Zone (OCF-CZ), and unclassified Restricted Zone (OCF-RZ) Livermore Computing (LC) systems.

We are scheduling large dedicated application runs on M&IC machines, usually during a weekend. Some of these runs may require that the entire machine be dedicated to them.

This is a policy governing the use of the /usr/gapps subdirectory, available on LC production computing resources.

The /usr/gapps file system contain user-supported files that are shared with a number of users, such as applications codes, files used to execute these codes, and source codes maintained or used by a group of LC users.

This page describes the processes for requesting the adding of printcap entries for both SCF and OCF.

This page provides links to ASC policies, LC policies, and LLNL policies.

The Livermore Computing Center recognizes that our user's work can be seriously impacted by the unavailability of systems and services. Unfortunately, some amount of interruption in service is unavoidable. The Center strives to minimize user disruption caused by scheduled interruptions for repairs, updates, installation of new equipment, troubleshooting, or preventive maintenance.

Retrieve files on the SCF by using SFTP/SCP, FTP or Hopper to make a copy of a file from the transfer server to your local machine. Initiate the FTP client software, connect to fastfis.llnl.gov, and complete the authentication process (by specifying a user name and SCF password). After you have connected to to fastfis.llnl.gov, change to your FROM directory and list the file(s) in the directory.


FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is an industry-standard protocol and user interface for transferring files between computer systems by means of a series of interactive commands. FTP involves a local client (software you execute to send or receive files) and a remote server (software elsewhere that responds to instructions from your client to accept or deliver files).

The Livermore Computing (LC) Identity Management (IdM) System automates the process of provisioning (creating and updating) and deprovisioning (deleting) user accounts across LC's multiple systems. IdM also allows the management of of accounts, groups, and LC identities for both the Open Computing Facility (OCF)—Collaboration Zone (CZ) and Restricted Zone (RZ)—and the Secure Computing Facility (SCF).
