Connection to LAMBDA

What is Lambda?

Lambda is a Slurm based computational cluster. It is a group of servers that provide computational resources to the faculty’s undergraduate students.

Accessing the LAMBDA Cluster

Note: Lambda is not available from outside the Technion. If you’re working outside the campus, you will need to connect to the Technion’s network via VPN as described here: English | Hebrew

After receiving login permissions, SSH to ‘lambda.cs.technion.ac.il’:
ssh ‑X @lambda.cs.technion.ac.il
If you’re connected via VPN and you receive an Unknown Host error, use:
ssh -X @132.68.39.159

Your username is your @campus.technion.ac.il username and the password is the same one you use to log in to that account.
