lsst9 has been connected to NCSA's mass storage system and has about nine terabytes of storage in the directory /lsst. About 1.7 TB is currently being used to store the compressed form of the test images.

lsst10 has been configured with extra memory for use with the MySQL server.

MySQL 5.0.45 has been installed and is running on lsst10; we have opened port 3306 to allow for remote access to the database.

Some MySQL accounts have already been created. If you don't have an account and would like one, please contact David Gehrig.
