The cluster machines differ from debathena-workstation machines in a few ways:

  • serial reusability ("login chroots")
    • Users get root privileges
  • larvnet (workstation monitoring)
  • central syslogging
  • software metrics
  • hardcoded printer list
  • session-duration-limiting software ("bugme", on quickstation only)
  • "thirdparty" software (a giant metapackage pulling in a ton of Ubuntu software)
  • screensavers lock after 10 minutes and can be logged out after 20.
  • A number of disabled services:
    • "fast user switching"
    • sshd
