Simple question, likely a complicated answer. Cluster systems should have up
to three distinct file systems:
1) a place to compile and keep "stuff"
2) a bit of disk to use while code is running
3) potential a bit of disk with special characteristics, likely high-performance
Typically #1 would be called /home. Here at LSU, #2 is typically called
/var/scratch or /var/local/scratch. Then there is #3. Sometimes we call this
/scratch and sometimes /work.
My question: what do other folks call these bits of disk?
