Automount is the system that automatically mounts and unmounts network disks when the user requests access.
Starting with Fedora 20 (2014), the most important disks
/software, ar no longer hard-mounted, but configured through a special type of automount (through systemd, for those who like to know the details). Most of this is transparent to users. Just don't despair if you don't see
/software mounted on your computer, it will be available as soon as you need something from it.
All data disks of desktops and compute nodes are available under
/net: if machine
eendracht has a local disk called
/data1, this can be accessed from other systems as
/net/machinename will give a listing of disks on this machine, but
/net will not contain a listing of all available computers.
Named disks are available onder
Disk names are usually related to the research groups, e.g.
/cosmos* for the cosmology group.
There are some tools to make work with all of those disks somewhat easier:
disks chemto get a list of the
/disks/chem*disks and the machines that serve them, or use e.g.
disks schieto get a list of the disks on workstation schie.
df cosmosto get a report on disk space on all of the disks of the cosmology group.
