      Description

      It is well known that building, setting up a stack, and interactive devel work with those operations on NFS has performance issues. Hence the official shared stack on lsstdev uses /ssd .

      However, a shared stack on NFS is useful and adequate for one important use case –
      users need a stack that can be used for small productions on the local condor pool currently available on lsstdev. For this use case multiple "source"/"setups" on a node/against the file system can be avoidable by using a script to directly declare the environment. run_orca /ctrl_orca supports this feature.

      While GPFS is coming soon, there is expected to be a transition period of 2-3 months and so the NFS file system and a stack on it can serve users for an interim period. If building a shared stack on NFS is not a heavy labor, we think it is worth the effort for this interim period, and as such make this request for a shared stack on NFS.
