Currently ssh access to worker nodes on the verification cluster (lsst-verify-worker*) is prohibited. I would like to change this policy to allow users of the verification cluster to ssh to worker nodes. It is very useful to be able to inspect running processes in situ to determine how multiple jobs are being packed onto the nodes.
This might be dangerous in scenarios where the users are not expected to behave themselves, but we have the luxury of having a relatively small and considerate user base for this specific resource. For these reasons, it seems relatively safe to allow this access.
