For a general description of the different file systems available on PDSF please see Eliza File Systems and Other File Systems.  Below is a summary of how ALICE uses the various systems:


ALICE uses /common to build the software that supports its grid-based automated production work.  This software includes AliRoot, Geant, AliEn, and XRootD.

/eliza6, /eliza8, /eliza17

ALICE has space on 3 elizas:  16TB on /eliza6, 6TB on /eliza8 and 11TB on /eliza17.  The space on all three is used primarily for user analyses.


ALICE has a quota of 4TB on /project/projectdirs/alice and it is used for user analyses as well as hosting some webpages.
