Use Policy

The Linux Lab Use Policy is a supplement to the "Policies for Responsible Computing at Walla Walla University" and should be read first. In the event of a conflicts between the Responsible Computing Policy and this policy, the former prevails. This policy addresses a few issues specific to Linux computer usage.

Unattended Computers

Computers are primarily intended for interactive use. As stated in the Responsible Computing guide, "Any workstation left unattended for more than fifteen minutes may be appropriated by another user." Users leaving a terminal unattended for more than fifteen minutes will be logged out at another user's request.

Long Running Processes

If you have a process that needs to run for an extended period of time, you need to start it as a background job and set it's "nice" level to at least 10. Processes found to be hogging computer resources may be "niced" for you, or they may be killed.
