Title: The Fermilab computing farms in 1999

Abstract

The farms in 1999 changed in two major ways. First, PC's running Linux continued to expand and this allowed for the reduction of the SGI and IBM components of the farms. Second, the first large farms for CDF and D0 Run II were purchased and installed in 1999. Simultaneously, a large increment for non-Run II computing was made. The farms continue to provide large CPU resources for those experiments and calculations which benefit from this type of computing (large CPU, low I/O, dedicated resources). Farms usage will continue to increase given the demands of the user community (reflecting the scientific program) and the preparation for and beginning of Run II.
