  What is a "login node"? Is it a node you log in to compile code? So its purpose is pretty much only to compile code? What kind of load does it have? If people just stay logged into all the time then they may not be contributing any load.

  BTW: PETSc does a parallel compile (which is why it is so fast) did the sysadmin complain ?
