    99 * DON'T store large files in your home or project directory unless you need them in multiple experiment instances.
    1010   * DO store these files locally on a node, e.g., in {{{/tmp}}} folder. If you need more disk space you can mount more by doing
    11      {{{ sudo /usr/local/etc/emulab/mkextrafs.pl /mnt
     11     {{{sudo /usr/local/etc/emulab/mkextrafs.pl /mnt

    13 sudo chown $user /mnt/local }}}

    1515Traffic from experimental nodes to/from your home directory also travels over the control network (read more about this in the next section). To minimize this load please refrain from performing large (> 500 MB) or frequent (< 10 s) reads/writes that involve your experimental nodes and your home directory, unless absolutely necessary. If you need to log something, use a local directory on an experimental node, such as /tmp, and transfer the logs to your home directory before you swap out to save them.
