sshfs to access volumes

I thought I'd pass along this method to access a volume you have attached
to the master node (and shared with all slave nodes) from any machine. To
me this was easier than having the master node do the setup and collecting
of results. I prefer to keep the master as a pure submit host.

I am using ubuntu 10.04.

1. Iinstall sshfs

     % sudo apt-get install sshfs
     % modprobe fuse

2. Run sshfs:

   % mkdir <mount_point>
   % sshfs -o ssh_command="ssh -i /full/path/to/your/private/RSA/key"
<user>_at_<aws IP addresss>:/<volume> <mount_point>

    % mkdir ./results
    % sshfs -o ssh_command="ssh i $PWD/id_rsa.key" ./results

To unmount, do:
    % fusermont -u <mount_point>
