Alternatively, if disk space is a concern, how about creating an NFS share of, 
say, 150Gbytes, containing one subdirectory per server, and then mount each 
subdirectory as /tmp on the respective machine?

That avoids allocating 75Gbytes per server, but also keeps each machine's view 
separate from the others.
