Our next maintenance downtime for the BRC HPC Supercluster is scheduled for July 24th and 25th. It will be a two day downtime starting from 8:00 am on Tuesday till 5:00 pm on Wednesday.
We need to do some long pending maintenance tasks and improvements to the scratch filesystem which will help us manage it better.
All access to cluster login nodes, data transfer node, scheduler queues and data on all the cluster filesystems will be blocked. This downtime impacts all the three clusters, Savio, Cortex & Vector in the supercluster infrastructure. After the downtime, access will be restored as before.
We have scheduler reservations put in place such that there will not be any jobs running after 8:00 am on July 24th. So if you are submitting jobs to any cluster queues before the downtime please make sure you request proper wallclock time such that they finish running before 8:00 am on 24th or else your jobs will wait in the queue until after the downtime.
