Status and Service Updates

Globus endpoint ucb#brc unreachable: Wed, 12/7

Globus endpoint ucb#brc has been unreachable for the past few days due to a network issue. Our team is working on bringing services back and will update you once it is back in production. As a backup option for data transfer, you could use the SCP/SFTP/rsync command line tools or FileZilla. See the email sent to Savio users for further information about these options.

No office hours on Wed, 11/23 or Thurs, 11/24

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, we will not be holding office hours on Wed, 11/23 or Thurs, 11/24. Thursday and Friday are university holidays so we will be limited in our responses until we resume service on Monday, 11/28.

Savio Power Outage Status: Wed, 11/16

Savio partially lost power twice within the last week due to excess power consumption by some of the Savio4 nodes. Thus as a precautionary measure, we have intentionally kept some nodes offline to keep power consumption under control: savio4_htc (28 nodes), savio2_htc (9 nodes), savio2_gpu (9) and savio (36 nodes). This may affect job scheduling in these partitions. Open OnDemand and Globus are back to normal. Please refer to the “Savio Power Outage Status” email sent on 11/16 for more details.
