PACE coverage during winter break

Posted by on Tuesday, 20 December, 2011

Greetings all, and happy holidays!

As I’m sure you are all acutely aware, campus will be closed next week! This includes us as well.

If you have troubles, please submit tickets as usual – preferably using our pace-support.sh script!  (See http://www.pace.gatech.edu/support.)  We will get to these as soon as things get back to normal in January.

If there is an immediate problem, please call OIT operations at (404) 894-4669 and leave a message.  One of the operators will be checking in occasionally and they have contact information for the PACE team.

Have a good break!

Possible network outage on 12/13

Posted by on Friday, 9 December, 2011
The network team will perform a maintenance next Tuesday (12/13) at 7:30am. This is not expected to affect any systems or running jobs, but there is still a ~20% chance that a network outage can happen, and last for about an hour. The team will be on site, prepared to intervene immediately should that happens.
Please note that a network outage will affect running jobs, so you might like to wait until the maintenance is over to submit large and/or critical jobs. As always, please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
