REMINDER – upcoming quarterly maintenance – 1/19/2011

This entry was posted by on Friday, 14 January, 2011 at

Just a reminder – our quarterly maintenance is coming up on Wednesday, January 19.  Expect all clusters and storage to be offline for the day.  This evening, we will lower the maximum job length to five days and continue to lower this limit daily.

Major items on the list are new firmware upgrades to all the Infiniband network switches and related software that will give us better stability and diagnostic ability into the IB network.  We’ll also be upgrading firmware on the file server network interfaces.

***** IMPORTANT *****

We’ll also be instituting space-reclamation on the scratch storage.  Going forward, the scratch will be cleaned daily, and any file older than 60 days will be removed.  An email notification of removal will be sent one week prior to the file’s removal. Remember, the scratch storage is not intended for long term storage of data sets.  As such, we do not maintain backups of this storage.
