Jobs Accidentally Killed

Filed under: tech support — rlara3 @ 10:52 pm

Dear users,

At least 1,600 queued and running jobs were accidentally killed last week by a member of the PACE-team, who was trying to clear out their own jobs. PACE-team accounts have elevated rights to certain commands, and the person who deleted the jobs did not realize that the command they were using would apply to more then just their own jobs.

If you have access to the iw-shared-6 queue, and were running jobs and/or had jobs queued earlier this week, this accident has likely impacted you.

Our deepest apologies for the unexpected and early job-terminations. We are re-evaluating our need to grant elevated permissions to our regular accounts, in order to prevent this from happening again

Thank you,
PACE team
