Our August 2019 maintenance ( ) is complete one day ahead of schedule!  We have brought compute nodes online and released previously submitted jobs.  Login nodes are accessible and your data are available.

As usual, there are a small number straggling nodes we will address over the coming days.

  • (Complete) Network connections to PACE-RTR will be upgraded. Connectivity in and out of the Rich Data Center will be disrupted on Friday morning. VAPOR network will not be affected.
  • (Complete) Additional space will be configured for license server.
  • (Complete) OS and application patches will be applied to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 servers, effectively upgrading to RHEL 7.6.
  • (Complete) OS and application patches will be applied to testflight nodes, to begin testing new versions of kernel and libraries.
  • (Complete) PACE management scripts and utilities will be upgraded, to improve reliability and performance.
  • (Complete) The submit filter for jobs on the RHEL 7 clusters will be modified to allow proper formatting of commands. This filter is not needed on RHEL 6 clusters.
  • (Complete) Upgrade DNS appliances; no downtime is expected due to redundant configuration.
