Dear PACE Users,

Our scheduled maintenance has completed ahead of the schedule! All Coda datacenter clusters are ready for research. As usual, we have released all users jobs that were held by the scheduler. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we worked through these maintenance activities.

Our next maintenance period is tentatively scheduled to begin at 6:00AM on Wednesday, 11/03/2021, and it is tentatively scheduled to conclude by 11:59PM on Friday, 11/05/2021.

Here is an update on the tasks performed during this maintenance period.
