Performance on Phoenix project & scratch storage has returned to normal. PACE continues to investigate the root cause of last week’s slowness, and we would like to thank those researchers we have contacted with questions about your workflows. Please contact us at with any questions.

Summary: Researchers may experience slow performance on Phoenix project & scratch storage.

Details: Over the past three days, Phoenix has experienced intermittent slowness on the Lustre filesystem hosting project & scratch storage due to heavy utilization. PACE is investigating the source of the heavy load on the storage system.

Impact: Any jobs or commands that read or write on project or scratch storage may run more slowly than normal.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate. Please contact us at with any questions.
