Summer Cluster Schedule

Posted on Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at 8:38 am

HPC Cluster Users:

Our new Research Computing server room has been completed, so we are planning to migrate several of our clusters to this location over the course of the summer. This will require an extended outage for each cluster as it is moved. Based on our current schedule, the Viper cluster will be unavailable beginning on Wednesday, July 24th at 8am. Limited access (most likely with a reduced number of computing cores) will be restored by Friday, July 26th at 5pm. Viper will be fully available by Monday, July 29th at 8am. Please plan your work accordingly.

Based on our experiences with this move, the migration of the MEES cluster will be performed shortly after Viper is back online. As a part of this move, the MEES cluster will be merged with the Viper cluster, so that they can use common scheduling queues and common home directories. This should significantly improve the efficiency of our cluster environment. Additional instructions concerning this migration will be provided at a later date.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
