Monthly maintenance Oct 3, 2022 7am-11am

Regular monthly maintenance will take place Monday Oct. 3rd, 2022 7-11am

NOTICES

  • GPU_TEST and REMOTEVIZ PARTITIONS
    Due to failed nodes, the gpu_test partition is down to 2 nodes at the moment. We are working with the vendor to revive these nodes, but no ETA at this time. We are also investigating the root cause for multiple failures.

    • We had already planned to modify the QoS (job limitations) on the gpu_test partition due to misuse of the partition, but the failures forced us to implement this yesterday.  
      Going forward, gpu_test is limited to 1 job per user. That job is limited to a maximum 16 cores and 90GB memory.
    • Please note: gpu_test should not be used to avoid the GPU queues and scheduling. See Running Jobs (https://docs.rc.fas.harvard.edu/kb/running-jobs/#Slurm_partitions) for a list of available partitions, including the gpu partition(s)
    •  The remoteviz node/partition is also down for the same reason. The remoteviz partition is only one node, QoS remains the same.

NETWORK MAINTENANCE 10/4

  • Please be aware that network maintenance on the fibre links at MGHPCC/Holyoke will take place the evening of Tuesday Oct 4th, 2022 7-9PM
    Any interruption should be very brief. However, as always the possibility does exist for knock-on issues.
    We will post any updates here and FASRC staff will be monitoring for any related issues.
