Dear Franklin and Hopper users, In conjunction with the NERSC systems Outages next week (for NERSC Global File Systems maintenance) announced earlier today (see details at: http://www.nersc.gov/REST/announcements/message_text.php?id=2070), Franklin and Hopper will have scheduled hardware and software maintenances. 1) Franklin maintenance is scheduled on next Thursday, July 14, from 8am to 1pm Pacific time. Hopper maintenance is scheduled on next Wed, July 13, from 8am to 1pm Pacific time. Please plan your work accordingly and check the NERSC Message of the Day (MOTD) for status update: http://www.nersc.gov/live-status/motd/ 2) The following new software versions are available now (as non-default version) on Franklin: -- xt-mpich2/5.3.0 and xt-shmem/5.3.0 -- cce/7.4.0 The following new software versions are available now (as non-default version) on Hopper: -- pgi/11.3.0 -- perftools/5.2.0 -- xt-mpich2/5.3.0 and xt-shmem/5.3.0 -- cce/7.4.0 FYI, Issuing the command "module help module_name/version" (e.g., "module help cce/7.4.0") will display some useful software release information. If there are no problems reported, the above new software versions will be set to default during the scheduled system maintenance periods. 3) /project directory will not be available on Franklin from 8am Wed July 13 to 1pm Thur July 14 (over 24 hrs). /project and /global/scratch directories will not be available on Hopper from 8am to 1pm on Wed July 13. User jobs that need to use the /project and/or /global/scratch file system should add a line in their batch job scripts to indicate this requirement: #PBS -l gres=project:1 or #PBS -l gres=gscratch:1 or #PBS -l gres=project:1%gscratch:1 To add this odirective to a queued job (not in "running" state), a command similar to the following can be used: % qalter -l gres=project:1 my_jobid Jobs that do not specify any "gres" value will have the default setting of gres value being 0 for both /project and /global/scratch. This is appropriate for batch jobs that do not reference these file systems. In general, it is recommended to include the "gres" directive in your batch script to allow your jobs to survive during future scheduled file system outages.
