Attending: Eric Hiroshi Patrick Mike Lisa Iwona Larry
Utilization: Cluster has not been completely full due to ALICE not running much. There will be an ALICE troubleshooting session later in the week.
Outages: eliza1 has recovered - Dell rewrote headers on all 45 drives. eliza2 firmware was upgraded as well. eliza8 was fixed yesterday.
Upcoming downtimes: Bestman to be restarted 2/21/12 at 9am.
Procurements: ALICE is buying more compute power. Groups can test using /project for storage and consider buying storage to put there instead of on PDSF.
SL4: We still hope to retire it 3/1.
SL6: Will need to reboot rack 9 and will have to coordinate that w/STAR. We should be able to roll out SL6 on the whole cluster pretty soon.
Priorities: Patrick mentioned a colleague having problems getting jobs to run. A discussion of how SGE schedules within a project followed. It looks like this user is specifying 6 elizaio's and that is probably what it hurting his throughput.
