Hopper scheduled maintenance next Tues (May 8) and new software available

May 1, 2012

1) In conjunction with the NERSC Center Wide Outage for global file systems maintenance, there will be a scheduled hardware and software maintenance for Hopper next Tuesday, May 8, from 8 am to 6 pm Pacific time.   Please plan your work accordingly and check the NERSC Message of the Day (MOTD) for status update:

2) The following new software versions are available now (as non-default) on Hopper:
-- pathscale/
-- intel/
-- pgi/12.2.0
-- cce/8.0.3
-- xt-libsci/11.0.06
-- acml/5.1.0
-- perftools/5.3.1
-- papi/4.3.0
-- jdk/1.7.0_03

Many of the above software depend on the xt-asyncpe/5.08 instead of the default loaded xt-asyncpe/5.07 module.   Please issue the following commands before testing the new software versions:
% module swap xt-asyncpe xt-asyncpe/5.08

FYI, Issuing the command "module help module_name/version" (e.g., "module help pgi/12.2.0") will display some useful software release information.

More information about the above new software versions can be found in the following CrayDoc Release Announcements:

If there are no problems reported, the above list of new software versions (along with the new xt-asyncpe/5.08) will be set to default on 5/8 at the scheduled system maintenance.  The special command of "module swap xt-asyncpe ..." above will not be needed after we set the new defaults next week.

If there are any questions or comments, please contact "consult at nersc dot gov".
