Request to move $SCRATCH2 data and I/O testing Thursday (tomorrow) night

June 8, 2011 by Helen He

We will me doing some dedicated I/O testing on the $SCRATCH2 file system for a few hours late on Thursday (tomorrow, June 9) night from 10pm-1am Pacific Time.  This is to test a software patch intended to improve I/O performance on Hopper.  We'd like to do the testing on as clean a file system as possible and would like to request your help and ask you to move data from $SCRATCH2 to $SCRATCH and launch jobs from $SCRATCH until further notice.

Detailed instructions on how to move data and the list of largest users on $SCRATCH2 could be found at:
