Allocation Adjustment Schedule for 2016

April 18, 2016 by Rebecca Hartman-Baker

It is NERSC policy that MPP (computational) repositories that haven't used significant amounts of time are adjusted at certain times of the year by transferring a portion of the unused balance to the corresponding DOE Office reserve. In past years this has been done on a quarterly basis, but because of a few changes such as the new scavenger queues this year, we've changed the schedule. The key dates and adjustments follow:

On June 1:

  • For repos using < 20%, 25% of unused balance will be removed.
  • For repos using < 5%, 50% of the unused balance will be removed.

On September 1:

  • For repos using < 30%, 25% of unused balance will be removed.
  • For repos using < 10%, 50% of unused balance will be removed.

On December 1:

  • For repos with no usage, repo will be closed and full balance will be removed.
