January 5, 2015 by Francesca Verdier

Allocation Year 2014 (AY14) ends at 23:59:59 on Monday, January 12, 2015. AY15 runs from Tuesday, January 13, 2015 through Monday, January 11, 2016.

To keep in mind:

  • Scheduled System Downtimes: Edison will be down from 07:30 Tuesday January 13 until 07:30 Friday January 16 for memory upgrades. All other systems will be available during the allocation year rollover.
  • Charging Across the AY Boundary: All batch jobs will continue running during the rollover. Time accrued before midnight will be charged to AY14 repos; time accrued after midnight will be charged to AY15 repos.
  • Hopper Queue Charge Factors Increase: The queue charge for regular queues will be reset from 0.8 to 1. It had been reduced to 0.8 in August 2014 in order to balance the workload between Edison and Hopper.
  • Edison and Hopper Premium Queues Temporarily Disabled: The premium batch queues on Edison and Hopper will be stopped at 08:00, Monday, January 5, and will be restarted at 08:00, Tuesday, January 13.  During this time, no premium jobs will start, and jobs submitted to the premium queues will be rejected.
