Date: Thursday, October 15, 2020

The Monthly NUG Meeting is a regular opportunity for our users to show off what they've done, for NERSC to get feedback from users, and for users to exchange ideas.
For a more detailed agenda please see this document.
- Win-of-the-month: open discussion for attendees to tell of some success you've had - eg getting a paper accepted, solving a problem, or achieving something innovative or high impact using NERSC
- Today-I-learned: open discussion for attendees to point out something that surprised them, or that might be valuable to other users to know
- Announcements and CFPs: upcoming conferences, workshops, or other events
- Topic-of-the-day: Today's topic is "The cscratch1 crash". Cori had a major outage during the last two weeks. We're still investigating the root cause but the trigger conditions appear to relate to files with a very large stripe count. We'll give an overview of the crash, the conditions that we think triggered it and the impacts users might be seeing. We'll also have some Q&A with NERSC's Doug Jacobsen (Computational Systems Group), Glenn Lockwood (Storage Systems Group) and Lisa Gerhardt and Alberto Chiusole (Data and Analytics Services).
We're still investigating the root cause, so a deeper analysis will be a topic for a future meeting. But we can discuss what we know so far, tips for working around impacts you experience as a result, and how we debug this kind of issue.
- Coming up: Nominations and requests for future topics
- Last month's numbers: NERSC center metrics and info for the most recent month
