Edison Down for About One Month Starting June 24

June 4, 2013 by Francesca Verdier | 0 Comments

The Edison Phase II system arrives at NERSC in June, and will boost the Phase I core count by more than a factor of 10. In order to integrate the new components and upgrade existing ones, the entire Edison system will be unavailable for about one month beginning June 24. This includes the login nodes and the scratch file system. Please plan your work accordingly.

While we do not expect to have to delete data on the scratch file system during the conversion, we strongly recommend that you save data you want to preserve to HPSS or elsewhere to guard against unforeseen developments. There is no guarantee your data will be available when Edison returns.

Further details of the Phase II system will be announced later.

Users May Now Clear Their Own Login Failures

May 16, 2013 by Francesca Verdier | 0 Comments

Users may now clear their own login failures simply by logging in to the NIM website (https://nim.nersc.gov). No further steps are necessary; that is, the simple act of logging in to NIM will clear your login failures on all NERSC compute systems. NIM will then provide a display of the number of login failures that were cleared on each compute system that was affected at the top of the NIM landing page.

2014 INCITE Call for Proposals - Due June 28

April 30, 2013 by Francesca Verdier | 0 Comments

The 2014 INCITE Call for Proposals is now open. Open to researchers from academia, government labs, and industry, the INCITE Program is the major means by which the scientific community gains access to the Leadership Computing Facilities' resources. INCITE is currently soliciting proposals for research on the 27-petaflops Cray XK7 “Titan” and the 10-petaflops IBM Blue Gene/Q “Mira” beginning CY2014.  Projects for CY2014 are expected to range in size from tens to hundreds of millions of core-hours.
