PDSF downtime 7/13/11, 8am-8pm

July 6, 2011 by Eric Hjort

In conjunction with maintenance on many NERSC systems PDSF will be down on July 13 from 8am-8pm Pacific Daylight Time.  During the maintenance there will be no access to PDSF at all.  A number of issues will be addressed including the upgrade of /common, GPFS and kernel upgrades, and work on some of the PDSF hardware.

As usual we will set the io resource limits to zero 12 hours before the maintenance so that new jobs using them will not start.  Running jobs will be allowed to continue and any jobs still running when the maintenance starts will be terminated.  When the maintenance is done the io limits will be reset to their usual values.
