PDSF Users Meeting 6/8/10

Attending: Eric and Jay from PDSF and users Andrei and Jeff P.

Cluster status: Utilization has been fairly light for the most part although the cluster is full today.

Outages: There were some gpfs problems causing 32sl44 problems and STAR login problems. Also user sethzenz was causing some problems on the interactives.

Upcoming downtimes: in June/July will have multiple days center-wide outage. We will also need to upgrade gpfs, etc., after the downtime.

New hardware: Jay talked to Dell and we will be able to get the order in the fiscal year.

Other Topics:

- ALICE is using /project but hitting their inode limit and wondered if using /common would be a better idea? Probably not for this purpose.

- There was another discussion about how to get more detailed information from SGE like you can get with Maui. Jay is looking into possibilities.
