PDSF Users Meeting 9/28/10
Attending: Eric and Jay from PDSF and users Ke Han, Joanna, Marjorie, Thomas, Shane.
Cluster status: Cluster has been pretty full last few weeks, mostly STAR and ALICE. There are a lot of astrogfs jobs pending but they have no share so they don't run.
Outages: NERSC-wide outage recently due to a security problem. PDSF outage this morning - logins were hanging. The memory problem was fixed but another kernel patch is needed.
Upcoming downtimes: Nothing scheduled but will do a rolling upgrade of the new patch. /project downtime tomorrow.
New hardware: End of fiscal year orders are done. Everything should be online in the next couple weeks.
SL302 retirement: Scheduled for the end of October.
- Marjorie reports that she is working with the ATLAS grid people.
- Jeff reports a user had a slow job - probably due to some recent GPFS problems.
- Thomas asked about when /eliza11 would be retire. It (and /eliza12 and /eliza13) will be retired after the new storage is online.
