1) There will be a scheduled hardware and software maintenance for Franklin next Wednesday, June 15, from 8am to 8pm Pacific time. Please plan your work accordingly and check the NERSC Message of the Day (MOTD) for status update:

2) The following new software versions are available now (as non-default version) on Franklin:
-- pgi/11.3.0
-- perftools/5.2.0 (which includes xt-craypat and apprentice2)

FYI, Issuing the command "module help module_name/version" (e.g., "module help pgi/11.3.0") will display some useful software release information.

If there are no problems reported, the above two new software versions will be set to default on 6/15 at the scheduled system maintenance.

3) Following the maintenance, the per-process CPU limit on Freedom (the external login node of Franklin) will be set to 24 hours (current limit: unlimited).  Note: the per-process CPU limit on the internal login nodes of Franklin is 1 hr (remain unchanged).
