Dear users,

we will do a maintenance of the cluster the 15th of August 2019 the whole day.

The cluster will be totally unavailable during this period, this include accessing your files.

What will be done during this maintenance:

  • replace four hdd’s on master server by two ssd
  • system upgrade (bugfix, security)
  • upgrade Slurm
  • upgrade BeeGFS

You can continue to submit jobs as usual, they will only be postponed to after the maintenance.


Update: as we have a lot of things to do for the maintenance, we have planned an extra day for the maintenance, the 16th of August.
