5/6/16: GPFS offline unexpectedly

This issue has been resolved

The GPFS system including /gpfs/scratch went offline unexpectedly around 3:30pm today.  Our SAN administrator is working with IBM to diagnose and fix the issue.  We apologize for the inconvenience this will surely cause with running jobs.

As a reminder, all scratch spaces on CCR servers are considered volatile and are not backed up.  They are not intended for permanent storage of data which is why there is a 3 week lifespan on /gpfs/scratch.  Anything older than 21 days is automatically deleted nightly.  See our scratch policies here for more info
