June 2020: Monthly Maintenance Downtime (6/30)

Date of downtime: Tuesday, June 30, 2020 

Approximate time of outage: 7am-5pm

Resources affected by downtime:

UB-HPC cluster (general-compute, debug, viz, largemem, and gpu  partitions) 

Industry cluster (compute, scavenger partitions)

Faculty cluster (all partitions)

Portals: WebMO, OnDemand

What will be done:  

  • Operating system updates on front end servers and OnDemand
  • Reboots of all cluster nodes and front end servers
  • See this page for modules being deprecated
  • IMPORTANT: The general-compute partition in the UB-HPC (Academic) cluster will now also include all nodes from the largemem, gpu, cascade, and skylake partitions.  These 4 partitions will be removed.  The debug and viz partitions will remain the same.  Please see this article for DETAILED INFORMATION

Jobs submitted to the debug and general-compute partitions will be held in queue during the maintenance downtime and will run after the updates are complete.  Any jobs submitted to the largemem, gpu, cascade, and skylake partitions will need to be re-submitted to the general-compute partition.
