*Important* Message for NIH Biowulf Users (Biowulf)Date: 05 December 2012 09:12:51
From: steven fellini (sfellini@NIH.GOV)
This email is for Biowulf users who have their /data directories on the /gs2 filesystem. If you use the "gpfs" property for your 'qsub' or 'swarm' jobs, this means you. Biowulf staff will have to take the gs2 filesystem OFFLINE to repair filesystem damage incurred last week. This means that when the filesystem is taken offline, any jobs currently accessing that filesystem will be terminated, and that jobs submitted requiring that filesystem will be rejected. The software vendor informs us that it will take anywhere between 8 and 48 hours to repair the filesystem. Jobs accessing or submitting to the /gs2 filesystem will be terminated starting TODAY at 10 am. Email will be sent to biowulf users when /gs2 is again available. We apologize for this disruption to your work, but delaying this repair could have serious consequences for the integrity of data on /gs2.
