System Status

upGravity upP7 upViz upBGQ upHPSS

Tue 16 Aug 2016 21:55:20 Cooling restored, filesystem up and OK, bringing up clusters. GPC should be available to users by 11PM (perhaps as early as 1030)

Tue 16 Aug 2016 20:46:37 Water service has been restored to building. Restarting cooling system.

Tue 16 Aug 2016 19:52:32 SciNet-related maintenance and modifications have been completed successfully. Work on the building water valve is expected to be done on time (by 9PM). Once water service is restored we need to restore cooling, power-up filesystems and then restart the clusters. Unlikely that any systems are available to users before 11PM and it will take longer to get everything online. Check here for updates

Tue 16 Aug 2016 07:07:32 Shutdown has started

Scheduled full-day maintenance shutdown begins:

7AM, Tuesday, 16 Aug

Several projects (adding new 208V circuits for storage, cooling tower maintenance etc) are being carried out on same day as the landlord needs to shutdown the main building water supply (and therefore our cooling system as well) for repairs.

Expect to start bringing systems up about 10PM depending on when the water work is done. Check here for further updates during the day

For now, you can directly log into viz01 to try it out. We would value users' feedback and request for suitable software, help with visualization projects etc.
  • Nov 16: ARC being decommissioned. During a transition period, the ARC head node and two compute nodes will be kept up. Users are encouraged to start using Gravity instead.
  • Nov 12, GPC: The number of GPC devel nodes has been doubled from 4 to 8, and the new ones can be accessed using gpc0[5-8].
