The staff from the data center where Boqueron is hosted at will be carrying out some electrical work next week that will impact Boqueron. To cooperate with the efforts and to protect as many jobs as possible from getting spontaneously killed, we have opened a maintenance window starting at 7:30am Monday January 30th and ending at 12:00pm Tuesday January 31st. Any newly submitted jobs that cannot complete before the maintenance window begins will be held in the queue until the window ends.
During this window, the Boqueron login node will continue to operate, and the file systems /home and /work should continue to be available, so you should be able to access your files during this time. The worker nodes will be powered down, however.
Jobs that are currently running will be allowed to continue to run, but if any remain running at the time of the maintenance window, they will unfortunately be killed.
We realize this announcement comes a bit short notice, but please understand that HPCf staff was notified of this electrical work yesterday afternoon.
We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience from this maintenance window, and we thank you for your cooperation. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
