nfs was unavailable on SC clusters for about 5 minutes on 5.9.2019

On 5.9.2019 we had an unplanned reboot of our nfs server for the sc clusters galaxy, sirius and polaris from about 13:10-13:15. Please check your jobs and retransmit if necessary. We are sorry for any inconveniences.

Short nfs failure on 3.9.2019

We have seen the /nfs mount beeing unavailable on the SC cluster nodes on Galaxy, Sirius and Polaris on 3.9.2019 from about 17:20 until 17:45. You probably want to check your jobs running during this.

Maybe the problem was caused due to high metadata load on the nfs directory. We are sorry for any inconveniences.

Minor Maintenance on SC clusters on 27.+28.8.2019

We neet to update the software on our sc cluster galaxy, sirius and polaris and update slurm. For this we are planning a minor maintenance on 27th and 28th august.

Hadoop: Users on the shared hadoop partition will notice short service breaks and running jobs could get interrupted.

Slurm: We are expecting the slurm partition to stay functional with only short interruptions of the availability of slurm commands like squeue or sbatch, but slurm jobs should keep running.

Galaxy101 gets restarted.

2019-08-22: Slurm nodes are updating packages when they are idle.
2019-08-27: Hadoop Nodes and Masters are updated.
2019-08-28: Galaxy101 is updated, slurm version is updated, a rest of slurm nodes is waiting for their update timeslot in normal operation.
