HPC: planned downtime

2022-08-17: firmware and SLURM upgrade

2022/08/17 08:00-20:00

The HPC cluster including login nodes will be unavailable this day starting at 10am.

For a firmware upgrade on various hardware components, as well as an update of our SLURM batch scheduling system, the HPC cluster will be unavailable at 2022-08-17 starting at 10am for the whole day.

As usual, you do not need to change anything on your running or pending jobs. The scheduler knows about begin of the downtime, and depending on their runtime request (#SBATCH -t …), jobs will either be started (and ended safely) before the downtime, or queued until after it, respectively.
