Recent Announcements:

We will be upgrading the ICER directory services infrastructure on Monday, 25 October, 2021.  Although no user impact is expected, please submit a problem report or reach out on the ICER Help Desk channel you experience any login issues.…
Beginning on Monday, October 25th, how job IDs are represented on the HPCC's SLURM scheduler will change. This change will cause new job IDs to jump significantly in value. Currently queued or running job IDs will not change. This configuration change is one step towards implementing additional scheduler features in the future. If you have any questions about this change, please contact us at 
The HPCC scratch system gs18 (/mnt/scratch ; /mnt/gs18) is nearly full (98%). We're working to move heavy users to alternative scratch spaces, but users may experience "Out of space on device" if other users write a significant amount of data to the HPCC. Users are asked to remove any data from scratch that they no longer need and consider using the Lustre scratch system ls15 in the interim.
