Recent Announcements:

The first wave of AMD20 (210 CPU nodes and 9 GPU nodes) is now available for testing in the amd20-test partition.  Use: #SBATCH -q amd20-test #SBATCH -p amd20-test to request the test partition and QOS. The dev-amd20 and dev-amd20-v100 nodes are available from other development nodes. There is no limit on cores you can use, but a 24 hour limit on CPU time. Systems may need to be restarted at any time as we complete testing and address any issues that may arise.…
9-2-20 at 12am we will be taking the globus google drive server offline to maintenance.  We will be attempting to correct an issue that is causing only the My Drive space to be available.  The maintenance is expected to last up to 4 hours.  When the server is back online users may need to remove their old collections and remap a new collection.
Update 08/13/20 1:00PM: A patch has been applied and scheduler functionality has returned to normal      We are currently encountering some performance issues with the job scheduler following updates during the maintenance. This is causing jobs not to schedule properly as well as delays in job execution. We are working to resolve this with our vendor.
