Subject: ASPIRE 1 Unavailable from 16 to 19 December 2016 due to Building Power Maintenance
Dear ASPIRE 1 Users,
As a result of a planned power outage to our building, the NSCC system will be shut down on 16 December 2016 (Friday) from 3pm. When the power is restored, we expect to bring our HPC services back online on 19 December 2016 (Monday) at 12 noon.
Please take note of the important timelines below that will impact your work:
- 11 December 2016 (Sunday), 3pm: All long queues will stop dispatching jobs. This is to ensure jobs do not get terminated during the shutdown period. Jobs which can complete before the shutdown may still be dispatched manually, subject to the availability of resources.
- 15 December 2016 (Thursday), 3pm: Normal queues will stop dispatching jobs.
- 16 December 2016 (Friday), 3pm: All users will be logged out of the system. All remaining running jobs will be allowed to terminate gracefully before the system shuts down.
- 19 December 2016 (Monday), 12 noon: the system will be brought online and released to users.
Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions or issues.
