Dear ASPIRE 1 Users,
The NSCC system will be shut down on 15 December 2017 (Friday) from 3pm as a result of a planned power outage to our building. When power is restored, we expect to bring our HPC services back online on 19 December 2017 (Tuesday) at 12 noon.
Please take note of the important timelines below that will impact your work:
- 15 December 2017 (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 2017 (Tuesday), 12pm: the system will be brought online and released to users.
Please also note that we will be upgrading PBS to the latest version which will fix various performance issues and bugs. As a result of this upgrade, all jobs in the queue which ever are not completed by 15 Dec 2017, 3pm will be removed from the queue. Please resubmit your jobs which were previously held in queue after ASPIRE 1 is back online on 19 December 2017 at 12 Noon.
Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions or issues. Please note that the response may be delayed as the team will be working on maintenance activities.
