Cluster saw.sharcnet.ca

Due to scheduled power outages at multiple SHARCNET institutions, several clusters (angel, copper, guppy, mako, mosaic, orca, redfin and saw) as well as global /work are currently unavailable and will return to service no later than 1 pm. Monday May 2.
We will use this outage to perform some much needed maintenance on a number of critical systems.

Other clusters will remain up but any jobs that require access to /work will crash. Users should only submit jobs requiring access to /home and /scratch

The new login server for the saw cluster has been installed, and is online.

The cluster is now fully operational.

(about 1 month ago)

The new login server for the saw cluster has arrived and is being configured. We will be shutting down the old login server tomorrow morning at 9am and switching over to the new one at that time.

The outage will affect only the login server, and is expected to last no longer than five minutes. No running or queued jobs will be affected by this outage.

This will correct the stability issues of our current login server.
