Status Status Notes
Aug 04 2017, 02:01PM
(16 days ago)

Cluster has been recovered after the power outage.

Now that Graham is fully operational, Kraken will be completely decommissioned at 3pm Friday August 11. Jobs will continue to run normally until that time, but after that time any queued or running jobs will be lost.

(17 days ago)

There is a power failure at UWO. All running jobs were killed. Storage for some /work and /home users are currently still available. If power isn’t restored in ~ 30min they will also have to be shutdown.

All of kraken’s nodes based at Guelph (all the nodes named “nar#”) will be decommissioned as if this Friday, April 29. Our apologies for the short notice.

(4 months ago)

Most of the cluster nodes affected by the power outage have been recovered, we are still working on a few remaining.

(4 months ago)

A brief power outage due to an electrical storm has forced goblin, dusky and parts of kraken offline. We are working to restore service now.
