Upcoming Filesystem Outages: Eagle and Grand

Eagle and Grand filesystems will undergo firmware upgrades in the next two weeks.

  • Eagle will be unavailable from September 19-26
  • Grand will be unavailable from September 26-October 3

Filesystems on ThetaGPU, Cooley, Polaris, and DTNs (data transfer nodes) will be remounted once the upgrade work is complete. Filesystems on Theta, however, will not be remounted until the planned maintenance scheduled for the following Monday.

Please be sure to specify the appropriate file system(s) name(s) in the qsub command while submitting jobs. If the "filesystems" attribute is not specified, then the job will be tagged as requesting all filesystems and will be held unnecessarily.
