OSC Help <OSCHelp@osc.edu> or an individual staff member
Your jobs are causing problems with one of the network file servers. This is usually caused by submitting a large number of jobs that start at the same time and execute in lockstep.
Sent under these circumstances
These emails are sent by a staff member when the high load is traced to your jobs. Often the jobs have to be stopped or deleted.
To turn off the emails
You cannot turn off these emails. Please don’t ignore them because they report a problem that you must correct.
To prevent these problems
See the Knowledge Base article (coming soon) for suggestions on dealing with file system load problems.
For information on the different file systems available at OSC, see Available File Systems.
If you continue to submit jobs that cause these problems, your HPC account may be blocked.
