Jobs requesting Lustre are rejected by qsub

Friday, August 15, 2014 - 11:30pm

On both production clusters, we have begun rejecting jobs that request the use of Lustre or $PFSDIR in order to reduce job failures caused by the triggering of a bug that crashes the filesystem. If you have a GPFS allocation, you may if appropriate want to move your data there in order to maintain productivity while the Lustre service is in a degraded state.
