We will have rolling reboots of all three clusters, starting from Tuesday, September 4, 2018. The rolling reboots won't affect any running jobs, but users may experience longer queue wait time than usual on all three clusters. Highlights of the rolling reboots activities include:

  • Owens, Ruby, and Oakley clusters will have OS kernel and BIOS updates to address the latest Intel processor security vulnerabilities. As part of these updates, it is necessary to update the OS distribution on Ruby and Oakley from Red Hat version 6.9 to 6.10. These changes will be applied via rolling reboots of compute nodes.
  • Owens and Ruby will also have a software refresh at this time. For the most updated information on the software refresh, please see this link.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please contact oschelp@osc.edu if you have any questions.
