GPFS hang Issue on 09/08/2016


On Thursday, Sept 8 starting at 19:37, we had some bad interaction that appears to have been caused by the backup client, and the GPFS servers. This resulted in a GPFS hang that propagated I/O errors up to user applications. Some jobs were killed unexpectedly with the error message "Stale file handle". The problems ended around 20:00.

We really apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact OSC Help if you have any questions.
