Brief interruption of batch services on 4/17

On April 17th 2013, at roughly 2PM, we will be rebooting the batch server on the Oakley cluster. Running jobs will not be affected, but there will be a brief disruption in scheduling, as well as the functionality of programs that communicate with the batch server (such as qsub or qstat) during the duration of the reboot.

This disruption is expected to be very short, and will be transparent to users unless you attempt to submit a job or view the queue during the outage. No other service disruptions are anticipated.
