Please review your usage of /fs/ess

Recent improvements to a routine OSC accounting process resulted in larger adjustments to file counts and quota usages than anticipated for some accounts. The updated metrics are more accurate but some users may now have less free space than expected. Please review your usage closely and, if necessary, remove unneeded data or request a quota expansion via OSCHelp to avoid exhausting your available space.

System Downtime June 30, 2021

A downtime for all OSC HPC systems is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday, June 30, 2021. The downtime will affect the Pitzer and Owens Clusters, web portals, state-wide licenses, and HPC file servers. Login services will not be available during this time. Client portal (my.osc.edu) will be accessible. In preparation for the downtime, jobs that cannot be completed before 7 a.m., June 30, 2021 will not start. Jobs that are not started on clusters will remain until after the downtime and then will be queued to start once the system is returned to production status.

Problems with GPFS filesystem

We are experiencing some problems with GPFS filesystems this morning (Thursday, June 10). OnDemand is not working. It may also cause unexpected job failures. We are working hard to fix this issue, and will provide more updates once we know more.
