Bluefire login nodes outage CANCELLED for May 15

May 16, 2012

Bluefire login nodes outage for May 15 has been cancelled.

Bluefire login nodes may not be accessible between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. this coming Tuesday, May 15 while system administrators try to tune some network parameters as part of solving the recent GPFS performance problems. We are working closely with IBM on the exact settings for the network configuration, and we may have to postpone this change.

We apologize for the inconvenience and uncertainty created due to this change.

We will make every effort to minimize both. Please note that Bluefire batch nodes will continue running jobs throughout the outage.
