Cheyenne batch queues to remain open

August 13, 2019

System monitoring of user batch jobs continues to show a significant reduction in the number of MPT launch errors after last week’s updates. Because of the improvement, CISL will leave all standard batch queues open today and tomorrow rather than pause them during the CESM polar tutorial as planned previously. Casper also will remain fully available to all users throughout the week.

The root cause of the poor Cheyenne system performance has not been determined, and CISL staff and vendor Level-3 support teams continue to work through the remaining issues. Users are still encouraged to resubmit any jobs that previously failed with MPT launch errors and report the status of those jobs to cislhelp@ucar.edu.
