GLADE scratch retention period being increased

February 25, 2019

CISL will increase the file retention period for the GLADE scratch space from 60 days to 90 days effective Tuesday, February 26. Individual files will be removed from scratch automatically if they have not been accessed – read, copied or modified – for more than 90 days. To check a file's last access time, run the command ls -ul <filename>.

The updated retention policy is expected to ease user issues related to managing their data holdings and improve overall file system utilization.
