GLADE scratch retention period being increased

September 30, 2019

CISL will increase the file retention period for the GLADE scratch space from 90 days to 120 days effective Tuesday, October 1. Individual files will be removed from scratch automatically if they have not been accessed – read, copied or modified – for more than 120 days. To check a file's last access time, run the command ls -ul <filename>.

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