January 16 downtime scheduled for Geyser and Caldera

January 11, 2018

The Geyser and Caldera clusters will be unavailable from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. MST on Tuesday, January 16, to allow CISL staff to update hardware and software components.

Users will be unable to log in to Geyser and Caldera during the outage. Reservations will be put in place on batch jobs before the outage begins. After the reservations are activated, jobs that are submitted with specified job times that overlap the reservation period will remain on hold until the systems are restored to service. All processes and running jobs that have not finished when the outage begins will be killed and will need to be resubmitted after the systems are returned to service.

Users will be informed via the CISL Notifier service when the systems are returned to production.
