No direct login to Mirage3 and Mirage4 nodes after February 1, 2012

February 6, 2012

Starting Thursday, February 2, Mirage nodes 3 and 4 will no longer be available for interactive use. The nodes will be placed under control of the LSF scheduler, to test and configure data analysis and visualization workflows in preparation for the forthcoming Yellowstone environment at NWSC.

The remaining Mirage nodes (0, 1, 2, and 5) will continue to be available for interactive use. These four interactive nodes all have 128 GB to maximize the memory available to Mirage users. CISL is using the Mirage nodes with smaller memory (64 GB) for LSF testing. Please arrange your workflow accordingly.

Contact the Consulting Services Group via cislhelp@ucar.edu if you have comments or questions about this change, or if you are interested in access to the Mirage batch nodes.
