As part of the HPC Model Change hardware that was purchased as part of the Neon HPC system will be retired on January 6, 2021 during regularly scheduled HPC Maintenance.
The 2020.2 software stack has been released on Argon. This stack supplements the original set of modules. Some of the modules are newer versions of software that will be loaded in preference to modules from the original set.
All HPC compute nodes are purchased with a five year warranty. Compute nodes will be allowed to run for up to 7 years within the following parameters.
Argon is currently unavailable due to SGE/scheduling issues. We are investigating the problem, and will update the community as soon as service is restored.
At approx 11AM one of the data centers hosting Argon lost power. At this time a portion of Argon is offline and we are working to restore service.
UPDATE: 12:06PM Due to the continued outage, we have not returned impacted systems to service.
