Summer 2020 HPC Maintenance

Update Thursday, August 13 at 4:00 p.m.: Maintenance is completed and normal operations have resumed. 

Update Thursday, August 13 at 1:00 p.m.: Previously-scheduled electrical work took longer than expected, so Argon's maintenance window has been extended until 5:00 p.m.

Update: The Summer 2020 maintenance window of the Argon HPC system is being extended due to recently scheduled additional electrical work by Facilities Management. 

The Summer 2020 maintenance is scheduled for 8 AM August 12, 2020 - 1 PM August 13, 2020.

This maintenance coincides with a generator test in the ITF Data Center and maintenance electrical work in the LC Data Center. Due to this, the argon system will need to be shut down. The system will be shutdown shortly after 8 AM on August 12, 2020. All jobs running at the beginning of the maintenance will be killed.

The following work is currently scheduled for Argon:

  • continued migration of home accounts to new server
  • update switches
  • OS updates and other miscellaneous updates
