  • 2018-08-14:  Crane: /work filesystem downtime resolved
    Category:  General Announcement

    The /work filesystem for Crane is restored as of 11:30am. A filesystem check was completed with no errors found.

    Running jobs which were accessing /work stalled until the filesystem was restored. This may have caused jobs to exceed their time limit. There was no data loss from this outage.

  • 2018-08-14:  Crane: /work filesystem unplanned downtime
    Category:  System Failure

    The /work filesystem for Crane is partially unavailable. One of the storage servers stopped responding around 7:00am today. Initial debugging suggests an issue with the Lustre server using excessive kernel memory. The storage server has been rebooted and we are currently running filesystem checks.

    Pending jobs will be held until the maintenance is complete.
