  • 2011-01-13:  Firefly storage firmware upgrade - Jan 13, 2011
    Category:  Maintenance

    We would like to run a critical firmware update for the Panasas storage array on Firefly at 10:00 am January 13, 2011.

    Firefly will temporarily be unavailable starting 10:00 am, until approximately 12:00 pm.

    While we do not anticipate a full scale outage during this upgrade process, we will make our best attempt at minimizing job losses during this period.

    An announcement will be sent out once we complete the firmware upgrade.

  • 2011-01-11:  Firefly /work space unavailable.
    Category:  General Announcement

    Firefly's /work space is temporarily unavailable. Our storage system lost a storage blade and the system preemptively took the /work volume offline to prevent further issues.

    Your running jobs accessing /work will stall until /work is back online. You do not have to terminate your jobs.

    We are working on restoring service.
