  • 2016-09-07:  Tusker: /work filesystem performance issues resolved
    Category:  General Announcement

    The Tusker /work filesystem is running normally. A reboot of the Lustre metadata server (MDS) was required. Unfortunately, this may have caused job failures for processes reading or writing the /work filesystem at the time. If you had running jobs on Tusker, please check their state as it may be necessary to resubmit these jobs.

    Please contact us at hcc-support@unl.edu with any questions.

    We are investigating performance issues with the Tusker /work Lustre filesystem. Around 8:30am on Wednesday, performance of the Tusker /work filesystem dropped significantly.

    To correct the problem, we are restarting Lustre services. This may disrupt running processes which are reading or writing files on /work.

    We will follow up with more details when the maintenance is complete.

  • 2016-08-04:  HCC Tusker Downtime Planned - August 15, 2016
    Category:  Maintenance

    This maintenance outage for software updates affects Tusker only. Jobs which cannot complete before August 15th at 08:00am will be held in queue until the maintenance is complete. A follow-up announcement will be posted when the system is ready for production use.


    To minimize the impact to running jobs we are declaring a downtime for Tusker to complete this work. We will use this maintenance window to update various software components across the cluster. The Tusker login node will also be updated and will require users to log off. Users will be denied access to the Tusker login node until the maintenance is completed.
