BDC Shut down
The Bremner data centre is being shut down completely on Sunday the 12th of February between 08:00 and 17:00. The HAL cluster will be off-line during this time. This will not affect jobs running on HEX.
Head node reboot
The HEX head node needs to be patched and rebooted. This will be done on Monday 20th February and will have no effect on normal running jobs. All interactive jobs, ssh connections and screen sessions will be terminated at 09:00. The head node should only be off-line for a few hours.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our users to abide by the acceptable usage policy, notably:
– No workload processes to be run on the head node.
– Large amounts of data (~>10GB) to be transferred using a worker node or the hexdata node.
