The Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Swedish Foundation of Strategic Research (SSF) have performed an evaluation of Swedish Research in Mathematics. In this evaluation Numerical Analysis including High Performance Computing is also included. The evaluation has been performed by an international committee of experts.

The research at the Department of Computing Science and HPC2N that was evaluated (funded by VR and/or SSF) received very high gradings.

Abisko will be down due to maintenance on the cooling system 20160413 and 20160414.

During that time we will also perform some maintenance on the /pfs/nobackup file system.

This means that /pfs/nobackup will be unavailable both of those days.

No jobs will be allowed to run during this maintenance window.

*UPDATE 2016-04-14 19:00*
The system is now back online again.

Abisko now back online after the maintenance

Abisko is now back online after a two day maintenance window.

We have found some discrepancies regarding the quota information that are not yet fixed.

Some users have large differences between what the quota system thinks and what is actually there in the file system. This may cause some problems with hitting the file quota limit. If this happens please send a mail to support@hpc2n.umu.se and we will deal with it.

We will try to fix this problem during the next maintenance window in May.
