We are currently experiencing file system server problems.

This causes problems with logins and any access to the file system.

We're working to get it back online but currently have no ETA for this.


*UPDATE 2022-07-06 16:00*

File system is looking stable again, we'll continue to keep an eye on it at least until tomorrow.

*UPDATE 2022-07-08 10:30*
File system has been stable for two days so we consider it fully online as of now.

Maintenance on the file system 2022-06-(27-30) *DONE 20220701 15:00*

On Monday 2022-06-27 we will start an upgrade of the file system servers.

Our hope is that this will reduce the amount of problems we have had the past couple of weeks.

The reason for the rather long maintenance window is that we will do some cleanup of potential and known problems before the upgrade and that is expected to take a relatively long time.

Further information on progress etc will be updated on this page.

*UPDATE 2022-06-29 11:00*

The upgrade of the server code is done and initial file system checks have finished.

Cooling problem in computer hall, cluster down 2022-04-04 14:00

The cooling has failed in the computer hall causing an emergency power break.

We're investigating the reason and will try to get the cluster back as soon as possible.


* UPDATE 2022-04-04 16:30 *

The cluster is being brought up, this will take a while longer.

But  more cooling-related work needs to be done tomorrow, so we have put a reservation on the cluster starting 2022-04-05 13:00.

This means that only short jobs will be allowed to start until after the next cooling work is finished and the system is safe to bring up fully.
