Network problems on Abisko, 2017-02-07

We have been having some network problems on Abisko since late Sunday (2017-02-05) evening. These are mostly solved, but there are still some remaining issues which we are investigating. There is a risk that this may affect a small number of running jobs.

In addition, this means that a number of nodes have temporarily been taken out of production. This means there are fewer available nodes, which may affect the queue time negatively on Abisko.

This system news will be updated when there is more information.

Kebnekaise - removing toolchains intel 2015b,2016a, and 2016b

Due to bugs in the compiler we are removing the following toolchains:

intel/2015b, intel/2016a, and intel/2016b

We are going to do a switchover to a new build, using intel/2017.01 instead of the above toolchains.

The switchover will be disruptive in sofar as all jobs using the old toolchains will fail.

This is unfortunate but necessary. However, since the machine is lightly loaded at the moment there should be no problem catching up on the production for everyone.

We are experiencing intermittent problems connecting to the Abisko login node. We are searching for the cause.

For now, if the Abisko login node ( hangs when you try to login, break the connection and try again.

This system news will be updated with more information when we have it.


Update 2016-10-18, 16:34. The network problem has been solved, and there should not be any problems logging in to Abisko any longer.

Matlab 2016b is now the default Matlab version on Abisko. 

Some older version of Matlab is also available. Run 'module avail matlab' when logged in to Abisko to see the current list of available versions.
