/pfs/nobackup full

The /pfs/nobackup filesystem is almost completely full. This is resulting in several
problems: a drop in performance, jobs not being allowed to start, jobs
failing, etc.

/pfs/nobackup is a place for temporary storage of files for active jobs
only, and the amount of space on the /pfs/nobackup filesystem is limited.
We are currently relying on a voluntary system to keep it from
filling up - i.e. users are expected to remove files as soon as they are no
longer necessary for current calculations.

Thus, if you have files you can delete, do so, even if you don't have many/large
files. Lots of people deleting a little bit each, goes a long way.

For inactive data that needs to be stored/archived for later use, we
recommend using the SweStore Nationally Accessible Storage system.
For more information see the SNIC documentation site at

If you need assistance using SweStore, we will be happy to help you.
