Maintenance on the file system 2022-06-(27-30)

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.

Course: Introduction to Kebnekaise, 2022-09-15

In this course, we begin with a short introduction to the Linux operating system (OS) that is used on HPC2N's compute cluster, and is the most common OS in HPC clusters. This part is only meant for complete beginners to the Linux operating system, and can be omitted if you are proficient already. See the schedule.

  • By: bbrydsoe

This workshop targets programmers in both academia and industry who already have experience with basic MPI and are ready to take the next step to more advanced usage. Topics which will be covered include communicators, groups, derived data types, one-sided communication, non-blocking collectives and hybrid MPI+threading approaches. Lectures will be interleaved with hands-on exercises. All exercises will be written in C, but the instructors will be able to answer questions about MPI in Fortran and Python.

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.

Update 2022-03-25 12:20 Maintenance ended and Kebenkaise is up and running again and the accessnodes are also open


Updated 2022-03-25 07:10 We have done most of the work and the current plan is that Kebnekaise will be up after 12.00 today


On Thursday 2022-03-24 from 05.00 there will be maintenance on the cooling system for the cluster compute datacenter.

At the same time we will also do maintenance on the parallel file system.
