October 2021 Eagle System Time Complete

Oct. 15, 2021

Eagle's October 2021 system time is now complete. 

During this system time, the Eagle team upgraded the Lustre filesystem’s server software and back-end storage, automated the /home quota process, and conducted other routine patching as necessary. 

To improve handling of standby jobs, a set of new partitions was created with “-stdby” appended to the partition name. This change allows for two improvements:  

  • Standby jobs will no longer have a maximum node limit
  • Standby jobs should only run when there are idle nodes

We also performed power and cooling system repairs on several E-cells (blocks of 288 nodes.)

Eagle has returned to service. You may log in to manage your data and submit jobs. 

Thank you,

NREL HPC Operations Team
