Upgrade Image on Eagle
June 5, 2020
Eagle has been running on CentOS 7.4 image since its deployment in late 2018. The ACO team has been working on upgrading the image to CentOS 7.7 and is anticipated to be rolled out this July.
The new image will be running the upgraded kernel, lustre client, OFED drivers and Infiniband HCA firmware. This update will address the requests for newer kernel, issues related to large job productivity, vulnerabilities of the current kernel and to align with the new recipe of software/firmware stack provided by HPE and Mellanox.
FastX running on the user facing Data Analysis and Visualization (DAV) nodes will be upgraded to the newer release to address the current issues with load balancing.
