The gizmo cluster will be unavailable during the Scratch file system rebuild. To prevent jobs from running during this time we have placed a maintenance reservation on gizmo.

Jobs that would not complete before the maintenance will start will be held until after the work is complete. squeue will show the job as pending with reason ReqNodeNotAvail, Reserved for maintenance.

If you are confident your job can complete before the maintenance period starts you can reduce the time limit of the job. This command will set the time limit to one day:

scontrol update jobid=<jobid> timelimit=1-0

Updates to the Gizmo Environment

Slurm Upgrade

We’ll be updating Slurm to version 21.08. There are a number of changes which we don’t expect will impact our current use of Slurm but upgrading will keep us well positioned for support.

Detailed changes are available in the release notes.

Contact Scientific Computing by filing a helpdesk ticket (scicomp@) if you need assistance or have further questions.
