February 21, 2024: SciNet Data Centre Maintenance:
This annual winter maintenance involves a full data centre shutdown
starting at 7:00 am EST on Wednesday, February 21st. None of the
SciNet systems (Niagara, Mist, Rouge, Teach, the file systems, as
well as hosted equipment) will be accessible. All systems should be
fully available again in the evening of the 21st.
The scheduler will hold jobs that cannot finish before the start of
the shutdown. Users are encouraged to submit small and short jobs
that can take advantage of this, as the scheduler may be able to fit
these jobs in before the maintenance on otherwise idle nodes.
