ARCTIC will conduct maintenance on the ACIDS cluster beginning on Thursday, July 15 from 8 a.m. until Friday, July 16 at 8 p.m. To prepare, ensure you have no running jobs on the cluster by July 15 as we will be restarting all the nodes. We will be preventing new jobs from being submitted beginning on July 14 at 8 p.m. until the maintenance is complete.
We will also be clearing the "/scratch" directory on the cluster. If you have any data stored there, move it to iRODs in your work or project folder before July 15. You can use iput -r 'foldername' to put an entire folder recursively into an iRODs collection.
Our iRODs inventory can be found at https://arcwiki.rs.gsu.edu/en/iRODS/navigating-irods. In the future, if your job is not currently running on the cluster, related data in the "/scratch" directory will automatically be removed as "/scratch" is not intended for long term storage.
