The Bell cluster will be unavailable Wednesday, December 16, 2020 from 11:00am – 1:00pm for scheduled maintenance. During this time, work will be performed on several auxiliary servers.

Prior to the maintenance, any SLURM jobs which request a walltime which would take them past Wednesday, December 16th, 2020 at 11:00am will not start and will remain in the queue until after the maintenance is completed.

During the maintenance users will be able to login to cluster front-ends and submit jobs (which will start execution after the maintenance ends). We do not expect running jobs to be affected.
