The majority of the Research Computing computational resources will be unavailable July 30, 2021 7:00am - August 1, 2021 12:00pm EDT for a whole-floor downtime due to electrical power work in MATH and POD data centers. Along with a required preventative maintenance, the work will provide power equipment upgrades necessary to house the upcoming NSF-funded Anvil supercomputer.

Due to the nature and extent of the work, some resources will be affected longer than the others. The following table provides tentative maintenance start and end times for various Research Computing systems:
Start time End Time Resources
Friday, July 30th, 2021 at 7:00am Sunday, August 1st, 2021 at 12:00pm Brown, Hammer, Weber
Saturday, July 31st, 2021 at 7:00am Sunday, August 1st, 2021 at 12:00pm Bell, CMS, Halstead, Geddes, Gilbreth, Scholar, Workbench
Not affected Data Depot, WSC, WCERES, customer VMs and servers

All systems will return to full production by Sunday, August 1st, 2021 at 12:00pm.

Any SLURM jobs which request a walltime which would take them past the above times will not start and will remain in the queue until after the maintenance is completed.
