Unexpected Power Outage in MATH

January 8, 2013  8:00am – 12:00pm

Update: Noon, 1/8/13

The power issue in MATH has been resolved. Power has been restored to the nodes in the Coates-A subcluster affected by the outage. ITaP engineers have verified that the Coates-A subcluster is operating correctly, and have restarted job scheduling.

As always, thank you for your patience. If you have any questions or encounter any issues please contact us at rcac-help@purdue.edu

Issue: Due to an unexpected power issue in MATH, a large portion of the Coates-A subcluster is currently offline. To prevent job loss, systems engineers have stopped scheduling on queues that contain Coates-A nodes, including the standby queue. Jobs currently running on the remaining operational nodes should not be affected.

System engineers are working to bring these systems back online and electricians are working to determine the cause of the power outage.

We will send out another update before around 2pm or sooner if the power situation changes.

Thank you for your patience during this outage.
