Work continues on completing maintenance tasks and bringing Anvil back to normal operation. We will provide another update by 8pm EDT tonight.

Link to original posting ORIGINAL:

The Anvil system will be unavailable Tuesday, March 21, 2023 from 8:00am - 6:00pm EDT for scheduled maintenance. Any Slurm jobs which request a walltime which would take them past Tuesday, March 21st, 2023 at 8:00am EDT will not start and will remain in the queue until after the maintenance is completed.

How does this maintenance impact you?

  1. The default queue will be changed from wholenode to shared.
  2. NVIDIA GPU driver will be updated and CUDA 12.0.0 will be added as a module.

Anvil will return to full production by Tuesday, March 21st, 2023 at 6:00pm EDT. Please submit a ticket through ACCESS Help Desk at if you have any questions.
