Conte Cluster Maintenance

January 19, 2017  8:00am – 11:59pm

Conte is back in production, and jobs have started running. Thank you for your patience.


Because of additional work required to fix a configuration problem, this maintenance is running past the scheduled end time. We are extending the outage until 3am.


The Conte cluster will be unavailable beginning at Thursday, January 19th, 2017 at 8:00am, for scheduled maintenance. The cluster will return to full production by Thursday, January 19th, 2017 at 11:59pm.

During this time, Conte will have the operating system patched, the PBS resource management system upgraded, and maintenance performed on the Lustre scratch filesystem.

Any PBS jobs which request a walltime which would take them past Thursday, January 19th, 2017 at 8:00am will not start and will remain in the queue until after the maintenance is completed.
