Emergency shutdown

Due to an unexpected aggregate load, Nestum was switched offline this morning (around 10 AM local time). Although no data or job progress was lost, the machine will operate on reduced capacity until we are sure that the issue is resolved.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Partitions back online

The “medium” and “long” partitions are back online, and you can submit jobs onto them. Unfortunately, a problem was detected on compute node cn014 and we’ve removed it from the queue until the situation is resolved.

Water supply maintenance

Dear users,

We have disabled the “medium” and “long” SLURM partitions, meaning that submitting jobs on those partitions is temporarily unavailable. We have done this due to the fact that tomorrow, 09.08.2018, the water supply to Sofia TechPark will be cut because of repairs. This might interfere with the air conditioning in the server room, so we have taken steps to mitigate the possible effects of overheating. The partitions will be available again at 9 pm tomorrow.
