RCC welcomes Cameron Berkley!

We're excited about our newest team member, Cameron Berkley.

Cameron joined our systems team in January, 2016. He received his bachelors degree in Scientific Computing from the FSU Department of Scientific Computing where he studied geometric morphometrics and computer vision. He is currently continuing with his masters degree, working on shape retrieval algorithms.

Winter Break Notice

Winter break is upon us again! As a reminder, FSU will be closed for the Winter holiday, starting Thursday, Dec 24 though Sunday, January 4. We will re-open on January 4.

During this break, our systems will remain online and functional. RCC staff will respond to any critical support requests sent to support@rcc.fsu.edu as soon we are able. All non-critical support requests will be answered when we return on January 4, 2015.

On behalf of the staff here at the RCC, we wish you a fun, festive, and high-performance holiday!

Consolidating Condor into Slurm

As of today, over 229,300 jobs have successfully run in the Slurm scheduler. Given the stability and flexibility of the new scheduler, we are consolidating the Condor system into the Slurm. This means that jobs you previously submitted to Condor, you will now submit to a HPC partition named Condor.

Lustre and Spear Status

Update - Oct 14 - 4:45pm

Our Systems Team has been working hard today to restore the Lustre storage service. As of 4:45pm today, the Lustre system is online but in recovery mode. It is currently working on Spear nodes, but not yet on export nodes.

This means that Spear is now online. Lustre access from the HPC or from other systems is not functional yet, though. We will keep you posted as to progress.

Thanks again for your patience,
