$USERWORK auto-cleanup on Saga

Dear Saga User,

The usage of the /cluster file system on Saga has now bypassed 60%. To maintain the file system as responsive as possible, we have to periodically decrease the number of files, free up space and enforce automatic deletion of temporary files.

Starting with Wednesday, 19th of February we are going to activate the automatic cleanup of the $USERWORK (/cluster/work) area as documented here.

The retention period is:

  • 42 days below 70% file system usage
  • 21 days when file system usage reaches 70%.

Files older then the active retention period will be automatically deleted.
You can read more information about the storage areas on HPC clusters here and here.

Please copy all your important data from $USERWORK to your project area to avoid data loss.

Thank you for your understanding!
