Please cleanup data on Saga!

Dear users on Saga,

currently, usage on Saga’s parallel file system (everything under /cluster) is at about 93%. Already, some of the file system servers are not accepting new data. If usage increases even further, soon the performance of the parallel file system may drop significantly, then some users may experience data loss and finally the whole cluster may come to a complete halt.


Therefore, we are kindly asking all users with large usage (check with the command dusage) to cleanup unneeded data. Please, check all storage locations you’re storing data, that is, $HOME$USERWORK, project folders (/cluster/projects/...) and shared folders (/cluster/shared/...). Particularly, we’re asking users whose $HOME quota is not (yet) enforced (see line with $HOME in example below) to reduce their usage as soon as possible. Quota for $HOME if set is 20 GiB.

[saerda@login-3.SAGA ~]$ dusage -u saerda
Block quota usage on: SAGA
File system   User/Group   Usage   SoftLimit     HardLimit 
saerda_g  $HOME             6.9 TiB 0 Bytes     0 Bytes
saerda    saerda (u)        2.8 GiB    0 Bytes       0 Bytes

In parallel, we are trying to help users to reduce their usage and to increase the capacity of the file system, but these measures usually take time.

Many thanks in advance!
