We’re aware of ongoing issues with the file system performance on Saga and are investigating the cause. This also affects logging in to Saga, where the terminal will hang waiting for a prompt.
Updates will be provided in this post as soon as we have more information to share.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Update 2021-07-15, 16:33: The issue was identified as a faulty connection between the storage server and the cluster. Performance should be back to normal, but we will monitor the system a bit more before declaring it healthy.
Update 2021-07-14, 15:00: We’ve discovered some faulty drives that are currently being swapped. We hope that the performance will improve once these are in production again.
Update 2021-07-13, 10:03: The file system is a bit more stable now, but we’re still looking into the cause for the degraded performance.
