Dear NIRD and Service Platform users,
We have a planned downtime on the 22nd of August, to replace some defective hardware. Systems will be taken offline starting from 08:00AM.
Engineer from storage vendor will assist us from the very first hour.
We expect the maintenance to finish in one and a half day.
NIRD projects will still be accessible during the maintenance
from login-trd.nird.sigma2.no but in read-only mode.
Will keep you updated here.
Sorry for the short notice.
2019-04-17: 9.30 Due to the on-going restoration of a large fileset on NIRD users may experience a significant slowness. Expected duration for the restoration is 5 days. Sorry for the inconvenience.
2019-04-15:10.30 Due to the on-going restoration of NS2345K on NIRD the FRAM mountpoint is now located at /tos-project1/NS2345Ktmp/FRAM.
We are currently experiencing a high load on the home file system.
This can also prevent users from accessing the login nodes.
update 16-11-18 9:00: NIRD and service platform are up again.
Due to disk failures on NIRD, we have to shut down NIRD and the Service Platform immediately to avoid losing user data.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Due to unforseen issues with the hardware yesterday the maintenance will continue today.
So more short downtimes of the services are to be expected.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
19-10-2018: maintenance is over since yesterday evening.
Thank you for your patience.
