Breezy System Status

Post date System Status: Update Notes
2017-09-05 - 10:33 PDT System to be defunded

System Defunded August 31, 2017

On August 31st 2017, Lattice and Breezy were de-funded as Compute Canada/WestGrid systems. This means that users who are not affiliated with the University of Calgary will no longer be able to submit new jobs. Login access has been maintained to allow users to move their data to Compute Canada systems until the end of September. 

After September 30, 2017, all data from non-University of Calgary users will be deleted. If you are a non-University of Calgary user, make sure that you move your data from /home and /global/scratch before the end of September.                                      

Users who have a Parallel account are not affected by this.

Breezy - 2017-08-29 - System back to normal operation.

Breezy is back to normal operation after last night's power failure. Please examine job output from failed jobs carefully and resubmit as necessary.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Note that Breezy is a "defunded" system, so, jobs by non-University of Calgary projects will not be allowed after August 31, 2017.

2017-08-28 - Power failure affects Breezy

All WestGrid clusters in Calgary, including Breezy, experienced a momentary power outage around 2200 MDT on Aug 28, 2017 causing the loss of all running jobs.  As of this writing (0155 Tuesday morning), files are available through the login server, but, normal batch job scheduling has not yet been restored.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update 2017-08-28 - System To Be Defunded Aug. 31 should not have included Parallel

Update 2017-08-28

On August 15, the following notice appeared on the Parallel System page:

"The Breezy and Lattice systems will be “defunded” August 31, 2017 and available only to local users from the University of Calgary after that date. Please visit the Migration Process page for more information."

Sorry for the confusion.  This should not have been on the Parallel page.  Parallel will remain in operation until further notice.
