We have experienced the cooling issue with one of the MCS racks and unfortunately all jobs using the nodes within pack24, pack25 and pack26 were lost. Please check your intermediate data and resubmit the lost computations.

The nodes within pack24, pack25 and pack26 are not currently available. We will try to bring these nodes on-line ASAP.

Sorry for any inconveniences.

Orcinus UBC power outage Dec 20, 12:15 PM (PST)

The UBC campus experienced  power loss, all buildings were affected.
 As a result all Orcinus' computing nodes lost power. The jobs running
 on these nodes were lost. Please examine your intermediate data and
 resubmit the lost computations.
 As the power at UBC is not stable, the compute nodes are still powered
 down, and we will resume the processing tomorrow when the storm passes.

 We are sorry for any inconveniences, but unfortunately these power issues
 are beyond our control.
