Bugaboo Cooling System Failure

The Bugaboo system was affected by a cooling system failure on Nov. 8 that caused the file servers to shutdown and consequently made the system unavailable. Some computenodes also shutdown. The Bugaboo headnode never went down.

At this time (18:45 PST) everything is up and running again and a large number of running jobs survived the cooling failure. Other jobs that ran on nodes that shutdown need to be resubmitted - please check.
