HPC systems returned to service after scheduled maintenance

October 21, 2022

NCAR’s supercomputing and storage systems were all returned to service on Thursday following completion of scheduled preventive maintenance and security updates.

As announced, any impact on users should be minimal. Some may notice minor changes in their GLADE file space quota reports as a result of block size adjustments in /glade/u/home directories. The block size for the home file space, as noted here, was increased from 1 MB to 8 MB, while the sub-block allocation changed from 32 KB to 16 KB. This was the result of a change to new hardware. Most users will notice a small space savings as a result.

Please contact the NCAR Research Computing help desk if you have questions.
