The MGHPCC has scheduled its yearly data center maintenance for Tuesday May 23. The maintenance will last all day. In preparation for this event, Engaging (which is housed at MGHPCC) will be gracefully shutting down starting the day before, Monday May 22 at 2pm ET. Engaging will be brought back online starting the morning of Wednesday May 24.

Please plan your job submissions accordingly. A reservation will be placed on the entire cluster which will reduce the maximum runtime of jobs, so please remember to add a time request to all jobs. Time requests are a best practice even when the system is not going into maintenance. To request a time slice for your job you can do the following:

For interactive/srun jobs:

srun --time=2-12:00 –p sched_mit_sloan_interactive myapp

For batch jobs add the –time parameter to your submit file:

#SBATCH --time=2-12:00

In both cases the example is requesting a time slice of 2 days 12 hours.
