Grid Maintenance - August 2017

August 18, 2017

This is a reminder that the next monthly Grid maintenance is scheduled for Monday, August 7th, from 8am until 12pm.


How will this affect you?

  • All sessions to the login nodes will be terminated (including terminal and NoMachine sessions)
  • All interactive sessions will be terminated
  • You will not be able to login to the grid
  • You will not be able to use NoMachine
  • You will not be able to login or use MariaDB

The actual work being performed is:

  • The terminal and NoMachine login nodes will be rebooted
  • MariaDB upgrade to version 10
    • This upgrade will provide a number of benefits to users, in the form of optimizations, bug fixes, and new engines. Users will have new workflow options as well as faster queries
  • Updating current Git version

***Due to the Labor Day holiday, our next maintenance will occur on Monday, September 11th, 2017.***
