Blue Waters Partners:
- Globus command line interface issue is resolved.
- Shifter software upgrade on 6/18/2020
- Reminder: Portal dynamic data interruption on 6/12/2020
- The Globus issue experienced when using the command line interface provided by bwpy/2.0.2 has been resolved without a need for any local updates, as changes performed by Globus outside of Blue Waters resolved the issue.
On Thursday, June 18, 2020, we will be updating Shifter module from version 16.08.3 to 18.03.4. The new version will provide a number of stability improvements and enables local user images. When complete, the "shifter" GRES specification will remain valid, but shifter16 will be disabled.
Documentation will be updated at that point to reflect the changes.
Shifter jobs that are already running at that time are unlikely to encounter issues, but it is possible in some circumstances. If this happens, you can resubmit the job using the "shifter" GRES as documentation will reflect once the change is performed.
A reminder that on Friday June 12 at 2 PM CT, maintenance will be performed on a backend database supporting dynamic system information presented in the Blue Waters portal. The hardware maintenance should complete in less than an hour. During this timeframe, updated dynamic data regarding Blue Waters system status may not be available. The Blue Waters system is expected to continue to operate normally during this maintenance.
Please notify firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
