TANGO HPC Outage – Tuesday 10 April 2018

TANGO HPC Outage – Tuesday 10 April 2018
March 8, 2018 Chris Button

As part of our Storage Maintenance happening on Tuesday, 10 April 2018 between 10am and 2pm, there will be a disruption to TANGO HPC, including Bigmem.

During the outage, the modules library and the SLURM directory will be intermittently offline. Running jobs are likely to fail once modules become unavailable and queued jobs may exit without starting.

We will do our best to complete this operation as fast as possible to keep the disruption minimal.

Our next scheduled maintenance window will be between 4 -11 July 2018. You will be notified of any outages closer to this time. For the full 2018 maintenance calendar, please visit our System Maintenance page.

  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”

  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”  
    Associate Professor Con DoolanSchool of Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • "eResearch capabilities ... ensure we can continue to use the latest methods available in our field. The hope is that through the use of these technologies, we will be able to achieve some research outcomes that may otherwise not have been possible.”  
    Professor Ina Bornkessel-SchlesewskyCognitive Neuroscience, UniSA
  • "The eRSA support is very personal and solution-focused and not just a brushing off 'it's-your-fault-check-your-code' kind of support which one sometimes gets from University tech supports. I very much appreciate the help."  
    Sven SchellenbergSchool of Science, RMIT University
  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
    Professor Andrea GersonMinerals and Materials Science & Technology
