Pawsey Scheduled Maintenance

Systems/Services Affected:

SC: Setonix, Garrawarla, Zeus

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre schedules Maintenances for the first Tuesday of every month, between 0800 and 2000.

Whilst not every Maintenance will require outages to services, Pawsey systems should be considered as "at risk" during those times.


Tuesday 6th

  • 18:30 The Data team's maintenance has been completed
  • 19:30 The SCOps team's work on Zeus and Garrawarla has been completed, however, the outage
    to Setonix will need to be carried over until tomorrow.

Thursday 8th

  • 12:00 Overnight, AWST, remote vendor engineers identified a problem with the Lustre fiesystem
    providing /scratch, that had been preventing  the return to service of Setonix.
    Testing of Setonix, along with the remainder of the Maintenance work, has now been completed
    and Setonix has been returned to service
