  • This is a significant upgrade and some binaries are not compatible anymore, thus before opening support case please recompile your code.

  • Older compilers will have to use the following compiling recipe:

    module swap cray-mpich cray-mpich2
    module swap cray-libsci cray-libsci/12.2.0
    module load craype-barcelona

  • Only current version of PGI will work without using the above mentioned recipe.

  • xt prefixed modules are deprecated and replaced by cray prefixed modules.

  • Cray CCE is not working currently because of missing license. We are in contact with the vendor.
  • System maintenance is still ongoing, during the whole day today.

    Update 2014.11.25 18:00 Due to unexpected behaviour during update we regret to inform that the maintenance has to be extended. Will will come later with further updates.

    Update 2014.11.25 21:27 We have to postpone opening of hexagon due to issues with the scheduling system. We are working tightly with Cray to fix this issue.

    Update 2014.11.26 20:33 Issues with the job submission system requires us to delay opening. It well can be that system will not be opened before next week. We try to fix it as soon as possible.

    Update 2014.11.27 11:24 The majority of issues were resolved and Hexagon is now available. One of the main remaining issues is interactive job submission, which will be handled during next week, without stopping machine for an extra maintenance.

    We will have a planned hexagon maintenance on November, 24th and 25th.
    The maintenance will start on 24th at 9:00 and we expect it will take
    around 2 days.

    The job submission system has reservation in place such as the jobs
    which are not able to finish before the maintenance will not be started.

    We are planning to do the following during the maintenance window:
    * Update Cray Management Software to 7.2.UP02
    * Update Cray Linux Environment to 5.2.UP02
    * Update Lustre file system on /work and /work-common
    * Apply different firmware updates and patches
    * Install newer libraries, compilers and tools

    IMPORTANT!: After the maintenance, the default MPT will be 7.x (MPICH
    3.1). All software will have to be recompiled. We will come with the
    details and options after the maintenance.
