COSMOS2 maintenance


We have scheduled time for maintenance on 2014-01-29, starting 09:00 by which time the queues will be drained. We have reserved a 24-hour window for the maintenance, so unless something unexpected and unsurmountable occurs, COSMOS will be back online before 09:00 the morning after.

This maintenance is a rescheduling of the one on 2014-01-22 and the goal is to finish the work started last year to replace the faulty PCIe sockets on 4 of the nodes.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
