COSMOS2 crash

Another crash, possibly same reason as Saturday morning

Dear users,

We experienced yet another problem with cosmos2 this morning. It is in an unusable state, which means we need to reboot it and all the jobs that were running it will be lost.

We will restore service as soon as possible and raise the issue with the vendor. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Best regards,


COSMOS2 Recent crash

On the evening on Saturday 15th March the kernel on COSMOS2 crashed. We are currently investigating the cause of the crash. Apologies to those whose jobs were killed as a result of this.

The system is being rebooted now.

This is followed by a short period of intermittent availability of the intel
compiler and debugger tools.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Best regards,
