REMINDER: Deep Thought HPC Outage 4th September

Reminder: today, (4th September), there will be an outage of the Flinders High Performance Computing (HPC) facility Deep Thought from 9:30 am to 5pm, so that the HPC management tool SLURM can be enhanced to take full advantage of the new HPC. 

The SLURM update will allow:

  • Enhanced queue management
  • More efficient use of available resources including specialist data nodes (GPU).

It is critical that all your Deep Thought jobs finish before 9am. Any jobs running after 9:30 am will be stopped, potentially resulting in lost data. 

After Deep Thought is made available again, you should update your SLURM scripts to take full advantage of the improvements. Attached is the script changes you will need to make after the outage is complete.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact DigitalResearchServices.
