Dear cluster users,
due to the recent performance problems with the storage system, we are currently testing a distributed file system for user data storage. Please note that the nodes c2-0 to c2-4 are now used as storage servers.
I moved all user data to a new storage. There should be no changes for you, except that the current experimental storage system does NOT provide any redundancy whatsoever and WILL loose all data in case of a hardware failure. As before, it is YOUR obligation to back up any data
that is critical to you.
I hope the dreadful performance of majorana will improve with the new system.
If you experience any problems with the new distributed storage system or have any questions, feel free to contact me. If you do not have any questions, feel free to buy me a beer.

List of newly installed packages (installed mostly because of the ever growing complexity of R):
From the manual:
The qsub -m command requests email to be sent to the user who submitted a job or to the email addresses specified by the -M flag if certain events occur. See the qsub(1) man page for a description of the flags. An argument to the -m option specifies the events. The following arguments are available:
Use a string made up of one or more of the letter arguments to specify several of these options with a single -m option. For example, -m be sends email at the beginning and at the end of a job.
Thus, you can simply change your submit script like this:
#$ -N NAME_OF_JOB
#$ -m a,s
#$ -M firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com
This sends a mail to the two specified email addresses if the job is rescheduled or aborted. If you omit -M, the mail is send to the user who submitted the job.
As stated before, you should always compile your programs on the nodes
and NOT on majorana. As the nodes are sometimes really busy (and thus
compilation takes ages), I reserved the node “c0-0″ for compiling.
From now on, please compile your programs on c0-0.
Please observe these simple rules when going into the cluster room:
Of course, the usual rules (switch of light and monitors etc…) apply as well.
Please make sure that you remember these rules whenever going into the cluster room.
