On June 13th there will be maintenance to configure the networking on Chinook and assist in addressing an observed slowdown in multi-node jobs running on the cluster.

Any jobs that are scheduled to run during this time will remain in the queue.

Jun 13 2017 - 9:00am to 11:30am

Our maintenance on Chinook to address the slowdown on multi-node jobs is now complete. As a result of this change in multi-node jobs the following should be added to your job submission script:

ulimit -l unlimited
ulimit -s unlimited

If these commands are not added there is a possibility that your job may fail.
