All systems are operational
Scheduled Maintenance
Planned Outage - Arrêt planifié

The SciNet datacentre will undergo a two-day maintenance shutdown on May 29th and 30th 2019, starting at 7 am EDT on Monday May 29th. There will be no access to any of the SciNet systems (Niagara, P7, P8, BGQ, SGC, HPSS, Teach cluster, or the file systems) during this time. This is necessary to finish the installation of an emergency power generator, to perform the annual cooling tower maintenance, and to enhance login security. We expect to be able to bring the systems back online the evening of May 30th. Due to the enhanced login security, the ssh applications of users will need to update their known host list. More detailed information on this procedure will be sent shortly before the systems are back online. For up-to-date and more detailed information on the status of all the SciNet systems, you can always check https://docs.scinet.utoronto.ca.


Toutes les ressources de calcul et de stockage situées dans le centre de données de SciNet (Niagara, P7, P8, BGQ, SGC, HPSS, et Teach) ne seront pas disponibles les 29 et 30 mai 2019, à partir de 7h (heure de l'Est) le mercredi 29 mai. L’arrêt de service est nécessaire pour compléter la installation d'un générateur de secours, pour le service d'entretien de la tour aéroréfrigérante, et pour améliorer la sécurité de connexion. Nous espérons pouvoir remettre les systèmes en ligne le 30 mai en soir. En raison de la sécurité de connexion améliorée, les applications ssh des utilisateurs devront mettre à jour leur liste des hôtes connus. Des informations plus détaillées sur cette procédure seront communiquées peu avant la remise en service des systèmes. Les mises à jour détailées seront postées sur https://docs.scinet.utoronto.ca.
