[farmshare-discuss] Barley AFS dies in a job with large task array

Hi Long,

Yesterday, there was some AFS server congestion that affected barley18 
specifically, and caused AFS access to time out on that machine.

It may be easiest for you to just copy your data and software to 
/mnt/glusterfs so you don't have the dependency on AFS for those jobs 
(and explicitly specify your job input/output files).

I don't see any jobs under your name right now, did your job error out?
