[farmshare-discuss] FarmShare maintenance complete

Both the FarmShare 2 and legacy FarmShare environments have been returned to service. FarmShare 2 service is slightly degraded pending additional maintenance on hardware affected by yesterday’s power outage.

During maintenance some new limits on FarmShare 2 compute jobs were introduced. You must now request a minimum of 96GB of memory (--mem=96G) when submitting a job to the bigmem queue; this change makes FarmShare submission requirements more similar to those on Sherlock 2.0. Limits have also been placed on the number of jobs that may be queued per user: 1024 on the normal partition, and 64 each on the long, bigmem, and gpu partitions. In order to encourage proper use of the interactive quality-of service, jobs submitted to this QoS will receive a modest priority boost. Finally, some additional limits will be introduced in the next few days that should give pending jobs more opportunities to run when there is contention for cluster resources.
