Partial Availability Due to Transformer Maintenance


The SciNet datacentre, which hosts Niagara and Mist, will undergo a transformer maintenance from 7:30 am EDT to 5:00 pm EDT.  At both the start and the end of this maintenance window, all systems will need to be briefly shutdown and will not be accessible.  Apart from that, during this window, login nodes will be accessible and part of Niagara will be available to run jobs. The Mist cluster will be off for the entirety of this maintenance.

Users are encouraged to submit Niagara jobs of about 1 to 2 hours in the days before the maintenance, as these could be run within the window of 8 AM and 5 PM EDT.

The status of the Niagara cluster can be checked here, or, for up-to-date and more detailed information, check
