Machines: bigdipper
Start Time: 08/28/2015 -- 16:00

    Reason: The Bigdipper storage silo will be rebooted in an effort to clear slow
            system response times.  All pending batch_stage processes will be placed 
            on hold during this reboot.  Any file copies to and from $ARCHIVE and
            projects will need to be restarted following the reboot.

30 Jul 2015 Emergency Downtime

Last Updated: Thu, 30 Jul 2015 -
Machines: bigdipper
Start Time: 07/30/2015 -- 12:00
  End Time: 07/30/2015 -- 13:30
    Reason: ARCHIVE file system server emergency reboot

The bigdipper server supporting the ${ARCHIVE} file system was having
 intermittent issues and our system admins determined a full reboot of
 the system was required to restore services to normal operation.

The ${ARCHIVE} provides long term mass storage for user data at ARSC.
 The file system is available from pacman, fish and the Linux workstations.
 The system is connected to tape drives in the automated tape library.
 Together with the library, bigdipper has a capacity of 7 petabytes (7,000 TB).

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,  and please 
 contact us if you have any questions.
