titleGadi /scratch Essential Maintenance Wed 16 June 2021 - COMPLETED

Gadi /scratch maintenance was completed ahead of schedule and normal operations resumed at 12:15am AEST . For more information about this maintenance is available on the page, Scratch Essential Maintenance – Wed 16 June 2021.

/scratch Hard and Soft Quotas Reset - IMPORTANT

Due to capacity limitations on /scratch and to ensure overall stability, the vendor has advised NCI that hard quotas on /scratch must be reset to match the project (soft) quotas. This change will result in strict enforcement of project quotas. There will no longer be a grace period on /scratch if a project is over quota. 

This quota policy change will take effect on Thursday 17 June when operations resume following /scratch maintenance. From 17 June, projects that are over quota on /scratch will be blocked from running jobs. 

At present the /scratch file system is heavily subscribed, with a number of projects over quota. System monitoring has identified a large number of user files on /scratch which have not been accessed recently and should be removed or relocated to persistent storage. All users are encouraged to clean up unused or unneeded files on scratch as soon as possible. /scratch is intended for temporary working files only.
