Next Maintenance

The next major maintenance window will be on 8 March 2021.

What are we going to do?

  • We will integrate an NVIDA Tesla T4 GPU into login node 2. We have purchased two GPUs, i.e., one for each login node. We will start with login node 2 because there are generally fewer users on it.

What does this mean for you?

  • We will have to take login node 2 offline in order to integrate the GPU.
  • All active connections, screens or tmux sessions will be terminated.
  • We hope that we can bring login node 2 back until noon.
  • After a testing phase, we will make the T4 available and announce details on it use.
