Last update on .

Users have reported an unusual volume and variety of FastX problems over the last couple of days. So far we have been unable to determine the precise cause, or narrow the problems down to any particular host in the cluster. Therefore, as part of our ongoing attempt to diagnose and fix the problems, we are going to reboot the entire cluster at 12pm today (Friday the 14th).

Any users currently connected to FastX will lose their sessions, so save your work and log out before noon. (This reboot will not affect anyone with plain ssh sessions.)

Apologies for the inconvenience, especially during the height of shopping period.
