CISL informs users of system news and important status updates such as outages and maintenance periods through the Daily Bulletin newsletter and the Notifier service. See those sections below for how to subscribe.
CISL makes every effort to perform routine maintenance without taking systems out of service. If downtime is required, routine system maintenance is performed during the times shown. Urgent updates are scheduled with as much advance notice as possible. The schedule of planned downtimes for the week is announced in the Daily Bulletin.
|Yellowstone||0700-1300||1st Tuesday, if needed
|Geyser/Caldera||0700-1300||1st Tuesday, if needed|
|GLADE||0700-1300||1st Tuesday, if needed|
|Janus||0800-1700||1st and 3rd Wednesday, if needed|

All new CISL email addresses ([your UCAR username]@ucar.edu) are added automatically to the Daily B mailing list. You can change your Daily B preferences, subscribe, or unsubscribe online.
The Notifier service provides a near-real-time feed of system status changes and other updates, so it is the best way to learn about status changes, particularly unscheduled outages. You can also log in to check the calendar.
New users are subscribed automatically to the “CISL Status” Notifier list and receive notices about NCAR supercomputers, storage systems, and support services. The CISL User Services Section manages notices posted to the CISL Status list to ensure that they are relevant to users.
To fine-tune your Notifier subscriptions, log in to Notifier. Keep in mind that if you unsubscribe from all Notifier lists, you will not receive timely system status information. If you opt out of the CISL Status list, we strongly recommend subscribing to at least some of the following lists: Yellowstone, Geyser and Caldera, HPSS, and HPC Support Services. (Many other lists are targeted primarily at UCAR staff or UCAR system administrators.)
