System Status

  • August 4th, 4:55PM — The PMACS cluster is up and functioning as expected. Despite the time we spent with IBM engineers over the past few days in debugging the issue, we were unable to determine the exact root cause. We will continue to monitor the cluster for problems and alert IBM should these problems reoccur.  If users notice any performance or filesystem related issues, please email us at pmacshpc@med.upenn.edu.  Thank you for your continued patience and support.
