Big Red II is Indiana University's main system for high-performance parallel computing. With a theoretical peak performance (Rpeak) of one thousand trillion floating-point operations per second (1 petaFLOPS), Big Red II is among the world's fastest research supercomputers.
Users may be experiencing intermittent difficulties with HPS (High Performance Systems) including Big Red II, Karst, Karst Desktop, Mason, Research Database Complex (RDC), and Carbonate. Administrators are working with the vendors and IU network engineers to restore service. Recent updates have again improved overall network and Geode stability. The next update is estimated to be available by Monday, September 25.
This issue may affect users logging into HPS and those mounting home directories via SMB (Samba). HPS home directories and SMB (Samba) clients on Geode are affected.
