Karst (karst.uits.iu.edu) is Indiana University's newest high-throughput computing cluster. Designed to deliver large amounts of processing capacity over long periods of time, Karst's system architecture provides IU researchers the advanced performance needed to accommodate high-end, data-intensive applications critical to scientific discovery and innovation. Karst also serves as a "condominium cluster" environment for IU researchers, research labs, departments, and schools.
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.
