UPDATE GitLab maintenance window

We ran into some delays while attempting to clean up VM snapshots, the externally accessible instance, https://xgitlab.cels.anl.gov should resume service shortly after 13:00 CST, however the internally accessible instance https://gitlab.cels.anl.gov may take a while longer while maintenance continues.

We will send a follow-up all-clear email when both services are once again working as expected.

Update: Some services impacted by data center cooling issue.

We believe we’ve restored all CELS general compute services. For other issues (LCRC, ALCF, etc.) stay tuned to the respective user notification lists for updates.

Happy Friday!

Between 2 and 3 am, the lab’s central chilled water plant had a failure. The temperatures in the 240 data center spiked highly and a number of systems were affected by the heat.

Cooling was restored by 4:30, but we’ve been trying to get the affected services online. You may notice some problems reaching some servers or services, though most are back to normal at this point.

I’ll send an all-clear when we believe things are back fully.
