The /gfs/* file systems are also now available. NEC has copied your files from the sx616 file systems to the gfs file systems, so data should be the same in both locations. sx617 data is not replicated on /gfs. the gfs file systems appear to the tx7 as local and native XFS file systems.
gfs is accessed like NFS. So on both sx616 and sx617:
tx7gfs:/nmoc/keep 50G 128M 50G 0% /gfs/nmoc/keep
tx7gfs:/nmoc/rt 150G 79M 150G 0% /gfs/nmoc/rt
tx7gfs:/nmoc/tmp 50G 3.3M 50G 0% /gfs/nmoc/tmp
tx7gfs:/bmdata 50G 15G 35G 30% /gfs/bmdata
tx7gfs:/csdata 100G 1.7M 100G 0% /gfs/csdata
tx7gfs:/bmrcshare 50G 3.4M 50G 0% /gfs/bmrcshare
There has been some inconsistency in the treatment of SX6 problem reports. In order to provide the best service we advise the following conventions are recommended.
Submitting SX-6 problems through req, or via <email@example.com> with cc:<firstname.lastname@example.org> are the best methods to ensure visibility.
Web submissions are preferred as email submissions require a manual transcription into req.
If you MUST submit SX6 problems by email rather than via the web interface, please use a subject: line as follows:
SX6-Compilers <descriptive text> --> for compiler and cross systems issues
SX6-Network <descriptive text> --> communications issues including the HQ-NEC trunk
SX6-NQSII <descriptive text> --> all scheduling issues
SX6-OS <descriptive text> --> all SUPER-UX issues
SX6-Other <descriptive text> --> issues not falling into the above categories
If you use the web interface at http://intra.hpsc.csiro.au/cgi-bin/wreq/req (linked from http://intra.hpsc.csiro.au/ as "Report a problem to HPCCC via web" ) you can set the System, Problem type, and Priority, and can set it as a "todo" item for a particular HPCCC staff member or NEC apps* or systems group.
* Note that for the SX6 conversion, NEC apps should not be directly "employed on your problem" because their workload is being managed by HPCCC.
In both the "req"(default) list and the "Systems" list you will find that Len has added the SX-6 and TX-7 to the "System:" menu choices. There were already categories under the "Problem Type:" menu for Compiler/System Software ; Scheduling/ERS ; Network/Communication ; Other; and he has added NQS to the list (to cover NQS for SX-5 systems and NQSII for SX-6) although some NQS problems turn out to be scheduling/ERS problems.
