Fgate at Full Capacity

All the hardware issues that fgate developed after the reinstall have now been solved, and fgate is on line at full capacity. Logins to fgate are now managed through the campus directory, thus the cluster is accessible using the Georgia Tech ID. Jobs are managed by a PBS/Torque batch queue with the Moab scheduler. Please refer to the new wiki page for fgate for info on the new configuration.



Uptime: 34 days
/home directory usage: 65% (3.9 TB available)
/backups directory usage: 100%

Utilization for period from: 11/17/2011 to: 12/15/2011
