Planned maintenance in June and August 2023
Please note that the Euler cluster will be undergoing maintenance for several days in June and August 2023:
- Monday 5 June (morning) to Wednesday 7 June (morning): Hardware and software upgrades of the cluster's core components (admin nodes, login nodes, file servers) and migration of some data to a new storage system.
- Monday 7 August (morning) to Friday 11 August (evening): Replacement of the water-cooling elements that were installed with the first generation of Euler — Euler I — ten years ago.
Both maintenances require a complete shutdown of Euler. The cluster's login nodes and file servers will be inaccessible during these times.
This is a pre-announcement to give you enough time to prepare for these downtimes. The exact times will be communicated 1-2 weeks prior to each maintenance.
As usual, batch queues will be progressively inactivated in the days/hours before the downtime to ensure that all nodes are empty when the cluster is shut down.
— Sorry for the inconvenience.
5-7 June 2023
Please note that the Euler cluster will be undergoing maintenance to perform hardware and software upgrades of the cluster's core components (admin nodes, login nodes, file servers) and migration of some data to a new storage system.
Euler will be OFFLINE from 07:00 Monday 5 June until 11:00 Wednesday 7 June
As usual, batch queues will be inactivated prior to the maintenance to ensure that no jobs get killed when the cluster is shut down. Short jobs can still run until the cluster is offline. There is no action required on your part.
Sorry for the inconvenience
Please watch this page for regular updates before, during and after the maintenance.

- The login nodes of Euler are again open. Users can access their data and already submit jobs (they will stay in the queue until the queues are activated). We are still running some tests and will progressively reactivate the queues starting tomorrow morning.
- 2022-06-07 09:25
- The maintenance has finished. The short queues are open and we will progressively activate the longer queues during the day.
