Archiving from Mogon II

Dear Users,

we have set up our archiving scripts on Mogon II, such that the Mogon I and II setup is identical.

You will find further information in our wiki.

Frühjahrsputz / spring-cleaning

Dear Users,

A penny saved is a penny got.

Therefore: Many homedirectories still contain an old directory named "lc2.home". This, lc2 users might recall, is the transferred content from the old lc2 cluster. We would like you to consider to either delete the old stuff or to archive it.

The same is true for a number of old "lc2.<projectname>" directories in the respective project directories.

Documentation concerning archiving from mogon can be found here: https://mogonwiki.zdv.uni-mainz.de/dokuwiki/archiving:tsm

Why should you care?

  • You save some bits of your file system quota.
  • You adhere to the DfG or BMBF requirements (or other parties requireing you to backup data).

Troubleshooting 101

Dear Users,

In order to shoot your troubles (with job scripts) you ought to know first. Right? Alas, SLURM is a little bit obfuscating sometimes when job scripts do not use proper job steps. Some hints can be found in our wiki.

Also, be sure to check for available modules rather than compiling standard software yourself. In case some software is missing, you may use our little form to ask for a software or library to be installed. When you report issues with a software we installed - at least we know what you are talking about.

Valgrind on Mogon

Dear Developers,

If interested in finding memory leaks or finding cache misses you might heard of the Valgrind Tool Suite . This tool suite can be used on Mogon, too. You can find the relevant documentation (and the reference to the really good Valgrind documentation), here.
