[downtime] soak.cs.princeton.edu Downtime, Thursday, August 23, 2018, 09:00-10:30

Date: Thursday, August 23, 2018 (09:00-10:30)

Who is affected:
All users of the CS department computing using soak.cs.princeton.edu

What is happening:
soak.cs.princeton.edu will be shutdown for replacement of a defective DIMM.

Why is it happening:
Hardware monitoring has indicated that a DIMM in this system is in a
pre-failure state and likely to fail soon. So as to avoid an unplanned
failure that may threaten the stability of the host, we are scheduling this
outage to replace the failing DIMM preemptively.

We will post updates to the status page: http://www.csstaff.org
as necessary.

If this downtime will cause you undue hardship, please contact
csstaff@cs.princeton.edu immediately, so we can discuss options to reduce
any negative impact. Your patience is appreciated.
