[downtime] CS System Downtime, Wednesday, March 22, 2017,

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 (07:00-08:00)

Who is affected:
All users of CS Department public login (cycles/portal) and
courselab systems.

What is happening:
During this window, these machines will be rebooted in order to clear some
defunct user processes which are interfering with some research work.

Why is it happening:
As some user processes have entered a defunct state, and as those processes
are preventing research work, they require a system reboot to clear.

We will post updates to the status page:
as necessary.

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