Filesystem issue


The issue is now resolved. /scratch remains under heavy load from thousands of computing jobs, so performance may vary. We’ll keep monitoring things.

Please make sure to take advantage of the node-local $L_SCRATCH storage location whenever possible, especially when sharing data across multiple nodes is not necessary (more information is available at https://www.sherlock.stanford.edu/docs/storage/)


We’re currently working on an issue with /scratch.

Symptoms are hanging commands when accessing certain parts of the file system, jobs stuck in COMPLETING/CG state, and potential errors when logging in.

We expect the issue to be resolved shortly.
