Cornell University (in fact, Ithaca, NY) suffered a power outage today. A very small number of electronic equipment, which unfortunately included a (quite old) network switch moderating internet access to ECCO and SDS, failed, and are currently being replaced. Your access to ECCO and SDS will be affected for an unknown length until we can manually reconfigure the network to alternate hardware. We will keep you posted.
Matlab R2015b is now available on ECCO. Note that the default version remains unchanged, Matlab R2015b can be requested in custom qsub jobs by issuing the module command
module load matlab/R2015b
Note that Matlab on SDS remains unchanged, as our license there does not cover upgrades anymore. Please contact us should this be a problem.
Ox (http://www.doornik.com/ox/) has been upgraded on ECCO to 7.1. It is available on SDS upon request only.
Sunday, February 14, 2016 between 5:00 AM – 7:00 AM, Cornell IT will be upgrading the core routers on campus to improve campus network connections. During this time there may be intermittent interruptions in connections to the wired and wireless networks on campus. Although the ECCO and SDS computing systems will continue to operate, and jobs continue to run, access to the systems will be unavailable during the core router upgrade. Please plan accordingly.
We provide packaging support for JAGS (Just Another Gibbs Sampler). Version 4.1 was recently released, and binary packages are now available. More details at https://www.ncrn.cornell.edu/software/jags-for-rhel-centos-opensuse/.
