Modular Data Center Electrical Work

[Update 2019-05-17 ] The MDC electrical work was completed successfully and Flux has been returned to full production.


The Modular Data Center (MDC), which houses Flux, Flux Hadoop, and other HPC resources, has an electrical issue which requires us to bring the power usage below 50% for the some racks in order to resolve the problem.  In order to do this, we have put reservations on some of the nodes to reduce the power draw so the issue can be fixed by ITS Data Centers.  Once we hit the target power level and the issue is resolved, we will remove the reservations and return Flux and Flux Hadoop back into full production level.
