The retention period of files on the Argon HPC system-wide /nfsscratch filesystem has been reduced from 60 days to 40 days after they are created.
The retention period was temporarily reduced to 40 days this fall, when usage of /nfsscratch increased significantly. Since restoring the retention period to 60 days, /nfsscratch has consistently reached capacity, which prevents jobs from running.
The retention policy for node-specific /localscratch filesystems is not affected by this change.
All scratch filesystems policies are available as part of the Argon Scratch Filesystems documentation.
