Maintenance now complete for Amarel, Perceval, NM3 (+ important notes re: /scratch, /home)

OARC Research Computing Users,
Maintenance for the Amarel, Perceval, and NM3 systems is now complete. Thanks for your patience!
The maintenance ran a few hours longer than expected because it comprised an unusually complex set of tasks spanning multiple campuses (more of an overhaul to improve performance for a widely distributed, rapidly growing system). Some debugging is still underway.
Details about the maintenance work that was completed and further updates can be found at https://oarc.rutgers.edu/systems-status
** Important notes:
(1) The /scratch filesystem has been redesigned to improve performance across our various campuses. Files that were previously stored in /scratch can be found in /oldscratch. The contents of /oldscratch will be available until December 14, so please move any data you wish to save.
(2) The contents of /home/projects can now be found in /projects (i.e., the link to /projects under /home has been removed).
As always, please let us know if you have questions or if you encounter problems: email@example.com
