Disruption 2017-05-02

Event

Due to the failure of a storage component, the integrity of the file system /scratch has been compromised. This means that many files on the file system have been damaged. Large files (> 512 KB) are more likely to be affected than small files (< 512 KB). The larger a file is in terms of multiples of 512 KB, the higher the probability of damage.
