  4. Important message about SCRATCH...

Dear Users,
This is to inform you that the area $CINECA_SCRATCH on Galileo cluster is currently 99% full. This is affecting users’ jobs and access to the filesystem, resulting in a drop of stability and performance for everyone.
We kindly ask to all users who have received the scratch usage alert e-mail to free up space by deleting as much as possible of their data.
We strongly remind all users that the SCRATCH area is conceived just for temporary storage of users’ files and therefore we recommend to keep its occupancy as low as possible, so as to avoid issues with users’ jobs and work.
For long term storage of files and dirs, please use $WORK and/or $DRES resources that are more suitable for medium and long-term storage. For more info please consult our dedicated HPC Users’ Guide. In particular here:
Best Regards,HPC User Support @ CINECA
