Dear Users,
due to the extraordinary heat wave hitting Bologna, the cooling system has issues in efficiently dissipating the produced heat. In order to prevent the abrupt failures of the servers, we are forced to reduce the production completely on Galileo and partially on Marconi-SKL in the time window 12:30-18:30 during the weekend. The  compute nodes which will remain available for batch processing in this time window, will work at approximately half the clock rate, implying longer duration for your jobs. 
We apologize for the inconvenience,
