hi, the cluster is usable again and functioning totally normal. i successfully added the new cluster node, giving is 16 more slots. however, the new node only has 128GB of RAM. this might seem a lot at the beginning, but it is not. 128GB of RAM / 16 slots = 8GB per slot!! so, please keep an eye on how much RAM you request. if you submitted a lot of jobs and by looking at the logfiles realize, that you requested too much, it is very easy to change it: qalter "name" -l h_vmem=4G sets the memory request to 4GB for all jobs with the name "name". this only applies to jobs not currently running. qalter "*" -l h_vmem=4G does the same for all your scheduled jobs. so, have fun and if you run into problems, let me know! cheers, thomas -- Dr. Thomas Hartmann CIMeC - Center for Mind/Brain Sciences Università degli Studi di Trento via delle Regole, 101 38060 Mattarello (TN) ITALY Tel: +39 0461 28 2779 Fax: +39 0461 28 3066 Email: thomas.hartmann@xxxxxxxx Homepage: http://sites.google.com/site/obobcimec/ "I am a brain, Watson.
