An opt-in node status notification service is available for Farber users. This service sends an email notification when any nodes in your workgroup transition between two of the following states:

  • offline: down and not reachable.
  • online: up and reachable, but queues are disabled.
  • accepting-jobs: up, reachable and queues are enabled.

The service currently checks nodes' statuses at the top of every hour and delivers email notifications at the bottom of the hour. If you opt-in and any of your workgroup's nodes have changed state, you will receive ONE email message detailing the status changes.

To opt-in the node status notification service for your workgroup(s), send an e-mail to consult@udel.edu with subject="Node notification opt-in Farber" and make the first line of the message body be


farber.hpc.udel.edu has live resources: system status, job stats, system alerts.

UD IT HPC has Farber machine information: attributes including a database of node information, milestones, offline nodes and nodes disabled for maintenance.
