Eos cluster expansion status

The first phase of the cluster expansion has been completed. The 48 12-core Westmere nodes are now available for the contributing parties. Currently the Infinband interconnect bandwidth is limited between the Westmere and Nehalem nodes. We expect to receive the remaining Infiniband cables by the end of the month and will schedule another downtime.

The batch system and GPFS software have also been upgraded. Batch jobs are now required to specify memory requirements. Please let us know if you encounter any problems.
