Yellowstone: Shorter retention period (Feedback) Mar 18 2015 - 10:45am to Mar 31 2015 - 10:45am CISL is providing users of Yellowstone and GLADE a chance to provide feedback on a proposed plan to ensure that sufficient space in GLADE scratch remains available. Anyone with comments, suggestions, or alternatives should send them to cislhelp@ucar.edu by March 31, 2015.

Yellowstone use has reached a point at which we do not expect to see major decreases in the amount of data being stored in the scratch file system. Since our December request that users remove unnecessary files, GLADE scratch has hovered around 85% full.

We propose that, if the scratch space reaches the 90% full mark again, CISL will take steps to reduce the file retention period from 90 to 75 days. Should that reduction become necessary, we will announce a two-week countdown to its implementation.

To maintain the 90-day retention period, we encourage users to evaluate their scratch holdings regularly and remove unnecessary files, and to use project spaces as an alternative, when appropriate. See the documentation on GLADE project spaces for more information.

Vidyo system DECOMMISSION on 3/31/15 Mar 31 2015 (All day) Given UCAR is shifting to Google Hangouts and other room based systems for videoconferencing needs, support for Vidyo at UCAR will stop on Tuesday, 31-Mar-2015.

If you haven't already, we encourage Vidyo users to visit


as well as


to familiarize themselves with Google Hangouts and Vidyo alternatives using UCAR/Google solutions.
We are targeting deactivation of ALL Vidyo components currently housed at UCAR so after 31-Mar-2015, Vidyo clients will no longer work and all VidyoPortals will no longer be available.

Also VidyoReplay will also be shut down so if you have any recordings on the VidyoReplay server that you would like to keep, please download them as soon as possible.

Please let us know at vidyo@ucar.edu if anyone has questions about Vidyo equivalencies under the new UCAR/Google offerings or a need for the Vidyo system to extend past March 2015.
