Please see the Downloads Page to get started.

  • Release notes are available
  • Support for ZFS has been updated to version
  • HTCondor roll (former Condor) is at release 8.2.8
  • Also included is support for perfSONAR, where cluster builders can decide to install the full GUI (recommended for a standalone perfSONAR host) or just the command tools. Customizing what is installed for perfSONAR gives four attributes that control which elements of perfSONAR are installed on hosts.
  • New to 6.2 is the ability to reconfigure the fully qualified domain name of your cluster (FQDN). There are some caveats to the process.
  • When building a frontend on networks with jumbo frames, the cluster builder can specify the mtu on the “build” command line.
