Many of you have noticed that the BeeGFS storage has not been performing correctly and that interactions with files and data on the scratch area have been extremely slow. We are working with ClusterVision to identify the issue and resolve this. We will do what we can to avoid any further disruption to the service. I shall report back once I know further details.
