The dates listed below indicate when this page was updated. Some individual changes may have been implemented shortly before the date listed.

February 24, 2023

  • Improved performance of job status and usage pages.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from downloading multiple files from the Storage tab with Control+Click or Shift+Click.

January 30, 2023

  • Added inline notifications for job status updates.

  • Added CONVERGE 3.0.27.

  • Added the commands listed below to the CLI. These commands are still under development and will be documented when testing is complete. If you want to use these commands during the testing phase, you can view their help text with the --help option:

    horizon files bulk-upload
    horizon files bulk-download

January 6, 2023

  • Increased performance of scratch space attached to compute instances.

  • Added CONVERGE 3.1.8.

November 15, 2022

  • CONVERGE Horizon now uses the HPC-X message-passing interface (MPI) for all jobs. HPC-X offers superior performance for all single-node jobs. HPC-X does not perform well for multi-node jobs, so the latter option has been temporarily disabled. Multi-node job support remains an area of active development.

  • You can now run jobs on CONVERGE Horizon with a custom CONVERGE executable. This option is available under Advanced Options on the job submission form.

  • You can now use your existing RLM license server to run jobs on CONVERGE Horizon instead of purchasing on-demand licenses.

November 4, 2022

  • By default, CONVERGE Horizon no longer compresses output files when copying them to object storage. You can check Compress output files on the job submission form if you prefer working with compressed files.

  • Updated the CLI options and default behavior for horizon job download. By default, CONVERGE Horizon will attempt to download the final_output folder that is created when using uncompressed files. To download compressed files, you must use the --tarball option.

  • CONVERGE Horizon now copies the most recent restart files to the preview folder while a job is running.

  • Added horizon job scp to the CLI. You can use this command to download files from the compute instance while a job is running.

  • Updated the CLI to include Windows support for horizon job ssh (requires Windows 10 Version 1903 or later).

  • Reduced the size of the access node to two cores with 16 GB of RAM and 400 GB of storage. This reduces the cost of the access node to approximately $40 per month.

  • Added CONVERGE 3.1.7.

  • You can now download multiple files from the Storage tab simultaneously. Use Control+Click to select multiple files or Shift+Click to select a range of files.
