Each student runs a virtual server that is accessed via jupyterhub. Our jupyterhub server is managed by @arnsong from Research Computing. Each server mounts an S3 bucket that will copy over data and notebooks from a central cloud storage S3 bucket. Every time you launch your server, data should synchronize with the central storage and copy over any changes. However, sometimes this process doesn’t complete and you will not have the most up to date files. So far this seem to be more likely to occur whenever there is a big change in data (i.e., we upload a large dataset to the central storage).
How do I sync my jupyterhub server?
