Having a hard time installing packages, running scripts, etc

Hi there,

I’ve been experiencing significant lag any time I do anything, from installing a package in conda to running a command. I’m not sure if it’s a problem on the cluster side or not. Even running a shell script outside of miniconda takes a significant amount of time (I’ve ran the same script before and it took less than a minute); see below:

I’m mainly getting frozen at a bunch of import statements; after getting through those the program runs quickly. I am wondering how this can be resolved. Thanks!

The /project file system is slow at the moment and is not performing well for directories with lots of small files (like Conda envs and Git repos). I recommend installing Conda envs to your /home1 directory.
