The database performance problems that are mentioned in the latest news item on the project home page are not completely resolved yet. The project admins are working on it, please stay tuned.

Seems to be a weekly weekend thing! Hopefully it will be fixed, or someone assigned to check it on weekends, soon.

I'm looking at the status

I'm looking at the status page for about 2 weeks and see that nothing has chaged yet. ABP assimilator is not working for a long time, file deleter doesn't work all this time. Soon or late it will get the server on its knees because of "no more free space available".

We still have serious

We still have serious problems with our database and are working on it. For the moment we disabled the scheduler (which was getting mostly DB connection errors anyway) to let the rest of the daemons catch up.

ABP1 validator and assimilator are running, however they will never again run on the machine the server status page has direct access to, so I removed the status signs from there.

Also due to DB connection problems the server status page isn't updated, but still shows an old status of 10:37 UTC.

I can neither get nor report

I can neither get nor report wu's at the moment. I assume this to be a known effect of the known outage and only mention it in case it was not!

Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.

Yes, this is to be expected whenever the scheduler is turned off.

Ok, the daemons have worked

Ok, the daemons have worked through the backlogs and the DB looks responsive again. I started the scheduler, let's see how things go.

Some of my hosts did get fresh work today. Until the problem is resolved (which will be announced on the home page), I'm afraid there will be phases where the scheduler is turned off and on repeatedly to see how the system reacts to different countermeasures for the problem until the performance is acceptable again. Please ignore the status page for the time being, generating it causes extra load on the database which would interfere with the problem solving right now.
