The Einstein@home project server will be shut down tomorrow (Thursday) for a few hours around noon UTC for relocation. The database will continue to run, so this shouldn't take long.

Short downtime Thursday

I see the scheduler is offline this morning (Saturday -- 10AM PDT) -- is this an unexpected consequence of the very short Thursday shutdown, or something else?

Last week Thursday I just moved the web server so that is not the problem. A disk failed in the database server today and one of the raid arrays is rebuilding. The scheduler goes offline when the database is overloaded. Things should go back to normal once the rebuild is done. I don't know exactly how long this will take.

Ah -- I see, thanks for the

Ah -- I see, thanks for the quick reply. At the moment, server status reports all green, but the server status report must be a political candidate as that report is not borne out by update requests which reflect the server being in maintenance mode.

I sincerely hope the drive problems are resolved, one would hate to see Einstein as just about the largest currently full running project (what with SETI being in an extended mode of receive only not send due to its major reconstruction this coming month), have anything like the sort of duress that SETI has endured for the past month or more.

The rebuild is now done. It may take a little while for the database to catch up.

In addition the ABP download

In addition the ABP download server was down for a few hours yesterday, causing the ABP workunit generators to malfunction. We brought the server up again, so data for the ABP work can be downloaded again, but fixing the workunit generation will take some more time.
