Topic 196836

It looks like the server that runs our replica DB went down this morning (UWM time). So far we (at AEI) don't have any other information from UWM, local admins have been notified.

The master DB is working ok, so the only things affected are the web pages (server status page, display of tasks and computers in "your account" etc.).

We'll keep you posted.

Is this the reason that there have been no stats reported today?

I think so as mine has not updated through BOINCstats but on site here under my account it has. Also http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/server_status.html only shows half a page and at the top says The database server is not accessible. Give them some time and everything should work out and be back up and running.

A central fileserver crashed

A central fileserver crashed @UWM over the weekend, affecting many internal and external services, including communication (mail, user accounts, software repositories etc.). Admins there are busy to get that working first, I guess they don't have much time to spend on Einstein@Home today.

There's some recent info in

There's some recent info in this post (apparently it's still down while they rebuild a large ZFS storage appliance).

The issue doesn't seem to be having much impact; I imagine there's going to be a blip for e@h volunteers on the stats sites when it comes back up, but otherwise is it affecting anything?

Well, that was kind of a "someone heard that someone else said that..."

Correct, so far basic operation of E@H seems to continue as usual.
Don't really mind any "blip effect" on the stats, beside that I usually use the stats (BOINCstats in particular) as an indicator if everything is running smoothly or if there are any issues, either project/server or client wise.
Without the stats pages updating properly, I have to check on each and every project now...

Not really.

These days we don't hear much from UWM, and every time we do it's rather bad news (more data being affected and possibly lost, one more service not working and can't be revived before yet another one is working etc.).

The last thing I heard was that they are trying to collect some storage they could back up some 90TB of data to from the crashed fileserver before trying various things to revive it.

They are all flattened out to keep the chaos within bounds. My rough estimate is that getting this fixed will take the rest of the week.

As Einstein@Home is working relatively good and reliably atm. I don't think they will bother spending a minute on it.

I'll try one or two things tomorrow to get at least the stats updated again.

Thanks for the update BM. Will just have to sit and wait until they get it fixed which is fine by me though others worry about stats being updated. "updated threw boinc stats not so much on E@H site stats"
