Spinhenge is down -- perhaps one of the drive problems that seem to be making their rounds on BOINC projects these days.

The home page and web server are ok, but no uploads or downloads -- for 12 hours so far.

Simap appears to be down. I can't report or contact the project in BOINC or by web browser. The site
http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ also says it is offline when I checked just before posting.

CPDN main project - important database maintenance on Monday 28 February 2011

The CPDN main project database will offline on Monday in order to facilitate some much-needed maintenance.

During the maintenance period the BOINC forums will be inaccessible, it will not be possible to create accounts or attach new computers to the project and all scheduler requests will fail (this includes uploading trickles, reporting completed tasks and requesting new work). Upload of result files will be unaffected.

The aim is to reduce the time taken for the database backup which is thought to be the current cause both of the BOINC board and scheduler being unavailable for long periods and the slow connections from clients when they are.

The work will take many hours because it involves running the tortuously slow backup script and then archiving old data in the existing (huge) tables.

The database will certainly be offline all of Monday and possibly longer. Updates on the progress will be posted in the News thread on the phpBB forum.

The scheduled database maintenance has started and it is anticipated that service will be restored within 36 hours.

Unfortunately the backup script (which takes 16 hours to run) failed overnight. It will have to be run again before the planned database maintenance can start, so it will be at least another 36 hours before the database will be running again.

The database backup has been completed but the maintenance is taking longer than expected. It is now unlikely that the database will be back up before Friday afternoon. If there any further delays the down time could extend into next week.

CPDN main project

We are now into the final stages of the database maintenance.

Although the BOINC message board is back online the scheduler is still disabled. This means it is still not possible to create accounts or attach new computers to the project and all scheduler requests will continue to fail (this includes uploading trickles, reporting completed tasks and requesting new work).

Upload of most result files is possible, but the final upload file generated by HadAM3P regional tasks (*_13.zip) can't be uploaded at the moment. These files contain the restart dumps required to generate follow-up tasks and are sent to climateapps1.oucs.ox.ac.uk.

By keeping these features disabled the project team can make a direct comparison between the credits calculated before the old database was archived and those calculated using the optimised database.

The project will not be brought fully back to service until the project team are confident that the credit script is working correctly.

CPDN main project

The scheduler has been restarted and it is now possible to upload trickles, report completed tasks, request new work, create new accounts and attach new computers.

It is still not possible to upload the final file generated by HadAM3P regional tasks (*_13.zip) as climateapps1.oucs.ox.ac.uk is currently out of disk space. Jonathan is working to make more space available.

A significant number of users are currently affected by credit anomalies, mostly with credits below the level calculated before the database maintenance started. We've been here after previous major periods of database maintenance. As before these credit problems will be resolved as a background task by the project team.

CPDN main project

We are fairly sure that the problem which resulted in 5,429 CPDN users losing varying amounts of credit after the database work has been identified. Jonathan is working to fix this.

Jonathan and Milo are still working to make more space available on climateapps1 to allow completion of stalled uploads of HadAM3P regional restart dumps (the *_13.zip files).

Lab-wide Power Outage
Our building's electrical systems are being tested this week. To avoid power surges we will be shutting everything down Tuesday afternoon (after the usual weekly outage) and coming back up Wednesday morning once the tests are finished. All servers/web sites will be down during this time. 14 Mar 2011 | 21:46:40 UTC

SETI is having a bit of a problem with new work distribution. Resends and ghost resends seems to be working. New work and server stats seem to be down for over 24h.

Dnetc is 'zero crediting' all workunits -- problem apparently surfaced about 20 hours ago -- it is not clear that the folks over there are aware of the problem as there has been no feedback from Sesef over there regarding this.

At this point (10am PDT) one can assume that the Dnetc folks are aware of a problem as the site is offline (including the home page). Between the 'no credit' phase and the fully offline phase Dnetc has been in 'outage mode' now for about 34 hours. Hopefully once Dnetc resurfaces it will be running 'normally' and folks will be graced with information regarding the outage.

The folks over at Dnetc were able to correct problems (both hardware and software) after about 1 day and a half last week, but seem to have encountered either a repeat of the hardware problem or something equally showstopping. As a result, the project has been totally offline for the past 30 hours. Like a number of the smaller projects, when they go offline, that includes even the home page. Hopefully they will get things resolved and in a way that doesn't leave the project in fragile mode.

Good then that I run them on my CPU these days only. Still got one of their multi-threaded tasks to work through. ;-)
