Milkyway@Home is off line. We don't know what happened.

Talk about quick reactions. They are back up.

Hydrogen@Home progress report. Its forums are back up. The scheduler is back up. And that's about it. No front page (last I checked) and no work from project.

(Front page works if you clear your cache... so if you see "It works!", clear cache or force reload)

The messages are from a couple of weeks back as Jack worked with a very old backup.

Looks like Milkyway dropped off again. Probably more server problems.

They came back up a couple of hours later. Another server crash.
December 2, 2007 More Server Issues
The server locked up again, so we're taking a look into why it's doing this. Hopefully it will be sorted out shortly.

The CPDN upload server climateapps3 has filled up and Milo is moving data from it overnight. Until Monday 3 Dec some CPDN crunchers will find that their trickles and zip file uploads are refused. If this happens to your CPDN model you should if possible suspend network activity for at least 12 hours.

The server status of all ClimatePrediction projects can be checked here:

The CPDN servers are now all functional again.

The Seasonal Attribution Project has stopped handing out new SAP models; as always, crunchers are asked to please complete models they already have. There is now no reason to attach to SAP or try to download work from it. It is hoped that similar SAP-type models will fairly soon be made available as an extra choice on the main CPDN project. Their aim will be to investigate particular climatic events in other years in other regions.

Change the message to "No work from project - and there won't be!" :P

Found this warning on Seti news.

Outage Warning: This Thursday (December 6) around 15:00 PST (23:00 UTC) we will be shutting the entire project down all night for lab-wide electrical repairs. All web sites and data servers will be off line until Friday morning.

This will mean that the BOINC server will go off line as well, meaning that the front page, forums, Alpha site, SVN and Trac will be unavailable during that time.

Hydrogen@Home has returned. The main page and forums are back up, the rest will follow slowly. Good work there Jack! With thanks to TJM for the help. :-)

There was a full unplanned CPDN server outage on Wed Dec 5, which Tolu has now put right. CPDN credits will be delayed for a day on the stats sites.

There was an SAP server outage this afternoon for a few hours due to a power cut in the Atmospheric Physics department in Oxford. The SAP servers are now fixed and functioning.

Are there any news on XtremLab's availaility?

yeah the site says they will be back up in JULY 2007!
it is a little after that.....

Could be a typo.. December 12th is a Friday.

XtremLab is possibly not absolutely dead. They've probably noticed the typo and changed the ETA to "Our server is temporarily closed. It will be reopened in a near futur."

Yes, I've noticed it. Comes possibly from their French nature :-)

CPDN and BBC credits haven't been updated by the server today. They therefore haven't been exported (ie reported) to the stats sites either. None of us will lose any credits; I expect the servers will update them all tomorrow.

MalariaControl.Net has warned about an upcoming outage:

Nicolas Maire wrote:
The project server will be shut down from Dec 27, 0700 UTC to Dec 28, 1730 UTC because of maintenance work at the computing centre. We plan the following steps to minimize the impact of this.
We will:

  • starting on Dec 20, increase the deadline for all workunits (the delay_bound) from 3.5 days to 10 days until the server is restarted.
  • increase the maximum number of workunits that can be sent to a host per day.
  • temporarily reduce the timespan that completed workunits are kept in the database.



We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Have a nice Holiday
Nick

Message 14493 - Posted: 24 Dec 2007, 12:25:10 UTC

There have been two recent problems on the CPDN servers while Milo has been extracting large amounts of model data for the researchers.

* When trying to upload trickles, the message that there's an HTTP error has occurred. It doesn't mean that the CPDN server is down, or that your internet connection has failed. The best idea is to suspend network activity in BOINC manager and allow it again a short time later.

* There have been delays with credits. Don't worry - we will all receive our full credits eventually even if they're sometimes late!

These problems may or may not continue during the holiday period.

The SAP servers are down. Milo has been informed but as it's the weekend he may not be able to investigate the problem until Monday. If you don't want to suspend BOINC network activity and have a SAP model close to completion, you could suspend the model and let the computer crunch tasks from other projects until the server problem is resolved.

The CPDN and BBC servers are functioning normally.

CPDN server problems always seem to happen on Fridays. The CPDN upload servers climateapps3 and uploadatm are down. This will affect trickles and zip file uploads of some CPDN members.

If you only crunch CPDN and encounter this problem, which will show up in BOINC manager messages or by a 10-year zip file unable to upload from the Transfers tab of BOINC manager, the best idea is to suspend network activity using the BOINC manager Activity menu.

For multi-project crunchers who don't want to suspend network activity, the best advice is to prevent your CPDN model producing a 10-year zip file. Set CPDN to No New Tasks and suspend your model in the Tasks tab before it reaches December of a year ending in 0 eg 1970, 2030.

We may have to wait until Monday for this server problem to be fixed. CPDN server status can be checked here:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/server_status.php

This server problem does not affect CPDN beta, SAP or BBC members.

I cannot open up the CPDN-BOINC, BBC or CPDN-beta forums at the moment. If you need to post to CPDN, go to its independent forum which is hosted on a different server at the Open University. Separate registration is required.

Milo has just got the upload server climateapps3 going again. The problem occurred because the disk was nearly full.
