The Seti upload server has been disabled since Friday. Today I asked Eric Korpela what was wrong with it. Here's what he answered me:

The http daemon keeps dieing in a way that it won't restart (due to a hung process). I've been trying to figure out the problem.

Eric has fixed the problem with the Seti upload server. Do know that it is now being hammered severely, so you can still have problems uploading until the amount of data coming in goes down a bit.

The Einstein project seems to be missing all of a sudden. We're trying to find out what happened.

Answer from Bernd Machenschalk:
Looks like the filesystem of the server ran full. David is working on it.

Einstein seems to have returned from its own private black hole.

MilkyWay seems to be down.
No access to the site, either.

Looks like they had a database crash. I've asked for an update.

It was a database crash. According to Eric they're now waiting for the tables to be rebuilt. Last time around that took 24 hours, so expect that amount of time this time as well.

It seems like Seti's problems are continuing. Their forums are very slow again, if they load at all. This happened prior to the last database crash as well, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are down, or go down any moment.

Well SETI appears to have company -- Collatz went offline about 10 hours ago (1PM PDT).

Greetings Jord,

Well, it's just another typical weekend in the land of SETI. The project Cricket graph is flat lined. The website Cricket graph shows some activity, but there is no getting to it.

Gonna be a lonnnnnnnng weekend! :(

And I was hoping to hit another milestone today or tomorrow. :(

Keep on BOINCing...! (if you can) :)

Yep.... SET is definately down... COMPLETELY. The servers want weekends off, and are rebelling again.

Collatz came back up this morning -- not the projects fault, they lost network connectivity entirely.

As to SETI -- I really think they should be encouraging folks to have multiple projects. Given the very large user population they support, when things go bump in the night (and there are a LOT of things), some of the folks who are 'SETI-only' types get really frustrated. Then again, since some of those 'SETI-only' types appear to carry a bit of attitude toward other projects in general AND anyone who might vent their frustration when their only project encounters one of its all too frequent bumps, the atmosphere over in their message boards (when they are running) can get a bit testy.

I have taken to not posting over there myself, it just doesn't work for me.

Just was able to upload to SETI & SETI Beta. I suspect it will still be some time before things get back to normal.

I noticed that SETI seemed to come to life momentarily, then disappeared again.
The Server/Daemon History Page showed all systems GO at 02:00 UTC, then totally gone again shortly thereafter.

It has been a troubled holiday weekend -- Einstein went AWOL in the past hour or so -- can't access the home page, let alone the rest of the servers.

Seti's pages and forums are available. Uploads might be possible as well. Downloads and reports aren't.

The Einstein problem is that the filesystem server has filled up again. The admin there has taken time off of their free day to go fix it as well. Thank you, David. :-)
