Welcome to our new technical news bulletin.

Today, we backed up our database and reconfigured the database server to match Seti@home's configuration. We'd like to thank Bob Bankay, Seti@home's database administrator, and David Hammer at Einstein@home for providing useful advice and copies of their my.cnf files. Soon, we will be testing database replication on two test servers (64 bit dual Opterons w/ 8 GB RAM) set up by Keith, and if the tests look good, they will be used for production. The benefits of using replication (as stated in the MySQL documentation) are 1) server robustness (if the master server goes down another can be used as a backup), 2) load balancing for non-updating queries, and 3) server maintenance (such as database backups) without disruptions.
