I get the impression that the file server is struggling at the moment

File downloads are often taking more than one attempt to succeeed, and it has taken over an hour to *start* downloading files in the last few days.

I am not talking about transfer time once the downloads start - I mean that I am getting messages like the following in the message window

Have I got a network error at my end that is causing this, or are other people also seeing this?

Has the Rosetta fileserver got any known network issues at present? (Remind me - is it in fact the same box as the scheduler server, or different hardware?)

Is Rosetta once again becoming a victim of its own success, and the fileservers becoming close to overload?

This counts as a minor irritant for me, but must be very annoying to any dial-up users who are getting similar delays downloading files.

Same problem here. I have 5 hours to go before running out of work. No doubt the sun will be rising soon on the Pacific coast and they will be able to sort out the problem.

Ditto. Every task and accompanying downloads are "Temp Failed", for 2 days now. They eventually complete but my message log is getting looonnnggg. Almost all of my messages end with "system connect" though my internet connection is OK.

Same problem here, hopefully they will wake up on the West Coast soon so they can kick the server or something.

I'm getting a list of files to download and my uploads are working fine, it just doesn't actually download the files...

I thought so as well, it downloaded a few files but then stopped again. So I think there is still a problem, stuff is going out from the server in trickles.

Our download servers were having some issues which required a reboot to resolve. They should be okay now. Let us know if you are still having download problems.

two of the download servers had similar hiccups - kernel faults - resulting in two of the four IP addresses being unresponsive to download requests. Sorry 'bout that, we're working on making things more robust.... -KEL
