Yeah, I think the last WU I got was 6 hours ago. Still a good buffer here though.

I looked at the server status and it says everything is running, but 0 queued jobs and only 120 ready to send.

Does that mean that one or more of the servers are running but simply overloaded?

On the Server Status page, all but the first two programs are currently listed as \"Not running\".

Only that many ready to send usually means that only one of the two programs for creating workunits is running, and it can\'t keep up with the demand.

No queued jobs probably means something worse - the list of instructions for what workunits to create has run out, so until one of the scientists specifies some more, that only workunits that can be created are repeats of those that reached their deadlines and those that failed, but in a way that indicates that another try is worthwhile.

The last I looked, two of the machines in the server cluster had no programs at all listed as running, so I\'d guess that those two machines are either not running, or running but unable to exchange data with the other machines in the cluster.

At this time of the year, I wouldn\'t be surprised if it takes a few more days for enough of the staff to return from Christmas/New Year vacation to fix all of the server problems; past history suggests the Monday after New Year\'s Day as likely this year, though.
