Recently our database server has been crushed repeatedly resulting in webserver slowdowns. Tracking all of this down has been a real challenge. This AM it was noticed that during every slowdown someone was trying to 'merge' two client hosts. After eliminating everything else as a possibility we were left to wonder if this merging of hosts could really be a problem. After disasterously wasteful searching of many unrelated issues, it was discovered that SETI@home had this very problem last month [see the entry for February 1, 2006 on the SETI@home Technical News Page]. We have disabled host merges until we can upgrade the database software.
