All fixed! At least all the backed up stuff is now cleared out.

Atta boy Rosetta team, we knew you could do it!

Have a great week.

Cheers!

I\'ve got 12 queued that are now past the due date.
And another 14 waiting that haven\'t gone past the due date yet, but
more are dropping off all the time.

These are spread out on 15 different clients.

I see the server status shows no more work queued for download. I guess if no one is at work today, Friday,
then we will be out at least over the New Year's weekend. Hopefully more will come next week?
Happy New Year everyone!

Here's an update, sorry for the delay.

Our database server is running out of disk space. We had to reconfigure it which took a long time because it was over 140gigs, however it is operating at a very sluggish pace. Our project has been quite busy lately mainly due to Charity Engine providing 1000s of new hosts each day. This has been going on for quite some time and our database finally reached it's space limit with the current project configuration. We are working on a temporary solution since our full upgrade will take some time, on the order of months I am told.

At least it's good to know none of this could be foreseen. I mean, really?

It will take some time to settle as there are a lot of jobs (millions) that need to be processed. We plan to have another long period of down time when we transition to the temporary upgrade for the database server. Keith, Darwin, and Patrick, our sys admins, are working on getting it set up now.

So in the near future expect intermittent down time. The project status page may be incorrect and data dumps, and credit granting for failed jobs may also be delayed. Expect this to improve as we catch up on things.

On a side note, I was told that Charity Engine is going to detach from our project soon due to commercial interests/projects. This obviously will help our servers but unfortunately we'll see a huge drop in throughput. We greatly appreciate the massive computing they've provided us and hope to get their hosts crunching again for us in the future if possible.


Hope that was worthwhile for all the regular users that you lose who gave up and moved elsewhere do to no more work from the project.

this is a shame I think. lot's of volunteers basically getting the heave-ho due to whatever this 'charity engine' thing is. good luck.

I now have 15 tasks stuck on \"Uploading.\" Some have missed their deadline. Server Status Page shows all green.


Yep, I\'ve got 12 finished results due earlier today. Orphaned on the vine.

I saw a few uploads get thru when I restarted my NICs but it died pretty quickly.

I\'ve got 73 results queued for upload right now. Stuff happens ....

All of my pred5csxxxxx w/u\'s terminate after 2-3 hrs. but show no error.
Is this by design and OK?

I don\'t want to dump good w/u\'s for no reason.

good luck with the server work.

[quote][quote]Let me share what I can. I am not at UW, and so have no first-hand knowledge of this specific situation. But let me offer the following:

Thanks for the update on the situation.

Now would be a great time to suspend network communicatiion until the project gets a chance to get it\'s head back up above water...

Thanks.

It seems like the server \'status\' page for Rosetta@home
rarely shows when anything is down. <sigh>

I\'m having a ton of problems in the last couple of weeks that I *thought* appeared to be DNS lookup related, but I\'ve come to find that the only application with the problem is Rosetta. Reading here about server problems gives me a little bit of relief in thinking it\'s not all on my end, or a telco problem. At least there is some clue to server status with the project posted here. Thanks for the efforts.

Post:
Certainly sounds likely. You (and the project servers) could really make good use of a caching proxy. That would eliminate downloads of the same files (such as the application executable and the database) for each and every machine.


An excellent idea that I\'ve been putting off for too long... thanks Mod.Sense

15) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : firewall rules for ICMP - Rosetta@home (Message 75245)
Posted 17 Mar 2013 by amgthis
Post:
Iptables log shows ICMP connections to 128.95.160.144 sometimes blocked with a TYPE=3 and CODE=10. Could this be the project rejecting the connection because of too many connections already to my IP? I have 21 boxes sharing the one outgoing IP thru my firewall, maybe the project rejects over x-number of current connections at one time?

Sorry for being so ignorant of Iptables rules.
I\'m trying to make sure I don\'t have a problem on my side, but usually I can connect with Rosetta@home fine. Sometimes downloads stall out for awhile, maybe it\'s related.

Thanks for any help from you admin guru types.

Mike

Looks like the server status pages have been updated to \'disabled\'.
Someone is paying attention.

I\'m sure the servers will be back up soon.

Thanks David! I was checking my debian boxes for this behavior but none
