Another weekend where Jeff, Eric, and Bob were rebooting servers, restarting processes, etc. to keep the project more or less afloat. The broken things are still broken. We had a meeting this morning to discuss solutions. We have some things to try in the database realm, but we're close to upgrading that server anyway, so the "slow query" issue may very well just time out. As for the NFS/network issues, we may just replace kryten with another one of our newer servers (which is already in use as a computer server, so we'll need to replace that, too). That is, unless some other server materializes.

The network upgrades planned for today were moved until middle of next week. We have the THEMIS project to thank, as they are launching this week and therefore there is a lab-wide lockdown on any major network changes. Fair enough.

Are the shared memory faults in the scheduler caused by the dropping NFS shares too?

Thank You Matt for the NEWS & Updates . . . something 4 Y'All . . .



Artist's concept of the release of the five THEMIS probes from their carrier.
After launch, the probes will take 10 months to coast into the desired orbits
around Earth, such that every four days they line up along the planet's magnetotail

NASA to launch THEMIS probes Feb. 15

By Robert Sanders, Media Relations | 17 January 2007

BERKELEY – NASA is poised to launch on Feb. 15 five identical space probes — the largest number of spacecraft

ever attempted by the agency on a single rocket — to solve a decades-long mystery about the origin of magnetic storms that

turn the green, shimmering curtains of the Earth's Northern and Southern Lights into colorful, dancing light shows
