Just an update on the past 24 hours.

After all the index builds pushed through from the primary to the secondary database server the dam broke on its own last night. However, the assimilators were unable to insert anything. With the assimilators clogged the workunit file server began to fill up. We had to stop the splitters to keep the volume from growing out of bounds. Things got cleaned up this morning, the databases safely restarted, and everything is back on track though we are still catching up.

To answer questions from the previous thread:

We do plan on doing the analysis on the secondary/replica server.

Problems may only seem to happen on long weekends, but perhaps there's some truth to this. Chances are on a long weekend we make other semi-vacation-like plans and so there's less hands on deck to take care of problems. I'm personally not paid enough to care about 24 hour uptime. Don't like it? Donate some money and maybe we'll hire more staff.

don't look now but the servers seem to be out of control again, with the to-be-purged stats skyrocketing. It's Sat morn on the left coast.

Thanks, Matt, for all the hard work. No es necesario que calculemos el Setiathome todo el tiempo. Podemos calcular otros proyectos, tambiƩn.

As mentioned by Jeff Dungan, the client connection stats has been out of whack since Wed of last week, and is so still; as of 0605 Tuesday, Berkeley time...
