Last night sidious (mysql replica database server) rebooted itself. Yeah, we did just move this into the closet, so there's non-zero worry that something may have gotten injured in transit, or it's unhappy in its new home. On the flip side, our servers are rebooting themselves from time to time for no apparent reason except maybe high stress. I love all operating systems (this is sarcasm). Anyway, that meant mysql crashed ungracefully and has been recovering all day - however succesful this recovery is remains to be seen. It is just the replica, so no big shakes, really.

And this afternoon we ran out of work to send out. This was due to our science database getting "brain freeze" which is what I'm calling it these days. If you run the wrongly formatted query the whole engine silently grinds to a halt, effectively blocking all splitter and assimilator access. I found and killed the errant queries and the dam burst. So yet again we're recovering from an unexpected semi-outage this week.

Regarding the setisvn server (from last thread)... I'm fully aware of the poor configuration of that virtual domain. Low on my priority list.

Cedar Breaks

Wonderful place, especially in the summer. It's very cool when its so hot down at the base. Be careful of deer though. My Chevy S-10 had a bad encounter with one.
