Message 1071254 - Posted: 27 Jan 2011, 22:00:38 UTC

The bruno revival project continues: The old bruno is fully configured and we're rsync'ing the results from synergy to it. We're looking to completely flip the systems identities again on Monday, thus getting us back to normal.

Meanwhile the ptolemy/thumper project continues: The last of the data on thumper we care about is being copied off, and we hope to completely blitz all the filesystems early next week. Then we'll copy everything on ptolemy to thumper and shut off ptolemy for good. I think at that point the only active 32-bit system in the server closet is anakin, which is just doing downloads, so whatever.

We've been really busy, network wise, and just barely managing to keep up with raw data demands. Hopefully this will calm down sooner than later.

Some of the backend processing (and web pages) are gummed up as we're doing a major index drop/rebuild on the science database (which locks some of the tables). Some of the indexes existed in only one physical file (or chunk) - we're now fragmenting these over several files, to allow quicker lookups and/or more simultaneous lookup threads. This index build should wrap up sometime later tonight (hopefully).

Do we have to go back to normal? Everything has been running so smoothly this way! :-)

Just out of curiosity, is the resend lost tasks on? Mine are okay but some of my wingmen seem to have a few lost tasks. Anyway, glad everything is going well on your end. Thanks for the update.

I believe 'resend' is still on - it saved a Lunatics tester's bacon earlier today, after an app_info fumble.

So what's going to happen to all the old equipment? Will they be sent to the (newly to be set up) Seti Museum of Used Equipment? ;-)

Jeez, but the boyz in da lab have been busy this week......

Obviously having fun (I hope) with some of the new equipment and revitalizing some of the old.

You boyz are on a roll. Hope you can keep your stamina up under these conditions....

Meow to all in the lab.

Uh yep, sure seems that way. I can't upload and server stats say that all of the validators are kaput. Oh well, it's Sunday, they'll get it sorted out in the morning. :)

Hope it's nothing too serious.
