Message 1080459 - Posted: 22 Feb 2011, 23:10:23 UTC

We're back from the long weekend, which seems to have been a good period of catching up after some hard times. All systems were happy, and Bob kept the splitters well fed with raw data. We had our usual outage today for database backup. We were hoping to get back to using gowron as the workunit storage server but the rsync back is taking forever (perhaps slowed by an automatic RAID recheck on thumper which nobody asked for - I set it so these automatic rechecks won't happen again).

As for the ptolemy shutdown project, that continues to drag on a little bit. Once again thumper is part of this mix, so the last few (large and active) directories being copied over are taking forever.

Hah! That's what I was thinking too.


Thanks for the update Matt.


Yes, thanks for the update, for all of them, actually.

However, if I may comment, isn't it about time to clean some of the old news off the home page? Things like Happy new year, Workunit shortage from 13 December, Back online from 8 December...

Not that I think you really need any more work to do. ;)

All of your hard work is paying off Matt ! The project is really running SMOOTH for me ! I'm uploading and downloading with no problems at all, and everything is going real SMOOTH on my end. The project seems to be running better now than it ever did.
Thanks for the great work and dedication.
