It's looking like we might have find the culprit of the random HE connection problems - a corrupt routing table in one of our routers. I believe we cleaned it up. So... did we? How's everybody doing now? Of course, we're coming out of a typical Tuesday outage, so there's a lot of competing traffic.

Also jocelyn survived just fine doing its mysql replica duties over the weekend and through the outage. Though we hit one snag with a difference between 5.1 and 5.5 mysql syntax. How annoying! Not a major snag, though, and everything's fine.

Jeff and Bob are still doing tons of data-collecting tests trying to figure out the best way to configure the memory on oscar, the main informix/science database server. Will more memory actually help? They jury is still out. Or the trial is still going on. Pick your favorite metaphor.

Matt, do you still have AP database problems? Validators have been down for some time now.

They're back up. Ended up just being a server plumbing problem.

But when downloads occur they seem to come through cleanly, not locking up.

This is great news, many thanks for the update, Matt - this solved the connection problems that I had: About an hour ago, for the first time since June 16th, I have been able to connect and received work units straight away. Thanks a lot for all your work!

Matt, thanks for the news!

I don't know, maybe some other problem occurs now?
My machine (BOINC & Firefox) can't reach .13, .16, .18 and .20 since 9 Aug 2011 - 14:46:34 UTC.

Normally after a short time after the weekly maintenance my machine can reach this URLs.
Now after ~ 8 to 10 hours not.

Hi!

HE connection problems moved to another part of the world.
None of my PCs managed to connect after outage: and they are on 3 different ISPs.
There is plenty of reports in Number Crunching treads as well.

BR, good luck!

Folks...
Rather than discuss connection problems here, please post them in the Number Crunching thread on HE connection problems that Matt has established for that purpose, and which he is monitoring.

If you have already done so, thanks.

Meow.

I don't know if the ISP matters. I also have AT&T and all three of my machines have contacted the server this morning. The powerful new one downloaded 337 new units and reported about 100 over the course of a few hours last night and a few more this morning (with a 5 hour no-contact gap in the middle). If the ISP matters, it's probably more specific than an overall company, getting down to individual geographic regions (I'm in the suburbs of Chicago).
