The replica database will be offline until we can restore it from the primary database on tuesday (at the earlies). This will result in slowness of the web site and the scheduler.

Thank you for taking time out on the weekend to let us know how the servers were doing.

Perhaps there could be a project for an intern to make an automated forum/BOINC notice system that would post a message along the lines of "___ has unexpectedly gone offline. Staff has been notified. Please be patient while the issue is resolved."

Thanks a lot for the info.
Already five days that the stats are frozen.
Some of us are preoccupied.
But now, we know !
Have a nice day

One of these has become unplugged...



...please be patient while the staff figure out which one it is :)

The "problem" is the notification is (usually) an email, which the puts the next step onto the "intern"/staff to read the email - even on vacation, or when out sick.

The reason I mentioned an automated message that posted to the forum or used the BOINC notification system. I think all news posts get routed to the notification system anyway.
Since there are always those that whine and throw a fit about "no one tells us what is going on or acknowledges the problem". While forgetting about all of the times the guys have stayed up late, taken time out of their weekends, or holidays to fix issues.
It seems like something that might improve PR a bit.

Server Caroline has big, but not insurmountable, problems, that staff know about. If they need specific funds they can be found.
