UWM networking upgrade (finished)

July 21, 2016

There is a need to upgrade the networking equipment at UWM and we want to do so before the new Web site launch. As a result, the Einstein@Home project will be down on Monday July 25, 2016; starting at 1300 UTC. That's 1500 for most Europeans and 0900 for East-coast North America. It's our hope that the network downtime will be less than 20 minutes.

Database maintenance on Monday 2016-05-02

April 29, 2016

We're planning to take the Albert@Home project offline to order to upgrade our backend database software. This is schedule for Monday 2016 May 5th (2016-05-02), 1300 UTC. Europeans: 1500 CEST. N. Americans: 0900 EDT. Also: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

We're hoping for a downtime of only an hour or so. The BOINC project will be shut down, and the Web site will be down as well.


Database server crash

January 08, 2016

Hi everyone,

Last night our database crashed out of the blue, taking parts of the Drupal system with it. Unfortunately not all repair attempts were 100% successful and our backups of the specific components also turned out to be useless.
