Bits (Oct 09 2007)

Today the usual tuesday outage, which went fine. Of course, we preceeded this by having the project off all night to clean out various backlogged queues. It's at the point that if one part of the backend fails for long enough, the result table gets bloated and wreaks havoc on the whole system. But we were fully drained by this morning, and the database backup/compression went smoothly. We're catching up now.

Somebody asked what "db_purge.x86_64" is. In order to speed up the process of reducing the db_purge queue we wanted to run that process on the system where the actual archives are being stored to disk. This was thumper, a 64 bit machine, so that meant compiling a 64 bit version of the purger. The suffix "x86_64" denotes that.

During the outage Jeff and I reconfigured the workunit volume on our Snap Appliance to be a grouped set of mirrors instead of a big raid 5. The idea is that this will vastly help disk I/O - we'll start putting workunits back on this system in due time and monitor progress. We shall see how well this helps.

Appart for Anandtech's stats, it shows how much more/less than Anandtech.
Also shows based on Average Work Done how many days for Anandtech to overtake the team, or be overtaken by a team behind

Thanks for the stats, Rattledagger!

It seems that the output is increasing and that the distance to the Chinese and Austrian teams is getting bigger .... :D
