Source forge envoit cela... CVS Update --------------------------------------------- (This section was sent to project admins last week) As you may have noticed, CVS is visibly having growing pains. Due to system load, we have had to move anonymous checkouts to our backup server. This has made the code of our 70,000 projects more accessible to project developers. I know this temporary solution has frustrated some of you and I want to apologize for that.
This is what we are doing about it: We have 6 new systems that have been installed in our co-location facility. These are very fast Xeon systems, with very fast RAID. These systems will improve performance by a tremendous amount. (As a comparison, our current setup has two systems, one primary and one backup, that are three years old with slow processors and aging disk arrays). In a previous sitewide email we proclaimed that the faster hardware would be online last month (August). This was the goal but we had some unexpected delays. These delays included late hardware delivery, additional electrical requirements in our colo cage, and a host of other issues. That's the bad news. The good news is we are very close to having this fixed. As of right now, we are working around the clock to get these new boxes online to give relief to the performance issues. Our primary CVS server is copying 15 million files to these six new machines. Since this box is also serving CVS checkins and checkouts to the community simultaneously, the data transfer has been slow going. During the last 4 days we have transfered 40% of the data. We expect the rest of the data to be transfered by Thursday of next week, and the new boxes online shortly there after. Hang in there, we will have this behind us in the very near term. Update: Two of the six systems are now online. It is likely you have already have already noticed a difference. CVS stats will be back online shortly as well. -- François Lemarchand homepage : http://balno.free.fr/ PhpMyBibli : http://phpmybibli.sourceforge.net Liste de diffusion phpmybibli.devel Pour se désinscrire : mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]
