Exclamation Major Power Outage At Stanford - Many Servers Down

If you are having problems getting WU's today there is a major power outage at the Stanford campus affecting their servers, seems to be mostly those that supply SMP and some GPU WU's.

From Prof. Pande's blog this morning; Folding@home: Major power outage at Stanford

Quote:
The electrical power is out at most Stanford buildings as of 5:20 this morning (Tuesday, Jan 19). SHC Engineering and Maintenance reports that the Stanford Cogen power plant (the power plan that powers Stanford) is currently off line. Emergency generators in most of our server rooms are operating, but one room (associated with VSPG* servers) is currently without power.
We do not currently have an estimate of when power will be restored. Moreover, while much of FAH is still up at the moment, we may have to take servers down if the temperature in the server rooms gets too high (the cooling is down as well).
We'll update the blog as we get news. You can also see which servers are up or down on our serverstat page.
Posted By Kasson on the F@H forums; Folding Forum • View topic - power outage at Stanford--some server rooms down

Quote:
Stanford's main power plant is currently offline (perhaps due to flooding--we're having unusually heavy rains this morning). Some of our server rooms are affected. We're assessing the situation and doing our best to maintain maximal server availability. Please bear with us.


Edit/ Prof. Pande has provided an update;

Quote:
UPDATE: 3pm Pacific Time
It took a long time for the server room in the Computer Science Building to come back on line, but it's back now. We are checking out the servers and restarting binaries to serve FAH WUs. Looks like this is basically over. Due to redundancy in our use of server rooms on campus, most of FAH was up even while the whole University was in the dark, so while this outage was non-ideal, luckily most of FAH was working during the outage.

There are two things I don't Joke about.
Cancer , and Drugs.

And when the first one hits Home, you realize it ain't all the funny.

When I was 15 my best friend was diag with that kind of cancer, he never reach 17.


Back on the topic. I get a look at the Startford server...it's not looking good at all, will take a wild to reboot all the stuf, and with all the people who will try to get work at the same time, it may cause other problems.

The F@H servers aren't down at the moment, so for the time being we have nothing to worry about. I haven't had any trouble uploading results or getting new work, and hopefully the power plant will be back up and running before any real issues arise.
