DP Site Back Online

This is a followup of yesterday’s post regarding DP Site Slowness.

The process of repairing the past_tallies table was a long one, but it and all other mysql checks completed successfully. The post-recovery checklist was completed just before 11 p.m. server time (PDT) on Sept. 12 and we have returned to normal operations.

Thank you for your patience!

If you’re unfamiliar with Distributed Proofreaders (DP), there’s a link to the DP Front Page in the sidebar beside this post.

    Thanks for the update–I missed being able to drop into DP whenever I wanted to!

    “client IP that had an unusually large number of web server connections open”

    How many is ‘an unusually large number’?
    Where I have a hefty upload for an illustrated project I’m creating I have to split my upload zips in a whole slew of ’em to send them on to dp-scans. Sometimes I’ll have over half a dozen concurrent windows open to make the job actually do-able before I become too senescent to remember what I was trying to do!

    Is there’s a limit on connections as well as file-size for uploads? Or was this glitch something completely different?
