We think we have found a simple fix for the database problems. The database has grown to 45 GB in size and has gotten too large for the physical memory of the machine that hosts it. However it turns out that due to some mistakes made in the project operations during the past weeks, about 80% of the work in the database is already completed. So we are running a db_purge task tonight that should remove this already-completed work from the database, leaving only the work-in-progress still in place in the database. If this is successful, then Einstein@Home should be back up and operating normally in about another 24 hours. Thank you for your patience!
