Our storage system (managed by the University) has some serious problem. They are working to fix it but they cannot estimate for how long it will be down. We decided to stop the server at least until the next Monday.
Thank you for your understanding.

They are still working on the system. I do not know the details but I guess it has to be a serious problem. I cannot do anything until they fix and test it.

The storage system is still down. There is a 'status page' here https://icts.unitn.it/alert/sistema-storage-nx-collina-non-raggiungibile (although in Italian). I cannot do anything but wait....

The storage system should be up and running (fixed) but in the next days it will be probably down another few times in order to fully test it. So I decided to restart the BOINC server components but not the work generator until the next Monday.

I don't know exactly if simply restarting the system after some days of inactivity will cause any trouble (deadlines probably...)

Looks like the work generator is back up and running? I just received a couple a dozen fresh WUs...

I don't recall what the uploads were before but at 9.4MB it probably doesn't take long to fill up.

purge is something that probably doesn't need to run all the time.

I noticed the problem. Unfortunately I cannot do anything to try to fix it until Monday. For now I was able just to stop the work generator.

I moved the upload directory to another storage and restarted the system, we have to find a way to reduce the size of the output file.
You may see that a lot of workunits are erroring out very quick. The reason is a bad input file (zero bytes or similar) that was made while the disk was full. They should auto-abort after some tries.

I had to move the upload directory to a nfs mounted storage (which is slower than the previous one), also a lot of people is uploading their results, the server is overwhelmed by work...
[edit] but it is getting better...
