Our (limited) storage is running out of disk space, please try to free it as best as you can. You can check:
- One home directory is taking up 5.8G
- 1.8G old_things (inside ~boincadm/projects)

inside boincadm/projects/test
- 6.6G tmp_gene (dated 23 Dec)
- 12G sample_results (achieved results, should be moved somewhere else)

also check if you can find old/useless big files or directories and please remove them.

Ok, I checked the webpages.
I reduced the genehome web folder from 50M to 15M.
I also have a copy in my home folder.

Will look into the issue soon.
I think I will
- Delete the old_things (if they are really old)
- Compress sample_results (I don't know if they are going to be used, but lzma usually does the job in a good way - we may delete them later if needed)
- Check for older files in download and staging directory.

One home folder may be freed in the process ;)

I'm having some issues in connecting with the VPN... It does not seem to work anymore.
I will try to fix it tomorrow morning.
If you are in desperate need of space, delete the big file in my home...

12 GB free: It should last for quite a bit
Side note: We are almost finishing the workunits to distribute!
Once we validate the results that we received when the validator was not running, we should get all the results we need for the post-processing!

Is the end of beta phase? Are you going on production?

It is the end of 'this' phase.

I created a 'gzipped' directory inside 'sample_results', moved there all uncompressed results and compressed them to free disk space. So right now 'sample_results' contains
- gzip compressed results (WITHOUT .gz extension) returned from clients this way
- gzip compressed results (WITH .gz extension) inside the 'gzipped' subdirectory, returned from clients uncompressed (oldest workunits).
