Search timeout

03 Oct 23: One server has been relocated, the server currently doesn't have a public IP address in the meantime. I wrote some additional tunnel code running separately to handle this. When the server is engaged the connection is 5600+ days uniform (since around 24 July 2008). In the unlikely case I disengaged the server because of some problem the retention is 1200-3800 days depending on newsgroup. If you experience any issue please let me know.

29 Nov 23: Because of encrypted and obfuscated posts flood mass posted by a few nzb indexing websites using usenet servers as private storage for their members to download the posts - the situation with the content is pretty chaotic since their purpose is to post in such a way, so users must use their website exclusively, when the website disappears - the encrypted posts just eat usenet providers' hard disk space uselessly. If you can't find something specific please let me know at alexbirj at gmail dot com what exactly you can't find for me to check how it is possible to retain the posts. Non-obfuscated posts shouldn't be affected at all, let me know if you notice anything missing.

29 Nov 23: The search protocol had to be upgraded to extend 3 byte (16M+) limit on the server side for number of sets per instance, so at least the version 5.8.3 is needed to access it, otherwise should be no any difference.

21 Jun 24: The search protocol had to be upgraded again to be able to properly process the trial version searches on the tunneled server (see the first note above).

Search service has been timing out (6) for four or five hours.

Yep, I too am getting timeouts. Hopefully just a simple case of temporary system downtime.

i had internet connection down and didn't get the alarm when one search service computer went down due to failed battery (known issue), the replacement battery has arrived already and will be installed shortly.

search is working now.

i'll try to run sim card modem in the future if such prolonged isp outage happens again, i have never had such coincidence.

Ok, good Alex. Is the search index updated correctly?

it is now up to date.

such situation is rare and i can reduce downtime even when my isp connection is down.

i'm working on sets for search to reduce hardware needs, it should add more tolerancy as to hardware failures.
