WRDS system and datasets fully restored

All systems and datasets have been fully restored and are operating normally at this time. Users should not encounter any problems running queries on the web, through PC SAS or interactively through SSH.

Interactive users are no longer limited to one query at a time. We have increased the number from one to three which is what it was before the hardware failure.

WRDS System Status Update

WRDS is still running in a reduced mode as a result of the hardware failure on Friday. WRDS staff along with our vendor’s technicians remain on-site expediting the resolution. We apologize for the inconvenience and genuinely appreciate your continued patience.

 

Current status:

 

1.       The web queries, PC-SAS and SSH jobs are all functional. However, they continue to operate in a reduced mode. We have reduced the number of hardware resources for the web queries from twelve to four units. 

Similarly, we are requesting you to limit running one job instead of three simultaneous jobs. We realize this is not an ideal condition but feel it’s necessary in order to keep the system stabilized until we have fully recovered. We’re doing everything we can to ensure that the site is operating for as many people as possible while the hardware is being restored.
 

2.       FISD, ISSM and TAQ are being restored starting with February 2011.
