Error in traffic computation

All dormitories except Hochschulstraße

Written by Justin Künzel, Florian Völker, 2019-01-22. Permalink

Original news (2018-08-24): Unfortunately our new user administration system Pycroft still has missing functions. Currently, the traffic credit is not increased by the expected daily 10GiB.
Your credit will continue to decrease!
Therefore we don't block any members at the moment.

We are already working on correcting the error and ask for your understanding!
If you want to help us and become active at AGDSN, this might be interesting for you.

Update (2018-12-04): The error is still present. We will inform you as soon as it is solved.

Update (2019-01-22): Due to the abolishment of the traffic limit the missing feature is no longer relevant.

During the next two days (2018-09-11 and 2018-09-12) a Studentenwerk contractor will repair some faulty fiber connections at Gret-Palucca-Straße. We do not have backup links available for all sites connecting through the affected fibres, which will cause some outages at the sites mentioned above.

Due to the short notice we don't have any more detail for now, we will give updates as soon as we know more.

Update (2018-09-11):
Around 9:10am GPS11 and Neuberinstraße went offline, ca. 10:20am the connections were reestablished. Besides some short interruptions to verify the fiber link quality there should be no further problems, by this evening the work should be finished.
