Recent SkyView Availability issues

SkyView experienced two separate outages the last two days. 2MASS data were unavailable most of Tuesday due to the downtime of the remote system hosting the 2MASS survey data. The problems were resolved and 2MASS data are now available again in SkyView.

We also experienced image generation problems due to heavy usage that caused our temporary storage space to be depleted. We have tweaked the processes that clean out this area. As a result FITS files and specifically large ones will not be stored as long as they have been in the past. We will monitor the storage area to see if we can make the files available for a longer period of time and will look into possibly creating a larger storage area.
