SkyView Survey Availablility

Most of SkyView's data are stored locally on SkyView systems but some survey data are transferred from remote servers. For these remote data we use a standard protocol where we first find a list of the images in the region of interest and then download these images to generate the requested SkyView image. Every now and then connections to these remote servers are interrupted and data cannot be transferred so requested image queries fail. We monitor these remote server connections and try to notify our contacts at the approprite institution as soon as we see problems.
