Has the nightly Connection Finder update quit running?

+13 votes
I noticed that several profiles that I recently  created or changed LNAB for are showing as unconnected, although I know they are connected to people who are firmly connected to the tree. The earliest of these creations (linked to this message) was created (and connected) shortly after noon EDT on Wednesday June 22.

Has the nightly Connection Finder update quit working?

Looks like it. Same with people I created on June 22.
Still no connection.
Same here. I suspect that the process got hung up while it was running Wednesday night, then it quit and hasn't restarted.
This should now be fixed. Thank you, Ellen, Eva, and RJ.

The process crashed Wednesday night, as Ellen notes. We tried a bunch of things to fix it but ended up just having to expand the capacity of the server that rebuilds the connections.
Thanks! It's a nice feature.

Hi guys,

Our tech folks are aware of this and are working on it. Hopefully it'll be up and running again tomorrow some time.

Still not updating properly, although it's strange that the numbers connected to A.J. are increasing every night (in line with the current averages), but the connections aren't filtering down to the individual profiles. And the numbers shown connected to A.J.. Kevin Bacon and Queen Elizabeth used to run in parallel, now they are all different. I think I will concentrate on something other than connecting today, and would advise others to do likewise.

Yes, something does seem to be running. On my Unconnected list, the profiles I created yesterday show 4 or 5 connections (but they should connect to the Big Tree).
