Hello Web Service users, An executive overview: Within the next month or two the DMC will be reducing the functionality of our fdsnws-event service. In the farther future the DMC will no longer offer an fdsnws-event interface. Reduction in functions coming soon: no secondary origins (primary origins only), only offering the ISC and NEIC PDE catalogs, and no phase arrivals. Web service developers should be building applications that use services from other data centers, a list is here: h... [more]

Apologies if folks are already aware of this, but the timeseries web service appears to have stopped working in the last hour. The example from the webpage is: http://service.iris.edu/irisws/timeseries/1/query?net=IU&sta=ANMO&loc=00&cha=BHZ&starttime=2005-01-01T00:00:00&endtime=2005-01-02T00:00:00&output=plot and it returns: Error 500: Internal Server Error The Timeseries webservice was unable to understand your request. error invoking: null Cannot run program "/bin/sh": error=11, Resource ...

I'm using the timeseries service (via obspy) to download BH data one day at a time, and I'm getting a lot of timeouts. I'm trapping 404 not founds, but many requests are just timing out. Retrying usually doesn't help. I changed the timeout parameter from 10 to 30 seconds with no apparent difference. Under what conditions does the service time out instead of sending a 404? Do I need to run a timeout setting longer than 30 seconds? Thanks! -- John
