[biomart-users] Is the biomaRt server down? just wondering?

Anthony Colombo
is any one else getting server issues for biomaRt?  I am just double checking that the server may be down?  My error is something about "unable to connect to server..." using R biomaRt() getBM() function.

Dear Anthony,

We are having issues with our useast mirror at the moment so this might explain why you are getting an error. If you are not using useast.ensembl.org, could you please send me your query and full error?

Thanks a lot,
Kind Regards,
Thomas

Error in getBM(filters = "ensembl_gene_id", attributes = c("ensembl_gene_id",  : 
  Query ERROR: caught BioMart::Exception::Database: Could not connect to mysql database ensembl_mart_87: DBI connect('database=ensembl_mart_87;host=ensdbweb-1-vip;port=5316','ensro',...) failed: Unknown MySQL server host 'ensdbweb-1-vip' (1) at /ensemblweb/www/www_88/biomart-perl/lib/BioMart/Configuration/DBLocation.pm line 98.


This is the error received when I call getBM()

if you need any more information on the scripts etc, please let me know.  I am connecting to ensembl.org, but I don't think I'm using the useast.ensembl.org mirror.

Re: [biomart-users] Is the biomaRt server down? just wondering?

Steffen Durinck-2
biomaRt is working for me.  I wonder why your error lists 'ensembl_mart_87' as it should be connecting to the latest Ensembl version which is 88.

What do you get when running:

listMarts(verbose=TRUE)


I get everything (trying some other hosts) pointing to 88:

okay I reinstalled biomart on my system and the listMarts points to version 88.   this can be closed.

Re: [biomart-users] Is the biomaRt server down? just wondering?

Thomas Maurel
Hi Anthony,

I am glad it’s working for you now.
That’s strange, the following error that you reported is definitively coming from the useast mirror:
Error in getBM(filters = "ensembl_gene_id", attributes = c("ensembl_gene_id", :
Query ERROR: caught BioMart::Exception::Database: Could not connect to mysql database ensembl_mart_87: DBI connect(‘database=ensembl_mart_87;host=ensdbweb-1-vip;port=5316','ensro',...) failed: Unknown MySQL server host 'ensdbweb-1-vip' (1) at /ensemblweb/www/www_88/biomart-perl/lib/BioMart/Configuration/DBLocation.pm line 98.

I wonder if you didn’t automatically got redirected from www.ensembl.org to useast.ensembl.org.

Kind Regards,
Thomas

okay I reinstalled biomart on my system and the listMarts points to version 88.   this can be closed.

biomaRt is working for me.  I wonder why your error lists 'ensembl_mart_87' as it should be connecting to the latest Ensembl version which is 88.

What do you get when running:

listMarts(verbose=TRUE)


I get everything (trying some other hosts) pointing to 88:

Dear Anthony,

We are having issues with our useast mirror at the moment so this might explain why you are getting an error. If you are not using useast.ensembl.org, could you please send me your query and full error?

Thanks a lot,
Kind Regards,
Thomas

is any one else getting server issues for biomaRt?  I am just double checking that the server may be down?  My error is something about "unable to connect to server..." using R biomaRt() getBM() function.
