Same happening for us! Good crawling, from submissions on 7/12-7/14....

I haven't seen it yet... I'll keep my eyes peeled. Thanks for the info guys... can't wait until the database is back.

Just came back for me too. Now we need to get the db back up.

Seen it around for about 2 or three weeks. Didn't think it was too significant at the time.

Herumph! :( We've not seen the little bugger for a long time. Where are you guys submitting? Are you submitting in batches or single pages, and if so, does that make a difference to the spider activity? Thanks!

Well, we've seen Slurp (126.96.36.199) six times since the 17th of July but no j6000. We've been submitting through Canada.com.

You guys will get j6000. It took me a while too.

We selectively post to Ink at various locations. Anz, Canada and a few of the minors. Seems to work for us.

Some pages I submitted to goo, canada, anzwers, and hotbot on July 13 got spidered last night.
| 7:02 pm on Jul 20, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I'm getting a lot of different versions of Slurp/si ( email@example.com; [inktomi.com...] ) this morning. Still no 6000.

I am starting to think that they are not going to restore their db, but instead rebuild.
I'd start resubmitting if you are still holding off.

Wow, that's a big statement. So what makes you say that Littleman?
| 4:21 am on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
j6000 hit me for over 6000 pages in the last 2 days i think they are rebuliding as these are pages I submitted the day of the DROP and after.. But still nothing listed...
| 8:09 am on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I hope I am wrong, but I don't think anyone should wait around at this point and hope. I figure they will weather restore or rebuild - it would be wise to make sure you are covered eater way. I've been submitting (as always I do) daily through this meltdown.
| 6:35 pm on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I am very happy to say I am wrong!
| 6:41 pm on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I think you were right.
| 6:54 pm on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
How many pages do you submit per day per site? How often do you resubmit the same pages to the same engines? Just curious. :)
| 7:12 pm on Jul 22, 2000 (gmt 0)|
Tangibly, or philosophically? Are you seeing only more resent submissions go live? MarkJH said that only the pages submitted after July 3rd made it back in. I haven't had time to confirm this.
I am very agressive about resubmitting to ink. I submit up to 20 pages a day per site and resubmit every 30 days. Also I submit to canada, hotbot, answers, and goo.

>Tangibly, or philosophically
From 22 June to 22 July; 1047 pages submitted to Ink [all pages submitted to canada,hotbot and anzwers, various domains] the only pages now in the database are those that were submitted after 6 July.
Example 6th July submission:
Listed 22nd July
Ink goes belly up, re-submit or wait? [My instinct is to wait, unfortunately the wrong thing to do].
Example 19 July submission:
Listed 22nd July
What I should have done is re-submit all of my clients sites on the 19th and after,they would now be indexed or about to be.
Inktomi is only a database, with the inherent up's and downs that database management entails.
My new philosophy is to ignore these fluctuations,if my clients sites have dropped out the dB then I will re-submit.
Inktomi does not control when I submit sites only when it will index them.

Spidering seems to be about 2 days after submitting. Still haven't seen anything make it into the DB. How many days after the spider should I expect to see it???
| 1:05 pm on Jul 28, 2000 (gmt 0)|
Our experience (since the big drop) has been 2 to 4 days after spidering. But, from what I'm reading here and there - some have been quicker and some much longer. Our rule of thumb has been - If it doesn't show up a week after J6000 comes we submit it again.

I haven't seen 188.8.131.52 since July 29th. I was unable to submit from Thursday July 27 through Saturday July 29th due to complications with Anzwers. I was wondering how consistently j6000 is coming for everyone else?
| 1:14 am on Aug 3, 2000 (gmt 0)|
Jimmy6, - looks like you're not alone. I've submitted a bunch with no J6000 or indexing.
| 1:16 am on Aug 3, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I think it has something to do with this [webmasterworld.com].

Well, it cam back today. So, maybe NetBSD has just been on the fritz.
