Well it seems we lost the new CASTOR information provider (CIP) this morning and the BDII was reset to the old one - the physical host it lived on (the new one) decided to kick the bucket. One of the consequences is that nearline accounting is lost, all nearline numbers are now zero (obviously not 44444 or 99999, that would be silly...:-)).
Before you ask, the new CIP doesn't run on the old host because it was compiled for 64 bit on SLC5, and the old host is 32 bit SL4.
We're still working on getting it back, but are currently short of machines that can run it, even virtual ones. If you have any particular problems, do get in touch with the helpdesk and we'll see what we can do.
