Wiki Replica c1.labsdb to be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 14:30 UTC

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1001.eqiad.wmnet (aka c1.labsdb). This server will be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 at 14:30 UTC.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). The c1.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until the reboot is complete.

There is a possibility of catastrophic hardware failure in this reboot. There will be no way to recover the server or the data it currently hosts if that happens. Tools that are hosting self-created data on c1.labsdb will lose that data if there is hardware failure. If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c1.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at

This reboot is an intermediate step before the complete shutdown of the server on Wednesday 2017-12-13. See Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 00:19, 28 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

API? Number of allowed request on Vision-API from Google?

I would like to create bot to reverse search images from Wikimedia commons to detect copyvio using the Vision-API from Google? On this it's mentioned that there is a limit to the number of requests we can make against Google's services. How many requests are allowed ? If it's way too less, is there any chance that this limit can be increased ? -- Eatcha (talk) 07:25, 10 June 2019 (UTC)Reply

If it's not going to work, is there any alternative ? -- Eatcha (talk) 07:27, 10 June 2019 (UTC)Reply

@Eatcha: Unless Google has added something recently, as far as I know, there is no way to do an image search via the Google Vision API (as I would also be interested in such a use). kaldari (talk) 16:12, 10 June 2019 (UTC)Reply
The only service that I know if is TinEye's API, but it costs money. kaldari (talk) 16:13, 10 June 2019 (UTC)Reply

Also refer to , it think google provided free TEXT_DETECTION only for the OCR usage. -- Eatcha (talk) 15:12, 13 June 2019 (UTC)Reply
@Eatcha: Oh wow, looks like they do have that now. Looks like it's relatively expensive too compared with the other services. Let me look into this further and see what we can do. kaldari (talk) 15:35, 13 June 2019 (UTC)Reply

globalsearch review

Hi, we're doing a review to make sure as many tools meet a minimum standard. I noticed globalsearch doesn't have a description, licence or a published repo. Could you add these information to this tool? Thanks! Komla Sapaty (talk) 22:44, 9 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
