I am trying to download the gas cell data from halos. For some halos it is working, but for some (z<0) I get the following error:

sub_prog_url = ""
sub_prog = get(sub_prog_url)

cutout_request = {'gas':'Coordinates,Masses'}
cutout = get(sub_prog_url+"cutout.hdf5", cutout_request)

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 119, in
cutout = get(sub_prog_url+"cutout.hdf5", cutout_request)
File "", line 61, in get
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/", line 840, in raise_for_status
raise HTTPError(http_error_msg, response=self)
requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 500 Server Error: INTERNAL SERVER ERROR for url:

Do you know why this problem appears and how I can solve it? It is strange, because for some halos it is working perfectly but not for all of them (but last week it was working).

Thank you and best wishes,

Hi Moritz,

I would suggest you simply change to in your scripts and API addresses. (The Illustris data is also available here, and using this address will request data from our more robust server at the moment).
