I had the same question. Anyone heard anything official from staff?
They'll tell you on Thursday.

As you can see, the last two requests were more than 1 hour apart, with 20 WUs reported. Is that reasonable ?

As many others have beaten me to it, still-
Yes, with "Store up to an additional 1 days of work" set at 1, then you'll get that sort of behavior.
I've got mine set to 0.04 and it generally asks every 5min or so (with a 4 day cache setting. Yes, I live in hope).

Yep.
I've been trying to stock up on GBT work, but pretty much all i'm getting is Arecibo.

[edit] it looks like you have a reprieve anyway ... it seems it will be a Wednesday outage again this week. It's a good thing that I don't gamble ... my bets don't pay off :(

No, it was a late Tuesday outage. Your bet did pay off :-)

. . Not to be picky but ... :), it was an hour and a half late! ... :( . It didn't start until after I had gone to bed so I didn't get to restore the stockpile on Bertie. He ran out of work and was empty for 2 hours until I awoke and I immediately fixed that when I realised of course.

Well, the splitters were doing well for a while there, but they appear to have run in to problems again.
Ready-to-send was recovering, but now it's declining again.

Gee Wiz, just look at the long list of BLC files queued up on the Server Stats Page.

Are we near the end of Arecibo work?

. . Hi Steve,

. . If you are concerned about your RAC wait until you see what a guppi flood will do to it ... :(

. . [edit] {quaking in fear}

. . I just tried to count them. There are over 100 Blc05 tapes waiting to be split (I counted 124 but my screen is a little slow so I may have miscounted). The Filthy Fives are here in force. We are about to be overrun.

. . The gnarliest (slowest) Blc flavour of them all .... :(

Stephen

Are we near the end of Arecibo work?

I suspect that to be true in the future. We have gone back over just about every Arecibo data tape multiple times now with the ever increasing precision accuracy of the newer apps now. Must have hit the point of diminishing returns by now.

And the flood of BLC data continues with more coming from the southern hemisphere Parkes Array probably this year. Probably should put the Arecibo data into archive and soldier on with the new data.

Eric told EVERYONE this was the future of the project. The small reprieve from going over the old data was to be short lived.

And in not that many years (2 or 3) we will get negative credits/task.
If Credit Screw isn't fixed soon, the fewer computers/GPU you have, the more of the credit/RAC you have now will remain.
So, the best thing when that day comes, is to just stop crunching, and see the multi computer/GPU crunchers that still crunch
lose their credit/RAC rapidly.

Message 1910404 - Posted: 3 Jan 2018, 22:53:53 UTC - in response to Message 1910393.  

Of course in the end Arecibo work will vanish.
Arecibo is out of game and work will only be GBT sooner or later when the old tapes will be entirely reprocessed. I cannot guess when it will happen. It can be tomorrow or in a year for the little nothing I know.

But for this very moment we have 7 splitters working on Arecibo and 8 on GBT, therefore till this situation lasts I expect the ratio will stay the same.
Yes, this is kinda "Titanic has not sunk yet" point of view, but I think reflects the bare present waiting the moment when Arecibo will be history for SETI (unless the observatory will not be repaired, which I really will happen, as much as I feel related to it since I was I child and Seti@home had not yet even been remotely conceived).

Crunch on!
