Lets try to keep this on topic, please.

This thread is for problems that are occurring with the project, not how it can be improved.

Quoted for emphasis. Posts that are about anything other than current server and related problems are going to be moved and/or hidden. This (important) thread is where basically the entire forum turns to for answers when there are issues. Please keep improvement suggestions and other commentary to other threads, and thank you.

Well, with NNT set i was able to return all my completed work, and then after that ask for more (naturally none available).
But now the forums are getting slower & more & more Scheduler requests are erroring out.

It's been a while now since we've had a half decent recovery, let alone a good one.
The servers really are struggling badly these days.


No word on the new NAS or upload server?

Still struggling to return any work even with NNT. Just time out and backs off an hour each attempt. Even with the watch update script.

Pattern repeating from the previous three weeks. No replacement work able to be pulled the entire day of Tuesday after the project returns. Go to bed, wake up Wednesday with a full cache.

8.05, 8.00 & 8.22 aren't tasks. They are the versions of the applications that process them.
If you run Stock Seti, the BOINC Manager will try several different application versions to find which one is best, then it will continue to use that application (although it does sometimes get it wrong).

If you go to your account
and click on the "View" of "Computers on this account",
then Click on "Details" for a computer,
you will find an option "Application details" with a "Show" option.
Clicking on that will give the details of which applications have been tested.

You should find that the applications with the highest "Average processing rate" are the applications in use. That could be up to four applications as there CPU and GPU apps for MB and AP tasks.

yeah 8.00 has more GFLOPS than 8.05 (almost 38.8 vs 25.5), makes sense...

And here. But a significant proportions of it is made up of shorties from 21my13ag: I do wish they had the resources to monitor the contents of the tapes they want to re-run, and not mount tapes like this at sensitive times of the week.

Greetings,

So, what happened to all those 3, 4, 5 hour maintenance Tuesdays? It now takes my hosts a boat load of time to recover from the outage. My main has still not fully recovered from yesterdays; it still does not have a full cache. My overall RAC drops by 9 or 10K on Tuesdays now and it takes all week to get it back up to almost its sweet spot just to have it drop again on the following Tuesday. It would be nice to see 3, 4, 5 hour maintenance periods again. Just wonderin'... :)

Have a great day! :)

All the hosts returning the results they crunched during the downtime made the assimilation backlog shoot up. This in turn made the database break the 20 mil result limit so the splitters were throttled making new work hard to get.

But the problem seems to be ending. I still get lot of '0 tasks' contacts but despite of this my cache is now slowly filling up instead of depleting.
