Message 908956 - Posted: 18 Jun 2009, 22:36:40 UTC

Some things got lost in the server reboot chaos/mayhem yesterday. One being that results were not being correctly stored on disk, despite all diagnostics showing otherwise (the incoming traffic looked normal, the upload apache servers were responding with "200" status, all the BOINC backend queues were nice and low). However, after rebooting the upload server yesterday the result RAID partition failed to mount. Actually this is a known quantity - there's something odd about this particular RAID partition that requires human intervention after every reboot to get going. Well, that human intervention didn't happen. Oops. Anyway, this was ultimately discovered thanks to various complaints from various parties, and fixed. Hopefully not too much headache/annoyance out there as the backlog of failed results clears out and corrects itself.

The new splitter method is now in production - where we're getting counts from a regularly updated table rather than each splitter process making the same redundant query over and over again. This would seem like a job for triggers, and we may go that route, but we already had the programming/plumbing in place to make this table (i.e. the process that collects numbers for the server status page, which already displays those same counts) - so this was easier to implement. We'll see if we get less network dips over the next few days...

Matt,
I completely agree with the summary table approach. I've used this is many business applications with good success. And it's a lot cleaner & easier to manage than triggers.

Likewise from me. I've used the same technique as well. Database purists will likely baulk at the idea, but the rest of us can get on with dealing with the real world.

Hello all -

The 10 year anniversary event is now a month behind us. Can someone poke the responsible folks and ask them to get those videos posted? I really would like to watch those presentations.

I don't keep up with all of these threads so I apologize if this has been covered recently in another thread ...

1) They graduated and it evaporated.
2) I thought you were supposed to hit record?!
3) What do you mean you didn't record the live stream?
4) Needed a "blank" tape for the frat party.
5) Promises, promises ...

Actually, it means "greetings *from* Hungary"...

"üdv magyarországban" would mean Welcome to Hungary.

Google still has a long way to go before they'll crack Hungarian grammar. Can't transliterate because word order is sometimes backwards, and there are 26 cases, compared to Finnish with 15 and English with just 5!

the -ról suffix is a form of 'from' pertaining to the word it is attached to, like "from off the top" of something. The others are -ból and -tól which also mean "from", but "from inside" and "from it or the vicinity" respectively...
the -ban suffix means 'in' - so "üdv magyarországban" transliterates as "Welcome in Hungary",,,

Sorry, pet subject... Hungarian became my 2nd language at the age of 40, and is amazing how it works. Never too late to learn!

Looks like something nasty has happened to the database. The bit-transmission rate has a 12-hour hole in it, the replica is an hout behind and there is no new work.

The dead spot wasn't Seti, it was the campus network monitoring system/software itself that died.

there is no new work.
