Message 991016 - Posted: 22 Apr 2010, 4:28:46 UTC

We had a couple of problems tonight. ptolemy, our main file server for user accounts went down at about 5:05pm. Of course that's 5 minutes after Matt and Jeff left, so that left me as the default sysadmin. They're both more patient than I am and are less likely to just pull the plug out of the wall.

So I rebooted ptolemy, and it crashed again about 5 seconds after it came back up. And again. And again. Eventually I figured out that vader was trying to do a lot of writes to ptolemy and that was causing the crash.

I couldn't get vader to respond to anything, so I just pulled the plug out of the wall. I tried a few times to restart it, but it just hangs during the boot process. So our assimilators are down, among other things. We may run out of work at some point.


Hopefully Matt or Jeff will fix it tomorrow.

Eric, thanks for the update!

One of two DL server offline.
Cricket graph show normal traffic.

My BOINC can UL & report/request work.
But can't DL.

Thanks for the Always Welcome update Eric!

You and I seem to think alike... kick/hit it a few times, if no positive result pull-the-plug and let someone else have a go at it... ;-)

Hopefully the 'Morning Crew' will have a larger hammer...

Not so strange, DNS was supplying the IP addresses of both download servers, if your host was trying to download from the dead one it could only fail. I had to use the "ipconfig /flushdns" to get downloads.

Both are up now, thanks to whoever solved that!

BOINC v6.10.24 and above solved that, with a libcurl bug-fix which properly implements round-robin DNS.

Ohh well..

I got again DL probs.
So I made a reboot, didn't helped (with BOINC V6.10.18).
Then I installed BOINC V6.10.43, but also no joy, no DL possible, although a lot of DLs in the overview.

I like to edit the CPU name in the registry.. :-D
BOINC V6.10.43 or a version earlier don't take longer the CPU name from the registry like it V6.10.18 do, it take the info from somewhere other. My edit wasn't longer showed in BOINC Manager.

So I downgraded to BOINC V6.10.18, deleted the # signs in front of the SETI@home server addresses in my hosts file and BOINC DL now without probs. :-)

I would like if I could update to BOINC V6.10.43+ if a newer version take again the CPU name from the registry. ;-)
Why was it changed?

This has been going on for approximately a week. Is it just me? It seems to have been fixed for most of you.

Any suggestions?

Read the thread you post in?

Two messages above/below yours (depending on how you read threads, if at all :-)) was Richard's message saying:

BOINC v6.10.24 and above solved that, with a libcurl bug-fix which properly implements round-robin DNS.

Since you're still on BOINC 6.10.18, you may want to upgrade to 6.10.43 (the latest recommended) from http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php.

I've been uploading and downloading, I just have at the moment a lot of reporting to do, But that'll clear up in time, Oh and I'm using 6.10.48, So no worries on My part, I'll just wait as I have plenty to do and Boinc on My end will take care of the PC. :D

Last download was at 12:07am PDT on 4/26/2010, Last upload was at 10:53am PDT on 4/26/2010, I don't know is normal or not, But maybe the info will be useful, somehow.

Additionally to what Ageless said it could help to check "Skip image file verification" in Preferences of 6.10.24+ BOINC clients. At least it made my waiting downloads come through.

Folks, In the Couminity menu, the description of THIS (technical News) forum is

Behind-the-scenes technical details and news updates (only SETI@home staff can start new threads)


Every time someone from Berkley posts any news it becomes a "but its still broken ...see! thread which is better of in the Number Crunching forumn cause there is usually a duplicate thread already started there.

30 yrs of IT technical support under my belt, I can understand why they stop posting here.
