Message 1055677 - Posted: 13 Dec 2010, 18:03:35 UTC - in response to Message 1055675.

Sorry to be such a pain, but I still cannot get work units. I uninstalled and reinstalled SETI severasl times and still I can get zero work units. What might I be doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Jaye Ellen

Right now, Worf had a problem, and they are out of work units. Hopefully later today more work should be flowing. If your still having problems, post in the Number Crunching thread, and provide a copy of your messages tab, and folks there will be more than willing to help you out.

The WU creation is currently down if you read above.

Look for "SETI@home Message from server: Project has no tasks available" in the message tab of bonic.

To make absolutely sure everything is setup right check your s@h preferences (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project) and make sure you see "SETI@home Enhanced: yes" (for MB) and "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? yes" (for astropulse).

The trouble with a drive failure in a RAID is that it can take some time to get things back on an even keel once the drive has either been removed or replaced. Its wise not to make too much of a demand on the array while this is automagic restructuring of the array is taking place.
So take a deep breath and be patient.

Sorry about the double-post; I looked for the original posting but for whatever reason missed it. Thank you for the update on Worf's status!

what am I doing wrong? Removed and reinstalled twice, can not get any work units. It is a small, slow machind but it WAS doing something for the cause, but now it does absolutely nothing. Any help is mucdh appreciated!

Jaye Ellen Burke

This is a question that should've been placed in the Number Crunching forum but if you had bothered to read the other posts in this thread you would've have posted this in the first place.

Cheers.

It's late in the day so I don't feel like starting another thread, but the raid resync finished up and I just fired up the splitters. We'll see how this goes. I'm not entirely certain we're out of the woods yet.

Matt, do you have time to check the upload servers? Still nothing shifting here, and not as much as I'd expect on Cricket, either.

Edit - OK, they seem to have started just as I typed. Now we just have congestion ;-)

One word, ZFS.

ZFS don't need to rebuild the empty space. Does this server have a hardware raid solution? I thing software raid is faster now, especially since multiple core processors. Also in the same sence that software modems gave you a lower ping in on line games.

Message 1055778 - Posted: 14 Dec 2010, 1:40:15 UTC - in response to Message 1055515.

FYI, a disk failure on worf (the raw data storage server) which locked up the RAID requiring a cold reboot (and nobody is around/able to get up to the lab to do so). Only public downside is we ran out of work to send. This'll get fixed Monday morning.

- Matt

No hot spare! Never seen a degraded array which needed a reboot.

lots of work is flowing out, looks like the splitters kept running at least for a while when the hiccup happened.

edit, results ready to send is building. one has to wonder why the download server can't keep up, denial of service as has been posted many times before sounds like the culprit.

?? There's no reason to think the download servers couldn't deliver more work if the download link could handle it. In the first 5 hours after the splitters were turned on, the Schedulers told hosts to download more work than the link can handle. It would have taken over 116 Mbps of bandwidth to actually get the increase in "Results out in the field" delivered. The splitters are of course producing new work even faster, that's where the growth in ready to send comes from.

It looks like something happened again overnight. Ready to send is back down to 1 as of 0530 CST. Four splitters are showing "Not running." [edit]That's four out of five mb splitters down, in addition to the two ap splitters that were disabled last night and still are.[/edit]

It appears I got one new task, though.

Look a few cm's to the right of where you looked and all will be revealed (hint: Splitter Status - MB-tape-progress)

What strikes me is with the splitters offline (empty it appears, except for AP)
that the bandwidth has stayed maxed for over 2 hours.

Yep Oscar sure made short work of those files but I'm sure that someone will throw several more in in the morning. ;)
