Message 1083328 - Posted: 3 Mar 2011, 23:07:27 UTC

The replica mysql database is down and will stay down until we can recover it during the next weekly outage on Tuesday. This is fallout from the failed (and recovered) RAID on that system. We thought we'd pushed beyond the minor corruption caused by the short blip, but apparently not. The easiest thing to do is rebuild it from scratch from the master after a backup. In the meantime, carolyn can handle the full load on its own without breaking a sweat.

Bob's been doing a great job keeping the splitters well fed with raw data (even over the weekends). Still, we get gummed up with funny raw data files that break the whole analysis suite for one reason or another. So we spent some time this morning adding some more "broken file" smarts to the software. It's all a work in progress. We're running low on our data backlog for the moment, but Bob's getting more from the off site archives as we speak.

Everything's been running great on this end. Work flowing right along. Thanks for all the hard work you guys have been doing to keep it that way.

I am trying to translate from geek speak to geek speak...
"We're running low on our data backlog for the moment"

I am thinking means.. "things are really flying and we are catching up"

means "lots of work is flowing, and we are in our eternal quest to balance
things out".

Am i close?

I think it translates to, the pantry is almost empty and we had to go on a shopping trip.

I for one am grateful to Bob and his continual efforts to keep the pantry full. Much of the time I see about 200k WU ready to dispatch to the crunchers, so he's doing a good job.

My 3 QUAD crunchers are well fed with MB and a few AP WU's, you're hard work
has certainly payed of.
Great job Matt and Bob! Wishing you a wonderfull weekend.

I'd have used a storeroom/warehouse analogy, but that works, too..

No, you can end up with cookie issues using that. The official URL is http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/

Message 1084181 - Posted: 5 Mar 2011, 20:14:08 UTC - in response to Message 1084134.  

I try to register account in SETI@home beta here https://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta//create_account_form.php?next_url=
In this page I saw message: "NOTE: If you use the BOINC Manager, don't use this form. Just run BOINC, select Add Project, and enter an email address and password."
Ok I think and go to BOINC -> Add Project. I'm use vers 6.12.15(64x) I CAN'T find ETI@home beta in project's list. What I did wrong?

Umm, still (as of this posting 2315 UTC Mar 7, 2011) getting these on Beta:

3/7/2011 3:15:13 PM SETI@home Beta Test Temporarily failed upload of ap_06no10ad_B4_P1_00160_20110220_11008.wu_2_0: transient upload error

Can something be done about this, as I'm about to lose some processed AP WU's to deadline!

(Times are in MST.)

P.S. I wouldn’t worry about a deadline: while nobody's uploading, current WUs can’t reach quorum for validation.
