Looks like the Cricket Graph has taken a nose dive.

http://fragment1.berkeley.edu/newcricket/grapher.cgi?target=%2Frouter-interfaces%2Finr-250%2Fgigabitethernet2_3;view=Octets;ranges=d

Quoting from Lunatics:

The grapevine says 'Gowron failed a drive and is hung. It will probably be 3-4 days to re-sync the RAID array, so no work until then.'


3-4 days is no problem whatsoever. As long as this board stays up, so I can keep myself amused, reading all posts complaining and whining about what disaster it is, and how incompetent SETI staff is :-)

The grapes that are growing on the grapevine, you mean? Yes, they are sour indeed. But don't shoot the messenger, please - only trying to help :-)

Of course, Richard.
Your messages here are always welcome...the grapes are not always...LOL.

Obviously not too bad. From S@H home page:

Storage Server Issues
The server that stores our workunits crashed last night, but is recovering now. We hope to be fully back on line in a couple hours. 14 Apr 2011 | 16:51:19 UTC

Looks like we are back online. Normal catch-up dropped connections seem to be in play.
Also the BOINC Stats images are fixed.

Panic is creeping in here. I have a terrible problem finding any problem with the project right now.

I may have to type format c: in a cmd window, to create a problem....

Hmmm... that would only wipe the one partition.
I like a nice
C:\diskpart
DISKPART> select dive 0
DISKPART> clean

If that is to much you could do a boinccmd --set_network_mode never 5184000.
Sixty days of no network comms would defiantly cause a tiny bit of worry for BOINC.

That looks a useful cmd, if you don't want it to comm for a while (not 60 days).

SETI must be having server problems again. Taking forever just to download 2 workunits.

No problems, just a bunch of AP WOrk Units being distributed. An hour or 2 & the network traffic will drop off again & things will speed up.

Those bursts, with maxed out bandwith, indicate, too much host trying to connect, at the same time, I think, in some cases, looking at the download speed,
which is wrong, cause it's UPLoads causing the trouble, although sometime also
DownLoad, but I never experienced this, files come through complete, or not
at all, which is a good thing, NetWork improvement as well hardware (GigaBitLAN) as software, fetching ahead, f.i., works very well.

Lots and lots of work, specially AP and MB and a lot VLARs and now I've been without power 12 hours, now restored,
2 rigs were shutdown, very rare a power outage in the Netherlands.
I'd almost forgotten about them, since the last major power outage in the north,
Groningen, happened about 30 years ago!

But it's also still hot, also very strange, 20C, a.t.m(past midnight). makes you wonder...........

Maybe cause, there is one thing, which I never did change, my cache setting of 4 days and I've never been completely out of SETI work! (Well, maybe
one time.) B.t.w. I'm going way too fast, looking at deadlines of a month...,
but a lot of the 'forum visitors and writers', do have a much higher throughput, also widely known and famous as R(ecent)A(verage)C(redit), since
the LUNATICs, whats else could you expect, made an CPU app., doing almost twice
the stock throughput and last, but not least, CUDA 'fell out of the sky' inmediatly
taken care of, again by the notorious LUNATICs, produced, after weeks of non-stop,
hard work, a beatifull shiny new app. x32F, included in the widely known,
Universal Installer 0.37.................. To be continued soon.......
Sorry for making such a fuzz........

(Maybe start, my 'other two' the crunching rigs, an i7-2600(+2xEAH5870+AP ATIrev516 app) and a Q6600+GTS250(SSSE3 CPU& CUDA x32f), before I go to sleep, hoping it'll cool down a bit during the night.)

Gonna 'give a few cores' to CPDN, since our weather/climate seems to
be more rapidly changing, then accounted for, so to speak.......


But, ehh, right, SERVERS (&) PROBLEMS, well, they aren't wanted, or needed,
or included, nor payed for, but somebody has to check, chase Murphy and stop him!

Those download bursts are batches of APs being issued by the scheduler. Unlike MB which is available all the time, AP gets issues in batches, apparently. Means once you see one of those surges, that's the time to request work for APs. The quiet period between them, it is fairly unlikely to get any.
