Since I'll not be using this pc for much longer (I'm moving to my other pc in another town), I need to transfer all completed work. Is it possible to do something, or it will be lost?

Hello :)

I have at least 15 works done and ready to send. Says "sending" but they just "pending" instead :)

I hope you'll sync the RAID soon. I feel like I've found some extraterrestrial signals this time! :) ahah.

Cheers!


I have 175 and 4 more running :)
after 35 minute 179 my work bomb getting greater and greater:)

The upload server will be back on line as soon as they can do so. It's not the end of the world. Thats supposed to be a few months away yet ;-)

First of all, thank you, Jeff Cobb for your update on SETI@Home.

With all Splitters, MB and AstroPulse down and the UPLoad server, too,
as of 27 May 2011 | 11:20:09 UTC, only if they get all SERVERS
working by the end of the day, or we'll have a quiet weekend ahead.

We won't die from it and it's not likely we get invaded by aliens, before
everything is working as it should.

Maybe a good time to do our own maintenance, like cleaning out dust
from our CPUs but specially our GPUs, check and run HD defrag,
perform a DRAM check, etc.

Check, if we don't run outdated, third-party app.'s, if our AV programs are still
'up to date', etc.

B.t.w. nice to see so many, foreign partissipants, wondering what's going on!


SETI is quite famous around Asia as they announced the findings about earth-like planets

I wish I could send you some of the hardware I have here in France.

But it's a bit heavy.

if an admin wants to contact me privately to talk about your storage requirement, maybe then I can see with my company if we have some hardware to donate.

I work with a well known Storage Company (SAN/NAS)


go text them in the SETI Admin page!! I think they are happy to hear this!

The question has been ask multiple times by multiple users, with no response. Why is the upload server disabled? Is this to allow the database to rebuild? How about some answers!

It's the Storage Server that's having it's Raid Rebuilt as the 1st post says, Nothing wrong with the Database Servers,

Yes.

This is a part of a post by Rob Smith earlier this morning...


If previous outages like this are anything to go by then until they are convinced that the RAID is stable they won't turn on the other services like uploads and work unit generation.


Give them time to get the raid stabilized and they are sure everything is running right.

I imagine S@H has no use for an old dual core (two cpus, 4 cores total) tyan s2892 with 8gb ddr400 memory, can up that to maybe 12gb with memory on hand if that's a yes. BTW it's in a 4U Rack Mountable chassis. Most of it's life was spent powered off, It's been on crunching wu's since about February, other than that in a closet. Either noisy or hot, so I didn't end up using it.

Eric, Matt, and Jeff don't read these boards on a regular basis, certainly not when the system is down and they are trying to get it fixed.

I'm a cruncher, not a staffer. I, too, have results ready to upload. I don't know, nor do I need to know, why they took the upload server off-line.

My best guess is that when a result is uploaded, it is not stored on the upload server, but passed through to the data storage drive array which has malfunctioned. If that is the case, there may be no place to put uploaded results, so taking that server off-line makes sense.

When they get either the Storage Server Array fixed, or the temporary storage ready on Thumper, they will turn uploads back on, and tell us about it.

Until then, we wait patiently.

And it gives me something to do reading all these posts.

Read the first post in this thread. SETI isn't sending/receiving WU's right now due to server issues.
