DSL Extreme thought Seti@Home was down for maintenance of all things, I told them that others were having no trouble posting and such, looks like their working on It as It's starting to be snappy again here. Yay!

Hello PerryJay,

i have to "Push" Uploads by "Try again" Button. Boinc Software does not send ready Packages automatic to Seti Server.

The servers are still very busy and it is hard to get uploads through. It will probably be this way for at least a day or two. Especially since tomorrow is maintenance day. Your uploads should start going through on there own before long.

We all know the limitations of the connections to the servers, until the university change this is or SETI is "outsourced" to a better connection, then problems will occur. I don't care about RAC, I care about being part of a project that may ultimately make a difference to everyone on this planet. The question of "are we alone?"

I dont have the resources to be able to make a mega-cruncher machine, so am happy with what I can do on my resources available, crunching away 24/7 and if I run out of work, ah well.

The point being, things do get sorted at some point, the guys know what needs to be done but they are also busy doing other stuff, that probably 99.9% of us will never see/ know about behind the scenes.

If Matt is busy with his music career over summer and doesn't post then that is his choice, updates about his music career perhaps in Cafe Seti would take our minds off any problems. Some of the pictures Matt has posted of his hiking vacations have been spectacular scenery and well worth looking at.

So the all important Kepler data sits in a box being "pre-processed and crudley analyzed?

It seems priorities are akilter in SETI's lab. I'm sorry so little funding is allocated and that the staff is but part time. Recommend they focus sharply and perhaps allow volunteer's to write stuff up with a a daily tech brief to the chosen authors. This would releive the staff from the tedium of keeping the people who are processing the data for the project informed as to what's about..

Let's load up the KEPLER data and process it and put the other stuff on the back burner for later.

One mans humble opinion...

Hi all,

the last days are really boring. The upload does not function and if it works a lot of my Results are lost anywhere in the Net. My Computers are running all Day and Night. But there is no raise in Points. I hope Seti will soon solve this problem.
Greets Gerhard


Nothing is lost in the Inet. ;-)

If BOINC ULed successful a result it's on the main database.

Currently the replica database is offline, from there the hosts/WUs/results lists are shown/updated.

The cricket graph again shows that the upload server is down. The status page shows it up.
I agree that the SETI staff should let a volunteer write the system status to keep the volunteer crunchers informed.

The SETI staff is lucky that some volunteer crunchers keep reminding other volunteer crunchers that there's a "use-by date" on the server status page.

AND PLEASE STOP POSTING ON A MONTH-OLD NEWS THREAD!!

Sorry for shouting, but it starts getting really annoying that the posts have nothing to do with the topic of the thread.

Well, Gundolf, it looks like the posters simply check for the latest time noted for a comment on a likely thread. Ahh..., as I do. However, I tend to restrain myself from commenting and just read about the problems others are having. (And usually only when I am suffering problems on my end.) This lets me know that SETI has had some glitches and I'm not alone with being unable to upload, D/L, and so forth. Misery does love company, after all. LOL! I do agree with you that it's better to choose the appropriate board for the subject if one wishes to actually make a comment.

However, if SETI has a long enough downtime, I hope the crunchers will contribute to the other, worthwhile, distributed computing projects like Einstein, Climate, or whatever science project piques their interest.

It's my personal feeling that if more cycles were spread out with other projects, SETI wouldn't be as overloaded. And if one only desires to participate in a single project I recommend not with LHC. ;-P

Maybe if we ask nicely (or start using the red-x), the MODs will police the NEWS and TECH NEWS forums a little more strictly, and move some of the off-topic posts to the appropriate threads in Number Crunching (8{)

Oops

I had just been reading "storage service is back up", which is almost a month old.

Nevertheless, I think my complaint adequate for both threads.

Sticking to technical news to at least some degree, I notice over the past 2 days the cricket is giving an unusual pattern showing a moment of 'downtime' after regular periods, say every 2 hours. What's causing this?

For whatever reasons, the splitters seem to be unable to work fast enough to maintain a 'ready to send' cache. So at times, there is little work going out.
Thus, the 'feathering' seen on the Cricket graph.

Maybe that's by design, something they did to make the ageing Bruno's life a bit less stressful.
