TA, we can always blame Misfit. Actually, I kinda miss him. Wonder how he's doing?

Same here, I still occasionally go look at his profile when I want a grin.

More worryingly, I just got

01/10/2011 18:03:21 | SETI@home | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
01/10/2011 18:03:21 | SETI@home | Reporting 14 completed tasks, requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA GPU
01/10/2011 18:03:21 | SETI@home | [sched_op] CPU work request: 673473.12 seconds; 0.00 CPUs
01/10/2011 18:03:21 | SETI@home | [sched_op] NVIDIA GPU work request: 154670.17 seconds; 0.00 GPUs
01/10/2011 18:04:22 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: HTTP internal server error
01/10/2011 18:04:22 | SETI@home | [sched_op] Deferring communication for 1 min 30 sec

The 14 tasks got reported OK, because the 'in progress' count for that host on the website is now 14 fewer than the number of tasks BoincView is counting - I never got the 'ack' for successful reporting of those tasks, so BOINC locally still thinks they're 'ready to report'.

Edit - whatever it was, was only temporary. The tasks reported properly and were acknowledged a couple of attempts later, and I got some new work.

Looking at the cricket graph for the last 4 days, one would be excused if one confused it with a vital signs monitor connected to a patient with only a few days left to live....


This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.

I can't go to the pub, I just feel too low to get near any place where alcohol can be found. I may drink too much and fall into a manhole, on my way home.

I think I'll just stay at home, crying my eyes out, and posting the occasional whining post.

LOL

Daren't go to pub. The only way i can get uploads and reports through is to sit here constantly hitting the retry button. Just to add insult to injury, I jave got a whole load of 12s megashorties that take 12s to abort and then 12 minutes to upload and another 12 minutes to report. Have to go now still got WU to report again and again and again....

EDIT guess what while I was typing this the report went through. Now I have 14 minutes free till the next shortie finishes. How many pints can I drink in 14 minutes?

Well the cricket graph has almost hit rock bottom, so the sensible decision is go down the pub and check when we get back.

Well it was fun while it lasted.

Pints in 14 minutes? That depends how many you get lined up first, some pubs I know you'd be lucky to get one in never mind drunk, others you could line a dozen or more up and still have time to order another dozen.
Don't bother punishing the re-try button, just retire to the pub, someone has flattened the crickets :-(

Got results gone past expiry now. I'd just like to be able to upload and report them. I have plenty of work on other projects.

Someone must have kicked the routers at HE very hard - yiiihhha
Just got 40 WUs and downloaded them in under 2 minutes, in spite of cricket nearly maxed out - and pinging the servers is as fast as never before (from my point of the world) :-) .


Only short time of happiness, ping on .13 and .16 lost in timeouts :-( - .18 and 20 are as fast as before :-) -

One rig reported on 1 Oct 2011 | 20:55:08 UTC, but only UPLoad, no work.
Also no more work from SETI BĂȘta, see an enormous spike at Milkyway.

I've been getting a good amount of cpu but I don't think either of my computers have received any gpu since the last outtage. Is there not enough CUDA to go around or something else is wrong ?

Boinc will fill it's fastest device first, be it CPU or GPU, then once that cache is full it will fill the other, (it seems to be operating the other way round at the moment through)
You can try reducing your Cache setting until Boinc no longer asks for CPU work, once the HE link behaves itself you should get some GPU work,

If I was Admin in this situation, I would be completely incoherent. These are times that Sadms live on Cheeto's and Mountain Dew.

Something(s) definately stuffed.
Outbound network traffic is barely peaking at 60Mb/s, for a while there it wasn't even peaking at 30Mb/s. This is with both of my machines not having reached the present limits. One of them actually ran out of work because the upload server was down at one stage, and the backoffs from that resulted in it backing off for over 4 hours. At the moment it's backed off for over 6 hours due to the problem with the Scheduler.
Most requests to the Scheduler result in "project has no tasks available", which is odd considering the very low level of network traffic. When it does connect, it gets 2-3 tasks (DCF of 1.2).
However at the present moment all attempts to contect the Scheduler result in failure.

2/10/2011 8:57:30 SETI@home Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
2/10/2011 8:57:30 SETI@home Reporting 6 completed tasks, requesting new tasks for CPU and GPU
2/10/2011 8:57:52 Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
2/10/2011 8:57:52 SETI@home Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server
2/10/2011 8:57:54 Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

and repeat time & time again.
