And to finish this off, I'll add a mini whine:

Where's the new MB 7 app? As I said before, I will not install AP 6, until MB 7 is released.

That's likely going to be months away, Still waititing for the 6.98 app and the Cuda app, ;-)

Claggy


Well, I can wait. I'm an expert in the waiting game :-)

My RAC will drop like a stone here, when I dedicate 50% of my computers time to Beta, but in a hundred years, who will care about that?

All I can tell ya is the r557 SSE2 v6 app is running very nicely on my top rig.
No need for you to wait for MB v7.


I do run r555 on my Celeron speed demon, but I will not install anything on my other machines until there is a release from Lunatics which includes opt MB V7.

It's not because I can't do it Mark, it's just that I'm a stubborn Swede who doesn't want to do it twice (first the 0.40 install with the AP 6 CPU and ATI, and then a new installation with MB7 when that is released).

I can wait.......And if I have to wait more than 6 months, I can also change my mind.

LOL

OK, who greased the pipe?? I checked a few minutes ago and had a bunch of downloads in backoff. Hit retry and they flew down the pipe at the fastest speed I've ever seen. All of them came down at over 100.KBS

That is usually about the time someone screams "Hey I can not connect!!"

Same here, downloads at around 100kB/s.
Amazing the difference no AP work makes to the network pipes, and every other MB WU isn't a shorty.

I've been seeing some wu's download around the 240kB/s rate.

Whew, something or someone really opened the flood gates the later part of this afternoon. I had one download say 127k, but it went back down to 10 right away. Then gradually it has built and built until I had three downloads coming in at once and all of them at 70 or 80k to start. Just a few minutes ago, one hit around 327k for its brief second of activity. This is what happens sometimes with GPU Grid, but never on SETI for me.

Thank you. Thank you. Either the folks at BOINC or SETI or both have really done good. I hope you know what it was that opened the gates up after about a week and a half of very slow going.

Enjoy it while it lasts.
Download traffic continues to drop. Even uploads are dropping off. Won't be long & it'll all come to a complete halt.

Yes things really do speed up when there are no AP's screwing the pipeline up. ;)

Cheers.

Just checked my downloads- lots of them backing up.
When they do download, they fly. But most of the time they're timing out almost as soon as they start.

Same here they either fail after 4 or 5 seconds or run at hundreds of Kb/sec. To me it looks like about 80 to 90% fail and it's the TCP Connect SYNs that are failing.

06/04/2012 11:24:32 | SETI@home | Backing off 18 min 14 sec on download of 03ja12ab.26773.236.7.10.123

As usual, going through a proxy solved my download problems. Direct connection is a huge FAIL now, as many have pointed out here.
