Hmmmmm...
Thought da boyz in da lab woulda been doing a little tyre kicking by this time, but the ol' Crickets are not responding yet.
Kibble supply still hanging in there.

EDIT...
Somebody's got their kicking boots on now. Splitters offline and Crickets have dropped off.
Hopefully it's a quick fix.

I have my max transfers set for 5, though I hardly ever get more than 1-2 tasks at a time anyway.

About the only thing you can do to get the work that you have been assigned is to either deal with the back-offs, or use a build that isn't so bad with the back-offs. 6.10.58/60 gets recommended frequently.

Personally, since I don't need/use GPUs, I use 6.2.19. Back-offs are per transfer and not global. If there is one transfer in back-off, scheduler request is postponed until at least one transfer starts flowing, and the maximum back-off is 3:59:59.

Just throwing options out there.

[edit] Speaking of the download pipe.. just got an AP and it is downloading at 175KB/sec. [/edit]

Well there was a burst of network traffic for a while thre, but untill the validators & assimilators clear the backlog i don't think we're going to see much work.
4 hours ago was the last time i managed to get some work- 2 WUs.

Or perhaps has anyone a tip for getting a more reliable DL of WU's?

Thanks

You'll be buying them 25 extra download servers, then? :P

Seriously, this is a community, distributed project, with tens of thousands of users jostling for a scarce resource. I would prefer to see solutions based on collaboration, rather than competition and exclusion.


I have to agree - and looking at how many hosts this person is responsible for, I sure hope that they don't all have that sort of setting. Good grief - talk about selfishness.

Cliff,

You can't go. That's part of the contract you signed before you downloaded your first WU.

I'm thinking, "laptop." I'm thinking, "some way to recharge a big 12v battery."

In 20 minutes, it will have been a whole 48 hours since the last post to this thread. Other people have started threads about problems they're having, but they don't seem to be general problems affecting everyone. The crickets are maxed, but things seem to be going smoothly.

What is this world coming to?

As soon as the last person leaves the office on Friday evening, the gremlins will come out.

snafu -- which the dictionary I had as a schoolkid translated as "Situation Normal, All Fouled (euphemism) Up"! When I was an instrument scientist at a large physics lab in Switzerland it was almost inevitable that something would fail after 1800 on Friday, while I was still there but after the more office-hours-minded IT and engineering staff had left.

Not a good sign. Ready to Send continues to fall, but the splitters haven't cranked up the pace. Few more hours & work will be very scarce.

Network traffic has dropped off, Ready to Send still has plenty to go, the last dozen or so requests for work have got "Project has no tasks available" messages.
There was a spike in database activity for a while there- almost 3,000 queries per second, usually it's aronound 600. Hopefully once it settles down again we'll be able to get more work.

Hmm, there's a blockage somewhere.
Plenty of work available, but network traffic isn't maxed out. After an outage, and with the limits raised further (or even removed) it should remain maxed out probably until the next outage.

My last bunch came down without problems and so fast I went to see why...

Server Status Page shows no AP are being split. AP account for quite a bit of the bandwidth as we've seen in the past when there were none. Good news for filling the caches all round.

True, but considering the network traffic before the outage & the raising of the limits, i wouldn't expect the network traffic to drop off for at least 3 days.
And when network traffic isn't at maximum resuests for work rarely result in "Project has no tasks available" messages, but 80% of my scheduler requests are resulting in that message indcates something isn't quite right.
