With the SETI Gauntlet running, there is approx another 20-30% load on the download servers/bandwidth.

It should calm down a bit in about 10 days.

I think that is debatable....
There are 243 users participating in the Gauntlet, some of us whom were already crunching Seti full time.

That could not possibly have much of an additional impact on the servers, much less 20-30%.........

The Gauntlet contest has little to do with it, in my estimation.

True. The current shorty storm will have a much bigger impact.

Apart from the inbound traffic a couple of hours before 12:00hrs and the couple of hours afterward.

Does S@H share the same pipe with SETI Beta? If so, perhaps the GPU app testing over there is adding to the problem.

Yeah, I noticed all of Friday that every time an AP finished and tried uploading, it would end up with "connect() failed" anywhere from 5-30 times, but eventually went through. Seems to have smoothed out a bit since around 2200UTC Friday though.

I am not micro-managing, but the kitties are maintaining cache on 9 rigs, so things can't be just too bad.

As of now, there's only 250 old AP 505 results out in the field. That number is slowly coming down to zero.

Will the world end when that number hits zero? Will that be the moment when the rapture starts?

No but I hope it will be the moment when the guys at Berkeley decide to do something about the ca 12000 AP results returned awaiting validation which presumably are all the in limbo third returns within deadline after returns 1 and 2 were already validated. I have 4 of those, the only 4 AP5's I still have and would quite like my credit + interest as two of them have been waiting since last August.

Well, I have 5 of those myself. For three of them I've been granted credit, but two are still in pending state.

Here's my hanger..
Just from February. I turned in my result a little over an hour after the validating result. And it has been stuck since. I suspect this example is what is keeping a lot of those stuck in the DB. Perhaps Richard could plant a bug in the proper ear to get them to have a look at this situation and determine why the process has failed to clear it out.
Not that I am worried about the credit, they only got 73.93 creds anyway....LOL.

I have 11 of these. First one was in August last year, last one is from March this year (was a mistake - which I quickly corrected - to leave the 505 application in my app_info.xml because practically all remaining 505 are resends now.)
It's a shame because these WUs are probably not assimilated into science DB.

As I understand it, the good thing from SETIs point of view is that these will all have been entered into the science database on the basis of the first two results which did validate. Of course from a crunchers point of view this is a bad thing as it gives the Berkeley guys no incentive to fix the bug that is causing the problem and award us our credit!

I am sure there is still incentive on their part to maintain and clear out the database.
I should not be surprised if this is not looked at soon....assuming somebody points them to this discussion.

I hope so, I was hoping that the reason why AP6 were not showing up on the server status page was that they wanted to know when AP5 being processed reached zero so that they could then do something about all the limbo WUs and clear all AP5s frrom the system. But that may just be wishful thinking on my part.

Well of my 4 limbo jobs I actually had 1 move on so I'm now down to 3.
