Network traffic has dropped off slightly, which isn't a good sign.
My last 8 requests for work resulted in "Project has no tasks available" messages.
Till now, since the outage, maybe as few as 1 in 7 requests got that response.

I've just had a couple of download errors at Seti Beta, so i tried to download one of them with Getright, instead of being the normal 8Mb, it's only 4.1Mb

Since all my wingmen couldn't get all the file eithier, there's probably a failed drive or screwed filesystem out there:

Another issue, maybe...

Although SETI Beta is up, the usual http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/ link gives a 404 not found status for me. http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/ or just http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/beta/ will get the front page, but the cookies (and the certificate for logging in) are all for setiweb. Anyone else seeing the same?
Joe

I'm logged on the the first url already, normally have to go through the certificate error to do so, looking at my account on the 2nd and 3rd url gives me the certificate error,

I had upgraded my Opera browser during the power outage, that seems to have been at least part of the problem as an older version of Opera on my laptop worked OK. But today the new browser is also working on the setiweb URL...

I had one of those, too. I think it's actually related to the problems with 0 byte WUs noted earlier in this thread, the creation time of 15 May 2012 | 19:59:56 UTC is about the same. I had emailed Eric about those and he said that georgem had to be rebooted and the splitters lost their NFS mounts to WU storage in that time period, though he was puzzled why parts of the system thought the files were properly written.

I just noticed I have 2863 Cuda tasks, and 0 CPU tasks. My chiller just cut off, then on, or I never would have known it. I think this is a first. I usually run out of GPU tasks a couple of days before I run out of CPU tasks.

Sounds like you need to do the "uncheck-GPU-tasks-in-Seti-prefs-and-update-project-in-BM" hocus pocus. It has instantly worked for me, three times so far...

I just used the rescheduler to shift a few over to the CPU. My chiller is running constantly again. When more CPU units are downloaded, all will be good.....

Go to your Computing preferences and under "Network usage" you'll see "Maintain enough tasks to keep busy for at least" and ".. and up to an additional" to which I set both for 4 days which gives me 4-8 days of work on hand which sees me by any server/connection problems.

Cheers.

elbeejay is running Boinc 7.0.25, and since Boinc 7 has a new scheduler elbeejay should set his preferences to the following instead:

Maintain enough tasks to keep busy for at least 4 days
(max 10 days).

... and up to an additional 0.01 days

This will cache four days work, and will often ask for work to keep it topped up.

I prefer not to be bugging the servers constantly so others can have their have their fair chance at them plus relieving the pressure on the connection as well.

Just by running Boinc 7 he won't be bugging the server every 5 minutes and 3 seconds, it doesn't work like Boinc 6.10.x

Well with those settings on 6.10.x here I'm only connecting 2-3 times a day.
