All I can say is it is so nice to have a cache again! I can make it to Tuesday without running out of work. :D

Steve


You can say that again.

I'm still glad someone did something. Can you imagine how all of these upload and reporting issues are going to begin piling-up every time there is an outage?

Ouch.

Geeze, we're almost at 7 million MB Results out in the field. I can't even remember the last time we were at such a high number.

How high can we go before we're going to make a server or database barf all over the place?

I wonder if the boys and gals in the lab are deliberately trying to find out. If that's that case, just hold tight, it could be a rough ride.

We are doing anything about it, by crunching them as fast as we can. The high number now is a result of that the project removed the limits on how many tasks we could have in our caches.

If it works, it's fine. We're less vurnerable to a project outage, since we have big caches to crunch from, but maybe the project servers will barf at such a high number, who knows....

Now, MB Results out in the field 7,001,148. It was a very long time ago since we had that many MB results out in the field.

According to the news on the main page, we will be down for almost 2 days again, beginning in about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Everything will be down, a total blackout, website and all, including the Boinc site.

I hope all of you have a big enough cache to last for the down time.

See you on Thursday.....

I hope they bring the splitters back online soon, the Ready to Send buffer is rapidly dwindling.

MB splitters are back online. There was a bit of a problem with Gowron earlier but as its tasks have been shifted to the donated JBOD, it turned out not to be a big deal. Gowron is now handling backup storage only.

Here I go again. And I have no days left since my cache is set to 0.1 days cuz I like to share. Too bad more people don't.

I do wonder about that, too. I keep a one-day cache, which is normally enough to cover the weekly outage. If everyone who holds a ten day cache dropped to something more reasonable, there'd be more WUs to share around... and I imagine that WUs would be validated far more quickly too. My 'pending' WU count hasn't gone below 1000 for weeks (it hit nearly 2800 after coming back from the outage). Is it really that good for the project for WUs to be 'sat on' with hosts using huge caches for days before they're actually processed?

Just a thought, not having a go at anyone at all.

The way I see it is that we are all sharing whatever the servers can dish out. This is a huge project, with no telling how much data will need to be crunched before we get any results. Things are definitly heading in the right direction with Seti hardware, so I think the capability to deliver more work to us is increasing. The more work that gets sent out, the better our chances. I run a 5 day cache, and that is 5-6 thousand wu's. I crunch every one of them with few errors or invalids. In order for my rig to do as much science as it can, I don't let in run dry if I can help it.
