I too am continuing to experience a severe inability to fill the cache on my hungry machine with endless time-outs. I have even "reboot", whatever that is...

Does this mean we now have to babysit a choice of proxy just to keep a reliable cache?

I am on the verge of stopping SETI on this machine for another project.

That would probably be for the best. I doubt the server connections will ever be reliable enough for you as long as continuous excessive demands are placed upon them without upgrading the server hardware and getting a bigger pipe.

Future increases in client hardware capabilities is only going to exacerbate the situation.

Why? What has changed over the past few weeks? It's been fine for a year.

You really don't know?

Client software.
Server software.
Server hardware.
Client hardware.

I'm pretty sure all of that has been mentioned in various posts over the last year.

Another possibility would be to run another project together with SETI. I'm doing that on my X2, Rosetta and SETI, one core for each.

I've NNTd SETI & turned on PG & immediately had a flurry of PG work. I was trying to max-out what I could do with SETI, hence being so frustrated being unable to maintain constant production. So PG it is for now. The year goal of 2^25 SETI units is cancelled.

No, after you find a working proxy it works for days/weeks normaly, eventualy if they cut your access you need to change, but normaly this only happens with heavy users that have a lot of fast computers (normaly with few GPUs) and uses a lot of bandwith and connection slots, so normal user must not have this problem.

Now I just need to boost the amount of work that the replacement for the GTX-460 is munching though.

So far I've had no supply problems at all keeping my 3 recently upgraded rigs fed.

Was looking through my task list and noticed an interesting one.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1019698161

_0 (stock) and I (_1) (r557) were inconclusive, it got sent to _2 (stock), and all three are inconclusive now. Got sent to _3 (stock) and we're awaiting the fate presently.

Indeed so. Worked out in my favor this time.

Thanks guys. I've gotten some downloads since my original post. I don't know what happened, but I kept getting the "no work available" message. Things are starting to look up now though ;)

Thanks again!

Someone change the rules? I'm getting a lot of VLARS in the batch of 6.10 MB cuda tasks that I'm downloading. Thought that was a no-no???

I know Eric added the OpenCL ATI Astropulse app today, so that might have changed something on the scheduler.

My 560 has about 20, but my 670 has not asked for any more work yet.

Yes, but not when I posted this alert to a server problem. Agree discussion s/b there.
