I haven't bothered with trying No New Tasks. Still getting work, but still getting Scheduler time outs & errors. Although not as many as i have been.

Can't remember if I've mentioned this in the past before, but it is slightly annoying for me to do my spreadsheet of all of my AP tasks when maintenance day comes around. Reason being that validated tasks that are less than 24h old get purged during the database compression/backup.

I'm not complaining at all. I understand and agree with the purpose of doing the database maintenance, but it gets slightly frustrating sometimes when I know in the AM I report 5 completed tasks, and in the PM, there's no trace of them on the tasks page, so my spreadsheet just ends up with a few rows of zeroes and a comment of "missed it."

Cycling back and forth between VLARs and shorties,with a few mid-range tasks thrown into the mix for flavoring, and the occassional AstroPulse ti keep it interesting. Wheeeee- hah!

Scheduler request failed: Timeout was reached

(with and without *no new tasks*)

.. a PC of someone other have also problems to reach the SETI@home scheduler server?


[EDIT: It looks like it was only a temporary problem (the last 1 or 2 hours), now again reachable for my PC.]

There is no point you reading this.
You already know that you can not download any new work .
you are fed up with seeing `A timeout was reached` blaa blaa
the internals of the servers have errored again
They are as reachable as ETs phone
and reporting work is as regular as a broken clock.
windge
moan

poot
whatever.............
itl fix
when the servers get their new switch
until then
all i can do
is carry on
and bitch

Up to 400 timed out errors now. Time sent - completion on some is measured in minutes.

Sad day.

Question 1: Is there a problem connecting to SETI servers?

Answer 1: Yes there is.

Question 2: Do I care?

Answer 2: No, I do not care, because Boinc is designed to take care of problems like this itself, and in the end it does exactly that. It may take hours or days, but ultimately Boinc will upload/report/download.

Chill folks, chill. There are other things in life to do, than to sit in front of a screen worrying about why Boinc doesn't connect to SETI exactly when YOU expect it to connect, or want it to connect.

Turn off the screen, and go do something else for a couple of hours, days, or weeks if needed, and when you come back BOINC will have sorted out the upload/report/download of the tasks you stare at with almost bleeding eyes.

No problems here reporting and downloading slow but that's normal.

What do like to do with VLARs on GPU?

A checkbox "prefer VLAR for CPU" (enabled by default), which would make the scheduler search for VLARs in case of CPU work request (just like it's searching for non-VLARs in case of GPU work request), would however make sense.

VLAR + Radeon 4870 working good.

VLAR + Nvidia GeForce means troubles.

Well, depends on your definition of "working good". IIRC from other thread here, the performance on VLARs was pretty poor compared to "normal" tasks.

Cpu gets VLAR anyway and things may get complicated or awkward server side if a switch was made for them.
For GPU i have not seen a VLAR download in a month,
Just thinking aloud for a way to get lots of them (or any)
a silly thing to do :¬)

Well yes, CPUs get VLARs, but it would be better, if the server specially check if it can send any of those to a CPU before sending something else (in case user accepts MB work). If the next request is for a GPU, more GPU compatible tasks would be available. I also don't think it would be that complicated, the scheduler already checks what the user wants to have, i.e. MB and/or AP and if he accepts other tasks if the prefered ones are not available. VLAR would be just prefered for CPU, if not available other MB (or AP) WUs would be send.

Hmm,
All is not quite well :-(
For the last 24hours one of my crunchers has been suffering interminable time-outs. The symptoms are lots of "servers may be off line", failed to connect HTTP errors, and just a general "laziness" on the connection. Uploads are painful on both crunchers, but one reports every so often, but my main one just refuses to do so, resulting in a huge queue to be reported (last connection was about 08:00UTC on the 18th - and its online 24/7, sharing the same router a the other cruncher which connected OK at about 05:00UTC on the 19th).

Oh well, off to work and see if clears while I'm out of the house....
