And to go with the lack of Scheduler responses, upload speeds are very, very, very slow. And it can take a couple of attempts for a result to finally upload.

My machine have mostly:

Scheduler request failed: Timeout was reached


The last well contact (BOINC got all needed infos from the server) was at 05:31 UTC - and my machine got 1 re-sent WU.

In the online host/tasks overview are WUs which are not yet in BOINC.
So much re-sent WUs will come down soon - or later.

I guess overloaded scheduler server with too much BOINC requests currently.
And overloaded internet connection of S@h because of AstroPulse WU downloads.

Yup.....
APs appear to be back in play and they are really trashing comms again.

The kitties are having timeouts, no connects, and HTTP internal server errors when trying to upload, download, or report work.

We need MORE BANDWIDTH.

Or at least, better utilization of what we have available.

I know Brad at GPUUG is working on some projects that may help these problems in the future, but for now, the kitties are as flummoxed as the rest of you.

Please do what you can to support the GPUUG fundraisers as Brad posts them. He is in very close contact with Eric and staff as to what they need.

Certainly nothing wrong with that either, Uli.
LOL...Cash is king, as they say.
The GPUUG route does target items that the boyz in da lab have spec'd out and designated as priority.
And the GPUUG helps handle the purchase and shipping of such items, rather than the lab having to go through Berk channels to cut purchase orders and such.
Really more efficient for the project.

It also does give folks the knowledge of exactly what their donation is being spent on, rather than going into a general fund.

Both direct donations to SETI and via the GPUUG are equally important. We just focus on specific hardware that may be needed for A or B which frees up direct cash donations for other avenues.

But agreed, more bandwidth would solve an enormous load of problems.

I've been finding all day that even though I'm receiving internal http errors and timeouts on my end, the database has been showing that I've reported the results but I'm just not receiving the acknowledgement back from the servers.

Cheers.

I've set NNT and limited <max_tasks_reported> to five, and i am managing to report tasks, but not on every attempt.

I think they need to put a throttle on the number of APs that can go out at one time.

Since the MB's crunch for long periods without any AP's available, perhaps the AP's should be released more slowly to relieve the congestion.

Overnight one of my systems was able to report some work. Once. Every other attempt has resulted in a Scheduler timeout. My other system has had nothing but Scheduler timeouts.
Something is seriously wrong.

Very strange....
Although recent attempts to report work have resulted in the following set of messages:
01/11/2012 18:12:03 Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
01/11/2012 18:12:03 SETI@home Scheduler request failed: Timeout was reached
01/11/2012 18:12:05 Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Tasks are being reported as I'm getting tasks returned, validated and credited, I'm not getting the "returned receipt" message to clear them from my hosts...

One of my hosts is getting nothing but scheduler timeouts and http errors. Uploads work fine.
The only difference between this and other host is it's on a different network using different ISP.
Scheduler requests DO get through to server, but no response is received. This host has now probably collected more "lost tasks" than it could ever process in time.

Edit: All my tasks suddenly got marked as "Abandoned" on server (all of them!!) but I didn't touch the boinc in any way and it still has its cache and crunches!

My last successful scheduler request was at 5:24 am EDT, also got resent 8 lost tasks when that happened. Before that it was 6:58 pm EDT on the 31st with failures in between and since. Currently have 22 Ghosts out there, since the 5:24 am update.

No problem with reporting here. Of course I'm not reporting more than one or two at a time, being a very small cruncher. Two AP's downloaded, but I can't get any more even though the server status shows there are 7000 available. I think they've been put on hold at the servers.

The thing is, larger tasks ought to be better users of the bandwidth, as you have less time establishing contact with the client and so on. For some reason SETI@Home doesn't gain that advantage.
