Message 1307130 - Posted: 17 Nov 2012, 17:34:09 UTC

I'm probably missing something somewhere, but has anyone from the project made any sort of statement or whether the ongoing issues are even being looked at? I can't find anything. Nothing on the home page, which would take someone like two minutes to post. Or anything on the 'News' board. Another two minutes. Tops. If it's there, I can't find it. The appearance is that the staff has buried their heads in the sand. And in the middle of the fund raising drive, that's a dangerous appearance. I increased my donation this year and was planing to add to that in December. Very much questioning that now. I'm not expecting miracles, I realize they have major constraints. But the silence is deafening

It seems that way to me as well, LOTS of end user speculation and suggestions. Some folks saying those who are making suggestions should let the folks back at the shop resolve the problem without the diversion of folks making guesses -- which I'd condone if we had some firm answer that the project folks are aware there is a problem and they are trying first to sift tea leaves to divine the problem and then will proceed to engage the random number generator to attempt to resolve ir (of course this would be couched in much more technical terms) <smile>. Instead we are left to speculate, ruminate, gesticulate and agitate.

I THIS IS MY FIRST TIME

WHAT I THINK IS IF YOU LOOK AT RESULTS IN THE FIELD ..IT IS GOING DOWN SO UNTIL ALL RESEND ARE DONE THE LIMITS WILL STAY ON AT 100 FOR ALL OF US...AND THE RESULT WAITING FOR VALIDATION WILL BE GOING UP.

BEST THING TO DO IS CHRUNCHING AS FAST AS WE CAN AND THE LIMITS WILL BE LEFT FOR ALL.

Once again, ran out of GPU work overnight on both systems- all Scheduler requests resulting in a timeout.


Still trying proxies- results mostly include & whole new bunch of errors when trying to contact the Scheduler- couldn't connect to server, transfered a partial file, failure when recieving data from the peer etc.

Still looking for a new decent proxy- when i finally do make contact with the Scheduler, i then need to bypass the proxy to be able to download the work.

I give up for now.
Proxy (tried 12 different ones so far) or no proxy- it's just a matter of luck if you get a response from the Scheduler or not. Even with NNT set most of the time you don't get one.
Should be out of all work on one system in a couple of hours, the other system by tonight.

All right, all my active crunchers are now in mode "Set & Forget"

No "No New Tasks", proxies, manually update. No any kind of user activity.

"Install and forget"....

Let's wait and see what happens to them and their tasks.

Hope for best, fear for....


Thunder is out of work. Let's wait and see for how long...

On those rare occasions, with NNT set & no proxy when the Scheduler does respond, it's taking at least 2 minutes. Requests for work, even when not reporting tasks, timeout everytime.

EDIT- and maybe or maybe not related to the Scheduler problem, uploads have been very slow lately as well.

It's movie time at the homestead. Streaming Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Judy Dench.

It is funny, affirming, adventurous journey for several newly retired English couples finding a new life in What They Think Is a luxury retirement hotel. Hmhh haha.... It's on Amazon.com for $3. The main crunchers: Amber, Henri, and Lilly (kitties all) are on set and forget till tomorrow later morning. Good luck volunteers; happy proxy dreams. Goodbye kitties. Hope you have enough to eat. Here: a link for the movie:

So not much communication with servers. All those 27 tasks were lost tasks. So no new task for over 24 hours

All those 27 tasks were lost tasks.

Which is work you didn't actually have, but now do.
All i'm getting are timeouts, even with No New Tasks set a timeout is the usual response.

I am wondering if it is possible that the router at the PAIX that went rogue on us before Eric added memory to it has gone bonkers again........

I think your suggestion has merit. The pipe between the lab and the PAIX is full but only a little dribble is reaching us.

Which suggests to me, a pipe blockage at the PAIX, must be the problem.

the other thing I noticed on the tasks I have been allocated recently is that 90% are re-sends, a lot with _3 and _4 suffixes.

On the bright side, due to the current discombobulation I'm 100% sure my internet connection is OK. BOINC tells me. Over and over.

Both using the same modem?
What is the response time for the Mac's Scheduler requests?

We may have discovered the Wimps not the Weakly Interacting Massive hypothetical particles which may be the main (or only) component of Dark Matter, a form of matter which emits and absorbs no light and which comprises approx 75% of all mass in the observable universe,

but the Wimps of the Internet, Macs and Unix systems seem to fair well
while Windows systems are Wimps weakly trying but massively failing to
communicate with SETI.
