Yes... what's up with this outage? A week due to a power failure?

Didn't we get them extra UPS the last time?

What I do know (after reading other forums) backup/replica database was/is biggest problem.

Last SSP shows that carolyn is disabled.

The power went down and the array on the database server decided it was degraded, so it went through a mandatory rebuild which took much longer than expected. Once that was completed, it was expected that the database itself could be restored from a backup in a short period of time, but that, too, took longer than expected.

All three of my machines have reported. The two small ones still have old work left. The i7 has been assigned ONE new WU. (Perhaps it realizes it has too much Einstein on board again.)

No joy here -- I'm leaving SETI suspended, working other projects. When I am able to report completed work, I figure to restart SETI with no new work to clear out the existing work units. Then if things stay stable for a while, to restart downloads.

Well that one pushed me over the edge. I have done nothing but seti ever(for 10 years disregard join date I lost my old account somehow)...now I split with Milkyway....

Wish this project wasn't on such a shoe string budget...Wish I wasn't on such a shoe string budget so I could donate more(some).

Hope my quad core and gtx 570 classie make a worthy contribution splitting there time with a second project.

Wish there was a more seti like project than milkyway to get down on.

You should try Einstein@home uses almost the same ideia of SETI, but in place to find an ET they try to find Pulsars, Gravity Waves, etc.

And Einstein seems to fit hand and glove with Seti, which I like, looking for black holes and such, it's something to do, I'm doing 4 at a time on the 590.

Why would RACs go down during an outage? No one's done more or less work than another, so shouldn't RACs freeze during an 8 or so day outage?

No, RAC is derived over time.

If you don't think it's worth it, why are you still here?

No, RAC is derived over time.

And all crunchers were, in effect, in a time out. Thus, project-wise, no time passed.

Yes, the project was stalled but real time was not, therefore everybody's RAC fell.

Well according to the unofficial BOINC wiki, RAC is calculated by summing the old RAC after a decay factor is applied (the rate is 50% every 7 days) based on the amount of time passed since the last time a unit was validated, with the number of credits the newly validated unit had. Now since we've all been offline for about 6 days as soon as one of the units we reported gets validated with a wingman, the RAC gets recalculated and our RAC drops to around 55% of what it was. Of course after we've all got around to reporting our units to the server and the server got around to validate them, our RAC would bounce back up somewhat, but still nowhere near the amount of credits that would be normal if, well, everything was normal.

Of course that assumes that the equation in the unofficial BOINC wiki is correct.
