With all of these power outages I have read about recently cursing the eastern limits of the Berkeley campus I can't help but wonder if Pacific Graft & Extortion has a personal grudge against the university.

CPU work continues, but the GPU is getting bored.

Am I safe in saying that the Seti@Home servers are now down for the next few days? Not able to get any work.

You would be correct. Today they will be doing repairs to the server closet air conditioner. It will take two days ( hopefully ) And probally Wednesday they will do the weekly outage.

When they do get back online expect the pipes to be plugged up for a day or two.

I would think that, depending on just when the AC repairs are finished, they will probably just do the weekly maintenance when they bring everything up but before going live with it. With any luck, that will still be Tuesday.

(Or, the way luck sometimes runs, the AC repairs will take longer than two days and they'll be down all week or longer.)

The AC repairs were successful. We then performed our weekly outage tasks and are coming back on line.

Thank you Jeff: thank you one and all.
That is some really special work!
Just looking forward to reporting a few tasks and maybe collecting some new ones ;-)

I work in a data center as a critical site engineer.
Without the AC working 100% all the servers would crash within an hour or sooner.
The added cost of electricity and AC maintenance to keep the place cool is figured in for most cases. Unexpected AC break-downs happen unfortunately.

It's not"down" just after an outage of this length (project was down for a day before this) there are thousands of machines all trying to report completed work and request new work, could take a few days before things settle down.

Is there a reason that work units download so very slow from Seti?
Downloads run 10 to 15 times faster on Rosetta.
This has been going on for months.
Rosetta downloads at 500 to 1200 KBps and Seti downloads at
2.49 to 9.78 KBps
Am I doing something wrong?

No, definitively not!
After the outage there is simply a gigantic traffic jam! The easiest way you can see it is http://fragment1.berkeley.edu/newcricket/grapher.cgi?target=%2Frouter-interfaces%2Finr-250%2Fgigabitethernet2_3;view=Octets;ranges=d%3Aw%3Am%3Ay
The green part of the graphics is outgoing from SETI, this is maxed out (no more traffic possible)!
Patience, please!

I understand the traffic jam after a few days of being offline.

It's a shame that a lot of bandwidth is probably wasted though, because currently I only seem to get partial downloads. Work units download anywhere between 0.94% and 96.73%. Tons are stuck in download, and only a few made it to 100% today.

I also noticed that a lot of workunits (that didn't download btw) are for my GPU with an estimated run time of 2,5 minutes. So if they would have downloaded, it would create even more congestion in a matter of minutes.

Of course I have no idea what is and isn't possible with the scheduler, but wouldn't it be better to schedule a few long running work units after you've been offline, so you don't get bothered by those machines for a few hours and can tend to the rest of the clients?

Wow tons of bandwidth being used! Hopefully it's an influx of new users trying to help out
