If I get one more AP, I'll have a full 10-day cache. I guess that's about the only good thing to being CPU-only is it makes a large cache less than the limits.

With MB my Core2 Duo can last for about 4 days with long running WUs, probably 5 if they were all VLARs.
On my i7 even with all VLARs the present limits wouldn't give me a days work.

Bad kitty juju here.......
Some time last night there was a power glitch, and EVERYTHING reset.
Most of the rigs restarted OK, but a couple of them hung, including the Frozen One, who's compressor does not appreciate being restarted like that.
Or the freaking modem and router, who apparently cannot come back up without a few restarts by the kitty paws.
Not a great good welcome morning here.

I'm concern that they haven't powered down for the scheduled electrical work. I'm concerned because I could see that the staff was told the work was delayed but sometime today someone else will simply cut the power, leading to a mess that'll take days to restore.

Keith...

I am sure they have it covered.
The work was rescheduled.
I am sure we shall see a notice when they are gonna do it.
They're not simply gonna cut out the line to the SSL without notice.

The fact that Matt has sent out a message saying that the outage has been cancelled indicates that the outage for the repairs to the SSL-wide power systems has been cancelled for this weekend, and that the whole of the SSL will be breathing a communal sigh of relief. One of two things has happened - the uni has not been able to undertake the repairs this weekend for whatever reason, or the uni has found a way to conduct the repairs without shutting down the whole of the SSL. I suspect the former is the more probable, so there will be a planned outage for the work to be done, and there will be notice of it being done so the whole lab can prepared for it.

(We are looking forward to version four of a similar outage where I work.)

Looks like there can be some outage on Monday, though.

If they have to do any transformer work, total outage is likely.

Only half an hour allotted, and before normal working hours at Berkeley - should be minimal impact on us, probably just the forums and front page.

Yeah, OK.

This is an ITS outage, not a power outage, and it only affects (one of) the out of building switches, so the servers will be able to carry on, but there may be no out of building connectivity depending on which switch they are working on and how that switch is being reconfigured.

I take it you haven't worked with contractors, utilities or a university maintenance department before. It makes those 6 hour windows for the cable guy seem downright convenient. ;)

Edit: Okay, they did canceled it. Now back to your previously scheduled grumblings already in progress.

Just now downloads are back to their normal - about as fast as a snail with arthritis moving across coarse glass paper...

Unlike when there were 4,000,000 awaiting download when I couldn't get any, but downloads were fast.

I just wonder if they were trying to see what happens if you overfill the tanks, and at what point the downloads "work well". Keep going down, its a long way below the current level.

Scheduler response times are still measured in seconds though, here at home at least. I wish they'd start to increase the limits a bit though, my faster machines can't last too long a break at 100 GPU WUs/machine.

I notice this morning that my pc 6738288 has marked around 100 tasks as abandoned. What caused this and is there anything I need to do? It hasn't abandoned anymore in the past 6-7 hours and appears to be working. Boinc tasks is reporting about 200 tasks on the pc but the web site reports about 120.

thanks...Frank

Random task abandonment has been reported before. Nothing you can or need to do on your end. Just keep crunching, and if the servers pick up the problem, they might resend the missing tasks. If not, no worries, they'll get crunched by somebody sooner or later.
