Great to hear that everything is in a new location. I know the old location has been causing problems for years.

Congrats.

Good luck with the move! Will you or others have physical access over weekends to kick kit if it becomes necessary like you have now? Oh and BTW, don't forget to take loads of pictures for posterity :-
DITTOO lets find ET!!!!!!!!!!(and get off this rock)

As was posted elsewhere, part of the deal with the new location is that there are techs on duty 24/7 to do simple restarts and such. The Seti guys will very seldom need to put their hands on their own euqipment.

Also, there will be no pictures because the new location doesn't allow them.

I took some pictures, but not down at the colocation facility, as pictures down there aren't allowed.

Wonder if a special request to have IST take a picture and photoshop out anything they don't want shown could be made?

Most co-location sites are very fussy about not having photos taken, even by their own staff so I doubt that they would allow any such photo - mores the pity as they are all very similar once you get through the fancy entrance hall and security goons. Just banks of 42U racks (or bigger), howling air con on the cool side unbearably hot on the hot side, with the howling air con, bundles of cable running into ducts, howling air con...

I was part of a Y2K project in the 12 month run up to the Millennium, and one of my tasks was to survey and catalogue a large Computer Centre for any non-compliant kit that needed to be upgraded. I certainly don't remember any "howling air-con" and most cabling was under-floor as well. You can walk into any UK supermarket on a hot summers day, and it will be pleasantly cool without hardly a noise or any draught. Aircon/cooling can be done efficiently.

Did we mention howling air con? LOL.
I am 56 going on 57.......
And I am going a bit hard of hearing. I don't really want to know what a DB meter would register in the kitty crunching den. It might be a bit more than I wish to acknowledge. On the other hand, I have grown accustomed to the din, and it gets rather spooky in the few moments during a power outage and all goes silent.

Then, I am REALLY spooked.
Kitties make wonderful traveling companions on your journey through life.

Looks like you have 26 units in progress on 2 rigs. The other two haven't tried to contact the project since before the outage. Did you set them to NNT?

Yes, like the speed and really grown up. Good if it remains.

Wow, that's fast.
I'd estimate it's 100 times faster than I had been getting downloads.
I no longer have to worry about half of my downloads stalling through the night and needing a "kick" in the morning to finish downloading. I might even turn the astropulse ones back on, (those things took forever to download, so I turned them off as not worth messing with on a mobile system.)

I'm glad everything went well in the move. Sometimes I just don't understand where "the powers to be" come from. You have to shut down your systems for an upgrade to the power and then within a month your told to move to another place. Those "power's to be" don't realize what is involved in that.
I was in the AF working an IT section and they told us that we had to move to another building. I told them Really? we can't just pick up our PC's and move. The servers, both Unix and Windows, are tied to the base with fiber connected to this building, Are you going to move the fiber also? When I told them the cost they couldn't believe it. How about Management doing some research before they make decisions.
Hopefully your new facility had the same or better bandwith. In my case they would have had to move the fiber also.

God I'm glad I'm retired and don't have to put up with that S..t anymore.

Still not getting any WUs since the servers were moved! I have made no changes to my prefs since January. What could be the reason(s?) I can no longer get any WU's?
April 1st I moved to an ISP with much better bandwidth and Einstein@home is blasting away but I'd rather be sharing my CPUs with SETI.

Einstein is likely keeping SETI out so set Einstein to no new tasks and see if you gets you SETI work again.

I have the same issue - no WU updates since the move. I was running a package when the move occurred and was set up on a single system. During the move, I set up a second system as well (using my same account). Since the move, neither system is working - they are unable to obtain any new WU's.

Is everything OK?

All four of my rigs are happily grabbing work. As your computer(s) are hidden can't offer anything else.

You might want to flush the DNS caches, make sure that you don't have "no new tasks set" check your project priorities, check the work fetch debt, and all the other normal things. Also look at your SETI preferences to be sure you are allowing all applications, and (temporarily at least) try using stock applications. Finally is BOINC asking the project for work? If so what is it logging as a response?
