Any chance they were using proxies that no longer work/are needed?

The place to discuss your problems, rather than the server relocation, is in "Number Crunching".

Sure it is Rob, but mucking your way thru that Fora is a nightmare.
Been there and tried.

Good idea. They co-existed before just fine with my 4-core and set to 50/50 utilization and it occasionally ran 3 E@H to 1 Seti as the Seti downloads were so slow.

I have set E@H to No New Tasks but it will take a day or two to run my E@H WUs completely out and I'll see what happens then.

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.

Cheers.


AHA!!! Setting NNT made no immediate difference BUT selecting SUSPEND on the E@H project solved the problem. It took a few minutes but I now have 24 S@H WU's. I have now RESUMED E@H and whenever the project sharing algorythm kicks in it should run 2 S@H and 2 E@H.

MANY THANKS...

May not, it will look at project deadlines and might finish those einsteins first.

So lets turn this thread/forum into an equally useless cesspit
because no one can use/enforce even the most simple of forum rules.
That being post where it's appropriate.

Well can I say GREAT JOB group. While I ran out of work during the outage, after everything came back up I've noticed a HUGE difference in both the upload and download speeds. All week when I check the transfer tab everything is empty and each machine is full of work to do. Downloads complete in 2 - 3 seconds instead of minutes or hours.

I couldn't be happier with the results of moving to the COLO and just glad that I wasn't the person in charge 'cause I'm sure the planning and execution was not fun or without stress.

Again great job for getting this done in what looks from the outside to be flawless transition.

Thanks for the info - I'll look into it and hopefully it will resolve my issues.

And my bad - I'll repost elsewhere if needed. I just seen that people were asking for help in this thread and I went with it...

Yes, it is. Especially with the thread titles there. Who would expect a thread title Panic mode on to be a general Q&A thread? I don't even think there are threads with the BOINC / SETI wiki's sticked there or even in Q&A. As the same issues come up over and over big pointers to those help references should be there. Also perhaps the fora name of Number Crunching should be changed to Number Crunching & Assistance. Perhaps in Q&A a "Help! I can't get it to start working" fora and a "Help! It used to work and it quit" fora. Otherwise people will post questions here because the admins post here and they want direct help from the admins as they are at the end of their rope.

Gary brings up a very good point. Number Crunching must be very intimidating to a new cruncher.

For the most part we dont like to mod an Admins thread. Yes there are cases of hate and flame wars and video links to obscene material that we take care of, But off topic and questions for help were left alone.

Fred is asking the Admins for clarification.

I would go for "tech shtuph" or something equally as brief.

I gathered as much. "Tech talk" was my suggestion for a renamed "Number crunching" if the powers that be find it necessary to rename it.

The "Politics" forum would also benefit from being renamed to "Politics and Religion" as this is where the threads on the latter either start or get moved to. Most forums have them clumped like this as they are the inflammatory subjects that need constant watch from the moderators.

I applaud the mods for giving more leeway there than in the more frequented forums.
Unless it comes down to knock down drag outs, they are pretty reasonable in allowing the discourse to take it's path there.

Dunno what actually was improved, but DL of WU is now way, way faster.
No more broken DL and retries for a standard 6.03 WU or an AP.

Thanks, the relocation solved this problem as well.
