Not so good here right now.
I have a few powerful rigs left sucking big wind for the lack of tasks sent.

Sorry guys ;)

The kitties gracefully sidestep so's Richard can get some work.

You are quite welcome, Richard.

Maybe my turn next.

And see/?
My big hitter just got a 51 WU hit.

Should be good to go for about 20 minutes or so...LOL.

I would occasionally get a burst of work units like that, but I spin through them rather quickly. Then there might not be anything for hours. There hasn't been any AP splitting for days.

The funny thing is that before they moved to the colo facility, I actually got more work units even with the retries, frustration and all.

Well, that's the breaks, as they say.

I am OK with the servers being all that they can be for now.

It's a nice change of pace for them at least being able to send what they can send.

The Cricket is doing a rather steady 200Mb/sec.....so work is flowing.

Much better than with the old 100Mb cap.

I've been able to get enough lucky hits to stay busy, but have to look often to see what's up.

There hasn't been any AP splitting for days.
Server Status page looks like it's time to mount some new files, so AP splitting should resume soon. That should help with the work shortage.

I only have 9 rigs against your many.
I have Killawatts on a few of them, and they are showing little activity.

The Einstein project should be happy in my case at least. I had to go add it as a secondary project again because I just can not keep enough work even though all my machines are CPU only. Not what I would like to be doing, but it is better than letting the NULL task get all those CPU cycles.

Actually all kidding aside on this, if you can't even get CPU work units (and I am having the same problem here) where are all the work units going. The outbound pipe is running at twice the capacity of before yet many of us are starved for work. Anyone care to speculate or am I missing something obvious here?

And there was "only" 67,025 users in the last 24 hours, connecting to SETI, to get or upload MB tasks, and "only" 8,140 users for AP tasks. Something strange is going on I'd say, when you can't even get enough tasks for the CPU.

there are other servers, non seti, connected to that switch so the outbound traffic is meaningless now...

The splitters and scheduler appear to be very "relaxed" just now. They deliver nothing for a few cycles, then dump a fairly large pile.

When Who or What makes the decision to assign a task to

1. CPU
2. ATI
3. Nvidia

Roundrobin or based on request or random or persnickity algorythm?

Depends what people mean by inbound & outbound. Is it from our perspective, or the routers?

Same as the last router- outbound on the Cricket graphs is inbound to the project (Scheduler requests, return of completed WUs). Inbound on the Cricket graphs is outbound from the project (our downloads).

Assuming the requesting cruncher has the capability, and the required apps installed:
All task types can be processed by any CPU.
Nvidia are very bad at processing VLARs so they aren't assigned (or shouldn't be assigned) to Nvidia processors.
AMD/ATI in principal have no limits (provided they are above a certain level?).
However at one time there was (and maybe still is) a blanket embargo on VLARs being sent to any GPU.

Assuming the task is able to be processed by any of the available processors on the the requesting cruncher it is then assigned to the most powerful processor on that cruncher. This assignment is done after a cruncher has made a request for new work, and on a task by task basis.

Uploads and reporting are working fine, I just can't get any downloads, cpu or gpu...
