Our upload server is malfunctioning. The projects are down until we can fix this.

Thanks Jeff for the update.
Take your time, there's no hurry. It's all about light-years after all :-)

Ah good. Just installed this on my other computer and I have no work available to process. I assume this is the problem. Will wait.

Thanks for the status posting, it helps us to know why we have an outage like this one.

I have been on a data diet for the two weeks, I over did net browsing after thanksgiving holiday. So i shut down seti@home till this last Monday. Now I have twelve reports to upload. today. Any idea how much each upload is or that a variable? I would like to guesstimate what the data flow is, so I can see what I can figure out my data total.

On average, SETI@home workunits are about 8-36KB upload in size, while AstroPulse is only slightly larger than that. And yes, they are kilobytes, not megabytes or gigabytes. They don't consume much bandwidth at all.

PS - I never shut down SETI for browsing the net. Besides the small download and upload sizes, network bandwidth is only consumed during file transfers and not while crunching.

It's about 20-30k per upload. Depends on how many features are detected in the data analysis.

Uploads will be between 20-30 KB and Downloads of new workunits will be 700-720KB.
Downloaded Astropule Workunits might still be 8MB

Uploads sizes can be seen in the transfer tab in Advanced view while they're waiting for a network connection.

Had the thought that the cold here on the frozen tundra had migrated westward enough to cool down the servers and get them going again. :-{)}

We are back. When I've had a chance to catch my breath I'll post a summary of what went wrong. Nothing lost except many hours of my time.

getting new tasks works.

Sometimes.
Having to hit "Retry pending transfers" 20-50 times to get all allocated WUs to eventually download.

Oh, and is any GBT work being split? Only getting Arecibo at the moment.

Those WU's we get now, was already split and in the "Results ready to send" queue, when things went pear shaped.
There's not any Arecibo files in the MB splitters now. Not one new MB WU is being split/splat/splut.

I mostly got GBT work though, after everything came back.

Ah.
I had picked up only 1GBT WU out of around 150 downloads, then on the last request I managed to pick up 90% GBT in the next batch of 40 or so WUs

Oh...
I can hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth already...

Yup, time to put away those rescheduler tools for those who use them :-)

Edit: Something is still not really OK though. The data for:

"Results received in last hour" and "Result turnaround time (last hour average)" is still saying "0", and is not updating (6 hours behind)

I'll check the GBT splitters. They seem like they should be working.
