I finally figured it out this morning.
Ah, wonderful what a good night's sleep can do for debugging. And just in time for the weekend, too. Thanks.


I totally agree.
Thanks.
With each crime and every kindness we birth our future.

Message 1910965 - Posted: 5 Jan 2018, 22:50:44 UTC - in response to Message 1910847.  

It turns out there was a typo in a configuration file that was making the splitters restart repeatedly. I finally figured it out this morning. We should be approaching a normal splitting rate.

Well done.
I suspect that typo might have been there for a while- looking at the Haveland graphs the present splitting rate is the best it's been since as far as the graphs go back (12months). Roughly a sustained 50/s, where as before it would average around 35 at best with lots of sharp peaks & drops.

Ok, I guess that is one thing I will leave running in the background. No need to worry about it.

Thanks for the update Jeff, was wondering as I've just recently installed Boinc onto a new Linux (Ubuntu) setup! Keep up the good work.

Why is that - what's the problem?

Well, there was a Hurricane that hammered the whole Island and it has yet to recover 3 months later. To add to that the Observatory itself suffered damage, as well as much of the support infrastructure in the area, combined with significantly reduced funding to the observatory.

I'm not getting any WUs today, too. Is there any problem again? Thanks for your info Eric and thanks to the team for the hard work!

I was having issues with downloads for the last couple hours, but a reboot on my home router solved that issue, and I just got a bunch so it seems OK.

Same problem, same resolution: a restart of my router fixed it, too.

Restartet my router too, but still the same problem. It says it's downloading new WUs (a huge amount of WUs) but nothing happens. I'm now only crunching 3 WUs and all others are waiting for beeing downloaded.

We have been discussing this problem at length and in detail in https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=82332

Judging by your avatar, you should be able to implement the hosts file workround without difficulty.

I ran out of work earlier today, and it seems to be taking forever...stuck on "downloading work from server" in the BOINC manager. As such, no pretty screensaver/no active projects. How long should I give it? What to do? Note: I am just a long-term fan, not a power user or anything like one.

As per Richard's discussion and previous, this is a DNS issue. You can either:
1) change the hosts file,
2) open a cmd window and do a ipconfig/flushdns and see if that helps, or
3) tell boinc manager (in advanced view) in the transfers window to retry until they succeed.

Hopefully, the IT folks will address the issue this week.

Thanks so much. I may wait for the dev team to work on it for a bit; bad things tend to happen when I play with my DNS settings....

Choice 3 will probably see you through for a few days, as will 2.

Thanks Richard. I will do this and yes that's no problem for me ;)
But the point why I asked was if there's a problem again. I'm okay if it takes longer. And I'm thankful for what Eric and the SETI-Team are doing. Hope you didn't misunderstand the way I was asking for the problem. I appreciate their hard work.
Thanks again Richard for the info and the link!

...and I guess that means no more AstroPulse until the splitting of APs from the newer data is sorted.

Both of your computers say they have work so I'm assuming you got it fixed.
