It looks like it will take someone on the staff resetting something. The Cricket graphs have gone south.

Likely won't happen. In the morning, everything goes offline for two days. I guess it's a way of "ramping down" before the outage.


Also, I don't know if you knew about this, but some time back (year+), Boincstats changed some things around and you have someone else's stats in your signature. You should head back over to boincstats and get the updated code for that.

Thanks, I have images turned off and had not noticed.

Woops there...

Looks like the Cricket graphs just tanked.
Hope it's just a small blip.

Looks like it might be back up. I was just successful in reporting completed tasks and getting new work.

I'm getting responses to about 1 in 5 requests. And mostly it's to re-issue lost tasks from previous failed requests.

The same here, except it is about 1 in 3 request. That's OK, I am still getting work to do.

Slow downloads suck!!

Yes, but slow is a lot better than none.

my SWAG would point to

Replica seconds behind master 44,232

Edit: SWAG is Sophisticated Wild A** Guess.


It appears that the replica is not running properly, since it keeps getting farther behind.

I work for a hotel company, and I go to many of the hotels and do various maintenance on their computers. I'm not surprised, but i've seen much worst. for instance, i saw a mouse who made a home in a workstation once. probably didn't do a lot for the airflow in that box!


Just wait until they piss on the boards. It can really screw them up big time, though it may take a while for it to happen.

Ooops, you're right. Looks like some customisations slipped out of the scheduler code while the servers were being swapped around. Let's hope we can attract the staff's attendtion to this thread when the time comes.


I think everything is OK. The only vlar that I received was tagged correctly.

Just a quick note. Obviously, jocelyn is up. Mork is recovering.

At this point, we are discussing what we will do between now and when the new servers are on line.


Take the whole system down until you have installed and thoroughly tested the new servers. If that takes a month or two really doesn't matter. It must be extremely time consuming and not beneficial to the science, just trying to keep the system up, when it is this unstable and unreliable.

It's much better if you spend that time doing some science work, instead of baby sitting unstable machines.


I would prefer them to keep the splitters off line and let things gradually clean up a little.

Thanks for the update. Three weeks sounds pretty good.

The upload servers are back up. The scheduling server is still off line.

They are back off line now.

Yea and WHY turn off validation just because the Scheduler is messed up

Seams to me that the system could be lowering the waiting for validation queue
and just disable the scheduler, and upload/download servers



The waiting for validation queue is at 0, how much lower can it go.


Results returned and awaiting validation 7,315,135


That includes all of the work units that have been returned and are not ready for validation.

Never mind, I saw in another post that you have a couple rigs started back up.


You might want to see if you can get some work now. I have gotten a bunch, but most of them have been shorties.

You may want to hold off a bit downloading this driver. IT IS STILL IN BETA!!


Agreed, my bad, I forgot to state that. I have not tried it yet, but I know that there are some here that like to live on the edge.

Nvidia has release a new 197.13 that is supposed to fix the fan problem. See http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_winvista_32bit_197.13.html for the 32 bit version.

On the BOINC manager program, under project, the status reads "won't get new tasks." I hit update several time but no luck. The "allow new tasks" button is on. Any idea what the deal is or how to fix it. Thanks.


Click on the allow new task, then try an update.

Off topic

Thanks very much. Her name is Spirit, and she's 6 years young, loves everyone she meets, and is still way more puppy than adult. Wouldn't have it any other way.


I have one called Sasha that looks very much like her. Some pictures are at http://www.rusling.org/dogs/index.html
