I got this message

25/09/2010 7.48.40|SETI@home|[error] Error reported by file upload server: Server is out of disk space



I think this is a real problem :(

I permit to say this because is not the first time i hear it. I now the problems of the project (bandwith, data from arecibo, databases etc) but when hear after years of crunching

I'm sure you can find some other hobby/project that will give you just as worthless a validation

my blood temperature rise. I believe in this project and crunch for this reason.

With new WU assignments I have gone from over 3000 WU credits a month to less than 2500 & falling.
As a result I'm about to pull the plug on my efforts for SETI. I guess I'll leave it to the megawu folks to do the work.

If credits is all that important to you then I wish farewell and good luck in your future endeavors. I'm sure you can find some other hobby/project that will give you just as worthless a validation. You could have just left without saying a word.

For the majority of Seti denizens credits may be fun, but are very much secondary to the goals of the project.


Is true the goal of the project isn't pure credit collection but when i start the project was encouraged to crunch the major number of WU (rank and RAC statistics, teams, competitions etc). Today the project have enough crunchers and prestige to say "we don't need your WU is better if you go away". If this is the new spirit of the project I was very sad.

I get 200 of very fast (15 min) MB wu this wu have the same size of a normal and was returned fast too increasing the network traffic. why the splitter produce it?

Did they have A major meltdown in servers?


Several issues have compounded the problem, but primarily it seems the major issue is the high traffic generated by clients requesting work more often due to shorter work sent out. Also, some new AP work was created after having a period of no AP, which are a bit larger than the normal workunits, and there's a lot of fast/hungry crunchers that are asking for that work as well.

To add to that, it seems that every time the requests die down, the staff have their weekly server outage to perform their routine tasks, which means holding off the masses until they are back up. Then everyone comes rushing back in for more work and the cycle starts all over again.


Only a question why from 13:30 of Friday to the 8:30 of the Saturday the system work fine with a network traffic normal?
Just for 20 Hours for me is very strange?

Today I received 1000 MB wu (4 PC) but I receive only six 5.05 AP wu. I Set to get only AP wu but get nothing in all the day.
The server status say more than 60000 AP wu was sended out in the field in the last 48 Hours

The problem isn't AP is the big number of WU out to the field. The number of WU processed with the new systems like CUDA and faster multi core CPU create a very big amount of data to process. The bandwith is non enought for this kind of traffic. The number of crunchers (active users) is very high

Is enough for me too with no AP WU's to crunch I think is time to shutdown my farm. The average RAC with MB WU's is to low (1:2,6 in my farm) my actual RAC is 21000 this mean my RAC will drop to 7-8000 credits.

I'm unhappy after more than 6 years of crunching, but the electric energy used for this maybe can find a better way to be used.
