My log is full of "Couldn't connect to server" messages, i've got a few dozen to be reported & climbing.


reporting and validating goes fine here, WU distribution is down though...

seems the server changes implied 2 weeks ago result in feeding everyone's CPU needs first and even though you're out of GPU tasks it will feed them later. 2 hours after reaching 100 CPU AP tasks I'm rising steadily on GPU AP's so no need to worry here... The WU's will come in sooner or later.

Well it's morning now and overnight 66 S@H enhanced tasks errored out. Now BOINC tells me (logical response to the errors) the rig has hit a daily quota of 2... Not so happy about that one

edit : never mind, I get tasks manually after unchecking V6 MB's

What's really weird (at least on my end) is the MB's sent out are mostly ones who are validated already but were granted 0 credit.

I noticed now too, some fail to DL but the ones who do run smoothly.

Guess staff is cleaning house, love to see a MB or 20 on my machine again :D

Looks like the Transitioners on Vader have crashed.
Other functions on Vader show green.
Reboot it in the morning, I guess.


they had the outage yesterday because the guys were out today so could be a while...

Posted 176 days ago by Profile S@NL Etienne Dokkum
with current observations due to lack of AP's I'm expecting the same drop off I'm getting :

with AP only my GPU crunches ~1200 / hour while Credit New only grants me ~420 / hour for MB (running 2 instances on a "moderate" GTX660)

That's about 35% so I should say Sten will eventually level off on about ~ 12500 RAC.

(etit) after a low of course with all the MB's still waiting to be validated, so 8500/9000 wouldn't be a terrible guess...

In my case a MB only pais 28% compared to an AP so I guess Sten will open his 'chute at 9800 feet !

Wait, no one is whining about the lack of APs.


guess everyone's cache is still full... Or : the idea of "they will fix it eventually" finally sunk in.

ready to send buffer nearly back to 0, with all the shorties being served to us the servers can't meet demand. I can't recall seeing a number over 200k since Saturday...

FYI, I sent E-Mail to David, Eric, Matt & Jeff - because SSP frozen & UL not possible.

Why it's a Saturday!!

Monday will be quite soon enough.

Why do people expect to have work 24/7 and the staff "on call the same"

If there is work, fine if not fine.

Also I suspect the Co-lo would not do anything unless asked by the owners of the servers, so the very idea that we should be able to contact the Co-lo is totally laughable!!

Relax people, if it's not about RAC two, three, four days downtime means nothing.


agreed, yes : I too like it to have a high RAC but sometimes people tend to forget what Seti is really about... Science and hoping to someday E.T.

There is life beyond this VOLUNTEER project isn't there?!

well, I hope they fix it with a simple reboot... otherwise with only MB's lots of folk will be on their back up projects by tonight.

Yep all uploads are stuck again. If I run out it backup time.


...and with all the shorties being fed to us that's another problem on top !

Thanks for the info Matt. Not the news we were hoping for, but still. Anyway : I wish you and the boys all the best getting things sorted !

Did we just lose uploads again?


Dead, very dead....


it's still afternoon at Berkeley so probably there will be someone around to kick the servers ... Just let it run and come morning here we'll see what happened.

No stats dump for 3 days running now... But as AP's are flowing really nothing serious to complain about.
18) Message boards : Number crunching : No of Cores? (Message 1463848)
Posted 249 days ago by Profile S@NL Etienne Dokkum
The latter is an interesting question which has been probably answered before but I'll ask it anyway :

I'm thinking of building a machine with 2 GPU's on a MB with only 2 cores. So to free 2 cores I'm left with no CPU crunching. Is it possible to adjust some settings in Boinc or the app info to make it possible only to ask GPU work. This is kind of an old rig, but it has 2 PCIE 16x ports on the MB and 8GB ram so it would be possible in my opinion...

Comments or suggestions please ?

I wonder whats happend of late. After the colo move we were running pretty smooth. But the last few weeks has seen one thing after another. Is it hardware or software problems.

I do miss Matts weekly tech posts.

Still not able to upload anything so no problems with invalid WU's at least... Late at night here in Europe so maybe things will be resolved in the morning.

goodnight!
