wow, thanks to the dedicated staff for getting everything up and running again on a early Sunday morning in California :D

Im guessing that Ap on v7 will pay like MB on v7. The same.
It wont pay anymore to run AP work only. Thats just my guess though.


that's what I'm guessing too. Out of all the tasks that have been validated none has "paid" more than 198 credits...

for now I'm running stock AP v7 but these tasks complete in 40-45 minutes and I also see my wingman on all 4 are a Mac so let's wait a bit.

*sigh, since AP's stopped validating my RAC has also dropped 10k now*

Nope.. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7374749&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=20

AP7 credit is low as hell. Thats not that good really.


same here, out of the 2 who validated yet I got 177 and 198 (no overflows, other host was a Mac)

with AP almost out and 700+ MB channels left I fear a 2 week drought before we get more...

Maybe they dumped all the old data to roll out AP v7 ? And will this also be subject to the dreadful monstrosity we lovingly call "credit new" ???

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...
11) Message boards : Number crunching : I'm falling, I bought a parachute. From 100% AP, to 100% MB. (Message 1495520)
Posted 26 Mar 2014 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 !

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.


Next 20
