My best guess here is that the problems we are encountering atm are more than just a remote reboot, so for now the back up projects should keep us happy until monday... Just keep crunching !

It took abusive retry button behavior, but now the servers were friendly and my cache is back up to 200 tasks again. No point of holding out for AP's just yet I think...

The kitties seem to have received some rather long running GPU tasks here as well...dunno if they are flying just under the radar, so to speak, to get by the threshold of don't send VLARs to nvidia GPUs, or if that server limitation has been broken.
ATI cards, if I recall, don't fare as badly with them as nvidia cards do.


My NVidia doesn't like 'em : just test ran 2 of them and they completed in 1 hour 22 minutes compared to the usual 20 min. (2 instances on 1 GTX750ti)

turn around time is less because there are less AP's to grab ? My avg time is somewhat like 0.82 days for GPU AP's

And people are gobbling up the work even faster than I thought. Only 224 AP channels left to split now.


Something is wrong. The channels disapeares without creating new work units


This morning there were 742 channels and 8 hours later there are only 160 left ??!!!

well, that's it... back to 100% MB. If the servers are so kind to throw me a couple of GPU tasks in the process

Thanks, 200 MB tasks in progress as we speak here :D

that's a great Sinterklaas(Dutch traditional holiday where gifts are given to children by a Santa Claus kind of folk hero) present !

For the first time in over 15 years I am not crunching Seti, this is causing a real panic.


relax, most of us have been out of work for at least 2 weeks now... Surely you must remember Nov-Dec 2012 when Seti was down for weeks too. Patience is all we can depend on ;-)

Thank you for the update. I'm running MilkyWay@home and Einstein@home until you return.


first off, happy thanksgiving and thanks for the update !

My Einstein RAC has surpassed my ever declining Seti credit so I really hope this will be the last "bugs" that will have to be worked out...

Will this ever gonna work again?
Don't let the volunteers crunch too much on their backup projects, f. e. Einstein, etc.
When they see the credit given there, they might give up on this... :รพ


True, when people get used to the extremely much higher credits of their backup project, they will abandon SETI in droves.

That'll of course benefit those of us who stays. More work units for us, and much easier to get them, once the project starts splitting work again :-)


I'm crunching Einstein too (just to keep the old rig from going "silent") atm and I must admit 3333 credits for a 3.5 hour GPU WU is massive compared to Seti. But the science and my field of interest remains here and as soon as the project is back up I'll be 110% committed to Seti

In last 24 hours 32 units received. At this rate, a little bit over week left.


I think you can add another 25 days to that with all the time outs coming up fairly soon calculating by the last time I got a V6 resend...

17-11-2014 21:55:30 | SETI@home | Reporting 192 completed tasks
17-11-2014 21:55:30 | SETI@home | Requesting new tasks for CPU
17-11-2014 21:56:48 | SETI@home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
17-11-2014 21:56:48 | SETI@home | Project has no tasks available

Reporting working just fine, took a bit longer than usual but that was to be expected.

No worries, the GPU is crunching Einstein atm so we'll just wait till the boys at the lab patch everything together again ;-)

Very, very close now.....
Only 54 channels left to do.

Edit: Only 40 channels left to do now.
Edit 2: Only 35 channels left to do now.

Only 27 channels left to do now. We're going down...


21 channels, Seti is almost splattered to pieces on the rock bottom

with all the remaining unsplit tapes being 0.25GB I guess we will run out of work in a couple of hours... Oh, the HORROR !

Looks like all the remaining MB channels are stuck ones as ready to send buffer now fell almost to 0.


Next 20
