1) Message boards : Number crunching : Panic Mode On (107) Server Problems? (Message 1885421)

Web site & forums barley working; missing more often than not. And when they are up, forum response is super slow- at best.
Add to that Scheduler responses are getting more erratic.

22/08/2017 14:44:52 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server
22/08/2017 14:47:38 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: HTTP service unavailable


Not seeing any problems on my end, but I am a lot closer to the server than you.

Can anyone please assist me with this one:

cc_config.xml with this will fix it.

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <file_xfer>1</file_xfer>
        <sched_ops>1</sched_ops>
        <task>1</task>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
    </options>
</cc_config>


If you already have a cc_config, just find that option and change the 0 to a 1

5) Message boards : Number crunching : PM System NOT Working??? (Message 1869705)

Just sent you one.

Refresh this screen, top right corner- does it show "You have 1 unread message" (or similar)?
Click on the inbox & see if there's anything there from me in the last few minutes.


There have been noises about the email notification of PMs not working, but back at the beginning of this month (last time I got a PM) it came up in my BOINC Manager notices tab, and in the top right corner of most of these forum pages that I had an unread/received a new message.


I got a reply from Jason earlier this month as well.

The problem with the images is what is causing the work to error out as well.
Go here and go to the bottom, place a checkmark into "Skip data verification for image files"
Do the same thing at BETA.

Unofficial Windows 7/8.1 update workaround posted to GitHub

GitHub user Zeffy has created a patch that removes a limitation that Microsoft imposed on users of 7th generation processors, a limit that prevents users from receiving Windows updates if they still use Windows 7 and 8.1.

This limitation was delivered through Windows Update KB4012218 (March 2017 Patch Tuesday) and has made many owners of Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Bristol Ridge CPUs very angry last week, as they weren't able to install any Windows updates.


There is a link to the GitHub scripts in the article. Use at own risk. :^)

Caveat:

"The only downside of these solutions is you have to apply a new patch whenever wuaueng.dll gets updated," says Zeffy in his GitHub repo README. Fortunately, the entire task doesn't take long to complete.

Sounds like removing KB4012218 would be a better option.


Turning off updates is the option I picked.

How many hours does it take for a GTX 1080 to go trough the 100WU limit?


Roughly 6-7 hours on my machines that run 1080s (and 980s) at 3 WUs/Gpu

Around 7 hours (less than 5, over 9 depending on the work mix) for my GTX 1070s running 1WU at a time.

9-10hrs with my 1060's 1w/u at a time.

Cheers.

About 8 hours on my 1070/960 machine doing 2 at a time.

Hello dear setizens.

For some reason i had to move my website to a different location.

http://mikesworld.eu/

I have already updated my account info here at seti.
The old web page will be shut down by the end of this month.

kind regards
Mike


Updated the links on both Lunatic's and my site.

Posting and accessing the web pages has gotten remarkably slower in the last 48 hours. Everything seems to be getting bogged down somehow.

The end is near.......................
The only end that is near is the end of this doggone long thread.

Meow.


Okay, I will create a new one, I have been busy with College lately.

The Forum colors can be adjusted easily in FireFox using the method from the other thread. It does seem better if you Invert the Brightness instead of Colors, that way Green is still Green, Orange still Orange, etc. The only strangeness is the Posting box & Stderr output box is black with white letters, but, the rest looks normal and nice.

1) Install Color That Site
2) Open the sidebar and select New Edit
3) Select Foreground colors and Check the Invert Brightness box
4) Select Settings and hit the Site choice
5) Do the same with the Background Colors.

Well, I just went to change another machine and found the text colors have been changed from white to Yellow. That doesn't Invert very nicely. When I changed the Main machine the text colors were white and they Inverted to Black. Glad I changed my Main machine earlier, now it will stay with Light Grey Background and Black Text no matter what SETI does.


I went with a slightly green backdrop with almost white text. Matches my mood perfectly.

Post:
Or are there any older threads anyone wants to bump?

That would make more sense to me than cluttering the forum with a bunch of new posts. Panic Mode, Windows 10, GUPPI Rescheduler, etc. are probably all candidates for bumping, but only if there's something relevant to add to them. :^)

Actually, I think we're overdue for a new Panic Mode thread, anyway.


yes we were, I have been busy with school and not crunching.


Next 20
