The cricket graph is reading correctly, it has been changed to reflect how much UC Berkeley cares about the S@H project. ;^)

Remember, the flow of Tasks from the Scheduler is not a continuous feed. The Feeder only holds about 200 Tasks at a time. It refills every 5 seconds or so, but with so many hosts asking for work at any given time, once that 200 is allocated, everybody else gets the "No Tasks Available" message until the Feeder refills. It's all a matter of timing.


So the system saturates at 200*12*60 or 144,000 WU/hour? Results returned is currently ~48K/hour leaving excess capacity of nearly 100K/hour currently. If the feeder empties before all requests are filled perhaps it should refresh more rapidly than about every 5 seconds... (it does not escape me that this is approximately equal to the maximum result creation rate)
Also, there is 35-65MB/sec of data leaving the server and not (visibly) going to the lab - that's a lot of work units going somewhere considering all of my boxes are getting the "no work available" message, as is nearly everyone else - maybe Charles Long bought all the servers in new mexico...

The lab (8_34) doesn't show a corresponding huge inflow of data. (unless I have the wrong cricket for it...)

The cricket graphs show 40-60 MB/s going out to somewhere. Not reaching the users, apparently.

How do I fix this? I have restarted, repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled Boinc and reset the project. Same message. Help.

SSP and user computer pages are not updating, not good...

SSP has been updating...just got the 16:00 update.
Cricket shows new datasets being sent to the servers, but no splitting going on yet.

EDIT...spike in the Cricket graph, and just got 1 WU....
Splitting may be back underway. Too soon to tell.



Yes, I just got an update to 16:0X UTC, unfortunately, it is currently 00:10 UTC...

[edit]oops, wrong clock!

No worries, they will fix it during the "outage".

SSP is still frozen and Munin graphs are flatlined, not a panic, just a problem.

Don't worry, it will be fixed during next week's maintenance.

I still have v6 WUs waiting for validation... noticed one yesterday.

I can confirm, where S@H is concerned, the past tense of split is indeed splat.
By extension, the process is splatter (or splattering) - the devices would then be splatters (or splatterers). /facetious font

DG, I would estimate that I am seeing credits at about 65-75% of pre-V7 numbers, your observations seem in line with that.

Does it occur to anyone that maybe subspace communication and warp drives don't emit any spurious radio frequency energy, at least on the frequencies that S@H is searching? Maybe the Vogon constructor fleet is preparing to level our solar system to install a hyperspace bypass RIGHT NOW and we don't know a thing about it. (sigh)

Eric did post "Turns out we had run up against another informix limit. I'm resolving that, but it's looking like we are only 1/8th of the way done after 24 hours. Until it's done we won't be able to generate Astropulse work." at 9 Nov 2014, 0:15:29 UTC, so we have to wait until that problem is solved.


It would be nice, if given the size of the project, they would use more than a semi-toy database. Like one originally designed for commercial use. I'm sure they could get a donation from someone, somewhere. I just wish I had one to give them.


The software is available... as we know, the FBI tracks and records every byte transmitted on the internet and the CIA records and stores all phone calls, cellular and landline and runs real-time analysis to determine threat level.
