I am a bit confused by both the front page and what my computers are experiencing.



So when my other computer couldn't get any WU, I wondered why the one computer could get some. Was it just lucky and asked for some at the brief moment when some were available?

You have to remember about WUs being up-chucked on another users machine or time limits reached on those out in the wild. Those will be resent and processed by someone else.

Was wondering why my fans slowed down on all my PC's! XD

Hope there's new work soon, my computers were actually turned OFF last night!!


It only happens just when you need your room heaters the most!

No, I have never used a manager to access my machines. But I will say that I have had issues with the latest software (6.12.34) where the boinc manager drops the connection to the client after a few days of running just out of the blue. And it is hard to get it talking again. I had updated a few of my machines with this version and it has happened on all of them. Now I have reverted back to using 6.10.58 because I never had this problem before.

The machine itself is located at work. I did have Boinc tasks loaded on it so I could view the progress of my machines. But all I used it for was to make sure that the machines were up and running, never to actually control Bonic on them. It has been since removed for about two months now. It was easier to keep track of the few machines I have through the web site from time to time to make sure there were no problems. And with Team viewer I can get access to the machines directly.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the help you gave me. If it ever happens again (and I hope this is the one and only time) I will try to remember to get the log messages.

Yea, I tried to delete a few already and after those few I called it quits. Probably take me a week to do.


After restarting the client this is my startup messages:

Current machines should be:

Ingot-14 (ID: 5567915) - this is the machine that duplicated
Ingot-15 (ID: 4399881)
Ingot-16 (ID: 6431446)
Ingot-18 (ID: 6432885)
Extension1363 (ID: 5892976)
RK-2 (ID: 5838953)
SLD2 (ID:4666981)

All these should have RAC. The real Ingot-14 has RAC as well and seems to be connecting fine.

Crap that many? I did not even look for a total. How I wish I had that many! No way I m going to delete that on my own. Guess I will PM someone on Monday unless they figure it out first.

I just had something odd happen last night where a single computer just spawned itself a hundred times or so on my list. It is a computer that I have never had any problems with before. Computer IDs are about a second apart, so does anyone know if the web server had a hiccup? Next question will I have to delete these myself one by one or can someone else do it from the admin side? Since these are phantoms and have nothing, you can tell which one is real and not Memorex.

Not sure if anyone else has tried but I flushed the dns on two of my work machines that had not connected in over a week. Now they have shown that they have communicated with S@H. Did it yesterday on one machine and saw results, and another today. Just throwing this out there if no one else tried it yet. You never know.

What I find odd here in Orlando is that my home connection through Earthlink (Isp) uses Bright House hardware is connecting just fine (lots of uploaded WUs). But my dedicated fiber connection at my office through Bright House directly is not connecting. And I believe that all Bright House traffic is directed toward the Tampa area. I did do some pings on the addresses at the house and it came back with mostly replies and a few time outs here and there, and time ranges from the 100’s to very high 900’s. Have not done any traces yet at the house but here is the IP addresses from my office. So a path out there is working just not sure on what that path is yet. My guess is that I don’t think it is a Seti, Berkeley campus, Hurricane Electric problem.

I have been looking at all the issues the servers have been having the last couple of months and think I have figured out what is causing all the problems. There is a work unit that has has picked up an alien signal. Since these aliens don't want to be found, they have been zapping the servers every time it is sent out. All we need do is find and delete this work unit and we will be able to get back to crunching without all these interuptions.


I want that WU.

Tasks available are probably going up as they timeout.


Or in the case of others messing with their Boinc setup and causing the WU’s to get hosed on the client side and have to be put back in the pot to be resent. I have done it myself before and killed a bunch of WU’s with a click of the mouse.

At least this will give them a head start on things when they do open the gates again.

Which brings us to today. Around 12:30 our server closet air conditioning unit died. Within 30 minutes all the servers warmed up over 5 degrees Celsius and I started getting alerts. This may be a significant problem (i.e. we may need more than just a coolant refill). So depending on how fast we can get the maintenance people up here I might have to shut down parts or all of the project to prevent server burnout. Meanwhile, I have the server closet doors open to help cool things down, much to the annoyance of all the projects on this floor (the fan noise is about 20-30 decibels louder with the doors open). The poor people across the hall from the closet are being defeaned - my desk is a few doors down.

What I find humorous about this is the fact of how much it mirrors my own work life.
