Well, not much happening with MB or AP production it seems. Both types are almost impossible to get now.

Merry Yule folks, and don't forget to smile :-)

Well they be splitting APs but I've not got any yet.

I did get three AP's at the beginning, but they are almost done now. If I don't get any new AP's soon, I have to turn on MB's again.

But that's OK, after all it is the Yule season, when we all should be happy campers.

Those 4 splitters that are doing unspeakable things to each other on the same AP file (03se14ad, really hampers the production of AP work.

I wish they would get themselves a hotel room instead :-)

Edit: Oops, Marvin is disabled again....
AP splitters RED.
We're in code RED again.

Computers have no shame!!!

I think Eric just kicked them out of the same file, booked a hotel room for them, and turned Marvin back on again.

Three AP splitters running....
Expect work any year now.

Up to 7 now ...

That was a bold move. Let's hope marvin can cope with it...

You should be more positive.
Here's a little something to help you out, Don't Worry Be Happy.

I am extremely positive thank you very much. When I am negative, you will notice the difference :-)
Being positive: I just got my first AP, after marvin's crash:

That's a good question. Apart from some email warnings we don't have any stored records of what happened at the time of the crash. It's likely that all the disk volumes disappeared simultaneously, but that doesn't really explain why we got any warning.

Ah well, you can always blame Kim Jong Un, and his rogue gang of hackers :-)

Marvin is back up. For some reason the 3-ware BIOS was not being detected on reboot. After several attempts to make it visible we flashed a new BIOS. On the next reboot it came right back up.

The database is in transaction cleanup mode (which can take a while). Once that's done I'll survey for damage and if everything looks OK I'll restart the daemons.

Hmm, and what about the "root partition filled on marvin (rapidly)" that you initially wrote when Marvin crashed. Is that still the reason it crashed, and why would that happen?

Still getting MB's. I feel lucky, my cache is growing.

But now I'm going down. Not in flames, but rather in icicles. It's OK though, it's Yule time, so ice and snow is to be expected.
LOL.

Continuing the 'wassup?' theme, I reckon Lando's crashed as well. The SSP says Lando is still running two AP splitters - which it can't do while Marvin is down.

And that puts a big question mark over the four MB splitters Lando is supposed to be running. Three splitters on Vader would account for the three channels currently marked 'in progress'.


And now no new tasks, MB or AP, for my GPU host. Running idle...

I'm still getting MB tasks for my GPU quite easy.

I take it it's not OK to leave it as it is until Monday in it's crashed state then? If non of the remote stuff works?


It's mainly generation of astropulse work that will suffer. No permanent damage should result. But I'd like to have everything in working order before folks do leave for the holidays.

Don't put an enormous amount of time on the AP stuff now this close to the holidays. If MB works as it should, that would IMO be good enough for everyone.

Put AP into the freezer until after the holidays, if it doesn't behave without a lot of work put into the problem.

everything in your billfold?

What in the world is a billfold?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/billfold

noun
1.
a thin, flat, folding case, often of leather, for carrying paper money in the pocket and with fewer compartments than a wallet.

2.
wallet (def 1).

Jesus C, Chris. Even I, a Swede had heard the word billfold before, and knew what it means.

This is going to be very good in the end. I'm sure Santa will fix this any year now :-)

It's not the end of the world if my computer runs dry. If there is anything to crunch, I crunch. If there isn't anything to crunch, well I guess I do not crunch.

Merry Yule Setizens.

while I was AFK

Wait, why would you even be AK (at keyboard) on a Sunday?

Maybe he's having itchy fingers, and need to scratch on something :-)

Apart from that, I see no reasons why Eric shouldn't just enjoy his weekends, and forget about the project.

Many AP channels being split are also erroring out now.


EDIT- to add to that, MB splitter output has almost halved, so the ready-to-send buffer is falling & we should be out of work in the next 18-24 hours.



That should be OK, most peple have a 7 day buffer.

Heh, even with a full cache of 100 my GPU will run dry in about 1 day. I only managed to get half of that before Marvin crashed again.

A 7 day cache is impossible to build up for me, with the max 100 WU limit...
My GPU will once again go silent, in just a couple of hours.

Note: I'm not whining, just stating the facts. It's not the end of the world, or my world, if I run out of WU's :-)

try looking at the right stats http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?userid=8889212&offset=40&show_names=0&state=4&appid=20

Try being clear about what you mean maybe, you were talking about vlar storms, and AP's doesn't exist as vlars....
