OMG, 2015 tapes? WOW!

Yes the big AP run on the 24th, was 2015 tapes too.

Twice within a 7 day period. Are they trying to spoil us or something?

Also noticed that someone did some cleanup on the tasks list. So it now only shows the currently active apps.
Application: All () · AstroPulse v7 () · SETI@home v7 ()
It is probably related to the updated Applications page which also now only shows the current apps.

Yeah, and that reminds me that I might as well remove the references to "AP6_win_x64_AVX_CPU_r2163.exe" from my app_info.xml file.
The chance that I will get any WU to run with that app, is probably very low :-)

There it goes again, 9 more tasks Abandoned, 29 Jun 2015, 19:05:52 UTC - Abandoned

At least one of them abandoned by the wingman too. I didn't check all of them though.

Edit: But that wingman, have abandoned tasks en masse....

Maybe the router is responsible?
Is there a way to test this?

Why are you concerned about the router that works perfectly fine? The Set-Top Box will not work correctly if the router isn't working correctly, the STB will not even turn off if the router has problems, went through that a year ago, it is a New Router that works fine with All 4 computers and the TV. The router is Not the one Trashing tasks for no apparent reason.

And the Qos setting in the router is likely prioritizing the TV signal stream. What do you think that does to lower priority tasks?

What else could cause a delay of 9 min, if not the router.Maybe it causes random buffering delays.

I am just trying to make suggestions.


I'm starting with the theory that if the dicey looking code sections I posted the comments for, or even some others I didn't reach yet using similar questionable assumptions, engage a search of the entire hosts table, then that could easily amount to some minutes when the servers are already under pressure.

Perhaps the seeming periodicity of the host TBar pointed out coincides with periods of higher server load as well ? not that the load would be a cause if so, but just another indicator that more things tend to fall over and expose the problems underneath under congestion.


Maybe a look at the QoS settings in the router (and in the OS too) would be helpful too. Setting Boinc at a higher QoS priority setting in the router may help, as well as making sure that QoS is installed in the OS (if available).

Well, since nothing comes out of the splitters, my GTX980 will be cold in 3 hours. And even if they start splitting full bore, and I will be able to fill the cache to the brim, it will become dead cold again, 6 hours into tomorrows outage.

100 tasks for the GTX980, only lasts about 6 hours....

GTX980, all AP's gone since many hours. CPU, a few tasks left, Intel HD4600 haven't started on its 41 AP's yet, had many MB tasks to do first.

Q8200/ATI 4850, will stay happy for 10-11 days.

Celeron M Lappie will stay happy for 10 days.

In short: I want more :-) (as usual)

20) Message boards : Number crunching : What would you buy for a Z97 Motherboard? (Message 1695634)
Posted 4 days ago by Grumpy Swede
Lately I've have always been a fan of Asus branded boards. I purchased a second Z97-A board and was not impressed by the build quality. I have heard of motherboards coming warped, but this one was a first for me. I installed it and its working, but not sure if there will be problems in the future. I've looked into EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI and they all have their mixed reviews. What Z97 SLI board would you buy if you were in the market to get one? I just need a solid no frills board, that will run two 980tis for Seti.
