Message 568903 - Posted: 16 May 2007, 20:41:29 UTC - in response to Message 568886.  

Finally able to upload and report ~90 WUs over the course of the morning. Very good.

Now I'm getting "no work" when requesting new work. According to the server status page, there are over 500k ready to download.

Remember when you are up to your butt in Allegators.. the first thing to do is drain the swamp.
I think it would be best once they have recovered most if not all outstanding WU would be to pulse release new WU at 30 minute intervals for a day or so.
I finally sent my last WU up about 2 hours ago. I hope I can get more work before completing my 8th year with SETI
When we finally figure it all out, all the rules will change and we can start all over again.

Eric,

Would throwing add'l H/W (a dual core puppy - P4 PD 940 3.2 GHz 800FBS 1GB DDR2 667MHz - I've here in reserve) at it to help handle the comms load be of any use?


We're about to put "ptolemy" in the mix in the next few hours. I'll certainly let you know if we need more beyond that.

Eric

Well that's still improvement. You've gone from pounding on Bruno's (and his clone) door to pounding on Galileo's.

In any event, the validators and assimilators are still of so there's no deadline pressure, even if they're overdue at this point.

I hate getting my technical news on a message board. While it's interesting, to be blunt, I don't have the time to wade through hundreds of posts to find out what's going on.
Please continue to update the "technical news" page with at least a summary of what's going on.

Just my 2 cents worth

Slowing the number of connections increases the number of successful connections, each success reduces the number of retries, and before you know it you can turn the rest of the world "on" and not worry about it.


Nah... ;-)

And you're basing this on what, Brian?

@MW:

Generally speaking if there isn't a new dated post in the root, then it's going to be mostly chat about the topic du jour.

Still there are 130 posts in this thread.
All I want to know is what is going on....I just don't have time to keep up.

Then just take a look at the front page.

All ya need to know there in less than 2 seconds/cents!

Meanwhile, leave Boinc to do its stuff as best it can and Berkeley (ok, we really mean Matt, all one of him and no sleep) will soon(-ish) tidy up the data and connections to oil the WUs on their way through the system.

Still that's just a rough idea. The technical reports gave more detail without wading through dozens of messages.

Oh well, no one seems to get what I'm saying, so I'll shut up and keep running seti@home like I have for the last few years. I just won't know what's going on as much. I can live with that.

It's real easy to do without wading, Wayne - just put "Matt Lebofsky" without the quotes in the search window in the upper left corner of any forum showing activity in the last couple of hours, and you'll get the latest word on what's going on.

I have now uploaded my finished WU's. I can't report them to Seti main, but I could report them successfully to Seti Beta.

So it seems they are making some progress. :-D

Now, this isn't the thread to discuss Thesisology ;)

...of course it may be the right room for an argument...

Hi,
two of my computers working 4u broke down exactly on the day your server did ... Both of them are up again (new boards/processors) but they are not receiving new work ...
Try it ever and ever again!

Now I get this??? Any ideas ??
[...]
5/16/2007 10:04:57 PM|SETI@home|Scheduler RPC succeeded [server version 509]
5/16/2007 10:04:57 PM|SETI@home|Message from server: Completed result 16fe05ab.10775.2368.859632.3.29_0 refused: result already reported as success
[...]

No need to worry. You had successfully reported these results earlier. But because we have/had dropping connections your client didn't get the scheduler reply which would have told it that the report was successfull.

Regards,
Carsten
