THanks for clearing that up MArk, seems to be an intermittent problem. I think i'll just kick the router in a minute.

Mind your toe when you give it a kick..........


Good advice... About 30 years ago I was having problems getting a "punch card" program to read through the IBM 2540 card reader/punch. The program was about 700 cards long and kept getting read errors. Out of frustration I hauled off and kicked the darn card reader! Broke a toe and walked with a limp for a year. The foolish things we do while still a teen....

Regards,
JDWhale

I kicked an IBM 1622, caught it right on the corner.

Hi Ned,
I remember me, a frustrated programmer opened the door of the "Central Processor Unit" and kicked into the circuit-boards, but this was his last day, he get fired immediately, so you and Whale had have very big luck....
It was a nice time to work with MFT, MVT etc on this machines.

Yep, there's a little message on the home page.
And Scarecrow's Graphs show just how constipated things are.

Just upped my cache just in case.

So Matt,
I see the assimilators are still offline. Since you caught this on Sunday morning and they're still not working, wondering if it's serious?


Judging from this snippet (below) taken from the home page news, i'd say things are serious:

June 2, 2008
The assimilators started malfunctioning over the weekend, which indicates that there may be a problem in a portion of the science database. We've had to turn off work generation while we discuss our options. We will probably be out of work in 8 hours or so.

Not super-serious. The current understanding is that some database spaces filled up, or at least became unwriteable. The solution may be simple but time consuming (off for another day or two). No data loss or server crash or anything like that. More details after the usual outage and the forums are back on line.

Maybe the Server in question just needs a little Green Draino or an enema. ;)

Don't want to jinx things, but the system's looking pretty good.
The Work Units & Results Awaiting Deletion cleared not long after the daily outage. The Ready to Send buffer is almost full, and while doing that the Waiting for Validation & Waiting for Assimilation queues have been slowly draining; i expect once the RtS buffer is full they'll start to drain faster?

It would have been interesting to see how well things would have gone if we'd had a big batch of short Work Units going through, i expect these longer ones have helped minimise the server load a lot.

There does seem to be a pattern here.

Has anybody considered that this is how intelligent alien life forms are trying to communicate with us. ;-)

I propose installing an inflatable Matt doll at the console for weekends to ward off evil spirits.
