What's going on with the obnoxiousness? Bored from this outage?

And the lotto here in Canada just rose to 48 million this past week. (nothing compared to the over 100 million jackpots in the States :( )
What if Fiction was Fact and Fact was Fiction and vice versa?

Does this happen EVERY weekend or what??


Yes, almost every weekend, starting last christmas and even before that :)

I thought this was an established project?


No, this is just a test lab :)

(Sorry, I couldn't resist).

BUT, I won't give up. I now have a lot op AP's to upload which will be credited at once, once the upload problem is gone, because there're all re-issued ones :) Still waiting for a 5.03 WU though.


Well, well, one got through tonight. Sneaky little devil ;)

It is the weekend. The staff is 3 people. They are NOT on call 24/7. If it is easy, they can dial in from home for a quick fix. If it is hard, it usually looks like:

Monday: Diagnose problem.
Tuesday: Fix problem, normal Tuesday outage is extended to cover added time for fixes.
Wednesday: We are all recovering.
It was not meant in a bad way. Just curios why, and anxious to try out Raistmer's new v9-pack.
I think my electrical bill and my ears will thank S@H for not running full speed this weekend... :D

The cricket graph shows that the network saturation has been persistant for over a day now. Never seen this kind of behaviour before. Wondering whats going on... The seti staff would have been in the office by now to look into this. I mean, I know that the network bottleneck cannot be solved just like that, but I was expecting atleast a minuscule dip in the graphs.

I have disabled the network activity on most of the crunchers, but my upload cache is building up.

Well, this is something I never thought I'd see:



Kudos to Matt and the boyz for assembling a set of servers that can keep the network fully saturated through the whole weekend.


Richard,

I think you have enough space for a flock :).

Why? At the moment it's 02:08 Monday morning. I'd give them a few more hours to get to work & sort things out.

The staff office is in the western United States, near San Francisco - time zone UTC -8. It'll be another seven or eight hours before a human being is in a position to intervene manually, so my bathtub will continue to overflow till then.

Hello Richard,

Since the nitpicker isn't running yet, I take the liberty of emulating it: shouldn't that be UTC-8 ? It's earlier at their place, they are still sleeping while we are already at work. Lucky bastards ;-)

Regards,
John.

Nit duly picked - thank you.

But just think how long they have to stay at work, while we're already down the pub....

I know it's sort of counter-productive and possibly negative, but when I saw the cricket graph was maxed out, it was getting closer and closer to being a full 48 hours (the length of the "daily" timeframe) of having the link saturated. I was hoping to see it go the full stretch and save a screenshot. :D Got it. :p

My turn to nit-pick - the Berkeley cricket admin 'days' are 42 hours long. What planet are they from?

Next target - maxxed out for a full 10-day 'week'?

The site may have been down for a while that accepts the completed tasks. I have found that to be the case on my own system. I also just installed the 6.4.5 version and seem to have lost the data for the completed but not yet sent to seti task i had done.

And so instead of reading the forums to see if there's possibly a problem, detailed in other threads, such as this one here in this forum, you think "let's make a new thread"? ;-)

There's a thread here as well, as there is one here and here and here, here, here, here and here.

It's rather difficult not to find a forum in which there isn't a thread about the upload and download problems that are plaguing Seti at this moment. ;-)

Waiting for a moderator to merge all those threads into one

Seti bandwidth is saturated. Has been all weekend long. There's nothing wrong with your system. Hopefully when the guys get into the office later today (Berkeley is UTC -8h) they'll be able to fix it.

yeah but newbies tend not to realise that the place they upload to may be getting maintenance and therefore be down.
