Well, looks like roughly a 12k/h deficit.
I find those spikes in up/downloads every 4 hours interesting.

Saying nobody can fill his cache is unfair to some 140,000 users with a RAC of 500 or less, to whom 20 WU would be enough for at least a 4 day cache.
That said the 27894 users with an RAC above 500 (thanks Robert Ribbeck, Scarecrow et.al.) are way below capacity and requirement.
So, an estimated 80% of active users got their piece of cake and will be happy - how about starting to give second helplings of the remaining cake?
At least that cake doesn't rot...

Seeing as it's Sunday and Monday a holiday in the US it looks highly unlikely to be enough if performing outage as scheduled.

Wonder if the electricity companies see a dip in power consumption?

I hope patience does not run out as fast as WUs... We'll need a lot more over the coming weeks.

For those interested - my AP only cruncher has 37 tasks in progress right now so the limit doesn't seem to apply to AP.

yupp, but these 27,000 Users neets - i assume - 80% of all Workunits available.

No problems with downloads here. I turn in a WU, and I get one back right away.


The same with me. That is fine while the download servers are turned on, but at this rate I expect to enter the next 3 day outrage with about 4 hours of cache. And I increased my cache setting to 5 days, from 3.

Question: the effects of all this on us users is obvious, but what is the effect on the project? Compared to a (recent) typical week of unplanned outages, is S@H processing more work, less work, or about the same? And how does the processing speed compare to the flow of new work from the telescope?

From the RAC/users chart with added daily credits they need about 60%
EDIT: or perhaps 52% if the numbers are calculated differently *sigh*

It will probably take a few weeks of this new cycle and the subsequent 'fine tuning' to assess the impact on Seti workflow of folks like me who are going to stick around but may not be able to get enough work to continue to crunch 24/7, and those who choose to leave for their own personal reasons.
