LOL.....now THAT should be disabled...........

I didn't expect anything else.

What could I possibly post to test it.........

Lemme see now...something about..........oh, never mind...........


How about we just try NOT to test it.

I noticed a new server function on the server status page, that I am not familiar with. What is vote_monitor?

Don't think I've ever seen an official explanation, but I think it's moderation related... votes on whether to put Mark in the Hole, AdSeg, or General Population.

(Sorry brother cat.... my Rice Krispies told me to say that) ;)

It's been there bothering nobody for ages.........

May as well leave It disabled.

I think the vote monitor has something to do with candidate signals at the time of reporting WUs. Potentially as a way of giving priority to looking at certain areas in the DB first, rather than just starting at the beginning and brute-forcing all the way through it.

If that's not it, then my next guess is something along the lines of that's what keeps track of the ever-changing granted credit for a given number of flops.

*shrug* I don't know. Haven't seen an official explanation, so the best the peanut gallery can do is come up with theories.

So far, so good. I leave the house for two hours and come back to find that I have been issued 16 APs..topping off my cache.

Hope everyone else gets enough to keep their crunching dens warm.

Yup. Maybe we are lucky and somebody puts some Tapes in, in about 6h. ;-)

My E7600 got a few CPU WUs (next ~ 16 hours).
The 940 BE have still a lot of renamed GPU VLAR WUs on CPU (still a few days).

The GPUs got nothing (and do since days other projects).

Nice, that there are also other projects for to warm the chips.. ;-)

The splitters are offline.
Maybe they are offline, that they can support the other work?
If the DL of all WUs is completed, maybe they will switch on again the splitters?

BTW. A pity, that they didn't wrote in the news, that they changed everything.

A 5 min. report/request backlog after every scheduler contact.

A 5 min. break between every scheduler contact, if shorter:
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: Not sending work - last request too recent: xxx sec


A very low CPU WU limit in progress (WUs for ~ half day).

My GPUs couldn't test the limit.


I hope one day S@h will run 24/7. ;-)

..and I hope my machines can fill up then (again) enough S@h-WUs for 24/7.

The last-req-too-recent-xxx-sec has always been there so far as I know. Certainly makes sense.

All machines back on to catch whatever dribbles through.

Not on SETI, but it certainly makes sense.

It's been here too, but while the all-pwerful Mork was handling the database, the interval was set at 11 seconds - not many people will have seen the 'too recent' message.

Because Jocelyn is so much slower (and we don't want to lose the one remaining reliable database server), the interval has been set to 303 seconds as a protective measure. That's probably why people have started noticing it.

It might be cold comfort, but SETI is not alone in its server woes - Climateprediction has a similar problem, and is also waiting for a new server to handle its uploads - due in the next week or so.

Is it a conspiracy between BOINC and server manufacturers????

Holly Molly! My system just cleared 3 VLAR's from one GPU card. They took almost 2 hours each running all three at the same time. My rig was next to useless while that was happening. They were resends, so hadn't been tagged as VLAR's. I'm happy to crunch them, but that brought my powerful machine to its knees.

I know what You mean, I'll be happier once we're rid of these unique resends once and for all. :D

Something nice is happening. Over night, my pendings dropped by 100,000, and my RAC shot up. Clearing the backlog has got to be a good thing, not so much for my RAC, but for the huge amount of space it takes up.

This is good! I have dropped another 6000 pending units in the last hour. I think they are unclogging the system. :)
