Message 1041689 - Posted: 13 Oct 2010, 12:09:24 UTC - in response to Message 1041661.  

I missed something?
This week we don't have a 3 day outage?

My machines have WUs for ~ 1 1/2 days, and get the famous:
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: No work sent
Message from server: This computer has reached a limit on tasks in progress


How they can get enough WUs for to bridge the 3 day outage? %-(


From what I read we will be having a 3 day outage, as they have more plans to test Morks memory. The limits are still intact, so none of us are going to be able to load up. I could be wrong, but it wouldn't be the first time, nor the last.

Hmm, strange... I got about 5150 WU's for my Crunchy and now I get the message "This computer has reached a limit on tasks in progress".
That's enough for 10 days (a lot of VHARS) so I don't get it why some people don't get any work.

When I look at tasks it says I have 13041 tasks, most of them are ghosts (and pending?)...

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5451977


didn't get anywhere near 5k wus...just got about 1k for each cruncher...enough to cover the outage (just) and yet i had the cache set to 10/10...

...damn that "limit on taks in progress"...it is annoying particularly after recent events ... would have been nice if they had opened the gates ...

Jeff has stated that he intends to give us higher limits again on this week's run....

AFAIK, we have a normally 3 day outage - and in past we couldn't UL/DL during this..
So maybe it's only a BUG on the server status page - that the UL/DL server/service is 'running'.

If .16 is still the UL server, this URL is offline/not available.
.13 and .18 (in past DL server), this URLs are online/available.

No, no joke, reality. Just the same as you see on any freeway. They can esily cope with the light traffic at 3 am: but fill them up with rush-hour commuters, and everybody grinds to a halt.

this is not a problem, and certainly not a reason to panic, but do anyone know what has happened to stats, and will they work ever again?

Oh, they shall work again, and nothing will be lost, everything done recently will be reported in one lump sum.
It's just that with the problems over the last couple of weeks, Seti has not generated the stats dump to send to the 3rd party sites that keep track of such things. It's very access intensive on the database.....
Hopefully soon after they come back up on Friday. If mork cooperates a bit.

Message 1042095 - Posted: 14 Oct 2010, 17:26:14 UTC - in response to Message 1042039.  

Now I'm getting p'ed off. I've got more than 1.5 million SETI credits, and not one single online store will accept them as valid currency.

I tried buying a Porche, but they laughed at me. I tried buying a Volvo, but they shunned me. I can't even buy a toaster.

What's the use of it all. What's the use of the credits. I'm beginning to believe that I've been had. My 1.5 million SETI credits doesn't seem worth anything.

If that's the fact, then I may be forced to sue, sue, sue....


try to imagine my problem when i get a raise to salary, and it was 3,6%, try to find something from the store which cost 3,6%, they all cost euro something.
i had to settle to one bottle of beer, it was 3,8% alcohol, so it was close enough.

Just shut the Frozen 920 down.....just finished it's last tasks.
The rest of the crunching crew still have a little work left, although several will not last until tomorrow.

The kitties will be sniffing for work in the morning......

My main cruncher will make it through to this time next week. :p Love APs. Then the single-core cruncher has been offline since Sunday. Kept having weird issues where it would just shut off like the power was pulled. It would memtest for hours and hours, but boot the OS up and either it would die during the splash screen, or it would last 2-3 hours and then shut off. Five bulging caps next to the CPU socket. US$4 ebay auction for replacement caps and some soldering should fix it.. then it can continue working on its ~8 days of work.
