In 4 hours and 40 minutes, give or take half an hour, we will again start fighting over uploads, reporting, and downloading of new work units.

Follow this soap opera closely. Will mork crash/freeze today, tomorrow, or not at all? How many users will post this time that they will leave? How many users will actually leave?

Another interesting weekend is in front of us...

Ahh, yes......

Stay tuned for another thrilling episode of....'As the Seti Churns'.

Same here...just got 20 of them scheduled for the Frozen 920.
Looks like the upload bandwidth has dropped to the point where they could start the download servers.....would be cool, 'cuz the Frozen one would like to get back to work and warm things up a bit again.

Do you mean that you are using a hack to provoke a resend of lost tasks, or that there is some option that I can't see? I've got seven ghosts that I'd like to regain.

I checked my iMac when I woke up this morning and when I saw that it's uploads had gone through I made certain that the other 2 finished their uploads as well.

Now all we need it some work, all 3 still have some but the CUDA machine is out of SETI CUDA.

I've got 38 ghosts I've been hoping would get resent. I got stuck with them on the 1st and they don't time out until the middle of next month. Two weeks is long enough, I guess I will finish my last 4 GPU tasks and do a detach.

Are they new work just sent out? The replica database is around an hour behind so they might show up in a little while.

How about letting us little guys get a few first. My Seti cache is down to 0 on both my systems and I only need 15 or 20 to get me through the outage. Don't be so greedy there are over 100,000 other systems out there that also need work.

Don't know which of your machines you are talking about but..........

2 of your machines show nearly 5000 wu on board. Allowing some for ghosts, just one of your machines has enough work to last for the entire 3 day outage for all 4 of my machines. I do about 4000 total for the 3 day outage.

How about leave some for us..........

Not sure what's happening, but inbound traffic is way up. DDoS attack? When everyone hits the per machine limit the inbound traffic ramps up, but outbound is still pegged & i expect it'll be another day till everyone hits the limits.

To be honest with you, I wonder if something in the way the servers are configured right now is not the cause of the problem.
I am having an extreme amount of difficulty getting downloads to complete. Not quite the same as usual when the bandwidth is pegged. I am able to get many downloads to start when hitting the retry button, but they either error immediately or start to fail one by one with HTTP errors. Usually the problem is more one of connecting in the first place.
All these dropped connections and retries must be taking a toll on the available bandwidth.
I have enough work assigned by the schedulers, but can't get it downloaded to process.


EDIT....
And that inbound bandwidth is NOT uploading/reporting.....the server status page shows only 30K results reported in the last hour. Yet the inbound is almost as high as right after startup when several hundred K of uploads and reporting was going on.

thought about the cricket graph: in the past the inbound+outbound bandwidth was fixed at 100 Mbps. Right now that is not the case. when did this change occur? or is there a problem indicated?
