Well, my "work" machine is dead in the water. It hasn't been able to upload since yesterday afternoon, even using the 72.52.96.30 proxy!

Has anybody tried using programs like Tor to enable using proxies.
I know it is designed to provide security/hide users etc.

Haven't any experience myself, but maybe worth a try, but might need a knowledgeable person to set up, I just don't know.

I got myself 13 or 14 APs just before things went down earlier today. Don't know what the DL speed was since I was sleeping, but I woke up to find that I had a nice list of "waiting to run."

Remember how the server problems started when task estimates jumped up to several hours?

Preliminary observations are that estimates for work issued since the outage have started to move back towards normality. I haven't got enough yet to measure how big the change is, but the last plan we heard about was to make a five-fold step change this first time.

So, for the time being, you may get five times as much work as you expect - you have been warned ;-)

Of course, the quota limits of 50/CPU and 400/GPU should still be in place to stop things going off scale - but I haven't been able to check that yet.

I can confirm that too, i snipped my Two Astropulse tasks out of my client_state.xml and got them resent, their estimated runtimes matched what i expected,
i then got all my recent MB Wu's resent, they now match Wu's i got just before the bodged changeset, now going to do my remaining shorties to get my DCF back up to One.

ALL THE WAY in one jump?? !!

What did the DCF get down to on that box? If it was below 0.1, won't we be in -177 territory? One of my 9800GTs is showing DCF=0.0391 - I'd better got and nudge it into a fetch. Back soon.....

Edit - got some already. Showing 1 minute 15 seconds for a shorty, 4 m 15 s for mid-AR - I'd expect 4 minutes plus / around 20 minutes respectively, so we're not getting the whole DCF correction back in one go. Phew - may be a bit rocky, but not enough for errors. Panic over.

My DCF has Sky-Rocketed up to .19xx from where it was this morning, between .01xxx and .02xxx.

GPU ap's still have longer estimates than CPU ap's, though...

No new work received since the outage ended.

I've always had flops in my app_info's (except for the HD5770), so DCF didn't go down as low as others did:

27/09/2011 23:00:02 SETI@home [dcf] DCF: 0.175808->1.307273, raw_ratio 1.307273, adj_ratio 7.435800

And i've been doing pre and post change Wu's (suspending old Wu's), first doing old Wu's with DCF ~1, then doing the post Dodgey changeset Wu's with DCF ~0.18,
then swapping back to doing Old Wu's again,

Now i'm rushing through my resent shorties in ~2 minutes, DCF climbing fast, APR rates look normal.

Edit: Richard, remember i'm running Jason's special Boinc.exe, and i haven't had any AP since before the bodged changeset, so DCF there was ~1.

I'm deliberately running without flops so I can watch what the server's doing cleanly.

That DCF of 0.0391 was set by a mid-AR which completed in 1,279.42 seconds The new estimate of 4:15 (255 seconds) is almost exactly five times smaller.

I've completed the first task from the new estimate set - a shorty, so we wouldn't expect DCF to reset all the way, but it's come up to 0.1310 - that's fair enough.

I'd expect fast Fermis to scrape above 0.02, so once they get and complete their first single WU, I would expect them to start fetching normally again - but still to have DCF well below 0.1, so it won't be safe to remove the cap completely next week. We'll need at least one more interim step.

Definitely looks like ETAs are way down. Looks like ~33% what it should be normally.

I had that happen to Me a few hours back, about a minute ago though I was able to snag 14 wu's for the 2 GTX295 cards in this PC, I have a cache of 1.25 days.

And the Network is UP!!!
I'm now able to get through without a proxy. Not getting a lot of work due to the logjam but when I do the downloads "hoot", peak speeds of up to 30KBs. Hopefully the fix is in.

DCF's are all over the place, from 0.09 to 1.4. (Don't know why, I disabled DCF correction in my Rescheduling program.) Estimated GPU crunching times on new units looks pretty good but CPU times are about X3.

Quick question just received 30 short WU,s after outage all resend time outs for 27/09/2011

Should I leave these for an hour or two to let the replica data base catch up or will they be okay to crunch. (13,358 seconds)

Deadline for these 11/10/2011

I'd crunch them, and if you're worried about replica catch up, then hit the activity menu and suspend network activity. That will suspend everything on the network so no requests, d/loads as well.

Current server status shows replica DB caught up...
Looks like AP work is going out again, so bandwidth and downloads are stuffed.
No MB left to split until the AP stuff goes out....my GPUs are gonna starve.
