OK, I understand. Thanks Claggy for your explanation.

The BOINC server system will always be a mystery for me :)

It's understandable :) Your question have been asked many times, and I've suggested a little notice on the server page explaining this (rather important) issue, but guess it wont happen...

Jeff Cobb just posted this in the down loading new work units thread

The server anakin crashed. So I built a 64 bit version of the transitioner and deployed in on synergy. Anakin is also a download server (the other being bane) via DNS. I do not want to restart the lab wide DNS server remotely on a Sunday, so I hope this will sort itself out until someone can restart anakin (I am not back to work until Tuesday). DL traffic is maxed out in any case.

For those that like to fiddle with these things, the working download server - bane this time - is 208.68.240.13

That's the other way round from usual, so anyone who still has .18 in their hosts file will be stuck until Tuesday.

All i'm getting with my work requests are "Project has no tasks available". Hopefully it'll settle down over the next couple of hours.


Curious since cricket graph is active but not maxed out and there are plenty of results available (both MB and AP), but the numbers available are decreasing suggesting that they are being sent somewhere.

Every now & then i've been getting a few WUs, but most requests result in "No tasks sent" or "Project has no tasks available" messages.
Looking at the graphs, although maxed out it's jaggy indicating it's not keeping up with the load all the time. And the rate at which the Ready to Send buffer is shrinking is very slow; you'd normally get a steeper slope.

But at least we're getting some work till they can get things sorted out on Tuesday.

No panic.

I have noticed that I have got that old ghost problem again, ATM 111 of them.

I am sure that others are affected too.

If possable could you turn back on the "Resend Lost Tasks" before all these ghosts start wreaking havoc in your server cabinet:-)

Grant - remember the delivery pipe only holds 100 WU despite the delivery pool having about 900,000 WU available. The delivery pipe fills and empties very rapidly, but with so many hungry crunchers out here it spends a lot of time filling compared to having tasks available.

Yep, and when things are running normally the feeder re-loads much faster than it is at the moment. The slow rate at which the Ready to Send buffer is shrinking & the slow rate at which Work in Progress is climbing shows that is the case; things aren't running as welll as they usually do. But at least they are running.

As long as things hang together in their cobbled state until tomorrow's outage, I'd say it's working pretty well.

I haven't been able to get tasks again. This trouble with the router is getting very old. I am unable to ping any of the servers but 128.32.18.150 setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu. Everything else has been dead to the world from my end this whole last week.

Well, hope is that the new RAM for the router will arrive soon, and access to the secure cage the router is in can be gained to do the upgrade soon as well.
Then we all have to cross our fingers and see if the increased RAM does indeed solve the issue.
Otherwise, they are off on another troubleshooting session with HE, I suppose.

The past few weeks there have been major issues with the connection and servers. things seem to be starting to get back to normal. One of your computers has downloaded over 100 tasks to process on your CUDA device today.

I can't up- or download.

But with ap_validate3 down since several days now my AP units won't get validated anyway.

Frustrating ...

Ever since Jeff ringed up the temporary fix yesterday, I have had much better than normal connection. Downloads come through at 10x normal speed with few than usual backoffs. Also the cricket graph has consistently been at maximum and there are plenty of WU available for MB and AP. I currently have 48 APs downloaded which is around 40 more than I usually get between my machines. Any chance that this temporary fix could be made permanent?
