Looks like trouble ahead.
The MB Assimilator queue has started climbing again, and the MB & AP Ready to Send buffers are shrinking- and the splitters haven't cranked it up to bring them back to their usual levels.
Couple more hours & we'll be out of work.

That is a tough nut to crack I believe. We need a volunteer with a serious button finger, pushing every damned AP WU through the validator manually, while at the same time being able to logical thinking (is this one some WU that should be validated against the wingman, or sent out again?)

Great job that one, isn't it? LOL

Edit: The person volunteering should get 10% of all credit he pushed through.
:-)


Volunteering then ??? If they fed-ex me the server overnight I'm in too ;-)

Hold onto your caches, kitties.
Ready to send on both AP and MB now down to zero, so work requests will be more miss than hit for awhile.

looks like plenty ready to crunch.. do you think they might be running it lean in order to bump up the limits?

No new limits yet, but I am pleasantly surprised how well the caches maintained overnight since WU production slowed.

MB splitters kicked back on and RRTS is sitting around it's cut-off point of ~250k. AP is still zero and all of those splitters are not running. Maybe whatever is causing the validator to fall on its face is affecting the rest of the AP operation finally. I would have to imagine the WU storage is getting pretty full holding all of those "waiting for validation" tasks.

looks like the SETI people may be trying to fix the APvalidate problem. The AP splitters have been 'not running' for a few hours now, presumably to stop more AP units going out until the problem is fixed. In the last few minutes I have seen APvalidate3 go from 'not running' to 'running' and currently all 3 APvalidators are 'disabled'. With a bit of luck, by the time I get up in the morning we may have a temporary or even permanent fix and a massive amount of credit being allocated for the backlog.

Looking @ the SERVER Status Page, I'm seeing

ap_validate1 synergy Disabled
ap_validate2 synergy Disabled
ap_validate3 synergy Disabled
also,
ap_splitter1 synergy Not Running
ap_splitter2 lando Not Running
ap_splitter3 lando Not Running
ap_splitter4 vader Not Running
ap_splitter5 vader Not Running
ap_splitter6 vader Not Running

As of 17 Oct 2011 | 21:50:07 UTC (; 23:50:07 local).

Hope they can fix this, well tomorrow is Maintenance Day, but can not complain
as I've been served well, lately, don't even have Pending Work.....(A few, I think).
I do miss AstroPulse, also it's another (BROADBAND) and (<1 micro-second) pulse find, search!
And the same 1.4xx.xxx.xxx Hz or 1.4GHz.
(It probably also could find rather slow spinning neutron stars)?

Hi Blurf, long time no see.
No, work enough, never been out of, MB, only AstroPulse has some kind of problem,
which surely gets fixed :)
And those connection issues, sometimes I see an occasional 17-10-2011 6:19:14 | SETI@home | Temporarily failed upload of 19se11ab.29212.476.6.10.103_1_0: can't resolve hostname

But it's a matter of seconds sometimes minutes, or 8 hours, one more request starts
the 'time-cycle', changes back to 4 seconds. All 5 rigs have BOINC 6.12.34. This is
my LT, only use the (T2400) CPU. (Dual-Core).

AP units are now clearing at a very fast rate. What ever was stuck, must be free now.

Hot damn. I'm going to be busy for an hour or so adding all of these granted credits to my spreadsheet. Also, look at that RAC!

Edit: And it only took 14 minutes. Guess I'm getting faster at this. Also, the validation storm gave me 34,612 credits.

My RAC just jumped up 4000 from when I saw it earlier today.

Most of that was from validating AP work.

All my dreams came true last night! Got up this morning and 40 APs had validated overnight causing my RAC to jump back to something more reasonable:))

Thanks you for spending most of Monday fixing this problem guys. How about a brief note to let us know what the problem and solution was. Nothing detiled, just a 5 minute message when you get in on Tuesday would be great.

Interestingly, looking down the list of APs still pending, all but two are waiting for wingmen to complete. The two that are not are both cases where two people had already been allocate credit and my result came in third (but before my deadline)

looks like they may have found a way of validating the simple cases, but have left more complicated issues like this.
