Scheduler's acting up again. Lots of requests result in "Project has no tasks available" messages.

I hope there's APs being split come Saturday. The parts for my new rig arrive Friday. I'm excited. I would love to be able to do anything memory- and peripheral-intensive without the 'system' process forgetting that it exists.

Then why aren't the crickets maxed out?

How cold is it there? Where I live it's currently 11F and falling, with a wind chill of -5F.

The current view of the cricket graph is rather normal when there is not a flood of shorties or lack of AP tasks.

Not at the moment. Uploads are up & down & downloads have dropped right off, with the odd spike.
Things are not well.

I don't know how you can say that things arn't well when all here are constantly bouncing off the limits imposed (I'm getting really sick of those limits and all the bouncing).

Cheers.

Bouncing off the limits on this side of the world too.

It's not as cold as -5,and the wind has gone down a bit.

Even less to complain about than before. ;)

Well the cricket does show a small dip so there could have been a hiccup then.. The dip in the graph does also seem to correspond to 3 sequential failures I got on my machine that is requesting work every 5 minutes. Where I got the 'couldn't connect to server' message.
One thing I don't like about these kinds of graphs is that they are just snapshots of what is occurring at that interval when checked.

Yeah, bored is right, at seeing the same old message all the time. :(

My real problem here atm is that it being summer now is the time when my little village's phone exchange likes to break down and that can take 2-4days to get fixed if they need parts (which is nearly everytime) so a 3 day cache just doesn't cut it. Plus usually when that happens SETI also seems to go out in sympathy so I have to then hit up my backup projects again.

Cheers.

Yeah, a very small hiccup at that, I'd only start to worry if that hiccup went on for more than a day or so. ;)

Might have been small, but it went on for several hours.

One thing I don't like about these kinds of graphs is that they are just snapshots of what is occurring at that interval when checked.

Actually.. it's not a snapshot, it's an average for the designated time period. I've messed with setting up a Cricket graph of my own, but I couldn't quite figure it out. What I did figure out is that it's not an instantaneous snapshot every 5 minutes like the server status page is (though all the statuses on that page are not all from the same moment, but they each are from one moment). Cricket takes SNMP broadcasts from hardware and just collects the information for the configured time period for an update interval (in the case for Berkeley's cricket graphs, it appears to be 5 or 10 minutes per pixel..pretty sure it's 5) and presents the average for that time period.

Once the time period has elapsed and a new one starts, I believe the individual data points that made up that average are thrown away and the average is saved for larger views (weekly, monthly, yearly), which again just takes those 5-minute averages and makes a new average out of however many data points are needed to fit into the scale.

But your point is still valid. Without a real-time view of what is going on, there is too much speculation from the ambiguity of the information that is presented. I just wanted to jump in here and mention that Cricket isn't an instant view at certain intervals.

So I couldn't stand it anymore. I took a screenshot of the cricket graph and pasted it into photoshop and zoomed in. There are six pixels per hour, so each pixel/column represents 10 minutes in this particular setup. A lot can happen in 10 minutes.

That's been my point exactly for quite some time now, and quite a few others as well sadly. :(
