Well by rights the 2 new servers should just about remove all the old troublesome hardware (or at least greatly reduce almost all the load on them) given the performance that Synergy has shown us. :D
Cheers.


but it will take a month before they get those ? if not 6 weeks.

I'm betting right at a month. NKOL has everything on hand except for the HDD's for the Download server and both servers are fully funded. I wouldn't be surprised if SETI had them in under a month's time.

Looks like the crickets are still hiding from the kitties this morning. If they would just offer up some WUs, the kitties wouldn't bother them......

Looks like the Crickets just set the record for 0 --> 93 from a standing start. Hold on tight.....

Well back of sorts - now getting http errors, and it doesn't look as if the splitters have woken up yet...
The old girl is taking a bit of cranking this morning, just spray some "easystart" in the intake and give her another go

Looks like they have the scheduling server turned off right now and may be doing some cleanup.
The validator/deleter processes look like they are working again, as my 'valid tasks' and pending totals are finally starting to come down.

I just want to report the 400 or so WU from my AMD machine, it was working on Prime Grid until yesterday afternoon and then starting on SETI.

A 560 and a 460 can go through work in a hurry if it wants too.

[edit]Looks like the reporting actually went through at one point, but it did not get the acknowledgment from the server[/edit]

Is it me, or is there a period of time every year (maybe over a two or three week period) where everything just seems to go TU ? Rest of the year is pretty stable.

Sort of like celebrity deaths...they seem to come in clumps of three in a short period...then zippo

The folks in the lab are just having a bit of bad luck. It probably helps with several things borking up at the same time as it allows them to fix them all at once, more or less. Gives them a bit of time to get some non-critcal stuff done in between server woes. Even though a lot of problems seem to be a "critical issue" at the moment :)

Both my little ones have reported and one even got a WU, but my main machine has made several attempts to report 990 tasks and has failed every time.

Well, I see that ET still has control of the servers and is doing their best to throttle the distribution of new work.
We must be getting close...LOL.


Yes, I believe the project is over. I'ver heard rumours that many people running SETI has been getting E-mails from an unknown source, with the following short message:

"We are the Borg. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile."

So, I had my fears from the beginning of this project. What we would find might not be the nice benevolent ET that most people was thinking about. Now, we're all collectively getting the punishment we deserve for being so naive. It's just a matter of months now, before they will start assimilating the entire population of this planet, and there's nothing whatsoever we can do to stop it from happening.


Hmmm......the email I got said something about providing my bank account and password so they could convert their resources to our monetary system and store it in my account. To which I would have complete access to for my own purposes, of course.


Most of the ones I get say they need my name, email addy and password, address and SSN so they can improve my email's security, but I think it's actually Ferengi phishing.

Hi,

VR reports that between IP address 128.32.255.105 and 128.32.18.150 there is a non responding link. it wont respond to VR asking for id or whatever..
Also shows from the UK to S@H traffic is routed via Chicago & White Plains and route is described as good up to that 1st ip address.


Hmm did you say they are routing the completed WU's through the white plains missile base where they have secret missiles stashed and the secret defense facility's. Maybe Seti finally found something and thats why no WU's, No use looking for something when you know where it is and its coming.
OMG it's true the 2012 thing get out your gun's and prepare to defend yourselves there coming. That would explain why my kitties are staring out the window up at the sky they are here. LOL.
Anyway Yes I have notice lag on the forums and the boinc has been dropping transfers something terrible WU's half uploaded half downloaded transfers started at 40k a second and drop to .1k 2 seconds later etc.

Gimme BEER and WU's!!!!

Things seem strange as http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6379672 reports zero in progess, but the system keeps doing:
22/02/2012 19:24:55 | SETI@home | Reporting 475 completed tasks, requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA GPU
which keeps failing. My other system has managed to return 292 OK though. I guess things will sort themselves out in time.

Same here; my four big machines can't get a report in (one of them is dry) but most of the littler ones can report fine. I'm starting to wonder if they should separate reporting and requesting new work.

One of the newer improvements available in BOINC, following experiences like this, is a config option:

<max_tasks_reported>N</max_tasks_reported>
report at most N tasks per scheduler RPC. Try N=1000 if your computer has lots of tasks to report and is having trouble completing a scheduler RPC.
New in 6.12

Though you may need to make it a lot less than 1,000! I couldn't even get 13 through a while back.

Thanks, Richard; I set it to 10 on my home machine but I'm currently getting "cannot connect to server" rather than HTML or timeout errors (yes, I did flush the DNS cache...).

I hope your home machine is one of your v6.12.34 machines - all but three on your account are v6.10 or earlier, where it won't work.

Yes, HomePC01. It's reporting that it's reporting 10 completed tasks, but now it's back to "HTTP internal server error". Guess I need to update a few BOINCs but for some Linux machines I'm stuck with too old an OS for things that want more modern libraries. [Another failure to connect to server just now...]
