Geeze, we're almost at 7 million MB Results out in the field. I can't even remember the last time we were at such a high number.

How high can we go before we're going to make a server or database barf all over the place?


I wonder if the boys and gals in the lab are deliberately trying to find out. If that's that case, just hold tight, it could be a rough ride.

I just UPLoaded a few MB WU's, but still quite a lot waiting to report and
get uploaded.

Now, MB Results out in the field 7,001,148. It was a very long time ago since we had that many MB results out in the field.

A lot of little ones went out yesterday or overnight.

According to the news on the main page, we will be down for almost 2 days again, beginning in about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Everything will be down, a total blackout, website and all, including the Boinc site.

I hope all of you have a big enough cache to last for the down time.

See you on Thursday.....


Nope, you will see me on Sunday.

I hope they bring the splitters back online soon, the Ready to Send buffer is rapidly dwindling.

Does anybody has a spare WU to share with me? LOL

I've got about 11 days worth for my gpu's and 7 days for my cpu. So I should be good to go for awhile, I'm sure the fella's will have the splitters back into shape and everyone filled by then....least I hope so. ;p

MB splitters are back online. There was a bit of a problem with Gowron earlier but as its tasks have been shifted to the donated JBOD, it turned out not to be a big deal. Gowron is now handling backup storage only.

Here I go again. And I have no days left since my cache is set to 0.1 days cuz I like to share. Too bad more people don't.

Message 1239216 - Posted: 1 Jun 2012, 1:14:59 UTC

I do wonder about that, too. I keep a one-day cache, which is normally enough to cover the weekly outage. If everyone who holds a ten day cache dropped to something more reasonable, there'd be more WUs to share around... and I imagine that WUs would be validated far more quickly too. My 'pending' WU count hasn't gone below 1000 for weeks (it hit nearly 2800 after coming back from the outage). Is it really that good for the project for WUs to be 'sat on' with hosts using huge caches for days before they're actually processed?

Just a thought, not having a go at anyone at all.

The way I see it is that we are all sharing whatever the servers can dish out. This is a huge project, with no telling how much data will need to be crunched before we get any results. Things are definitly heading in the right direction with Seti hardware, so I think the capability to deliver more work to us is increasing. The more work that gets sent out, the better our chances. I run a 5 day cache, and that is 5-6 thousand wu's. I crunch every one of them with few errors or invalids. In order for my rig to do as much science as it can, I don't let in run dry if I can help it.

I suppose I was just considering Folding@home's philosophy of timeliness of results vs the bulk of work that can be done. I appreciate the improvements in the hardware with regards to WU generation/transfer/validation/etc, but I was thinking that with smaller caches, WUs (from a global project perspective) could be processed and validated faster, freeing resources in the databases and other server processes and generally allowing S@h to run more efficiently.

I admit I don't follow the forums here that thoroughly (some users have been less than friendly), so I don't know if this is an idea that's been raised previously.

You ought to hang-out more!

Yeah, it's talked-about from time-to-time. I'd rather have the work I turn-in error-out or validate quickly, but...I kind-of like to have work to do when there is a power-outage or a RAID corruption or something, too.

Just over this little outage I had a computer run-out of CPU work (but for some reason had plenty of GPU work in reserve).

And for some reason we don't seem to always go FIFO, so the last thing you download may be the next thing you crunch while older tasks sit.

So... what do you do?

I'm trying a happy 5-day medium, but apparently this whole misreporting issue is messing with the estimated run times so what I set isn't necessarily what I get.

The difference is you aren't bragging about having several days worth available to crunch while complaining your uploads won't go thru. For the people who do those are not words of encouragement to those of us who are running on empty.

You choose to run on empty. Why should that be a concern to
any one else?

Come now, kitties......

The subject of cache sizes has long been debated.
Fact remains, it is up to the individual users to choose what cache size they wish to try to maintain within the choices made available by this project.

Let's not stir the pot please.
