Seems as if something has received a fix as my uploads are suddenly start to clear. :)

Still takes multiple clicks of the Retry button for me.


Although it's not taking as many clicks as it was.
However this upload improvement (minor as it is) appears to have come at the expense of Scheduler contact. As difficult as it has been, it's even more borked than it was before.

Not getting many Scheduler timeouts now.
Now they just fail.

I can upload, but not contact the Schedluer- or it times out. Or i can upload, but the Scheduler just fails.
Either way, getting work just isn't possible.

I got 33wu's, of course I can't work on them for about 12 hours and 19 minutes... Einstein is in the way...

It's just the alien's way of trying to know that not too m;any of us shall find them too soon.

Excuse me if I am hard to understand at times.......I've had a difficult few lives.

And now uploads have gone from bad to worse, but Scheduler contacts haven't improved at all.
It'll probably all come crashing down before morning.

:-(

Secondary projects in my BOINC are 'happy' about ..

I guess (worry) S@h is down, until after the first power outage ..

After a fresh start .. - at Jan/7, 8 should run 'everything' again well.

It's not completely dead. I got 3 or 4 uploads through and got one scheduler contact to report some completions in the last half hour. Can't get other uploads through or get new work, so gpu is crunching Einstein on 0 resource share to keep the house warm.

It looks like a long weekend + holiday. Wish they'd loosen the limits if they are even needed - I'm not convinced of that.

Every once in a while, the kitty claws get through to the servers letting them know they still want work......
It's still all basically fukayed.
Mostly by the server problems.
But also by the underpinnings of Boinc's 'don't bother the servers' attitude.
Server contacts borked, don't try any more.
Too many uploads pending, don't ask for work.
Even ONE download backed off, don't ask for work.
Things not running smoothly, don't even ask.
A fart in the carload...back off.

Any excuse to back off.
And, if things work, stop at 100 tasks for your GPUs.
Even if they can return 100 tasks in a few hours or less.

This is rather maddening when one has 9 rigs online begging to do as much work possible for this project as they can. THIS project, not Einstein or some other backup. THIS project. The one I care about.

Whatever has stuffed things up, it's an odd one. There have been a couple of spikes in inbound traffic, but uploads & Scheduler requests have still been stuffed even during those periods. There's been the odd very slight dip in outbound traffic, yet most Scheduler requests result in an error, those that aren't an error timeout- It'd would be 5% or less of the requests that actually get a result.
Still the network traffic (inbound & outbound) is right up there.

Two very odd upticks in received traffic shown by the crickets.

Dunno.

Yeah, those 2 (and even the smaller more recent one)- yet even at those times uploads & Scheduler requests were still screwed.


It's bed time.
Will be interesting to see if either system still has any work in the morning.

I had to resort to Einstein

... Yes, it's their way of saying "come over to us, we're still trying to reach 1 Petaflop (1,000 Teraflop), so we're wrecking Seti on purpose". ;-)

Just got limits worth of ghosts and then the first 20 started downloading. Downloads look as tough as uploads.

Edit: had received only 21 tasks in the preceding 24 hourts (per BOINCTasks), and the ghosts are new.

and it all started when they mowed the green grass,
when I started receiving shorties.

They used gum and bailing wire to fix the
combo of Normal MB's and AP's but they need to lengthen shorties by turning them into VLAR CPU jobs or by some other means.

Thats the way CSMA/CD works. its fine up to 85% to 90% of the rated bandwidth

then it falls over itself from that point on to 100%. Especialy if they do not

prioritize the control traffic!!! ACK ACK ACK ACK.

From my point of view it worked much better when we had 1 or 2 AP splitters less (than now) in use.
Even with the limits it was much more satisfying than now!
By accident? By SETI? By BOINC? By me?
