Message 1384258 - Posted: 24 Jun 2013, 16:43:55 UTC - in response to Message 1384249.  

I wonder if the creation rate could be related to file 20jn12ac as it has been in its current state for way longer than is usual.


That file is still in SSP.


I sent a message to Eric asking about it, but have not received a response as of yet.

Looks like they re-kicked that file as it's back down to 13 from 14 but whether that will help it....

Anyone else having problems getting work? Plenty of Multibeam work shows on the Server Status Page, but I've only got 1 plus 4 Astropulse tasks in the last 14 work requests. The others resulted in "no tasks available". I wonder if the feeder is working right.

There maybe another VLAR storm happening again.

OK, so I'm not getting any work either.

What's broken now?

According to the server page, everything is OK.

Do you believe that? I don't. So at the very least, the server status is broken.

Bah!

2 of your computers are getting work, just one isn't. Look to it to make sure it is asking for work.

Definitely something wrong somewhere, my 660's are already doing backup projects and my 550Ti's are about to do the same.

A feeder issue maybe?

Cheers.

To add to the difficulty in getting work, there won't be any to get anyway- the splitters have stopped splitting again.
Even though the server staus page shows themn running & tonnes of data ready to be split.

Now I will get gastric problems, including flatulence, belching, abdominal bloating and pain, headache, pain, indigestion and dizziness.

I should hope so.

With all of that going-on, I'm just glad he's in Sweden and not at my house.

I did get a response from Eric this afternoon whilst I was at work. He was having some time off with dear Angela this weekend.

He said that when a dataset (he used the word 'tape') gets stuck like that, it DOES tie up a splitter, thereby reducing potential work production by 1/6th, as there are 6 enabled MB splitters at present.

I emailed him back, politely asking why then, was the offending dataset still languishing in the queue....LOL.

If what you are telling me is correct, it looks like he DID give it a kick, but it must have gotten stuck again.
I suspect when he gets my message tomorrow, he'll take another look at it and either kick it again or eject it.
Either way, it's on his radar now, and I am sure he'll keep an eye on it.

The moral of the story is, kitties......
If anybody notices a dataset 'stuck' like that for more than a couple of days, when everything else around it has been split and sent out, please feel free to PM me or at least bring it up in the forums. It DOES tie up a splitter when that happens. I'll try to get the message to Eric.

I am wondering what the sustained inbound traffic to the servers as seen on the Cricket graphs for the last 10-11 hours is all about.....

It is unlike any 'normal' comms from the hosts, and it is also unlike any previous bursts of uploading new data from the lab.

DOS attack??

The kitties are curious.

I was thinking it might be the usual data from the archive traffic, but limited by whatever is causing issues with the Scheduler/splitters/feeders.

There's plenty of work there, but it's just not being allocated. AP assimilators are backing up again. Ready-to-send buffer actually spiked much higher than usual before it topped out.
So something's gummed up the works.

I just dunno....
Whatever is going on, it is not usual.

When you are on the Cricket graphs, click the 'long term' link.
There has not been any activity similar to this since the move to the colo.

Nope.
But then we haven't had Scheduler/feeder issues either since the move. Till now.

The one not getting work is no longer online. It was GPU only. I recently acquired an i7-3820 and MB and 4x2GB of quad channel 2133MHz RAM (thanks, Craigslist!), and have replaced Unimatrix002 with I7-3820. Am now running 8 HT cores, with 4 CPU tasks and the other 4 reserved for graphics support (love those AP 6.04s!).

When I can get them, that is.

Right now, neither is getting work except for a (very) few APs overnight. I7-3820 is about to run out of work; Fermibox2 still has a bunch to do.

Re. lack of AP work. Could it be that more and more switch to doing AP only (like me), due to the credits + there's now a stock linux GPU AP app?

Maybe, but I note that on the server status page, the number of channels to do for MB hasn't changed since at least last night, and very few (if any) of AP have been processed either.

Definitely seems to be a splitter problem, at least at first glance.

UPDATE: Since my last post, SSP says that 3 channels of AP and 3 of MB have been processed. Not very much.
