Jeff-With the database crash, resends aren't going out so the quoroum to validate your WU's isn't being met. Have to wait on those....

What are you talking about Blurf? :-O

Resends are being sent out for all task types or are what I'm getting just figments of someone's imagination?

Maybe you should take a look at this thread, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=76115&sort_style=6&start=0. ;-)

Cheers.


Ok didn't see your post-sorry. I was wrong. Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for the Update.

I do not know if this is the right time, or even the right place to say this but:

Once upon a time a WU took about 24 hours to process, and there was no work buffer. Seti Classic. Then they got called tasks.

Boinc Arrived, and one could add a work buffer to allow for downtime, up to a week, or more. Situations like the current one left many still with work to process. I used to be able to have 2 weeks of tasks downloaded.

Computers continued to get faster & they got multi-core processors as well...

Then Graphics processors got added...

I set Boinc up to get 8 days of work, and it gets 100 tasks, 30 hours. Seems like saying you can have any colour car you want, as long as it is black.

Foamy is "Lord and Master".
(Oh, + some Classic WUs too.)

Eric (or someone in the know)
How many "tapes" are on a transfer disk?

(I'm sure this has been asked a long time ago, but I'm not sure that the answer given is still valid)

(I'm sure this has been asked a long time ago, but I'm not sure that the answer given is still valid)

IIRC the last bulk purchase of transfer disks via GPUUG donations was 2 TB drives. Assuming that's the size, up to about 37 tape files (50.2GiB) could be possible. (2e12 / (50.2 * 1024^3)). However, a "full" drive is probably defined by some reasonably conservative criteria so the next recording session has no chance of running out of space, I'd guess 80% or less.

I remember my first WU on Classic.. 117 hours on a Celeron 633. Then I turned the screensaver off and the next one dropped down to 15 hours. Never turned the screensaver back on again.

I remember my 133MHz AMD 586 took 222hrs with screensavers turned off.

According to my (somewhat incomplete) records, my 333MHz iMac took 17 hrs and my iMac 350MHz took 15 hrs to finish a unit. I remember that I was running the screensaver but I think I may have let it blank after a few minutes to speed things up. I liked the old screensaver better than the newer one.

Patience Tim, there is over 100.000 computers asking for new work and the feeders can't keep up.

The feeder queue (what's available when the scheduler assigns work to somebody) can only hold 200 tasks at a time, and only refills every 2-5 seconds, so it is very much luck of the draw as to when your request gets processed versus what's available in the feeder at that same moment.

The news is welcome Eric, but I still think that both News and Technical News threads shouldn't be open for just everyone to have a general discussion in as that would stop those that are to lazy to read through all the "thank you" posts (and other stupid crap) just to get the info that they need without having to ask stupid questions that have already been answered because they're to lazy to read through everything (I'm sure that you and the other guys know how thankful we are for these updates without us having to say so). ;-)

If someone wants to ask a question, surely they can do that it the Number Crunching or in Questions & answers sections.

Cheers.

I agree completely, Wiggo. Maybe someone could start a "Thanks" thread for everyone wanting to express their appreciation so it would be easier to find actual status information in threads like this.

In fact a lot of us do, but we have to get others higher up to agree with this.

We do have "Panic Mode" threads in Number Crunching that can help those wanting to know why they're not getting work. ;-)

Cheers.

I know it's sacrilege to ask this, but the last word we had was that the database rebuild was to be completed on Saturday morning, Pacific time. It's now Monday morning Pacific time. Can you please give us an update?

Thanks!

It may be Monday morning in Berkeley, but it's still half an hour before sunrise! I certainly wouldn't be working on a database yet in their timezone. Maybe we'll get some more news later in the day.

Ugh, these people have the luxury to only work when the sun is up? Bah!

When I'm at work at 8am this time of year at the Northern Hemisphere, there's not been a sun in my life yet! If it wasn't dreary as today, it usually is down as well when I go back home at 4.45pm. I'll have to wait till end-of-January to be able to see the sun still at the end of the day.
