Yep, it's gonna be: "Reporting 62 completed tasks" -> "Scheduler request failed: Failure when receiving data from the peer"

23 tasks left on my 560Ti host, and 18 of them is under 5min shorties...

APs gone away with the wind


When that infernal yellow fluffy thing is recaptured make sure its cage is properly secured, and the aforementioned thing restrained to its perch this time around.


Ah well, onto backup projects on two out of three crunchers, the third will join sometime later this evening.

Uploads are slow as molasses, too...

I think the whole SETI system needs a (re)boot in the bum...

It is well past noon o'clock here on the left coast and it looks like it is not going to be fixed today, it is time for a group panic.

Has the "resource share" setting in BOINC version 7.4.36 been disabled? Tried changing it in my profile yesterday (02-28-15) and it hasn't changed yet.

Everything works perfectly here now...
Except from a few minor things, that went pear shaped more than 10 hours ago:

1. I can't report any tasks.
2. I can't get any new tasks.
3. I will run out of work in 4 hours.


Apart from those small (almost not worth mentioning) issues, everything is just dandy :-)

Danger, danger, Cricket just did a jump to 89.57 Mbits/sec.
I fear the worst :-)

Edit: Yup, the worst just happened. I managed to report all my 85 tasks, and I even got 4 new ones.

LOL

Get new work, as fast as possible. I do not think this run will last for long. There's something seriously wrong with some server(s), that makes the project go up and down, up and down...

Lets see

1) Science Project - Check
2) Virtually unfunded - Check
3) Not a business - no staff 24x7
4) Mostly donated equipment - Check
5) Never promised constant work or connectivity - Check
6) Backup Projects are available for when Seti is out of work or
down - Check

What was your question again ?

I notice a ready-to-send buffer developed over night.
It's a shame it required the Scheduler to fall over & no work to go out. If only we could get the production rate to sustain it's peaks, then we could receive work & develop a buffer at the same time...

Wow indeed.

There are only 6 people listed in the "About SETI@home" link on the home
page and 1 of them is part time. The other 5 have full time jobs as scientists
doing work other than Seti@Home....I am actually amazed that they get as much
done as they do - some come in afterhours (ie no pay) and fix problems and
yet others come into work on Thanksgiving and kickstart things if needed.

As yet no huge source of funding has been found (and some of these guys do
apply for science grants to keep this project going) or is likely to be found.

So they rely on what they can scrape up and get the users to donate (and
very few do......)

If they do make contact I would assume that most likely the project would
be "taken over" by various governmental agencies and we'd never hear a peep
from them again..........

My overall point is - its been this way for years - its is this way now - and
most likely it will be this way for the forseeable future....

Sorry if my reply seemed a tad harsh...........

Oh, come to think of it, I haven't seen AP work for a month now.
I wonder what happened?

What was your question again ?

This is very well put.

We got only 2 overworked full timers. 1 very overworked time shared scientist. 2 time shared administrators. All running a world-wide project 24x7. Sound like fun?

Problems have happened before. For example see Eric's comments when he had time to comment on this prior occasion.
Eric's comments on May 2007 problems

Things will smooth out eventually because we have so many volunteers who care and a committed mini staff.

So, still have a question? Read #'s 1-6 below again.
