Hopefully you got more than I got this morning when I turned my computer on. They lasted 4 minutes each and then I got 0 tasks. I am assuming those are resends of tasks that have failed or went invalid on other computers. A simple resend/

Just a guess I don't think it means the DB is all fixed and happy again.

The four WUs I received an hour ago completed quickly. But, GREAT NEWS ... I just checked again and I've now got a full load. :-)

You lucky one. One user did abort almost 200 tasks and You got them...

And something weird... Your host 7334605 has 340 tasks in progress when it should have only 200 (100 for CPU and 100 for GPU).... Or is that You have lost tasks in progress? Did You made Reset Project or something similar?

I don't know the answer to your question. I haven't reset. I'm seeing 187 WUs in queue, and 12 crunching = 199.

I also noticed on checking that I've got a really high number of errors (46). I believe the most I've seen previously was 3 or 4.

After browsing Your "In Progress" I did notice that Your host has 10 'Anonymous platform' tasks, all sent 19 Mar 2015. Did You install optimized (Lunatics) application and then uninstalled it?

If so, that could cause so many In Progress -tasks and errors. Servers currently don't send "lost" tasks. So if You do reset or install/uninstall optimized applications, those tasks which were in progress at that time will be lost, server just sends new tasks, not those which were in progress.

Eventually those tasks will time out.

I guess that explains it, to you at least (heh). Yes, I did install/uninstall Lunatics.

Your host has these numbers;
In progress (347) · Validation pending (122) · Validation inconclusive (5) · Valid (234) · Invalid (0) · Error (46)
That means you have at Least 147 lost tasks attributed to your host. Looking at the task list, every task from this point onward is most likely a lost task that will eventually time out, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7334605&offset=560&show_names=0&state=0&appid=
Due to tasks having different expiration dates, some will expire sooner than others.

As others have said, turning off "resend lost tasks" has contributed to problems with the database before. There isn't any reason to think the current database problems haven't been assisted by someone turning off "resend lost tasks".

You're speaking slightly over my head. Please clear this up for me. I don't know what you mean by 'turning off "resend lost tasks"'. It sounds as if you're suggesting I did something wrong which could cause DB problems. Or failed to do something I should have done.

I haven't done anything of this nature that I'm aware of. The last thing I want to do is cause problems to the system.

No worries...you did not do anything wrong.
'Resend lost tasks' is a feature of Boinc that is turned on and off on the servers, not by the users. Right now it has been disabled due to the extra load it puts on the servers and database, and the database has been a bit troublesome lately.

Unless you have direct control over the servers I doubt you have done anything "wrong".
The people controlling the servers turned off 'resend lost tasks' at the server level suspecting that feature of somehow interfering with their webpage server. Some people here told them at the time that turning off that feature has resulted in database problems in the past. We now have database problems currently....I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Meanwhile, back on the ranch. Err....the kitty crunching farm....

Here, in South Florida, my air-conditioning isn't working as hard.

Just the opposite here.
I've had to shut the window and the screen door to the garage that let computer cooling air in so the kitties don't catch their death of a chill.......

Off to work for me.
Hope that Matt has success today.

And the kitties can scratch up some GPU kibbles so the crunching den isn't so chilly tonight when I return home.

Meow for now.......

No work on 4 machines. One full day now. :((((
Why donate to SETI????


They're working hard to sort out the issues, I'm sure. Hardware issues have been a big problem; and that's true for any kind of project. Don't give up hope, Lynn! Every penny helps for upgrades to help correct and even prevent these kinds of things. But, alas! There will always be hiccups along the way. Try to stay positive, it will get better soon :)

Oh no... I have three days of cache left on my main cruncher.. should I start panicking yet? :p

Oh well. I went idle for a few weeks waiting for AP to come back.. if it ends up going idle again.. *shrug* not a big deal at all.

OK More News

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=77096

Looks like you all may have to find other dates for the party this weekend. Hopefully they will chase all the gremlins out of the DB early rather than late next weekend.
