MB splitters struggling again.

The MB splitters are purring right along, you won't see a RTS until they fill everyone's caches up. Have you not seen this before?

BTW, what those AP tapes that appear only for few mins and marked as whole channels crunched almost immediately? Does some AP splitting go or it's just artefacts from damaged (at least for AP splitting) tapes?

Matt mentioned that (/dev/null (Mar 16 2015)):

But turns out pretty much all the data in our queue was already split by Astropulse so only a few thousand workunits were generated. We broke the dam, but there was not much on the other side.

The project has said all along that it won't send out 'make work': if there isn't any new analysis to be done on a tape, SETI won't waste our electricity by repeating the previous run.

Yep, which is why I made the comment.
If things were working as they could, have, & should, the output from the splitters would be better than 35/s, not barely touching 30/s, with frequent dips to 25/s & even less.
They're not as bad as they have been, but they are struggling, especially when you consider the WUs returned per hour is around 85,000. Well under the 100,000+ of a shorty storm.


EDIT- and there are a lot of shorties coming through at the moment, exacerbating the splitter output limitations.

Maybe those AP's which are now splitted will help MB splitters...

Do you have an ideia if there is still a lot of tapes who needs autocorrelation? Or have we almost seen all of them?

We are re-processing them fast, as there is no AP to do.

I'll count up on Friday, when all my machines will report their logs to the central processing point.

OK, here's a pretty rough estimate, based on what has passed through my machines. I've taken the launch date for SaH (MB) as being 1st. June 2013, and everything since then as being done by v7 - it's easier to work in complete months.

The 'TOTAL' column is what I've posted in the data distribution thread, and hasn't changed at all since the start of 2015. The v7 column is what I've done since that simplified launch date, and the v6 only column is the difference between the two.

Recorded	TOTAL		Processed with		Processed with 
				SaH v7 (since		Sah v6 only
				launch June 2013)	(derived)

2007		 350		   4			 346
2008		 911		 869			  42
2009		 546		 455			  91
2010		 748		  99			 649
2011		1121		 147			 974
2012		 843		 583			 260
2013		 588		 536			  52
2014		 232		 232			 n/a

Grand total	5339		2925			2414

Edit - damn, double-counted the 2013 subtotal. Corrected.

I count 12 AP tapes mounted in the last 10 hours and I was sent one AP WU during that same period. Anybody doing better? They must be going somewhere.

It looks like I've grabbed ~120 AP so far today.

On the whole day I have 30 but all but one were before 10:00 UTC. When they go to single tapes with breaks in between I generally end up with none or one or two at the most. Not sure why that is.

Edit: I guess Message 1672495 - Posted: 1 May 2015, 7:19:06 UTC explains it. The tapes have few WUs on them so only a few crunchers get them.

Looks like most of mine were before 10:00 as well. With 23 from 1 May 2015, 10:04:25 UTC & later. The last one was 1 May 2015, 17:00:05 UTC. So ~4 hours ago.

Out of my 30 or so machines only about 20 are even configured to run AP. So that is only like 6 per machine for today.

Tape 21jn12aa is 0.00 GB it will be interesting to see whether this is an aesthetic error or whether or not this tape will be completely skipped it has (done) on the AP side with the MBs still to be split.

I imagine it has < 0.005 GB of data. Otherwise I would expect it to display 0.01GB. Unless they don't do any rounding in displaying that figure. Then it might be 0.009GB.

One thing is sure it will be split superfast

That would be so awesome if .5 or .9 of a megabyte held the answer that we are all looking for

There's another 50.20gb tape being split by AP. It just started, so.. get what you can whilst it lasts!

edit: there's a second tape being split.
