Yep here we go into another dry spell with no explanations in the technical news of what the holdup is.
Just a quick note of what the problem is like---(sorry folks having problems with the database again were working on it)--- or just something easy and simple like that would do it and would let us know that there are aware of a problem and are working on it.
That would be all it would take to satisfy me.
I do sincerely appreciate all the work they do, and time that they voluntarily put into this hopefully they'll let us know something soon before I run out of work that way I will know whether I should start crunching backup on one of my other secondary projects that will keep my computer busy and my volunteer work for humanity going.

Thx Richard. Looks like there are many problems lately and communication seems to be a bit low. But ok, its 2 in the morning there, lets see how things develop when they start to work in a few hours.

It's always a good thing just to have a back up project with resources set to 0 so what if you run out of work, it will pick up automatically and crunch that project.

When Seti comes back up, that back up will go to standby and seti will resume.

Also, remember it's 2 am in California right now. This thing started to go down somewhere around 9-10 pm last night? They had already spent the day working on it when it decided to take a nap on us.

I'm sure they will attend to it when they get to work today. Probably 8-9 am Pacific time.

While an inconvenience, it is certainly not an emergency. My back ups have been happily crunching away for several hours.

I for one, would prefer to allow them to get some rest and approach this with well rested eyes in the morning. Unlike me, who finds myself on the night shift, lol

Zalster, I know it's in the morning there and ofc I don't expect them to post at this time, but overall theres not much communication between the team and us lately, at least thats my impression.

Many replies came to mind..

No full time staff...
Part time project...
Communication takes away from repair...
Lack of $$ for intern...


Finally decided on

If it's a major FUBAR they will tell us, if it's a hiccup then they won't.

(Side note) I wonder if the VLAR storm that started just before it went down has anything to do with the failure?

I've noticed the last work units I was getting were all VLARs and Beta is nothing but VLARs at the moment.

Could just be a coincidence. But it does make me wonder..

Beta are testing new/updated CUDA/OpenCL VLAR app, so nothing to do with the VLARs that were coming out on main.

Beta and Main run different splitters. Having VLAR on both is a coincidence (or Murphy)

Beta are testing a bunch of new OpenCL apps, not specifically VLAR.
There probably needs to be a more sophisticated approach than the blanket 'no VLAR for NV unless CC 3+' so as to allow the OpenCL NV app to have a try, but that's rather delicate code. (IOW I doubt Eric has the time to fiddle with it).

Still only one splitter showing green, and it's not doing much (if anything).
Both systems out of GPU work, and what's left for CPU work about half of them are all shorties...

Work outages come and go but as usual the lack of communication from the people in the know stays consistent. I'm sure the usual minions will jump to there defense and yet the fact is popping a note on the homepage cost nothing and takes seconds.

I sent Matt and Eric a message about the splitters being down this morning before I went to work.
Matt replied mid afternoon, saying that there was some kind of screwup coming out of the outage, and that it "went unnoticed longer than usual due to most of us being preoccupied at the Green Bank Telescope at the moment".
