I've reported 14 APs since the outrage ended and all have gone into pending. Is this a cause for panic?

No. All it means is your wingmates have not finished and reported their Tasks yet. We are coming out of a major outage, things may take a day or two to settle out...

Donald I'm well aware of that but since both of my machines are so slow and when APs are out there I keep such a large cache I have found that usually my wingmen have to wait for me.

The SSP says results waiting for validation 4 million.
Seems the servers can`t catch up atm.

Yes, I saw that myself about 2 minutes after I posted. After an outage like that, all those results coming in at once, everything gets backed up, and as I said, it takes awhile to settle out.

I'm not half as intelligent as some folk on hear so please bare with me I don't understand a lot.

I've been reading the Post about the server problems. Has anyone any idea when they will be giving out work again any time soon. I've managed to download one CPU Task, and the other day I had downloaded one GPU Task but had problems crunching on my old 610 Nvidia and it got returned as an error I think.

How can I get more GPU Tasks for the 610 and WU's for the CPU's I have on individual machines.


the servers are up and running and dishing out WU's as they become available
be patient most WU's are gobbled up right as they become available and it will take a while till the servers have their wu cache build up

i alone sucked up a couple thousand WU's since startup on all my machines now multiply that by a couple thousand ppl with high hitting farms

if you look at the server status page you will see how many wu's are in the cache and ready to send out

I came down with a bad case of i don't give a crap

One of the things that affects the ability to get GPU work is the type of Work Units available. Seti@Home does not control the telescopes it gets data from, we piggy-back off other people's telescope searches. Depending on what kind of search was being done, the Work Units fall into 3 Angle Rate (AR) ranges - Very Low (VLAR, <0.12), Mid-Range (0.12 - 0.99) and Very High (VHAR, aka "Shorties", >1.0). Those numbers are approximate, and from memory.

CPUs can handle all three Angle Ranges. Early GPUs would seriously bog down when running VLARs, so the Scheduler was programmed to NOT send VLARs to GPUs. So if we are splitting data from tapes of VLAR searches, GPUs don't get a lot of MB work. That may change soon, since more modern GPUs handle VLARs as well as any other Tasks.

...and there are rumours of that the next generation of GPU applications will enable Nvidia GPUs to crunch VLARs. These applications have been in test over in Beta for some time, and VLARs "go like stink" on a GTX980...

Around 20 mins for the VLAR compared to 1 hr 20 mins on CPU on my machine. But they need more ATI users to test the app. I think, it's been a while since I revisited that message board about the app. Anyone else remember more or correctly??

Just seen a very strange AP job pop into my queue.

ap_22jn08ab_B0_P1_00052_20150819_29490.wu

Newly split this morning, and sent out within seconds. But we haven't seen tapes like 22jn08ab being split since, well, 2008 - and I was going to say there was no sign of it on the SSP, until I hit refresh to be sure and it popped up.

Picked up 4 of those as well, unfortunately they are on a slow machine and probably won't be crunched until this weekend if I remember how long it takes that machine.

I seem to have picked up about a dozen and half of those as well. Even one CPU task. They must have blown the cobwebs off that tape......

I was just coming here to mention that I thought we had basically completely crunched through all the 08 tapes known to exist.. but it appears I'm not the only one that noticed that.

I have three of them at the moment, but it will be ~10 days before I get to them.

I've got 80-odd AP tasks from June 2008 in my data distribution database, but none from this particular tape - or 22jn08aa, come to that.

Looking at the chart, there might be some more lurking - I've got none from 27 June or 30 June, either.

Thanks for the update.

The splitters are splitting, assimilators assimilating, validators validating, deleters are deleting & files to be purged are being purged.
