There's 692 1001 1627 tasks sitting in the buffer currently but the scheduler is still offline so no way to access them yet. Not sure where they are coming from since I still see no splitters splitting.

This is not good, but it is fun watching Einstein go up.

There's 692 1001 1627 tasks sitting in the buffer currently but the scheduler is still offline so no way to access them yet. Not sure where they are coming from since I still see no splitters splitting.
Those increasing numbers had me scratching my head for a bit. I naturally assumed those were resends piling up, since the splitters are still off, but with nobody able to report tasks, I was puzzled as to where they were coming from. Then it dawned on me that they must be tasks that are simply timing out on the server, having passed their reporting deadlines.

Jeff, I think you have figured it out. I was wondering where they were coming from too. Makes sense.

Those tasks are very likely 1's that have not been returned by their deadlines so they're ready to be resent. ;-)

Cheers.

It's all fine. The project will be back in January. Maybe a little earlier than that.

I hope it is earlier than that - my backup projects are rapidly running out of data, and even my backup backup projects are a bit short on work.

Yes.

But in all seriousness.
I can only imagine they meant January for the year 3141.

Eric mentioned Informix, which I suspect is IBM's Informix DB, probably waiting on a new build from them. Or at minimum awaiting an undocumented config switch as a temp work-a-round. There was some backend working happening last night, perhaps they gave it a go and ran into further issues.

It is that and last I heard we are on an older version of it.
I would hope it is a well know issue they ran into and time, because of the large size of the db, is the only factor.

Sure. Under specific conditions, and provided you don't need do anything like lock a table while writing data.

And when it comes back again, every SETI computer on the planet being bone dry, what will that do to the servers, and the databases?

Poof......
And down we go again.

This is going to be an interesting weekend.

That's what I thought, so I've kept back a little stash of work (4 hours maybe) for just that reason. Hopefully, it'll be enough to get me through, what may prove to be a difficult re-start. For now, a little more Mass Effect seems in order.
