If they would at least communicate more ...

In this case: What's the problem? What do they need to make it better? Something like that?

In general: It would be nice to see some results from all the work people are doing, at least once per year, or so ...

It's a quarter to seven in the morning in San Francisco. You expect someone to be working on things and communicating that to you at that time?

Well, you have to be optimistic when running Seti.
That's what it's really all about.
Being optimistic that we may find that proof we are all looking for.

Yes. "Being processed" on the SSP means that work has started on that tape. But when the splitters are paused (e.g. for maintenance yesterday), or when new tapes are loaded, the tape selection mechanism sometimes picks a different tape for processing. So then the old tape goes into a 'waiting to run' state, such as we sometimes see on our BOINC Managers - except you can't see it on the SSP. Those are your ghosts: they are very common, even if you haven't noticed them before. And they're nothing to worry about - eventually the tape selection process will pick them out again and give them another go.


Thanks, Richard. I had truly not noticed this before, even though I would usually count the splitters shown on the bar graphs and match it with the number running. I might have missed a couple at one time or another because the number on the tape being processed was never explicit and I had to guess, based on the width of the darker green areas (remember when we had the cases where several got stuck on one tape?), but what I meant was that I could not remember seeing more tapes being processed than splitters running.

Thanks for the explanation.

Though I'm not quite ready to jump ship yet, any other Space/SciFi/Alien projects that more or less provide 24-7 work with an interactive project staff? (and Linux GPU support)


What do you mean with "interactive project staff" ?

Most BOINC based projects do not have enough staff or funding to give 24/7/356.25 support or coverage. Many are even worse than SETI at communicating or supplying data :-( As for Linux support for GPUs- well you have to look at the tags to see if they do, and then good luck, because some are better than others....

Hmmm.....
Was hoping to see some splitter action by now.
The problem must be proving to be a tougher nut to crack than hoped for.
I am sure they are working on it.

Meowsigh.

The splitter problem is turning out to be at least as much fun as the Tuesday outrage.

Anybody from Beta remember how long it took them to get the splitters working there after the server code update?

I think it took 2 weeks or so to fix the Beta splitters.

Edit: Exactly: From 20 Dec 2017, 1:30:42 UTC, and until 10 Jan 2018, 17:48:33 UTC

Well, that's certainly encouraging news.

Present lack of work- most likely the server update that worked on Beta (after it was fixed for breaking the splitters there), broke the splitters here.


if that's the case, they know the fix. (having done the same thing on Beta...) Let's hope it doesn't take them as long to fix production as it did Beta, though...

It appears the decline has steepened even more. I added the first 1060 around mid-Oct, the second around mid-Dec. It did a moonshot to above 100k, then the Arecibo tasks stopped. The best I can determine, it Might settle out around 70k...maybe. That depends IF we ever get tasks again.
