Message 1917224 - Posted: 5 Feb 2018, 22:34:56 UTC - in response to Message 1917221.  

Afternoon good folks, my main computer is without units, but my laptop is still working? Could this be the case? I believe I have seen all three computers run out over the years, but this is the first I have noticed some on and some off. Just seeing if it is me, or whatever.

Thanks,

Rod

Still nothing here in New Zealand... I have 2 computers dedicated to running data and they are getting bored waiting for work... LOL.
Seriously, what is happening??

Well, the network folks are still debugging and haven't isolated the problem. I've thought about requesting that they replace all the hardware between here and GBT.

It they acknowledge there is a problem 1/2 the battle is won. All the way between is a lot of fiber. Or did you just mean all the routers? ;)

You have done the obvious and told them the time is was last working and the time you first noticed it slow, just so they can look to see if they have anything logged somewhere between those times. Never can tell when the janitor knocked a cable out and put it back wrong ...

Or I suspect a network wide router configuration change pushed out at that time.

Matt is talking about the possibility of shipping disks (for Breakthrough purposes primarily), but the hardware necessary probably couldn't be in place for a couple months, assuming GBT will let us use additional space and power there.

Shipping disks? In that case I would like to place an order for a 1TB drive of data to crunch :)

Let us know if new hardware is needed Eric. We can certainly mount another donation drive as we proved there is earnest commitment to the project on the last one.


If we do have to go to shipping disk there will be lots of drives to buy, and an enclosure on each side of the country.

Yes, we understand. We did once before via the GPUUG hardware drive for Arecibo. We can do it again for GBT.

How about having SETI institute host? Do they have that capability?

Maybe Microsoft? Host it on one of their campus/towns. They probably move all that Green Bank data per minute...at least.

I have set "Seti@home Beta Test" as back up project. Still SETI.

Hello! Anyone like me that no new task available? I have nothing to work on!


Give it some time, work is being snatched up the second it is produced. The extended outage left a ton of machines dry, lots of catching up to do.

Probably several hours before any surplus is realized.


Thanks for reply, new tasks are available now :D

@Stephen "Heretic"

Hello,

thanke you for your answer's.
That was the missing information.
I just assumed that in the tool, in which one adds the projects, their weighting can also be changed.

Is this perhaps due to the loss of 'Net Neutrality'? This is the same government that thinks climate change / global warming means that 'We shouldn't get snow in the winter then!' Science isn't a priority for these idiots.

It's probably not a net neutrality issue, because this mostly (or entirely) goes over non-commercial (state or federally run) research networks.

Jeff's been converting some more old but unanalyzed files, and Matt is going to try and grab some more data tonight.

Related to Green Bank ... What did you find with the Slow splitting and deletion of GB data?
It appears the system has got back up to normal speeds.

. . Again, thanks for the update.

. . But this issue has raised a question in my mind, how are we (you) going to get the data from Parkes to Berkeley. I doubt we have access to your Network2 grid and a slow boat across the Pacific would not be very effective, unless they save the data up and ship a big box full across :)

Qantas flies to Los Angeles with big planes. Maybe some space can be found aboard for our disks, they are not too heavy.
