And what's up with all the latest Arecibo tapes loaded from 2016. I'm sure we've seen these before. But a search of Richard's thread would prove so but his latest updates won't load because the hosting site won't load anymore. A shame.

Anybody want to guess the length of the outage tomorrow? Short or normal?

My guess is a relatively short one because of VLARs now going to Nvidea GPUs and the rebuilt data base. We can only hope.

Eric just posted
The experimental reorg that we did two weeks ago appears to have worked. Our speed is better, and our outage last week was down to about 3.5 hours.

Fingers crossed that things keep working out.

Maybe running back into our old problem of host has reached the limit of tasks in progress.

Apparently not. Just a sort hiccup it appears. Anybody want to guess the length of the outage tomorrow? Short or normal?

The curse of photobucket...

I'm keeping the database and charts updated, though it wasn't worth posting while we were going over old work. The 2016 recordings we did last month were all new work, and there are some big gaps in both 2016 and 2017 still - i think it's probably all new. I'll try and post a new set of charts at the end of the month.

Usually by using an over zealous antivirus in most cases.
Cheers.

With not much work returned, how has he gathered well over 9000 in progress on one PC ?

In fact no work returned at all.

The few that have responded to my PM's with this same problem have been the fault of the antivirus suite thinking that projects attached to BOINC are web based attacks so that tasks are deleted as soon as they arrive on the host hence the build up of tasks online, but they don't exist on the said PC (which is why we often tell people to exclude/ignore/white list the BOINC folders from their AV's as this can often be the result).

Cheers.

Message 1930492 - Posted: 17 Apr 2018, 11:35:42 UTC - in response to Message 1930484.  

In fact, modern anti-virus programs are much more aggressive about scanning incoming internet traffic. There's a fair bet that those WUs never even hit the user's hard disk - or if they did, they were in the AV's quarantine area, rather than BOINC's data directory.

Depending on the AV product, simply excluding BOINC's files from "scanning" is quite probably inadequate. You would need to adjust the internet 'shield' (or whatever) settings as well - whitelist the project source domains, perhaps.

I remember something about a 'bit'(something) AV prog that was blocking at the DNS level. Required white listing.
EDIT: Ahhh, BitDefender I think it was, I believe it kept changing DNS config.

Thanks for the update Richard and for clearing up my thinking the 2016 tapes were ones we had done before. Will look for your future post.

No hurry to start the outage since it will be a short one like last week.

I checked the site from work today, everything was still up and running. Just got home, everything is still up and running. I had to scroll thru the posts to see a dbase was tweaked a couple weeks back. Have to say I like the short and sweet outages. :-)

Yes, everything is running smoothly now.
My only gripe atm is this :

Run time CPU time Credit Application
913.50 902.64 447.46 AstroPulse v7 v7.10 (opencl_nvidia_100) windows_intelx86
18,403.52 18,136.26 395.58 AstroPulse v7 v7.03 (sse2) windows_x86_64

Hardly fair.

Without a link to the tasks cited, it is impossible to say why the difference. Most likely the amount of blanking was different between the tasks. The higher the blanking, the longer to compute and the higher the credit awarded.

No matter how the tasks are built, one that runs for over 5hrs should pay more than one that takes 15 minutes, in my opinion.
I'm sure there is a good reason why one was assigned to the CPU (SSE2) while the other was assigned to the GPU (opencl), but still.. !
On my 780Ti Classified all opencl Ap tasks run for approx. 900-1000 seconds.

In your, mine and allmost all opinion but not in the opinion of CreditScrew.

No there are not, is just the way the random distribution of work works.
