I see they just loaded an Arecibo file, that should help the servers out for a bit.

I hope so.

There's been a big spike in AP WU-awaiting-deletion, along with a steady climb in MB WU-awaiting-deletion, and the splitter output has fallen off a cliff. It had been steadily declining from around 55/s down to around 40/s, then it plummeted to 10/s as those other backlogs hit their current peaks.
And the result being the Ready-to-send buffer after hitting a peak of about 160k & then declining slightly has started falling like stone.

The RTS continues to slowly clim (228k at the moment), but the results waiting for db purge is at 4.8 million and also climbing.
I'm betting we get a long outrage on Tuesday to clean all this up.

Just as I start to think I'm panicing all alone as the RTS starts to fall, they load another Aricebo file (31au18ab). Many thanks to the Seti person (people) taking time out of their holiday weekend to load more data.

. . If we are chewing on mainly/only Blc11 WUs this is going to be a very dry outrage. With about half of them still being noise bombs, our caches won't last long ...

Hopefully we finish the blc11 WUs and start getting some from the remnants of the previous data files still left before the outage.

Hmmm,
Even My 750Ti runs them in under 9 minutes using the CUDA App, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=6945809274
A little under 4 minutes for a 1060 in MacOS, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=6946013261
A 1080Ti on a Mac will do it in less than 2 minutes, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=6946353300
Arecibo VLARs have been tamed...

For those of you wondering where the BOINC forums went, they're now on https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_index.php, while a lot of other links from the BOINC main page are broken. Someone is moving things around and hoping no one notices.

We still haven't recovered from the last clean-up here. Colum widths for the forum topic pages and topics/threads are still all mucked up.

Getting "Project has no tasks available" messages, and the graphs are showing a spike in the Ready-to-send buffer, but no increase in splitter output.
Hopefully it's just the random recurring glitch again.

Hmm, just picked up a WU with a longer than usual estimated run time, and a 3 month deadline.
If it's not a noise bomb, it will be interesting to see how long it does take to crunch, and what the payout is.

I was notified that it's about to be moved to https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_index.php (not there yet) to coincide with where the forums are on most all BOINC projects.

At one point this morning I got redirected to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/dev/forum_index.php (not making that a link because there's nothing there). It's certainly going walkabout.

Same here. 'no tasks available' even though the SPP shows work in RTS.

Allready running empty. Rescheduled the few remaning CPU WU to GPU but that will last for few minutes only since most of them are BLC11 noise bombs.

Following murphy's law, IIRC today's is a holiday in the US, labor day, somebody could confirm or not that, please.

<edit> As expected after 15 min al WU gone. Finishing the last 8 CPU WU and after that, the host will run dry.

With the new apps and the noise bombs the 100 cache limit is simply too small.

. . There may be some hope, this machine got a fair amount of work for the GPU but nothing for the CPU, so I repaid some WUs to the CPU for those I borrowed earlier. I will check the other machines soon.

. . Not much hope I'm afraid, the other machines are still getting nothing and one is dry, running the last CPU task as I type.

. . Someone needs to play kick the servers.
