Message 1966337 - Posted: 21 Nov 2018, 3:35:09 UTC

If anyone tried to reach my site today and all you got was a blank page, I have gotten that problem taken care of, after looking at the error log and determining that I had a cache file screwing it up.

Time to start a new thread, because we are approaching 800 posts on #113.

And to Christen the new thread- now getting some "Couldn't connect to server" errors on Scheduler requests.

looks like we are going to need this new thread...sigh. I hope it is only a "normal" part of a recovery from a long OUTRAGE! and that sometime tonight all will be well. We still have a stuck file in the splitter, and a backlog of validating, so it isn't a good place to start a recovery.

Looking at the graphs, the servers have been back up for over an hour, but no work has been sent out in that time- the Ready-to-send buffer remains unchanged from it's initial after outage update.

Scheduler is now MIA. Haven't had a response from it for ages now.

The fun is being spread around today. MW, Einstein and Seti all have problems today and for the past week.

It accepted my completed WUs 20 minutes ago, but they aren't validated yet even if 2 of us have finished. I'm not bothering at this time to even ask for new WUs until the system looks good again.

edit: the splitters have been shutdown. not that they were doing any splitting, but it means someone is still working on the system.

It's going to be a cool day as my crunchers are all but out of work and I forgot to set any "zero" tasks before the outrage and my task count is very low. Oh well, it saves electricity.

One of my hosts just got 4 tasks. So the work is starting to flow again. They weren't resends.

Lucky you.
At least i'm getting responses from the Scheduler again, even if it is nothing but "Project has no tasks available". Much better than the previous repeating "Couldn't connect to server" messages.
Server status hasn't been updated for 3 hours for most values.

This is one ugly after outage recovery.

status just updated. not sure if it will continue to update as I am sure it is getting pounded with requests for WUs. It looks like AP splitting is happening. It is hard to tell if the gbt files are being split or not.

I think they need to shutdown & restart things all over again.
AP work is now being split, but it's all just going in to the Ready-to-send buffer- none of it is being sent out to be processed.

validation and purging are happening, but it will take a long time to work through all this. Looks like splitting is happening too. Very positive signs. Thanks to the person who stayed at work to "kick" the machine (or did it remotely).

I just got a couple of good hits.

It's only taken 4 hours since the end of the outage.
And the splitters haven't fired up to replace the work that has been sent out.

Still getting "Project has no tasks available" for me.

Edit- and then 2 minutes later- work gets allocated.
Now if only they would download- says Download active, but nothing is actually happening.

Just got about 60 tasks. Btw is the maximum amount of tasks that can be cached 200?

The size of your cache depends on the number of proecssors installed and "available for use by SETI".
A CPU will get you 100 tasks, regardless of the number of cores/threads it has.
Each GPU will get you another 100 tasks.

So your computer with a CPU and two GPUs will get 300 tasks.

Edit - This ignores any "penalty" for having an excessively high error rate which reduces the allocation if you have more than a certain number of such errors in a 24hr period.
