OK I let Dr. K. know about the downloads... it's early afternoon in Berkeley so he should be able to have a look at it (I hope.)

I never worry about the stuck downloads or no tasks available after an outage. Always chalk it up to normal congestion when all the hosts are vying for attention. I am working off a large cache so not in any danger of running out and can wait till the evening when things have died down to unset NNT and refill the caches. My greatest concern is reporting all the finished work. But that is going swell currently along with the uploads.

All aided and abetted by a noisy tape - BLC23_2bit_guppi_58405_85640_HIP85417 has chucked up a load of "crash and burn" tasks. Thankfully it appears to have split now, but the tasks are going to be around for a while :-(

I noticed that too. Predominate in the returned tasks. Just endless reams of noisy short tasks. Was probably the reason the tasks returned hit 150K an hour yesterday.

The main idea is there but it needs the proper syntax of course.

. . Sounds like a fair routine, but wouldn't I need a laptop with wifi so I could check the projects from the pub to avoid unnecessary travel to and fro :)

Teamviewer works very well on the cellular and avoid the need of the laptop or to leave the pub. :)

There ya go, but you'll have to set up an account at the pub as you'll likely be spending 1/2 your life down there, judging by recent times :-)


. . OH, so true ...

Greetings,

All finished WUs are uploaded and reported. Woohoo! :)

Have a great day! :)

Siran


. . What gets me is that all through the outage there were upload failures. After the outage the uploads are fine but lots and lots of download failures :(. Though it does seem to be rectified now ...

Dr. K. indicated that there was actually an issue with the campus networking... he's done a workaround so it seems to have resolved it. Whew. :^)

Interesting. When the issue first popped up I did a look at the campus network status page and didn't see anything related to our part of it. Just some Wi-Fi network issues and time card reporting issues.

8 hours since the outage, and the splitters are still struggling.
Glad that the uploads have been sorted out.

Just checked my log, and there were certainly download issues for a while there.

I have around 50 tasks in download backoff currently among my hosts.

Thank you, Mr. Kevvy! I didn't know you could set a project resource to zero. That would certainly make it easier when SETI is short on new units. I'll give it a try.

Some projects won't allow a 0% resource setting, but will allow a 1%, 0.1% or 0.01% setting which is almost as good as 0%. ;-)

Cheers.

Yep downloads are stalled.
just as I posted things got unstuck, whining often works, that is one of the basic laws of physics.

looking at the low Results out in the Field number and the growing RTS number I'm guessing we are still having a communications problem. It was stated earlier that this is a Berkley network issue, so I guess we need to wait this out. Is there anything on our end we can do? DNS entries?

People would have to examine their own Event Logs and make an informed choice based on what they see there.

DNS entries are only an informed choice if the Event Log contains entries like "Couldn't resolve host name".
