Postman,
Are you able to upload any of your completed workunits?  That I can't download anything right now is not a surprise.  That I can't upload is worrying.

As of right now, I have been able to upload 4 WU's out of 30+. I would bet there is a massive influx of transfers since they have been down almost a week. I still have about 3.5 days of work before I will begin to panic. If I run out I will just fire up seti driver again.

While the project is up and functioning normally, the database and web servers are overloaded. Because of this you may have noticed difficulty in transferring work and loading certain web pages. We're tuning these servers and trying to find the bottlenecks now.

SETI needs way more fiber in their diet (or I do).  In the last 3 days I have successfully downloaded 0 WU and uploaded 1 completed WU.  Talk about backed up!

Can anyone say FUBAR?

In other news I did get 1 PC 100% uploaded but have seen no updated results. It is going to run out of work in 64 hours.

We discoverd that the sheer number of files in the upload directory was killing NFS performance for the file_upload_handler. We started with a new empty upload directory and the file_upload_handler performed much better. The rate of connection drops on the upload server dropped to zero (most of the time). Of course we need to get all those older results back into play somehow. We are preparing our new SnapAppliance 18000 to host the database. We need to fit it into the power load in our already fairly full data closet, configure the DB volume, run some tests, and then copy over the DB files. We will post the progress as we go.

Woohoo!  All WUs are go.  Houston, we have traction!

Yes.  It gave me 2 WUs last night and 2 more this morning.  I only have a 2 day cache set.  Not good for recent events :(

PS. TX for info on threads - I had not made the BOINC/notBOINC connection.

Maybe a helpful admin can be persuaded to rename this the BOINC SETI Thread.

I'm giving up on BOINC until it does something that is as good as or better than "classic"

By the time the hardware behind SETIBOINC is updated to match the load - the load is going to be gone back to SETClassic.

Could anyone post a guide to using Boinc, what we need to download, if there's any useful addons (like setidrive, etc)like we used to have with Seti classic?

Thanks

Right now Boinc is too messed up to even consider moving to. I would wait and continue processing with "classic" until they get the bugs worked out some more. ::)
