Matthew A was able to get the database stabilized, and it looks like we are running smoothly again.

It appears that the SQL query threads were not timing out properly, and were jamming the CPU with worthless tasks. This has been remedied.

While we expect to run smoothly for now, other database issues may pop up - the FreeBSD operating system that is currently running Milkyway@home is old, and notoriously incompatible with modern SQL. Of course, we hope to not have more problems.

We are ordering a new server, and should transition over to it in mid-December. We'll post the specs once we finalize them, and keep you posted.

Cheers,
Matthew Newby

The n-body tasks vary in actual run length. The guess time is much larger and not very acurate. Let it run a bit and calculate out the time yourself to see if you want to run it. Lately I have had two that wanted to run over 80 hours each, I only ran one and aborted the other.

Also next time go to the "Numbers Crunching" section and do a little searching. You don't need to post this multiple times.
