From the front page about the NEW Milkyway V3

This new application should really improve server performance as it doesn't use search parameter files to send out new workunits, it will take the parameters from the command line instead. Additionally, it will report the fitness in stderr, which gets moved into the result's xml.
What this means is the server will be creating 1 less file for every workunit made (it currently creates 1 file), and receiving 1 less file for every result sent (it currently receives 1 file). This means sending workunits out and getting results in won't be hammering the filesystem nearly as hard. Right now the recent server crashes have been happening because the file deletion daemon just can't handle the sheer mass of WU files that are being generated, and it brings the server to a screeching halt which then crashes the other daemons.


Skye Hunter, you will find this NEW version will stop all these problems.


For the third time today.

Basically the server likes to wait for me to be asleep or at a meeting and then crash. When I'm watching it, it plays nice.

Sounds too familiar ;o). Today it was every time I was able to check it out, I found my system idle for several hours....
Well, I'll sit it out and hope for some improved stability ....

A watched server never crashes - unless of course, the person watching is your boss!
