Validator crapped out again.

My GPU-fan went eerily silent a couple of minutes ago. I guess all those Collatz crunchers returned the favour with Collatz down and sucked our well dry as well :-)

Argh!

The servers have little or no work to distribute, so we are in for another dry period until the servers are kicked.

It looks like the validator has a backlog of over 20K results to clear (again)

Oh woe is me, with Collatz offline as well


Just attached to DNETC as well for my HD4850 and the old AGP HD3850 so when Milkyway caches (24 WUS) are empty, then DNETC will crunch until MW returns.

On the older ATI cards the output looks like it is less productive, in output terms, than MW (lower RACs per GPU).

Go away, I was asleep

I also keep an account on DNETC, just in case. I downloaded 50 5xxx units to keep my GPU busy.

And its going to be out of work for awhile ..

http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/server_status.php

Its got nothing to send..and with a growing number of people getting their WUs done that have yet passed validation..I imagine its going to be another mad rush when the server does get up again..

I got to say though..this is getting silly for server downtime. I think they need a new guy behind the scenes for the server or something..

I believe that the guy is good enough but the hardware lacks the capability to catch up. Maybe it is time to renew or upgrade the server.

Look at bright side... just think how boring the graphs would be without the occasional high hills and deep, wide valleys.
Then again, boring isn't so bad.

More and more people use faster GPU's, which results in more wu's to be processed. Maybe the next part, which lacks the required capabilities is the network (collatz!!!).
This is a good example how evolution works!
@ all responsible stuff: please think about a solution for at least 6 months or so!

If it is possible from the science, much longer WU could be a solution. It will reduce traffic and server load. Of course then a checkpoint-system must be implemented in the application code.

Maybe the constraint is not the server, but the brain...

Perhaps the server works now

Hello,

I must admit not usually being a complainer but having to baby sit this project through server downtime is a bit of a pain now
I would really like to just hook the system up leave it crunching and forget about it but now find myself having to check up on it way to often

more workunits per core has been discussed and ruled out the above suggestion of longer work units would cure two problems 1. less down time for our machines 2. less spin down down and spin up between work units
this idea also doesnt seem to be getting any attention for some reason

collatz doesnt quite give the same credit but seems online more often than here and dnetc seems to give more credit per gpu work done using longer work units

I'm stuck here just now because neither of the two projects above will work with my 3 ATI cards in crossfire but the longer this fiasco with the server carries on the more likely I am to set up another couple of machines splitting the cards so they each can work on the projects above

hopefully the hardware IT dept will announce on here there next set of upgrades soon so we can have a more consistant flow of work

best regards
Ian
