Yeah, we need to get rid of the FreeBSD as server OS ASAP (blame the labstaff for that one).. hopefully after spring break we'll ge that all sovled...

BTW... I'm getting mad without my daily dosis of Milkyway ;)

Alternative: Get Dave to live in the lab, do reboots etc.

I have no idea who Dave is, but we need this guy within easy reach of the reboot button ;)

I have to say, this is the most exciting project I've every taken part in. Random server access, Krazy Kredit, good science, and a real community spirit. Long may it last :)

100% agreed. :-)

Now how can we bribe Dave to babysit the server all day?


PS. Hopefully the server will survive my post better than last time...

Mhh... well sound good to me !! Having Dave in the lab carying only about the servers is quite a good idea :D But now that it's spring break and he has to visit some of his relatives which some are in hospital... well just give him a break for a couple of days or so... But after that well... Dave make yourself comfortable at your new home :) aka the Lab !!

LOOOOL
;)

P.S. Hope you don't mind buddy ;)
we're all just a bit to excited about the progress that we made in the past weeks ;) Cheers my friend :)

It's making me quite angry that the server is going down so frequently as well. I've got this response from out labstaff who currently work over the break.

"I've restarted milkyway for now. Last time the milkyway server stopped
responding, it was because the BOINC cgi binary was stuck trying to acquire
a semaphore. I don't know what caused the semaphore not to be released in
the first place, I'll keep a close eye on it."

I'll check into the semaphore bug and see if we can get it resolved. However, i believe that with the new version of BOINC on the server this will be fixed. I'll also be keeping as close an eye on this as I can. And if need be, go back up to school and restart the server myself if it's not done in a timely manner next time this happen. My apologies for the outage again!

So your moving into the lab ? LOL ;)
Wrtie some mails, get the staff working on getting rid of the FreeBS(E) OS... it's not meant to be running a boinc server after all ;)

Yes, and I'm actaully pretty powerless in this situation since I'm away from school on break. When the server goes down it disables my access to it via SSH. So I rely entirely on labstaff who can sometimes be very slow in going. If it's down for more than 12 hours at a time I'll take a drive up to the school and reboot the server manually. It makes me mad that there are so many outages. I reported this one at 4am this morning and it didnt get fixed until what, like an hour ago? That's a 12 hour lag time. Unacceptable

*Ouch* I'm feeling with you. ;-)

I hope you (meaning the whole MW/labstaff team) will find a better solution soon.
Lovely greetings, Cori

I'm giving these folks the benefit of the doubt here.

I'm sure they're doing the best they can to get WU's to sent out.

I wouldn't compare the issues they're having anywhere near the ongoing, regular, consistant, never ending problems at SETI.

i'm really not quite sure what's up with the server. it hadn't crashed -- but for some reason all the directories where we were storing results (and generating new ones from) had lost all read privileges which really screwed up our assimilator. i'm going to send this off to labstaff to see what they think the problem could be.
