Couple of months ago, an outage was considered to be an exception which was happening maximum 2 times in a month. Nowadays, crunchers accept the outage, which happens at least 2 times per week, as a part of the project.

I did say this, and will be saying that, we need better servers. If crunchers allocate their resources to buy hardware for the science, the project staff is obligated to provide a service that meets the crunchers behavior.

The existence of backup projects doesn't soften the excuse of sequential outages. I don't know whether the cause is server load, validation or feeder but apparently something is wrong in the server side.

Still, milkyway@home is my primary project but when the opencl becomes an industry platform, which has been becoming really fast, i wonder how many people will stick to this project. At least the Prime Grid did a wonderful job implementing it into their application.

Well, this thread answered my question. I was wondering if I was having BOINC issues. Just got my 6950 unlocked to 6970 specs and moved my 4890 to my secondary rig and was hoping to punch out some work units, but I guess that isn't going to happen for awhile.

Clearly there is no Milkyway GPU work coming through, despite the server status claiming plenty of new work is ready to send.

It looks like other people have a correct surmise that it's only nBody work.

Some did bail quite a while ago. I only run MW now when DNETC is down which is the opposite of what I would prefer. Shame, MW doesn't even support the automatic backup capability of BOINC.

This used to be one of the premier projects for reliability but things have changed. Very unfortunate!

Don't know what you mean about MW not supporting the automatic backup capability of BOINC. I have Collatz and DNETC at 0% resource share and BOINC pretty seamlessly swaps over to one of those when MW has no work.

I run MW pretty much 100% GPU resource allocation and have no problems..other than MW doesn't have any GPU work right now.

I've PM'd Matt about the work outrage, maybe I'll also PM Travis.

He was talking about having a significant amount of workunits CACHED to help lessen the burden of the very frequent outages.

A 20 minute cache is not enough for this project.

Personally, Ive about had it with this nonsense.
They don't bother to communicate with us what they are doing most of the time.
They don't seem to be willing or able to solve a recurring problem.
Arrogance for the first ,incompetence for the latter.
I would have fired the lot of them by now if they were any of my employees!
Think I'll take my 40 cores and 19 GPU's and go play somewhere I'm respected just a little more.

In fact I'm already gone,lol!

Well we were getting double credits there for a couple of days...maybe this is pay back! :)

[edit]PM'd Travis as well.

I think we need more patience. The 4WU's ran, and where uploaded again.
But no new ones, but I keep looking.

I started up some new GPU runs, that should get things going again.

My GPU work started to flow earllier and I returned the first result an hour or so. So, back to normal (I hope).

I noticed the same John, but I am now on the high power rate (my high power consuming rigs run nights). So I start to finish the lot.

But I see all de_separation_11, 13, 14, 15 and 16 (run 1.26) not the 17 (run 2.12), so I guess it is not totally "normal" just jet.

Happy crunching.

    Thanks, I gave it a kick and took some old runs down. It looks like things are calming down... I'll keep an eye on it today.
