Message 72352 - Posted: 30 Mar 2022, 16:34:11 UTC - in response to Message 72265.  

Does anyone know when we will begin getting validations? All I see is "when it gets caught up" and "it is 9-10 days behind". ??? BK

When Tom buys some decent disks.... They're still using mechanical drives! With 1000s of people accessing them at once!

The disks are most likely "rock solid" IDEs !!

ROFL! I just banned rotary disks from doing Boinc on my desktops. To have a mechanical device serving thousands of people is preposterous. The heads can't be in two places at once.

@San-Fernando-Valley
Apologies for delay in replying, but I missed your message in the welter of messages about how cr*p BOINC is and how the universe is a better place with SSDs :-)
But what do you mean by "BOINC log"? Do you mean the "Event log"? It gets cleared when you exit BOINC.
I can't find any other log anywhere.

I did a "Reset", but nothing has changed.
Yup, I did mean the Event Log... I'd forgotten the default "start the log from scratch on each client restart" behaviour as I'm a Linux user and have tweaked the way the client is started so that it appends to the log. But even before I did that, I typically had a log that was months long because I rarely needed to restart the client...

Sorry about that -- I shouldn't be asking people to look for information they may have no chance of finding!

Thanks for the evidence that a reset still doesn't help... Unless things change dramatically over the next few days, I guess that means we're stuck with the orphans showing up as such...

Cheers - Al.

P.S. I've stayed out of the "Just buy better storage" debate, as I don't know who actually owns the kit (if it doesn't belong to the project they may have little or no [immediate] control over upgrading it), I don't know whether the RAID controller in use can handle SSD throughput rates, and I don't know anything about the "politics" of RPI regarding project management and resources!

[Edit - spelling mistake!]

I use Windows and the log only shows the last x 100 entries, restart or not. Mind you I've never looked in the text file, just the log viewable from the Boinc Manager.

I don't know what an RPI is, but I assume it's something to do with accepting funds? We know they can take charity, there's a donation page which he's promised to make more prominent. And he's said I think 10 grand to get a RAID of SSDs (seems very expensive to me). But it's not Tom's decision, someone further up.

[Edit - spelling mistake!]
It's ok, we'll forgive you, you don't have to apologise.

RPI is the university that hosts this program. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rensselaer_Polytechnic_Institute

The system did manage to go from over 4 million waiting for validation to 3088742 now, so I'll take that as a good sign of things moving in the right direction.



Now it is down to 2554179 Nice to see a positive sign of things getting better.

Thank you to Kiska for sharing the graphs that show different aspects of the status of the system too!

waiting to validate is down to 1596413 and RESENDS are finally going out in a big way. All my currently running WUs are resends.

Thanks Tom!

Oh, OK.
Well, that is also what the project status page says.
No need for a very dark unreadable "picture"?
Or am I missing something?

Have you all a nice day ...

It's not dark or unreadable to me, check your monitor. Thanks to Kiska for providing what most of us can read :-)
