Hello everyone,

Here is a quick update on what has been done with the server:
- Special badges have been given to Volunteers who had them
- Cancelled all of the "Ready to send" separation workunits

Currently working on:
- fixing slowness of the server
- PHP warnings on result page
- testing new binary with orbit fitting


Best,
Kevin

Hello everyone,

I will be running some server maintenance on 22 Jan 2024 at 15:00:00 UTC.
The server should only be down for 2-3 hours. I will post an update when the server is backup.

Updated on the server:
- Server should be running faster now

Working on:
- WU waiting for assimilation and validation
- Reducing the number of "Ready to send" WU
- PHP warnings on result page
- testing new binary with orbit fitting

Best,
Kevin

Hello everyone,

Update
I've been working on trying to fix some of the recent issues with the server. Here is what I have done to solve them:
- Cancelled all Separation WUs that were still creating tasks such that now the "Ready to send" tasks match (hopefully this is the last of the Separation WU's that were still creating tasks)
- Set all validated tasks that had 0 credits to "inconclusive" and set the WU to need validation so that tasks are made to validate the 0 credit task and assign them credit after validation
- Cancelled all with unsent tasks to lower the "Ready to send" number (I will be keeping the WU generator off until the numbers are lower so that this number continues to go down and tasks for validation get sent out)

I will keep watching the numbers and some of my own inconclusive tasks in order to make sure that these fixes worked. Please let me know if these fixes are working or not working for you.

Announcement
- Having done this, I will be running another server maintenance on 29 Jan 2024 at 15:00:00 UTC. Again, this should only be for a few hours at the maximum.

Question
- I do not see the PHP warnings anymore on the result pages. Is this still an issue that people are seeing? Please let me know if it is so I can take a look at it.

Working on
- finishing testing on new binary with orbit fitting
- fixing the cause for runaway task generation

Thank you,
Kevin

Hello everyone,

I am working on getting a new version of our code up on the server.
This new version will allow us to fit orbits on top of the other parameters we have already been fitting.
There seems to be a slight issue right now with downloading the new version and I am working on fixing the issue.

Thank you,
Kevin

Update
Download error has been fixed but the error with the new version persists.
Working to get the new version working and getting new runs that have orbit fitting up on the server.
