Message 7449 - Posted: 4 Dec 2008, 20:39:50 UTC

It's now been about 2 hours since new work was available. I posted this in a couple of other threads, didn't get a response, so I figured to post it 'fresh' here.

Perhaps, with the longer caches (about 6 hours compared to less than 2 hours for me), it will take folks a bit longer to notice than in the past.

Still, it is a bit of a surprise that no one else seems to have noticed/commented on this.

OK -- looks like 3rd message was the charm, work units are available again.

Perhaps it is being dealt with (guessing mode only in information outage) as the site was unavailable for 40 minutes and the servers still indicate that they are 'down for maintenance'.

Sorry about all that guys. Went snowboarding today, so of course while I'm away things have to crash. To make matters even more fun, halfway through getting things up and running, the RPI computer science network goes down for awhile :P

I think everything should be working smoothly again now. Assimilator is running happily and should be generating WUs for everyone.

I'm reminded of when Wang Laboratories' stock was going up and down...

Wang is up...

Looks like the assimilator needs a swift kick up the cpu!

I can confirm the same

No work available, and the server status shows the same has been going on since about 1.30 am UTC and it is now 08.30 am.

I hope Travis notices and gives something a kick. The work in progress count has fallen from about 30K to the current 20K inside the last 6 (or so) hours.

Nearly 4 hours later and still no new work available.

ATM the work in progress has dropped to 13,488, and the the WUs awaiting assimilation are now over 19K.

The servers certainly need to be kicked, or this may be a cunning plan to run the current crop of WUs down before splitting for new work?

Still still no work - I hope Travis didn't take a long weekend off snowboarding (rueful smile).

It wouldn't be quite so bad when this happens if the queues were a tad higher -- hint hint.

Today, of my 4 CPUs attached to this project, at least 3 of them have requested new WUs, and none have gotten any.

Right -- my guess is that Travis is away at the moment (workunits stopped being available late last night east coast time so I don't think folks expected a response before this morning anyway). The lad has a life and might be living it at the moment. This is, after all, a project in 'Alpha' status so bumps are to be expected.

I am sure that once Travis returns to the front we will see a reply and corrective action on his part. (I was kind of hoping to see something by now, but it is possible he is taking a long weekend).

Well, considering we just had a major ice storm in the northeast, you might want to cut them some slack.

Troy, NY isn't the greatest place in the world to drive around (or even walk) in when the streets/sidewalks are slicker than snot on a billiard ball! ;-)

If you slip and fall up around RPI, you could easily end up in the Hudson River before you come to a stop! :-D

Actually, it's kind of amazing they still have power. When we had last year's early season ice storm, parts of Troy were out of power for a week or more. Just north of the Capital District, they got one inch or more of ice (we got about 1/2 inch of ice). They've declared states of emergency in many of the counties north of Albany, and even had I-87 shut down for a while.
