Message 10034 - Posted: 8 Feb 2009, 4:37:19 UTC - in response to Message 10032.  

Man, I dono why people decide to flame our forums while we're trying to get the server working again :P Talk about bad timing, lol.

In the BOINC industry it's called stress testing. Some stress more than others.

They do, dont they...

BOINC is like a university. The projects are fraternities. They all reside on Fraternity Row. It's easy to walk out of one frat and into another carrying lots of baggage. Sometimes it's rough on the pledges. :)

Say, I got post 9999 and you got post 10001. We both missed the magic number by 1. What a coincidence mysterious milky way kid.

What else could go wrong?

We lose all our credits.

and then it cascades into all other projects ultimately bringing down the internet, satellite radio, and Major League Baseball.

Back to stone tablets and a chizel. tink..tink..tink..

And the abacus. All credits will be calculated by the projects abacus.

I've actually been working on an abacus version of the application. Expect them to mail out for v0.19

Right on. I'll optimize it by taking off a few beads.

Nah, use grease to make em move faster.

Well I was thinking of using smooth glass instead of wooden beads. I promise not to drop them.


How about this for the next version of MW?

Oh man... that's exactly what I was putting together (except mine used glass). I should have patented it before you posted that pic.

The 2 or 3 topics got deleted, so the post doesn't exists now. Just hit search at the top, scroll down, no 10000.

Cant do floating-point arithmetic with glass beads, they always sink down the rods. I tried already.

Mine are hollow beads filled with hydrogen. No smoking allowed. Not recommended for overclocked systems.

BOINC must first be put in snooze mode. Do not leave tasks in memory.

Wow!

What a saga!

A good imagination gives great insights on Travis and Dave working behind the server scenes with several 20 lb lump hammers.

It looks like they are slowly beating the servers in to shape, and they are moving on to the delicate stuff for the 3 lb hammers.

Best of luck with the final straight(s) for both of you.

Looks like Travis and Dave are back under the bonnet (hood) as these servers are not running -

data-driven web pages milkyway....Running
upload/download server milkyway...Running
scheduler milkyway..................Running
feeder milkyway.............Not Running
transitioner milkyway.......Not Running
db_purge milkyway...........Not Running
milkyway_av milkyway........Not Running



This is the next stage using the delicate touch!

Many thanks for the sheer intensity of your problem addressing to both of you - Travis and Dave.

I tried it the other way, trying to dual boot XP on Vista - it kept blue screening. Hope the MW servers ain't blue screening...

Don't forget about food & sleep.

Yea, time for breakfast. And back to bed if you insist

OK -- this is getting rather tedious. I think I will for now approach the problem from the client side by suspending Milkyway processing, and setting it up for 'no new work'.

Assuming we don't encounter a third run of completed workunit kill off, I'll then 'unsuspend' the project to let existing work process and clean the queues.

Then, after a couple of days of normal operations, I'll let new work flow into the workstations for processing.
