Guess only my machines were having issues. I wasn't at work to try there and jumped the gun.

My apologies

Collatz went 'vapor' about 8AM PDT this morning. Possibly local power outage or ISP problem. At a guess, he'll not be able to resolve matters until this afternoon when he gets back on site.

Seems Collatz had a planned outage:

The project will be down this morning starting around 9 or 9:30am while a new electrical circuit is added but should be back up within a few hours.

and it took longer than expected:

Sorry it took longer than expected. Everything should be back up and running now.

Milkyway@home appears to be down and the message boards are unreachable since 21:15 GMT (British Summertime).
I will run out of work in 3 minutes :-(

That can't be. You must be all mistaken. It must be a figment of your imagination, since I just read over at Seti that someone said it's ever so rarely down.

1. Why does SETI have reliability issues whereas other projects like Milkyway are rarely down. Is it equipment issue or a personnel(s) issue?


Downforeveryoneorjustme reports it as down. It must be mistaken as well.

Message 40465 - Posted: 29 Sep 2011, 23:20:23 UTC - in response to Message 40457.  

Sort of a combination of things -- some of the SETI advocates define 'down' a bit differently than a number of users. First off, SETI has a relatively extended weekly maintenance run (2 to 4 hours) during mid day on Tuesdays (mid day for the majority of users who are US). So that maintenance run is pretty obvious. Some SETI partisans don't define a 'planned maintenance run' as down time (I do). Further, SETI tends to run close to the edge in terms of upload/download bandwidth. That means the in and around outages (planned or otherwise), SETI is (for end users) pretty much in 'downtime' as it can be essentially inaccessible. Also, with the very large user population, problems at SETI (planned or not) get NOTICED big time. On the plus side, SETI has very large queues (especially on its CPU side) so outages often don't result in users lacking work to process.

Now this compares to Milkyway, a project with no planned weekly maintenance outage cycle, but with periodic outages (like at this moment). Also MW has a smaller user base, so outages don't get noticed by the general BOINC user base as much. On the other hand, MW provides VERY short queues (we're talking less than an hour, perhaps less than a half hour) for supported GPU processors. That means, virtually ANY outage at MW results in out of work conditions for users.

For GPU clients, pretty much the 'gold standard' is Collatz - not only does it support a broad range of GPU's (ATI and CUDA without requiring double precision GPU's), but also it supports reasonably long running queues, AND it is most reliable GPU project out there and has been for years.



That can't be. You must be all mistaken. It must be a figment of your imagination, since I just read over at Seti that someone said it's ever so rarely down.

Spinhenge announcement:
********************
When the 04_core_shell_nanoparticles series is finished, we will pause Spinhenge@home for about three month. We plan to upgrade the server hardware, the client and the server hardware. We also need some time to evaluate the results of the last two series (the *fe30_map_*_* and the core_shell_nanoparticles). Updates about our progress will be post on the news and our forum.
We thank all users for the great support!!!
Kind regards, Christian Schröder, Thomas Hilbig

*********************

This announcement was posted on their home page, prior to them completing the current series.

Does anybody know what's happening with uFluids? They've been offline for more than a week now.


Seems that they're back online...

Well, that's interesting. BOINCStats logged me off and I can't log back in anymore, not even with the temporary password that I requested through email. Then again, now it looks like the whole of BOINCStats went down. Oh well. I'll have to check my birthday date later then, as it gave me congrats through email 24 hours too late.

Edit: having typed all that, it's back and I can log in again. Ish.

CPDN main project

Jonathan says:

One of the project servers has gone offline with a major disk problem.

This will primarily affect those people processing the regional model (WeatherAtHome; Hadam3p), because certain upload files are set to be received by the server Uploader1.atm.ox.ac.uk.

There may also be problems accessing file downloads from this server

The earliest fix date for this is tomorrow (4 October 2011) afternoon (GMT), assuming that the replacement disk arrives on time.

Please accept our apologies for the disruption.

Jonathan Miller
