#1 Seti Server

Unread post by darkmast2 » Mon Mar 31, 2008 7:08 pm

Anyone having trouble uploading Seti units at the moment ?

I have some units completed and waiting to upload but the message in the Boinc client is

31/03/2008 19:03:58||Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
31/03/2008 19:03:59||Access to reference site succeeded - project servers may be temporarily down.

According to the Seti server status page their servers are all running fine apart from fix_missing_results which is disabled, but I don't think this would affect the uploading of results.

Edit: Ok now a lot of them are showing disabled/down but the upload/download server is still up.

Seems to be back up and running again. Guess it was just a short downtime.

The seti servers are down again :( I think I may need to increase the amount of work units I store or maybe start some other projects too.

Yeah they've been down all day.
I have about 30-40 w/u's to upload at the moment as well.
You could always do Rosetta or WCG :wink: :wink: :wink:

Last night the BOINC database server crashed - it's recovering now and the project should be up shortly.

Thanks for the information - I checked the seti site but it just says if the servers are up and down - doesn't give information on why or when they will be back up.

Message from Seti "The upload server has been down since yesterday. We are aware of and are working on the problem."

I reckon I've got about 300 seti results waiting to be uploaded. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait!

I haven't been able to upload units for 2-3 days now.

It's uploading now alright. I the last 2 hours I have added over 4000 to my Seti tally and my pending credit is over 34,000! 8) It'll be a bumper day for the Seti stats tomorrow!
There doesn't seem to be any work available for downloading though but no doubt that will come.

Most of my units have now uploaded but there are still some to go. Probably a busy upload queue with everyone handing them in.

3 days later and SETI is still a bit iffy. Worst of all it hasn't exported any stats in 4 days. When it does get at least 265K extra credits on to our score - much more if they leave it any longer. :?

Finally, SETI exported stats so the current overall Boinc tally is "94,715,897 Comprising 94,279,355 from the daily update + 436,542 since then"
:D 8)

Upload Server Issues

Our upload server is having disk problems. The whole project is down until this is fixed. It may be a day or two.

Thought I'd revive this old thread.

For a couple of weeks I've been having trouble downloading work for SETI. Occasionally I get 'no work available ' but more and more frequently I get WUs which download so slowly that, with the CUDA ones at least, I'm crunching them much faster than I'm downloading them.

I get a bunch: The first 2 start downloading but slowly [ <1kbps] then stop. Once they timeout manager then tackles the rest of the bunch with similar slow and partial success . If you have nothing better to do than monitor the situation and repeatedly hit the retry now button you can speed things up a bit but not that much.

Anyone else with the same problem & any advice? It's fair holding me/us back. I'm missing out on 10-20K per day for SETI because of this & so is TSBT. :(

There is probably not a lot you can do about it as the download servers are at their limit - seems to be a SETI tradition. I am having the same problem as sometimes it wont download SETI units or does so infrequently end even on CPU I can do them faster than they can send them sometimes. Earlier this year they talking about retiring Anakin and Vader, the two download servers , and using Georgem instead... they appear not to have done that yet... ;-)

Only way around it is to set a long cache for work units (say 5-10 days) and wait patiently for it the cache to build up to a decent level. Not sure this would work with GPUs processing the WUs.

You can also try configuring the internet connection to connect only once in a while rather than permanently this might give you some priority on the download queue.
