New Server needed

Friday, 12 June 2009 10:00 AM

Although I've got some mirror offers the project still needs more resources, so I had to lower the work unit limit from 25 to 5 (!) until I can be sure that the server can handle a higher limit...

CPU usage

Thursday, 9 July 2009 10:00 AM

Some older work units have a higher cpu usage, up to several minutes. Newer ones use the CPU much less than a minute. So if you think that there is something going wrong, you can even abort these old tasks; our scheduler is able to generate new WUs with the same input data automatically.

It was unavoidable to shut down the server for some hours today, but now 11:33 am (CEST) everything is running as it should do.

Limit of 25 WUs

Friday, 10 July 2009 10:00 AM

The current limit of 25 WUs at the same time seems to work quite well. Next week I will be on holiday, and we will see how well it will work during this period of time.  I won't have internet during that week, but if there are problems feel free to contact me (mobile phone), then I will try to get online.  If the limit works well, I plan to increase it to 35 and so on.

Bugs

Friday, 24 July 2009 10:00 AM

I'm sending this message with a mobile phone so I can't write so much now. I noticed that there are several bugs which
appeared during my holidays (I'll be back at monday), but my internet connection here is so bad that I can't really fix anything.
So I ask you (project members) to create bug reports in our bug tracker about every new problem (but not 10 reports for each!), and you should mark it as a bug that appeared during my holidays (you can select that as a "type of bug").
Thank you, Tobias

Looks like Feehal gave all participants 11000 credits  (http://boincstats.com/stats/user_stats.php?pr=freehal&st=0&ti=92#4)just for being participants, in lieu of credits that would have been erned during a recent DDos attack ??

Look here for more details (http://web.freehal.org/node/500).
