Merday Morn (Jun 11 2007)

Crazy weekend. On Friday we were having problems with our download file server which ultimately a reboot fixed. That sort of thing hasn't happened in a while. We'll keep a close eye on it.

But then later on the BOINC database started thrashing. Simple queries were taking way too long, and other queries were traffic jammed behind those, etc. Several things were tried remotely, including a "reorg" (i.e. compression) of the result/workunit tables to no avail.

It wasn't until this morning when me, Jeff, Eric and Bob met and discussed the game plan. Basically, during database issues in the recent past certain MySQL configuration changes were made. We reverted some of these changes today as well as compressed/backed up the entire database and that seemed to help. We're still catching up as I type this missive.

Meanwhile among other things recently donated by Sun Microsystems we got a "parts machine" which we could cannibalize to help upgrade jocelyn (our replica database server). The hope is that jocelyn will become so powerful as to make it worth being the master database again. We plugged in a daughter board adding two CPUs but only then discovered the CPUs were different speeds than the original so it wouldn't boot. Fair enough. We took the daughter board out, and now jocelyn doesn't want to see the network anymore. Jeff and I are messing around with that now. The project doesn't need the replica to run, but it's better to have it, and we're once again finding ourselves frustrated with a random and pointless problem. Guess I won't be working on the splitter today.

Huh (Jun 08 2007)

Around 10am this morning gowron's nfsds were all in disk wait. Not sure why, but that pretty much hosed the whole download part of our system. Jeff's been fighting with it all day. I've been at home, chiming in with my two cents every so often. Hopefully he'll get beyond it before too long.

Orphans and Phantoms.... (09.06.2007)

I've (this morning) changed some server settings which should help to get rid of orphans and phantom results.

Please let me know if you are still seeing these.

Appart for Anandtech's stats, it shows how much more/less than Anandtech.
Also shows based on Average Work Done how many days for Anandtech to overtake the team, or be overtaken by a team behind
