Firewall died. I hope the replacement runs stable. Configuration is still somewhat under way.

Happy B-day once more! The server is not allowing WU uploads, for me at least.

"Unfortunately, Comcast gave the new replacement a new IP address which has been known to cause problems
with BOINC having cached the old address, so you may need to restart your BOINC client in order to report your results."

Thanks for the tip! Just uploaded about 50 WUs after restarting Boinc on my machines.

A moment of silence please...
September 4, 19:25 CST
After a long, difficult life, we had to say goodbye to an old faithful friend. Mr. Micron, also known as IPCOP_1 had a fatal breakdown this afternoon. After several efforts to revive him, we had to call it at 14:33 CST. We will miss him dearly as he had been part of the family for almost 15 years. He is survived by his three 3c905 NIC cards, VGA controller, and KVM cable. Let us pray that the new replacement will continue on in his tradition of service.


LOL

Database has been restored back on the original server. Hopefully that will take care of the connection issues problem.

Lesson learned for today - mysql runs for !@#$%^ on Windows, or at least in a multi-user environment where the connections are not all local or using named pipes

Lesson learned for today - mysql runs for !@#$%^ on Windows, ...

When I was in the systems engineering business none of us ever seriously considered proposing MS server products for any work to be done in a business environment.

Many consultants and some of my compadre's felt that specializing in MS products was a great career move because there would always be work for them.

I always tried to talk customers out of MS stuff because of the poor reliability.

One systems manager at a customer site told me that there were only two of them and some of their unix servers had only been restarted because of long term power outages ... when their manager had them move to MS the staff was up to 6, overworked and had constant problems ...

Yep. I should know better. The windows box had raid 5 and plenty of RAM and disk space but I should have known an Oracle/Sun product wouldn't run that well on Windows. That works about as well as running .NET apps on Linux using mono! Hmmm.... maybe if I ported the BOINC database code to SQL Server.... There just aren't enough hours in the day! For now, everything will continue to run on Debian so I can get back to figuring out how to copy 16MB of data to the texture memory on the CUDA cards needed for the v2.0 apps to be able to keep up with Gipsel's ATI version.

Personally I think that UCB missed a bet by not talking to Oracle. I think that if they had made the right pitch they could have gotten license to use Oracle which is far more reliable than MySQL. More importantly it has better coding support and triggers (though I understand that MySQL now has triggers even though BOINC does not use them).

Like WCG is "Powered by IBM" Oracle could have been convinced that this was a great way to advertise their DB engine ...

Missed opportunities...

May need to Kick the Validator again as I went back up about 350 Pending Wu's overnight, not sure if that's normal but don't think it is. Maybe a bigger shoe size needs to kick it ... ;)

Got home tonight and the firewall was locked up. Couldn't get in or out to the Internet. I might have to grab an old P4 1.5Ghz box that is no longer being used as work, add a few NICs, and turn it of those into a Linux firewall. I'm less than thrilled with the performance of the new one I purchased a couple weeks ago.

I restarted BOINC several times on all machines and even reset the project on 1 machine to no avail.
