I noticed there are no updates for einstein@home on Boincstats on Sundays.

Why is that?

Business as usual.  Dunno

Business as usual.  Dunno which side of the connection the problem is on, but it's been going on as long as I've been in the project and clearly no one cares enough to fix it.

 

The stats pipeline from E@H to boincstats glitches about once a week.  Most of the time the next once every 12 hour update goes through and it's either not noticeable in retrospect at all (because the 2nd one fixed the days numbers) or is less noticeable on user stats because the 1st one came through and you're seeing half a days numbers instead of none.  Other times it affects both daily updates and there's a big 0.

Looking at the projects last 60 day graph shows a pattern I hadn't noticed before.  The update glitch appears to be happening every 8 days; and about a month ago appears to've switched from only dropping one daily update (or dropping #2 on day N, and #1 on N+1) to dropping both on the same day.

That tends to suggest it's something going on on the project side (since it doesn't knock out other projects); but once/8 days is an unusual period to be running some sort of scheduled task that is apparently interfering with the stats export.

Thanks for sharing your

Thanks for sharing your findings.

For the einstein@home admins:

At the moment Boincstats is more than 1,000,000 credits behind for my account. Please fix this, and I mean not just for me this weekend, but for everyone forever.
