I've noticed, but I'm saving them up for a Christmas bonus - I was going to wait until all the science bits were running smoothly, and the boys had a chance for a relaxing weekend off before we start deluging them with the cosmetic stuff.....

CPDN is having problems with automatic stats at the moment - they've only had one xml dump in the last six days, and that was done by hand. LHC hasn't exported since 14 July, and SETI missed a few a week ago.

The common factor is that all have updated their BOINC server code recently: I'm beginning to suspect a central (BOINC) cause, outside Einstein's immediate control.

Which is another reason for ignoring it until things settle down.

Thanks for the report. It's on the list of things to do for the developers.

Yep, it's been a pretty boring week for me stats wise, since ~75% of my resources go to CPDN and Einstein.

By golly, one of these days (for a very brief time) I'm going to look like I built my own science grid computer in my living room though! ;)

I just fixed that, it was a configuration error (actually a few of them). Einstein@home should be delivering stats to the statistic sites now, and should update them every 12h if all goes well.

I can see the files in the previously empty folder, but neither of the external sites I regularly visit (BOINCstats and BOINC Synergy) has updated.

Just found this post from Toby (KSWN) at LHC:

Looks like the names of the XML files changed (from team_id.gz to team.gz and same for host and user). I just updated my database to reflect this and it seems to be working again.


BOINC Central Command couldn't have been so .... - er, naive as to change the default file name in the updated server code, could they?

I just changed the filenames back to host_id.gz, user_id.gz and team_id.gz. Please see if this is now OK.

It'll take a while to show

It'll take a while to show up, because the external sites only poll the directory at well-behaved intervals - and even then, they take a while to parse and display the results.

I've got to go out, but in the meantime I'll leave this sig. image you can check - as I'm posting, it's showing the last dump as Sat 02 Aug 23:24:48

(and it's about 15K behind on my credit, too)

PS Possible problem - I can no longer see the directory listing of the ..\stats directory - I get "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access /stats/ on this server.". But I can get data using the filenames (old format, with _id) in your post.

If this works, it may also restore the cross-project stats listed for Einstein at the foot of our account pages, here and at other BOINC projects. At the moment they're stuck at Sat 2 Aug, too.

FWIW, BOINCStats has picked up the new xml's and there should be an EAH update today.

That is if the creek don't rise for Willy. :-)

Changed all the projects where I could find a difference (some were offline).
