Does anyone know when the current "maintenance" will be done?

I have a WU that needs to be sent before I go out of town for 2 weeks!

Gary, I have one possible

Gary,

I have one possible answer to the huge long term debts that were discussed in this thread over the past couple of days. I have the same problem on one of my machines and I had a problem with the system date about a week or so ago. I fat fingered it and didn't notice that I entered 2017 for the year instead of 2007 when I 'corrected' the date. I noticed the problem when I checked the graphs in Boinc manager and reset the year to the proper value. My graphs are still messed up and, when I checked the long term debts on my projects on that machine, they total +/- 400 million-ish. (Do the math and that works out to about 12 years in seconds, so maybe I entered 2019 - can't remember now.) I don't have access to that machine right now (checked it remotely) but I'll certainly be clearing that up the next time I get on it.

Moral of the story: Before you mess around with your system date, shut down Boinc first and leave it down until you are sure that the date is correct.

Thanks for that. Yes, a

Thanks for that.

Yes, a big date adjustment like that while BOINC is running is likely to trash the debt system. Shutting down BOINC first is a very good idea.

Cheers,
Gary.

Just an FYI. I jumped on the BOINC forum and posted there as well. Personally, I'd consider this a rather large error of ommission so I recommended that either a debt reset option be added, or that a configurable debt 'cap' be added to limit the damage when this occurs. I consider it undesirable to force users to have to edit configuration files manually, especially when you are dealing with a user base as large as this one. This is definitely one case where waiting for BOINC to sort it out, while it is an option, is probably not the optimal solution. ;-)

So it seems the problem

So it seems the problem persists. The last post is quite old, so i would like to hear if there is any news on this problem? I guess we all have the same problem with E@H - i have problems sending and receiving WUs. The 'Server status'-page is still down, though i recall it was up and running around a week ago. Didn't it run properly or did it crash?

It is switched off to reduce server load!

So will it never get back

So will it never get back online? Too bad, i really liked that page a lot. I got a feeling that we were getting somewhere. So is it only temporarily or permanent?

No, it´s not permanent donwn, but not every enquiery for fresh data become immediately answered by the server, as there are problems since more than a week. Try over and over, you will get data. BOINC will do this for you automaticaly. - Look at the Message board of your BOINC. - Up to now, I got allways new data at the right time for continuesly crunching. ( 1 file takes about 3.25h to become crunched at my host.)
There is also a problem with low crunching speed of the validators. As a meanvalue of the last 8 days, I get only 50% of the reported files validated. So your list of pending files will increase all time. Up to now, I have no indication that any reported file gone lost.
This is my personal experience.

We'll definitely put it back online once the database problems have been solved.
