We upgraded the server software - if WU distribution, reporting, etc. is confirmed to work correctly, on Monday we will update the web pages.

As a first consequence of the upgrade, you should be receiving "notifications" in your BOINC clients.

I can upload, report, and download tasks, but it seems to me that the stats aren't updating correctly (my overall RAC, and my hosts' RAC is dropping)
And I'm getting this "Server can't open database" message too.

I'm investigating, but the server message seems a transient overload error (hopefully).

Minor changes in credit scheme, no problem. However I am missing the column "granted credit" as it would be difficult to expain to new member time bonus system.

Scott: probably it was a short offline interval, I was fixing stuff at that time

Nenym: quite possible. which page are you referring to?

Ftpd: there are few LONG WUs right now (should not be related to the server change, I'll check). But normal WUs should download correctly.

That's not a host, that's a user (no access except by the user in question). Try hostid=31329.

You are right, Richard, sorry. The "claimed credit" column - not granted as I have written before - is missing in both pages (as in any server, upgrated to CreditNew), it's credit scheme doesn't use benchmark anymore.

There are no long wus currently. I'm worried about the short not going out.

Concerning the credits, ill post a short explanation as soon as the thing clears up.

the last wu from before the upgrade finished and uploaded, so that is 2 successful uploads post upgrade

several hours of requesting wu and getting none then just now i got 2 "long run" wu

they say long run in the name, but the remining time shows as 1:56:30 on both wu


that would be amazing for my gtx260-216

could just be that the "correction factor" has been reset???

we shall see

BTW, NATHAN_FA5 was 32,093.45 credits before the upgrade, now it's 31,500.
The others have been rounded up, so TONI_SH2MS3 is changed from 37,485.89 to 37,500, and GIANNI_KKFREE5 is changed from 67,498.11 to 67,500.
This is not a significant change, but much easier for humans to read, and spot if a workunit didn't finished in time to receive the +50% or the +25% bonus.
Based on these numbers, NATHAN_FA5 should worth 32,100 credits.

I will post explanations on credits later. In general, they have been rounded, but that's mostly for cosmetic reasons. If you prefer we can go back (in the long run) to the small coins.

Fast return bonuses are exactly like before, so FA5 (as an example) are worth
31500 - within 1d
26250 - within 2d
21000 - later than 2d

Please be patient with trivial credit changes because there is people not receiving WUs, which needs to be debugged fast.

I've had to reset the project to get a WU. Without the reset, I got the "no tasks available" messages for both short and long WU. So it's worth a try to reset the project if you still don't get any WUs

We just fixed the server - hopefully. An 'update' should suffice.

I'm locking this thread - please post follow-ups in the "server and website".
