Over the past 9 hours, the load on the disk has increased manyfold. This resulted in a decrease of the generated WUs and the problem with the validation. Please, refrain from viewing your results if possible. Viewing the results database leads to a heavy disk load. Thank you for understanding!

Update Showing the results is temporarily disabled.

Update 2 Things started getting back to normal immediately after showing the results was disabled.

Update 3 Showing the results is enabled again. However, this feature will be disabled in case of high disk load.

Is there any way to limit it or automatically disable it during WU generation?

WU generation depends on disk I/O operations less than WU validation. Disabling showing the results during WU generation will not help much, because the number of WUs waiting for validation will keep growing anyway.

I hope that most users view their results during the weekend, so in Monday it would be safe to enable this feature again without hanging the server.

I'm getting very little CPU work. Most of my machines are sitting idle. The GPUs are staying busy.

EDIT: I just had a GPU run out of work also :(

I upgraded the virtual server by doubling the number of CPU cores. Let's see if this help. Don't expect much, however, cause the storage is still the same.

That has been a tremendous help. The CPUs and GPUs have been happy all day long!

Thank you

Please turn OFF the task viewing. Very difficult to get work and/or communicate with the project to upload/download WU!

Getting errors trying to upload/download work :-(

Looks like Seti.Germany and Seti.USA are tearing your server to shreds as they compete for number 1 spot.

I'd suggest banning both teams and their members so everyone else can upload/download our work in peace :-)

So that's S.U in favour of the motion, there being no objection from S.G I declare the motion carried.
If you could block them at your earliest convenience Vlad that would be much appreciated.

No objection while SG is on top. ;)

(There's not enough work left for OcUK to catch up again ;p)
