Message 1376 - Posted: 23 Mar 2018, 18:31:33 UTC

Dear volunteers,
We have experienced problems on the server and we had to restore the last backup. Thanks to the new backup system, the loss was only of 18 hours. The last messages in the forums will be missing and may be there will be problems with the tasks of this last day. We hope everything returns to normal as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,
Jesús.

Message 1382 - Posted: 23 Mar 2018, 19:54:16 UTC - in response to Message 1376.

Came here looking why my points dropped. Stats show me at 315k but I now have 310k, where I was yesterday. :(

I lost a bit over 2,000 points. But I will get that back fairly quickly when I get some more work.

I'm down 4600 on my single computer. Its average credit rate per task is around 90, so that'll be approximately 50 affected tasks.

The task list for my i7 currently says I have 61 tasks pending validation. It's very likely that some of those were validated when the wingman was reported during the missing period, but those tasks should be revalidated when the wingmen time out and repair tasks are issued for the workunits.

The task list also shows that 43 tasks are in progress, but there are only 21 running, pending and ready to report tasks on my system. The BoincTasks history tab confirms that the 22 missing tasks were reported (times are UTC, clock synced with uk.pool.ntp.org), with 10 of the workunits having a wingman waiting for validation (3 reported after the missing time period, 7 reported before and now waiting for revalidation with repair task after my tasks time out):

In summary, I have:


  • 34 tasks which aren't in the restored database and can never be credited. Some of them may have been validated during the missing time period.
  • 7 tasks which definitely went through the validation process during the missing time period. These won't now be credited. The wingmen should be revalidated when the workunit issues repair tasks after these tasks time out.
  • 15 other tasks which were completed during the missing time period. Up to 12 of them could have been validated, but none of them will now be credited.
  • An unknown number of tasks (possibly >40) which were validated during the missing time period. These should be revalidated when the wingman times out and repair tasks are issued for the workunits.
