I can see 1254 tasks available for Theory in the server status, although unusually Atlas has run out.

But my computer is requesting tasks and not getting those Theory ones.

Is something up?

Note: my computer is currently processing 10 CMS tasks which are erroring due to the server problems. Is that causing me to get limited in downloading more tasks?

Thanks, my computer will come back whenever they're ready. It can busy itself on other projects just now.

I just downloaded a native ATLAS.

Yip, server status now shows a small number of everything available except Sixtrack (which is unfortunate as all but one of machines can only run that, they can't do virtualbox as they're not powerful enough.

I've got 4 CMS tasks that have run for quite some time without failing, so I think they might have fixed everything :-)

That would be useful, if they ever get it really fixed. You never know.

Well the others were failing in between 10 and 40 minutes. These 4 have now been running for over an hour.

We had an outage of some IT services at CERN yesterday, so task submission for some applications stopped for a while. Back to normal today. Hopefully SixTrack users will submit a new batch soon too.

Thanks for your contributions and happy crunching!

I have three older computers and two phones that can only manage sixtrack, I hope they come back soon, I only get the odd one (perhaps an aborted task recycled?)

My decent computer is set to take any task, but it's only being given CMS, despite there being more of Atlas and Theory shown on your server status. Am I getting only CMS because a lot of others still have CMS switched off?

Most of my CMS are causing errors again. I'm assuming this is a CERN fault and not my doing. Please let me know if I can adjust anything at this end. Running latest Boinc and Virtualbox.

When will new sixtrack tasks become available?

Hi all,

I'm one of the main users of SixTrack.
I have a big campaign coming up, in the order of a few million jobs, to validate the field specifications of the non-linear corrector package in the upcoming high-luminosity upgrade of the LHC. These correctors are important, as they help pushing the performance of the machine to high levels.

So expect to see a large increase of the number of available jobs in the next fews - I just need to figure out the most stable way to submit from home (you know, teleworking... :-D).

Apologies for the wait, and thanks a lot for your support.

Happy crunching (soon),

Frederik
