The server status page hasn't been working for a couple of days now. When's it coming back online?

Hi Jovada,
The server is up and running but the database is growing to a very large size and as a result the server status queries are timing out. The are also a lot of queries exectuted by boinc itself which is contributing to this. We're looking into improving this at the moment.
Thanks,
Kevin

Note that that link is rather slow - wait a few minutes before assuming that it won't work. Also, shouldn't the Server status link on the home page go to that link?

The workunits are short enough that you might want to consider doing something similar to what Rosetta@Home has done: Include enough input files in each workunit to do a hundred of your size workunits. Modify the application to read a list of those small workunits, then run one after another of them to either the end of the list or a time limit for the whole workunit. This will, however, require modifying your validator to handle workunits where only some of the small workunits gave valid output files. Also, adding checkpoints is currently easy for such large workunits - the checkpoint files only need to hold the number of the small workunits that have been completed.

For such a setup, think of having the workunit builder choose only small workunits that share the largest input files for combining into the large workunits.

At first, you might want to try this with a smaller number of the small workunits combined into each large workunit.
