new work coming soon
All the rest of the work was cancelled except long3 (these are the last results which need to complete the batch)
server and db crash
Due a windows 10 bluescreen, cant identify yet whats causing this crashed the project database and cant be recovered. The old backup from 02.02. was resetup.
All new users or hosts after this date need to be registered again. Pls stop all the current work. I will see what I can do to rescue the old work and upload the missing files.
With this new OS I cant believe it. As long as I cant find the issue Iam lost. Trying to readout the dump file to be sure to fix this main problem.
Sorry for all the troubles.

CMS@Home -- ongoing problems
Sorry that the CMS@Home HTCondor server is still playing up. Again over the weekend it refused to serve jobs even though plenty were available. Together with Federica we've decided not to inject another workflow this week, to let if "fail hard" again so that she can investigate which ClassAd preferences are not being met.
So, you will probably see the number of running jobs falling, and the number of errors increasing, in the next few days. Please feel free to set No New Tasks in that case. I won't, so that there is still some pressure for jobs on the server. I've also asked Laurence if I can run the CMS@Home VM outside of BOINC, to get around the quota back-off problem.
No news is good news (sometimes)
Just wanted to say that everything is going on smoothly. The server is stable, the scientists are happy with the results and are doing their analysis. Thanks all!
CMS@Home up again
OK, jobs are available again. Sorry for the long delay. Remember, I'm only the front-man for a larger crew, so any downstream delays percolate up to my response. Hopefully this will remain good for some time, but I still don't understand why the condor server occasionally refuses to send out jobs in a timely manner.
New Runs for MilkyWay@home N-Body (2/10/2020)
We apologize once again, but it seems we have run into another error with the last set of runs. These runs will be replaced by the following runs:
Rest assured that these errors do not affect the ability of your computers to run the milkyway_nbody application and will not cause you to lose credit. Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
CMS@Home accidentally shut down -- Please set No New Tasks
We need to upgrade the CMS@Home WMAgent before Thursday, so I tried to set the workflows to drain down. Unfortunately, I misunderstood the batch states and killed off most of them instead. :-(. There's one still left with about 200 jobs, so that won't last long.
Please set your CMS projects to No New Tasks to avoid getting lots of computation errors. I'll let you know when the upgrade is done and jobs are flowing again.
New Runs for MilkyWay@home N-Body (2/6/2020)
I have put up some new runs for milkyway_nbody. Unfortunately, there was an error with last set of runs put up 3 days ago, so these runs will be replacing those:
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we once again thank you for your continued support.
