BIG storm here right now. Expect a power blip at any point.

I have to head out for 30 mins. right now.

...put the battery back in my laptop for the time being.

Max, if you can show me how to run the loop thingie if it's not too technical, I'll do that. Otherwise if it goes down, I restart it, and then it crashes with the 1st prune, I'll temporarily change the prune period to 86400 secs. again.

Okay, for the loop thingy, instead of running the command ./llrnet llrserver.lua for each one, run this string of commands (all on one line, then press Enter at the end):

while ./llrnet llrserver.lua ; do echo "Restarting server! *******************" >> restart.log ; done

Note that with this in place, if you need to stop the server with Ctrl-C, it will just immediately restart. Thus, you'd need to terminate the loop itself in order to kill the server. This can be done by closing out the terminal tab the server resides in, or by killing the while loop directly. (Probably closing out the tab is the easiest.)

P.S.: I'll see about doing some research on UPS units. If we could get your computers on one of them that would be a huge godsend.

Port 2000 will be processing our 11th drive. I have now added it to the 1st post of this thread. David is already aware that we will be using that port for the drive.

Max, Ian, or Karsten, can you take care of getting the Email notification turned on for primes on that port? It was previously used for double-checking so I doubt the notification is turned on at the moment.

Can someone with an LLRnet server ID of "llrserver" please identify yourself?

If someone caches 100's of pairs at once without returning any to the server over 10 hours, we need to know who is doing this to prevent potential monkey business.

David, if we don't get a response to this post by Tues. morning U.S., I will suggest that you temporarily change the JobMaxTime from 3 days to 12 hours so that the pairs get quickly handed back out to others. If the problem continues, we may drop it all the way to 3 hours for a while. ...Sorry regular folks; this looks very suspicious.

David,

Please change the JobMaxTime on port 2000 to 12 hours to clear out pairs taken in an unusual manner by 'llrserver'.

For our regulars, for the time being, please make sure you don't cache more than you can complete in 12 hours. AFAIK, it's just Karsten and me on the server right now and nothing (except for the llrserver ID) has been taking any longer than about 20 minutes; which is me cacheing 5 pairs at a time.

When we change it back, we may just go to 24 hours instead of 3 days, especially at these lower n-ranges.

One more thing: Is there a way to prevent people from cacheing more than 100 or 200 pairs at a time? I'm asking because we're quite vulnerable to having a large quantity of pairs "swiped" by just about anyone for their own nefarious means. Even for non-connected people who wish to return a large quantity at once on a different connected machine, I can't see a reason to ever cache more 200 pairs at once.


Thanks,
Gary

Something amiss on IB2000. According to results file, nothing has returned in the last 5 hours. Slackards. LOL

No, my machines are good and ready to connect to the server. I killed the processes and tried restarting them...no luck.

Port 2000 is officially dead in the water at the moment. AMDave is apparently not available. I just sent Ironbits an Email.
