Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

Well I have asked for the password.

While writing this post and the one on WCG earlier this week it's come to my attention that I need to appoint someone else to do this who is better at writing than me.

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

Stats are updating on the marathon now.

Pretty sure the Sprint will need something custom done on it, so I've made a post on the WCG forums asking how to get it done.

If they don't give me access to do hourly updates, then WCG will be omitted from the Sprint.

Re: Server ordered

Would four of these https://www.newegg.com/samsung-883-dct- ... klink=true

In RAID 10 offer a good bit more performance than a SATA HDD?

I'm gonna run the operating system off the HDD, but the web site and database will run off the RAID array.

Re: Server ordered

I think it's a 1U server chassis. So probably not a lot of room. I'll email the data center and ask here shortly.

Re: Server ordered

Anyone wanna help find some faster storage options for this server? I know for sure the 2TB spinners are slow. It's only got PCIe 2.0 I think. So would a PCIe drive be faster than SATA SSDs? If so, how much faster? The RAID controller supports RAID 10 so I could get 4 reasonably sized SSDs and run t...

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

I havent looked at all the new projects everyone has added yet. Been working out of town. Tonight I'll break out my laptop and see what may be wrong. Sprints use WebRPC. Marathons use the user stats file. So if you didn't enter the team stats and user stats files when you added the project then it w...

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

It's not that big a deal, just want you guys to get familiar with it all. The Sprints dates will be setup and known prior to the start of the year (or within' a couple weeks) anyway so it will only need to be done once anyway. I'm thinking of running around 6 Sprints a year, and scheduling them so t...

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

Make sure you edit the start and stop time. The Sprint is scheduled to start at 25 minutes after the hour. I think they'll be better to start on the hour, since the stats will update on the hour. Also, do not select the Sprint project. Make sure it's set so a random sprint will be selected. I know y...

Those of you with admin. So you guys can get familiar with how to work it. Add 2 - 3 projects to the marathons, select whether they're eligible for a sprints and then setup 1 Sprint that'll start a 2 days after the current one ends or the last Sprint on the list ends. Add projects you don't mind run...

Has to be a different username that you aren't using for regular user.

The admin control panel is a different login, but shares the same user table. So usernames have to be unique.

Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

I'm looking for around 5 people who will be willing to help maintain the web site.

This will include managing active projects by adding or removing them from the competition.

Helping set up the "test" sprints for stress testing the project servers.

Moderating the forums.

Test sprint

Test sprints are going to be new projects that will be tested to ensure they can handle the load of a live contest. However, we need to come up with a better name for these other than "test sprint". I was thinking maybe call them Project Benchmark.

Open to more ideas though. So let's hear them.

Re: Feed Bot Issues

Ah that's how to disable it. I couldn't find it when I went looking to disable one that was offline.

I posted on ODLK1's site a little while ago about their feed being broken: https://boinc.multi-pool.info/latinsqua ... php?id=140

Re: Feed Bot Issues

I thought about that, too; however I think the issue is the fact that when the feed is down then it doesn't matter how long the time out is since it's going to time out anyway. Correct? I meant to keep track of both the feeds I had to remove so I could add them back later, but I found two feeds that...

It does work, after I installed it, but it doesn't show anything for the VRMs only the CPU temps; which I use pSensor to show me that since it shows each individual core's temp in a nice GUI.
