We’re having some as yet unexplained slowness with the our BOINC database. There don’t seem to be any hardware issues. Temperatures are running normal and all the drives seem good. Yet for some reason the query that fills the “ready to send” queue is running about 10 times slower than it normally does.
Until I get it fixed, it means that on average we’re sending out 3 workunits a second rather than 30+.
I’ll let you know when I’ve got it figured out.
