After several emails and evaluations of what is happening with Predictor,
here is the status and plan.
There is a small validator bug… (possibly). We will not know until a heavier load is placed on the system
The WU generator isn’t creating work fast enough because it is ‘demand based’… and right now, there is no demand for work. It may stay this way during the load test or it may jump into normal mode since it is demand driven.
Since testing began, all but a couple WU’s run clean… There have been 8 failures (WUs) over 1000+ WU’s since testing began.
I, have been authorized to coordinate the last phase of the load testing while the P@H staff is at CASP 6. I am the acting test director until CASP 6 is over or we go live.
Mac’s are still having issues. This will be resolved when the staff returns.
6. THE MESSAGE BOARDS ARE DOWN UNTIL AFTER TESTING AND SWITCH TO LIVE STATUS
Summary: We aren’t putting enough of a load on the system for it to work properly!!!
I am now accepting requests for the URL and activation of accounts, contingent on confidentiality of the test URL.
The test URL will be changed to the live URL if testing is successfull (which it should be considering the data examined). THEREFORE, ALL POINTS ACCRUED WILL COUNT!!!
I will add 5-10 users at a time, attempting to maintain a balance of Intel/AMD and Windows/Linux. 1-2 CPUs/user is assumed unless you tell me otherwise. I expect to add 5-10/day (avg 20 cpus)
I will pause at 50 users briefly, let it stabilize and we will evaluate… . If the sytem is working better and smoother, we will continue to increase the load up to 100. Should we reach the 100 user milestone, we will evaluate whether to go to 200 or not at that time or remove any CPU restrictions.
Testing is open to all existing P@H users on a first come, first served basis consistent with the priority of AMD/Intel, Windows/Linux balance.
I would like to communicate with each user via a distribution list, so please have an email address that you don’t mind being seen by others. If you need confidentiality, please inform me and I will abide by your wishes and handle it.
So, everyone… Crank’em up… it’s time to have some fun!
Predictor is going to go live … Let’s give it one last load test.
I can be reached currently via my address on file here at TPR. I will create an email address for all to use
When emailing me, I do request you put “Predictor Test Team Signup” in the subject.
'tiz a great day!!!
Let’s have some fun!!!
