Default NOTICE: The balance work feature is loosing valid rows.


Please disable automatic balancing and don't use the balance button until I get this fixed. Currently I have proven it tosses good rows by watching the counts go down after a re-balance. No clue of the cause yet.

1. It does not loose factors every rebalance. Some specific condition must exist before it is lost. (I find that and I've found the problem)
2. Look in GPU72 or GIMPS for Factors that you think should have been completed by now as those could be lost factors.
3. The balance code has not changed since around 1.2 (auto balance did not change the balance code itself) so this has been with us for a while.

Exclamation

Update as of 11:36 est.

I have confirmed two conditions where a factor row will get tossed out on purpose. (reading the comments in my code and the code confirm these conditions intentionally dispose of rows)
1. The row itself does not start with the word "Factor" exact spelling and case.

2. The row being added into the re-balance queue is an exact duplicate of the row above it. Now this condition is highly unlikely in real world but on my development PC this was the condition that caused me to believe there was a huge problem. On my dev PC I duplicate rows all the time just copy/pasting them for general testing.

3. I cannot cause re-balance to fail on my production PC no matter how I manually scramble the rows. Unless I meet conditions 1 or 2.

So I'm back to thinking there is not a real problem here.

While you were working I tested balance several times and didn't lose any lines. You beat me to the final answer though. I'll keep a lookout for any lost exponents and let you know.

Default MISFIT 2.0.5

VERSION 2.0.5
1. Main grid allows for column resize

2. Implementation of remote reboot via remote control system. Requires MISFITSERVER 1.2.5.

REBOOT-SAFE command only reboots remote if mfaktO/C instances are not running

REBOOT-FORCE command signals any running mfaktO/C to stop and then issues reboot

REBOOTS have a 30 second delay and write the event to the System Event Log indicating MISFIT server performed the reboot.

3. Implemented UPLOAD_RESULTS to the EVENT SCHEDULING system. This allows you to have fixed schedule when results are uploaded compared to the generic interval timer. Only one method of auto uploading is allowed.

**TRY NOT TO UPLOAD AT THE TOP OF THE HOUR AS PRIMENET IS VERY BUSY AT THAT TIME**
**UPLOADING TOO OFTEN ADDS LOAD TO PRIMENET. EXECUTE AS FEW UPLOADS AS YOU CAN TOLERATE**


4. Added FactorRows, FactorsDone, FactorsFound stats into the stats box on the main form. This information duplicates the "Totals" row in the stats grid but is useful if you have a long list of locations and the Total row is out of sight due to scrolling.

Default Need a fix

Thanks for all the additions!

Also, just tried to schedule a daily UPLOAD_RESULTS with 2.0.5. Since I don't have any local instances it won't let me setup a schedule. Is that something you can fix?

Oh, and one very minor thing, make misfit shut up about "Click to restore" once I've seen it(a few many times)?

Why do I have to configure process start control and process stop control before scheduling (only) UPLOAD_RESULTS?

Small effort for me to configure it, but I decide myself when to kill a process (as said before, I do not use remote handling, so I can kill it myself anytime.)

You can put dummy values in as a work around.

For now just put in some dummy values to make the form happy. I'll address the condition in the next build.

Default 2.0.6 is out there.

VERSION 2.0.6
1. Fixed condition where you could not add UPLOAD_RESULTS events if you did not have process START/STOP control configured.
