Nothing else but validator and scheduler is turned on now, but HDD just can't keep up. It didn't happen in the previous two years, I don't know why it's happening now.


Read much? :P

I don't know the capacity of your RAID array, so SSD(s) may be cost prohibitive for a short term problem. Is this one situation where that weird SSD thing Intel created could be of use? Optane, I think it is called.

Ahhhh. The joy of having incredibly powerful GPUs entering the market every year or so... :)

I know you feel bad about it, so thanks for working so hard to fix the problem, and letting us know the details.

There is only one essential service right now. Validation.

The work that has already been completed and turned in needs to take full priority, to ensure fair results in the Pentathlon, especially for the smaller or newer teams. The larger teams know we always break something. :) The new guys will just blame you instead.

Anyway, good luck, and get a freaking SSD already. :P
