I don't think that drilling to 3 cm really counts.
It counts if goal of that part of mission was drilling to that length. If goal was 10 cm and only 3 cm were achieved, then it would indeed be failure.
Be successful.  Then tell the haters to (BLEEP) off. - deruch
...and if you have failure, tell it anyway.

The mission team wants to put soil on top of the cable going to the seismometer to reduce vibration noise.

True, I remember now, I forgot about it with all the excitement going on at Jezero :) Thanks for the reminder!

After the test trenches were dug, the burying operation has started: first by dropping a scoopful of soil onto SEIS' wind cover, which remarkably has dislodged the accumulated dust and cleaned the surface where it slid down.

NASA InSight’s Power Level as of July 9, 2022

Naomi Hartono Posted on July 13, 2022

On July 9, 2022, InSight was generating an average of 399 watt-hours of energy per Martian day, or sol. The tau, or level of dust cover in the atmosphere, was estimated at 1.02 (typical tau levels outside of dust season range from 0.6-0.7).

What was the bare minimum to keep Insight with the seismometer operating?

Also, does communication take more power than the seismometer? Since its pointless to run it if we cannot get any data.

The communication can be done sporadically (would be anyway as a relay crossed the site) with data collection between comm sessions, so not really an issue.

So 30 hours on and 16 off for SEIS at the moment, and about 1 month of operations left.
