I've been getting the same thing must be over a week now and there aren't any problems with my internet connection.

Are you having problems with your mouse sending extra clicks?

That is a known disk problem in the upload server, a replacement is being worked on.

Eighteen redundant posts: 'Tis frustrating dealing with that, especially when the server is S-L-O-W.

Edit: ... and 21 redundant posts in a separate thread. There is no point in posting in two places. 40 posts is overkill (to state the obvious).

The transient upload error is back

Shortly before I looked at the messages, it was uploading albeit only at 4.5KB/s an order of magnitude slower than I normally get.


I noticed the line file upload server: EOF on socket read : asked for 16382, got 14028 Does this indicate a problem with the work unit? An hour or so earlier a zip file from the other task running on the machine went through ok so it will be a few hours before I can check if it is experiencing the same symptoms and even longer till the next upload from my dual core atom machine!

Edit: Watched the last try, progress indicator on upload gets to 100% before the error message. do I abort the work unit?

OK panic over! It went through @ the 7th attempt. I am left with a certain curiosity as to what might have been the problem however and if it is transferring 100% each time before telling me it has failed that is a fair amount of bandwidth to waste. Will check when next zip from that task goes through and report back.

These errors are an indication of a server under heavy load.

Close examination of all the 'tell tales' on my system, hd, the LAN socket led, router, and modem, indicate that the "data transmission", isn't. It seems to be that BOINC has to go through the entire zip file to get to where it left off, and THEN it starts actually sending data to the internet.
A bit like looking for where you're up to on a video tape that rewinds to the start each time, rather than a dvd, which can just jump to anywhere in a fraction of a second.

Thanks Les, I am not so sure about the data not being transmitted though as my impression from the lights on the router was that data was being transmitted. Anyway will check in a few hours time or tomorrow morning to see what happens with the next one.

And another thing - clicking the Abort button doesn't just stop the current transfer, it causes BOINC to delete the zip file from the computer.

Thanks for the reminder Les, I wasn't going to abort at least till I saw what happened with the next zip. If it happens even once I shall suspend network activity for a couple of days to see if things improve.

Got this along with the unexpected eof on both the latest zips so will try suspending internet activity for a while though one did get through from my atom box, albeit on 2nd attempt.

This has been going on for over a Week. I thought that it was because uploader1.atm was not running, However after reading this I am not so sure...


This is over 200 hours of work, I really don't want to lose it....

I might be wrong but isn't a reasonable solution to suspend the project and wait until server problems are sorted out. That way, network activity isn't affected on other projects.
I did this a while ago when there were similar problems. I checked each day to see if it was worth a try.
Worked for me and stopped possible loss of results. We can't get any more work at the moment anyway.

New News post up the top of this section.

About the only thing that can be done on computers, is to set the Network activity off. But then it needs to be manually watched for those people with multiple projects with short completion times.
Perhaps once an hour have a short on, and then off again when the other projects have uploaded.
And Suspend cpdn from running in Tasks, so you don't get any more zips.

Andy is looking into whether there is anything that can be done to cancel these work units.


So what your saying is that after spending 500 hours ( the equivalent of ~21 days ) crunching work for your project your intention is to cancel the WU and give me no credit for 3 weeks of work?

Am I reading this correctly?

Hardly.

To start with, a time-line analysis would be useful. Was your task in the lot Les mentioned? If its release can be squeezed into the recent few days, you might have a concern, but only for scientific relevance (identical tasks run twice).

As has been mentioned on these boards, over and over and over..., credits are awarded for Trickles returned, not at the completion of the task. No credits withdrawn, no exceptions.

Though all mine have gone through and have been going through again for a while now. I am a day or so away from requesting any new work so with a bit of luck the problems on that score will be gone by the time I need some!

Firstly, Thanks for responding astro;

I have looked at this thread and the News thread mentioned here and I can find no reference as to how I can determine if my WU's are in a specific batch.
I can tell you that they were both downloaded on 3 Oct 2012.

As far as credits being awarded, I don't post or read the boards often & considering how long this project has been around there must be tens of thousands of posts. So I do apologize for not knowing your credit system.

I have run this project on a couple/3 occasions and I have always had some kind of problem, there is a reason that out of over 250 million credits in 41 projects I have less than 12k in this one. It seems that I just have bad luck in Climate.

I will just wait until y'all sort this one out.

Thanks again for responding...
