Missed that. Then they should have been aborted on the server side. I aborted quite a few others that were not batch 9.

These WUs are cancelled after 4 or more clients return a task of the respective WU with an error. (Would be good if Krzysztof cancelled them earlier.)

For fun, I downloaded a bunch of these _5 tasks yesterday (among a whole lot of _9 tasks), shut down the client, edited client_state.xml for a bigger <rsc_disk_bound>, restarted the client, and computed these tasks successfully.

But many or all of these tasks (of the ones that I uploaded so far) were then marked as "Completed, can't validate" on the server, with errors = "Too many errors (may have bug)" status of the WU. I'm sure nobody else did the editing that I did, and I was probably not my own wingman in any of these tasks... :-/

However, I have a nasty problem with the _9 series tasks from Sunday:

Their results files are ~20 MB per task. And with the amount of processors that I have (somewhat above normal), and my internet connection on the other hand (a pretty normal German cable modem connection), I can compute about 4 times more tasks than I can upload during the same time!

I wonder how that compares with the _5 (or other) tasks. The reason may simply be that the _9 are larger now. But if they were divided into smaller pieces, then the upload amount would still be the same in total. It could be just that the earlier ones failed more often that you did not see the problem earlier.

I uploaded about 2000 tasks during the last few days. It went slow and I had quite a few retries, but it generally worked for me. I have client versions 7.8.1, .3 and .4, each one on Linux. I did not alter any http related cc_config.xml items, nor do I use a proxy.

The _5 tasks are affected the same way, it's just that I had a lot more _9ers than _5ers.

I didn't watch the other batches closely.

Hmm, you are right. 4th error was reported March 12, 2:50:33 UTC, and 5th error at 3:19:48 UTC, yet there was still a new task sent at 3:20:01 UTC.
Am I interpreting the line "max # of error/total/success tasks | 4, 10, 2" incorrectly?

6 hours of processor time wasted on that one alone... :-(

This seems hopeless.
I've had 143 files waiting for transfer for last FOUR days.
They are _5 and _9.
Should I keep trying or just delete them?

@ Chris,
You could try to stop BOINC and then re-start it. I have had this work for me on a number of occassions but it is only a suggestion.
I have had no work for awhile and just got some today, but have had no upload or download issues recently.

Your last contact was on the 13th of March, hitting update should contact the server, if you have been doing this then there is an issue at your end as it now has been 3 days since your last contact.

Is your anti-virus being picky and blocking you?

It seem like we're getting _10 WU:s now! So far I've done a few dozen and no errors but none verified yet either. Great to see we're back in business again!

my laptop work on Einstein, Milky Way and LHC alongside Universe@home projects.
All other transfers go through with absolutely no problem.

thanks for the tip. It looks like that was it. Suddenly everything is going smoothly :)

Also my PC can't upload the _5 and _9 results. I have about 40 WUs to upload from 3 days. I canceled all the remaining WUs to not lose other hours of work.

Yes, I do agree!
I've done 134 so far, of which 65 are valid, none invalid, and only one single Comp.Err.

Keep on sending out more WU's - we're happy to crunch 'em all weekend! :-)))

This BHSpin, not BHDB.
You probably have deleted previously downloaded application. Project reset should help.

in the last hours 7 wu ended with computation error and the almost usual message "EXIT_DISK_LIMIT_EXCEEDED".
Disk limit is currently set at 64 Gb and at least 50 Gb are free and available.
