Since 2020-05-02 I have had problems uploading results. I do this from two different IP's (two different ips) so it's unlikely to be some weird firewall issue.

I do get new tasks in a timely maner so I don't think the server dislikes me and tries to cut me off. EDIT: As of late it seems like the downloads stalled too - but a lot later than when uploads started to fail)

It affects all my hosts, which use three different OS'es.

Everything points to the servers. Out of diskspace on the DB servers? But I get confused when I see I'm the first to report this after 5 days of problems. There is a chance that everybody else felt that "somebody else will report it", but I never the less cannot get rid of the feeling that it might be me.

This is a chunk out of the log

I get the same, but only for about the last day. I think it was fine before that, as I didn't spot any tasks getting stuck. Just tried a few computers in case it was my fault.

And just after posting that, a computer I told to update has managed to report it's completed tasks and start a download of 3 more (which is stuck). Looks like things are working sometimes. I think something is overloaded somewhere on the servers. If your computer isn't doing anything, try a manual update and it might get somewhere in 10 minutes or so.

Even this forum is slow, maybe something like the whole internet connection to the university is busted?

We have 1Gb/s line shared with storage server (where results go from main server as it comes).
One ULX result is various from 4 to 50 megabytes each (BH's are small)....

Once most ULX comes back uploading/downloading will speeds up.
The problem comes with bunkered WU's as thousands of it coming simultaneously and temporary block line. This should solve itself soon.

From the looks of it, I have a few tens of uploads in the queue, must have been offline for at least 12 hours!

Yes, it will solve itself - after the Pentathlon. Then all users will abort their remaining workunits they can be sent out again to the hand full of daily users over the next months.

I don't see the point of these Pentathlons. All they do is move people temporarily from one project to another. I doubt they get more people into Boinc in total.

"The point" is a friendly competition. Keeps things fresh.

I think you are not right. The Pentathlon generates awareness and motivates many people for more crunch power. For a short time period.
An maybe new boinc user use boinc after the race.
Beside of that it is fun. Join a team, go to their forum.

Pentathlon maybe fun for some, but it is a pain for others. I was happily crunching on this project, now thanks to the Pentathlon I am no longer crunching for the project.

I'm not so sure. Don't they just attract people who are already doing Boinc? I can't see a non-Boincer spotting the pentathlon and doing it. How would they even hear about it? I run 5 Boinc projects, and have been on Boinc since it started, and I didn't know about it until it was mentioned in here.

I run Boinc to do science. Yes I do watch my stats on Boincstats, but just as an idea of how well I'm doing. Even if I was obsessed with competing, the stats are forever, not just a short period. I prefer to look at my overall position.

Why stop? It's no big deal if occasionally you have to wait for WUs to transfer. There are always problems for some reason or another on projects, which is why all my computers have at least 2 things they can do.

The Pentathlon will be over soon and everything will return to normal.
It's a bit of fun (not really a competition imo) but just a bit of fun. A competition has rules and a level playing field, these events don't have that.

I have 100's of wu's waiting for upload.

This is very close minded. I began running BOINC after seeing a post on my forums looking for more members for a Formula Boinc sprint challenge. With teams looking for the top spot during the pent, many start recruiting members within their forums, websites and circles of friends. Some do the pent and then never come back, others see the interest and continue.
