The lack of communication is a real big turn off. This was my #1 project for my SBCs, going to put it last as it looks we are taken for granted and we cannot depend on it for work.

Yep, it's all about you PappaG. All DC projects exist purely for your personal enjoyment. Grow up and STFU!

Same here. Unable to upload/download. I had to override the SSL expiration in Firefox to even get to this thread.

I am getting "no work available" for my ARM Raspberry Pi's. The server status shows plenty of work.

I think you certainly deserve to be paid for your efforts. Talented IT people should not be expected to work for free. But this is a volunteer project for all of us. Should not the University of Warsaw, or the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences be supporting you?

I certainly understand if you can not continue. You have done more than your fair share for science. It seems that the institutions may be letting you down. I hope they can find some way to pay you something. Good luck.


I agree. +1

What's that about?

Link to WU, please?

No work unit. When I request work in BOINC your server (or BOINC) responds with that message. Thanks.

11) Message boards : Number crunching : Large upload Files (Message 101)
Posted 26 Feb 2015 by Dataman

Users can only do two things. 1. Point out an apparent problem and 2. Switch to another project. Now a number of us have pointed out that the size of the upload files are unmanageable at the users end. In my case, my cache is set at two days although the maximum is 10. BOINC software manages that quite well and only downloads more when the software thinks that it can handle the work in the allotted time. Please note that the BOINC Project software also gives you the choice of limiting the number of units sent, beyond which the user gets a message that his request accede the daily limit and will not get new workunits. As regards the slowness of the upload. I am on cable and the Techs at Optus my cable provider tells me that my upload speed is 1.4 Mbps and the problem is at your end as can be proven by pinging your server. It is not capable of supporting receiving such large uploads from many sources. This can be likened to a DOS attack. Please note also that Universe is the only project that have this problem. I can upload to any of the other 50+ active projects in a matter of minutes not hours.

Finally, since you have indicated that you can not do anything about this in the foreseeable future, I am also setting my machines to No new work and crunch some other more suitable project. If and when the project is fixed I might return for I like the science behind it. Good Luck.

Keep on crunching and have a nice day...

Thanks Pete. In my case I have the maximum bandwidth AT&T will give a residential customer and my cache was set to 0.01 and still it choked my network. Will be interested to see what others think. I too like the science and will see what happens here but cannot participate.

As a big supporter of the Test project, I was very disappointed to see the unmanageable file sizes are not going to change in the foreseeable future. I have removed this project from my servers and moved them to Einstein. Good luck with the project but I will no longer participate in it.

Yes, it is taking me >2 minutes to access the web server and the WU uploads are taking >15 minutes and I am only running 20 of 60 cores. This is not going to work for me unless things can be speeded up.

Well, I finally got the new project established on a couple of servers ... more to come later. A bit of a hassle starting all over. Good luck Krzysztof.
