Message 537 - Posted: 28 Jun 2007, 14:30:57 UTC - in response to Message 535.  

One of my units' status has said "Uploading" for the past half hour after the server has been back online. It seems frozen in this configuration even after I "Update" the project, and stop and re-start the Boinc client.

Shall I wait a bit longer and then delete the unit if it stays this way?

Thanks! :)


if you switch to the tab called: Transfer (iirc), you should see the result files (5 files per WU) with some kind of counter that will wait for a retry.

Boinc defaults will not only change the project reconnects from 1 per min to a few hours if the project is down, but also delay the uploads so a project doesn't get hammered with incoming file requests.

You can either try: upload now (button on the left) or simply wait.

When the upload of all files is complete, update the project and the result should be reported and dissapear from your client.

Regards,

Sysfried

Try going this way at it:

BOINC Manager
Advanced
Retry Communications

That should contact the server immediately.

Your guys are great! :)

I have been using the Boinc client for a couple of years and never knew that this was another way to force an upload beyond what I had tried to do! Can always stand to learn new tricks! :)

Thanks again, success!

Thank you! I was successful using the "Transfer" method, and certainly appreciate learning about your method, too! :)

Thanks a lot Scott for these very fast repair of the problems. Very good work. Cosmology@home will be my favourite project, I think. ;)

Which one of the ATA group decided to break the server?\


Wasn't me...

You must share that Beer, 25 w/u and wrappers in Que and Transfer TAB.The Last time this happened, was restored in 8 hours.I can wait, lol, had 2 Individually retry again each upload in the transfer, 24 times = 24 BEERS, wobbly pops.

Funny I never noticed the problem the first time around. Now I have 120 WU's all doing this. It's just nice to know that I am not alone.
