My last few workunits gave Download failed.

One was wu_012712_031728_0_0.
CAMB 2.16

Could you check if at least one of the input
files required is missing from your server?

This includes at least one workunit from about a week ago, and one for today.

This is a known issue here. When the first result of a workunit is sent out, the result files seem to be deleted on server side.

As the "max # of total" is 4, BOINC sends another 4 tasks for that workunit (an ancient bug, should send only 3), which all fail with this download error.


As long as you don't get a download error as the first receiver of a workunit, the problem didn't get worse ;-)
