All my uploads are stuck for the last 9 hours.
[error] Error reported by file upload server: Server is out of disk space


And with no downloads either, I will be out of work in a few minutes.

I am not getting "out of disk" space errors. The old infamous "transient upload error" is slamming me into the digital brick wall.

They just send that out to special people.

PS - I just tried a manual upload, and it is starting to work now. I am sure they will be busy for a while.

It is often here "out of disk space" ! Usually it take 1 or 2 days and all become normal again.
Everyone know it. But like some write : it is sprint !!!
It was to expects, but admin of Sprint stay to start competition on such project.
It is the same on ODLK and ODLK1. Those projects can not manage so much load.
Of course a sprint give a lot of power to scientists. By the way, it is the goal. Helping research.

And it will be worst and worst. Hours after hours.
All of us have a lot of WU already finished. Ready to be sent.
So again bottleneck....
Pitty ! But not the fault of project,

Let us hope on fast solution. We only can wait.

I would encourage "Admin's of formula Sprint" not do any stress test or create any competition if users or admins are informed.

This Formula have been apart to play with projects then regular boinc challenges and become power of use to own use when they feel like more then need on project and stress test server on when project amin needs it or at least get informed long before it got used.

As regular basis it is short time on pick project and inform project of this stress test. This is not good for project and for us user it create a lot pain. (I could only reach forum on SSL by now).

My computers is probably included in your competition but was unaware of it and not interested to formula challenges. I would encourage admins to go back to boinc challenges or shutdown completely.

I got an announce on hangout that it was a work on this project at this time. Ifi did not seen it it would appear as bad server issue to me.

Bad experience like this hurt users a lot and make them avoid the project so this is critical to hand it correctly if you like to stress test it.

This become a playroom of some admins to pick project as they like without any conflict of project state it is in.

Should we other users that do do work to cosmology at home to suffer on time that this Formula take effect without any announce to it?
I do understand that this "Sprint" could be in short time (3 days?)
But this long enough to make damage on users to avoid project.

Solution: Announce before ANY challenge or leave it to us that do care of project.
We are real and here and we get info from forum (if formula sprint didn't killed http and forces us users to use SSL to reach forum project).

Leave it or work with project admins is my last call.

(my task is now uploaded but not reported)

Admins to Formula: Be a part or leave project that they are, make changes as to point large number of users could hurt more then gain. It have been great time to to follow site in time of event but at this time it hurt me more then it gain to me or project. My client to project suffer and i was unable to reach it. I manage to use https to reach forum and saw my client unable to upload. (time ticking on deadline).

We contribute project daily and see this unaware of any announce of issue in forum or server site it hurt me and some abort project and never go back.

I have supported project since 2015 much as others and would not give up because some site encourage to get inflorate from site of ours with users to fetch task in such short time. This was used at 90's and may not fit well on all sites/project today if project admins do not ask for it.
Your work hurt more then gain us on contribution, i see most users leave and and only take part on formula other stay to project and no profit left other then DDOS in short time.
Please consider our behavior, what could be changed on your part and i would be happy to stay to contribute to project with less issues.

This Formula.org ? what is it used for other then get get control of user behavior to boinc. The effect such site is pure pump/dump on your need and feelings to it. It would provide a forums but lack of info and les active outside event to challenge these project.
I ask my self as this grow up to be big part outside boinc itself to take a part to take users without any info out be an official site to handle these task.
An OVH from France but what is background on this?
(Long term contribution to cosmology and and other projects)

Suggestion on promote yourself as site:

we are [this] and provide [this].
Our background is [this] and we do this because [this] at specific times.
[we] wun this site to give users more to project and would [announce this] of challenges at this [date].

The issue occurred shortly after Saturday, 15:00 UTC, and was resolved before Sunday, 00:00 UTC. That's just ~8 hours response time, on a weekend.

Marius, if this was your doing, thanks and kudos. :-)

A further outage occured around 3pm UTC on Sunday.

This took down both the website and all the upload/download server functions.

When I checked again around 1am UTC Monday, the website was up and running but many other fucntions were not.

One hopes that this doesn't happen again too quickly and it could be related to the Formula BOINC Sprint this weekend, putting undue pressure on the server(s).

regards
Tim
