Hello,

I noticed when running boincstat I see a number of files in finished state. I have been used to seeing them in that state while awaiting upload. It now appears when the upload has problems the file remains in the finished state and is not removed.

I'm assuming that the file has been uploaded as it was noted in the log as having been.

Here is the boincstat of one of the files from a few days ago:

Name : 13ja04aa.14664.1984.390916.123
Application : setiathome
App Version : 308
State : Finished
Progress : 100.00
Final cpu : 15799.410156
Report Deadline : Fri Aug 06 19:25:29 CDT 2004

Here is a grep on the logfile for the above file name:

I see the filename is still in both the client_state.xml and sched_request.xml files. This is happening on all of the linux systems but not to all the result files. Only appears to be the ones trying to be returned within the outages.

The boinc version is 3.20. I will respond to this post if the files do get cleaned up. I have tired restarts of the application and the use of -update_prefs and -return_results_immediately, neither of the options have cleaned the files.

Never mind! It appears to be cleaning it's self up. I didn't give it enough time to get back around to the cleanup/results transmission parts of the process.
