Thanks Joe!

Another question perhaps, with my relatively recent join date here, is there possibly a discrepancy or maybe lack of something when it comes to the current numbers when it comes to the spike scores as well as the pulse scores?

Could these numbers possibly be better (at times) or are they as they "always" have been?

Thanks for any answer!

Downloads are a tussle right now, but at least enough work is flowing that my rigs are offa Einstein and the kitties have stopped eating all the crickets.....

I've got 5 downloading right now, and downloading and downloading and downloading...

My downloads are pretty reliable. Takes about 10 seconds to get going, but they come through at ~20kb/sec. HTTP errors at the start of the transfer are only about 10% of the time. No proxies, using .13.

I sat and watched my i7 download a bunch of work last night. I found the Retry Now button to be of limited usefulness. It really only does anything when the downloads go into project backoff, which is pretty short anyway (running Boinc 6.10.60 on that one, downgraded from 6.12.34) and it actually makes the unit I retry sit stuck longer before it goes to retry and Boinc moves on to downloading the next one.

The one thing I found interesting is that if everything goes into project backoff, one or both of the downloads in progress might continue and if one finishes it takes the whole thing out of backoff early.

Just did a vroute check of the d/l servers.. packet loss 3%:-(
My minor rig is trying to d/l and getting .42Kb/s to 2.3Kb's..
Guess its not just the server itself, theres a slow part of the route as well when it hits Centica? or some such network.

If you've got the bandwith, you can have more than the default two transfers at a time. In your cc_config.xml file:
<max_file_xfers>n</max_file_xfers> <max_file_xfers_per_project>n</max_file_xfers_per_project>

Can you give us an example of an cc_config.xml file after you add the lines?
Because i try it, and client reply with an error at the file.

How's this?

<cc_config> <options> <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> <max_file_xfers>4</max_file_xfers> <max_file_xfers_per_project>4</max_file_xfers_per_project> </options> </cc_config>

And actually, you don't need <max_transfers>. That one is more aimed at global. I just have <max_transfers_per_project>5</...> in mine and it works fine.

Oh, and task pages are still turned off.. [getting antsy]. I did notice that the 'pending' link is finally gone though.

That is on the same link as the tasks, it will be back when they allow them to be shown once again.

I'm talking about on the account page. Has Computers, Tasks, and used to have Pending. Pending is gone, but Tasks is still there. It just gives you an error message when you click it.

On single computer details, "tasks" is gone entirely, but it is still there on the list of computers and again.. gives an error message. I know tasks viewing is turned off at the moment.. I was just commenting on how the useless Pending page is finally gone.

Please can't we have our result pages back now? The project must have recovered by now.

End of mini whining.

The servers may have recovered but have the staff recovered from the recovery operation :¬)

My cache is full! A full 10 days of AP (55-56). Got issued about 10 B3_P1's and B6_P0's in the process. Moved those up to the front of the line to get rid of them and get some more.
