Marko First apply the fix, then try if you still have any problem post again.

Message 1344481 - Posted: 9 Mar 2013, 10:09:42 UTC - in response to Message 1344450.

Just an observation:
My Pending Validation has risen from circa 2500 to circa 5200 since implementing the change (via TCP Optimiser). The two events may be related though.
cheers

I've noticed my pending climbing as well, but it started before i made the networking changes.
I suspect it's related to the number of AP WUs out there (for those doing both AP & MB i suspect it's first in first out untill a MB WU gets close to it's deadline), combined which a whole bunch of shorties that have been going through.


My pending was inching up prior to the change as well and took a hike following that. I suspect that the two are not related though. Shorties coming through like intermittent short showers but like a thundering storm. I am seeing the occasional stalled wu though (not box specific). Largest I have seen was 6 stalled wus out of 102 new tasks.

cheers

As Richard Haselgrove said:

"And to repeat, yet again - this thread is not about speed, it's simply about reliability. The idea is to get your downloads with no http errors, no backoffs."

And as I say:

So far, so good.

But...

Let's see what happens Tuesday!

I wouldn't have thought it would require any sort of firewall changes- all it's meant to do is edit the registry.
I just used the command lines to change the settings- i didn't want anything else fiddled with.

COMODO Internet Security Premium...The Notice that a Program was about to make changes was staying in the background so it wasn't allowing the change.
I caught it when I looked at the Taskbar which I keep hidden.

I undertand the reason for this change and that it is not to increase or improve speed. However my problem with speed was outside of BOINC. In fact some sites are just fine I can at normal speed from hp.com and if others don't see speed issues it must be something with my corporate firewall or the Dell website. I have two Identical Win7x64 systems here in my office on one I applied the TCP1323 option and on the other the default windows. When I try to download from the Dell support site the pc with this setting changed only gets about 2KBps the system without this setting is connected to the same switch and is getting 100KBps.

Can someone with Win7x64 who applied this try downloading this video driver from the dell site see what kinda of speed you get. I think it is just an isolated to the Dell.com website?

I got ~600 KBps on Win7x64 with the fix applied. Speed varied wildly between 300 KBps and 1.1 MBps.

Another happy customer for the Tcp1323Opts registry fix. Gave it a try and it seems to have fixed the download issues. Of course, I didn't get any AP units after I tried it but things were so bad even the 300Kb non-AP ones were timing out. Not one timeout after the fix, and the affected host has been getting two minute CUDA shorties so has been constantly downloading since then.

OK thanks this must just be related to some thing between the dell site and my network or the corporate WAN filtering software.

Thanks I will do my Dell downloading else where ;)

About 580KB/sec overall, over a DSL line running at 5.615 Mbps in the UK.

That's for a machine running with the Tcpopts active - I'll go downstairs and try in on a control machine (Win7/32) I haven't patched yet, same DSL line.

Edit - that machine, Win7/64 with the TCP optimisation, showed a slower average speed to start with, and gradually speeded up. The Win7/32 without optimisation started faster, but slowed down. They both ended up with almost exactly the same average overall.

I am getting around 80k or so with that driver.

I got about 850kB/s on my 10Mbit ADSL line, which is about 85% of possible speed.

My test was doing about 6799Kbps, but you can't go by that as I'm running under FIOS at 50/25.
