Another trick is to run SIV, it has a BOINC Status page where you can configure it to retry downloads (But you're got to keep that page open, so i'm running two instances)

Claggy


Thanks! I'll try that one out along with allowing more than one transfer.. hopefully I'll be able to get down WUs fast enough without any downtime.. Thanks again! :-)

You should also check out <max_file_xfers_per_project> in Client Configuration. You're still using the default 2.


Thanks! Made myself a config file now.. didnt know that was possible.. hopefully this will help.. I guess I should do a readup of this config file.. seems alot of usefull settings.

Just returned to boinc and seti (still want the old client back tho).. if any other tips that would be appreciated :-)

Thanks. It retires, while initial speed is 12KB/sec it just drops to a nothing after 10-15 seconds. I think average run time for WU dl is about 60 minutes.

Took a screen of it here https://dl.dropbox.com/u/11600062/boinc_transfer.jpg

First off sorry if this is posted in the wrong section.


It seems the last two days I've gotten very slow download speeds from the server, to the point where I'm actually crunching faster than it takes to download.

These are the 8MB WUs from AstroPulse (if that makes a difference, other than size). Log says:

No proxy, and internet connection otherwise is okay.

Anyone else experiencing this also?
