New COD entries are added.

Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.

Checked my bandwidth and had 29mbit/s but had to go from computer to computer retrying all the failed downloads/uploads for the 3 hours of work availability.

Yep same, I get a handful of WU's and then the uploads & downloads lock up completely. The problem is only with xansons as all other boinc work and internet activities remain unaltered, then 4 or 5 hours later the WU's finally finish going where there supposed too, by then all work is gone.
According to the server that's from just 118 users. Actually probably a lot less users than that as many users download both CPU and GPU work at the same time. Problem is it seems to be getting worse each fortnight.

@ Vlad: I realize this project is just running part time now but is there any way of increasing bandwidth on the day? I mean it's only needed for at most 6 hours once a fortnight.
It such a short time period maybe your ISP would do you a solid and give you a bit of bandwidth flexibility once a fortnight?
Stranger things have happened. LOL

All the best.

Yes, sorry for that. It's almost like a DDOS for the server each time and it's getting worse. I think I can increase network bandwidth by a factor of 3 or 4 by temporarily upgrading the virtual server. I'll do it by the next time, let's see if it helps.

There's nothing to be sorry about Vlad, many crunchers including myself still think this is a valuable project and perhaps try a little to hard to snag every bit of work they can.

LOL you may be a victim of your own success?

But if you could help that would be appreciated.

Cheers..

That was partly my fault. I was trying to complete my 100 hours for WUProps on the CPU and GPU work units and the work here is so rare. I was manually updating the project and retrying stalled d/l-u/l's for 29 machines Saturday for 3 hours before work. It was hectic and like real work...

Have 250 hours on the CPU now (would have had it 2 weeks prior but 24 machines were missing proper C++ libraries) and the 100 on GPU should be done by my slow ATI HD 7450M by tomorrow.

I'll let the BOINC client work it's slow methodical way from now on.

That is another thought; does the feeder have a parameter to slow the WU generation to 1 per minute so about 13 hours for a batch like yesterday?

It is kind of my fault also. I have hit my goal for this year and will back off a lot.

I had bought a couple of GPUs to add for the project and had to learn a lot to get my level up there. I want to thank the project because I really had some fun and it made this computer stuff more exciting.

No, this is nobody’s fault. It is quite natural that the users want to get as much WUs as possible under the conditions where the number of WUs is highly limited. I think that slowing down the WU generation will make the process even more painful for those users who stop other projects to speed up the calculations for this one. I hope that temporarily server upgrade will help with the network bandwidth and no other actions will be required.

That sounds good, thanks for your effort! I'm really looking forward to tonight's batch. ;)

Hello Vlad,
I hope you could adapt network !
If I look new registred users : 0
But new hosts in the past 24 hours : 207 !!!
It will say from the 141 recent users some have add a lot of hosts .
It will be very big bottleneck !
It increase release after release...

Ii will be a very hot saturday evening for your server !!!

I upgraded the virtual server performance to the same level as it was during the last weeks of active phase of the project in September 2017. So, the network bandwidth is about 500 Mbit/s now. However, it seems that limitations come from the number of incoming packages per second and unfortunately this parameter cannot be increased by simple server upgrade.
