I am getting the following errors when I try to upload some result files. Sample error messages are listed below:

OK, I'll let them know, although they may have alarms on that.

That didn't last long.
Now there's another problem.

I've just sent another email.

I have new upload failures, this time for the global tasks (766-770). They started to refuse uploading at about 9 p.m. CET, again with the error message 'server is out of disk space'. Just to let you know...

This has been relayed to the project staff.

Do we still have a problem?

Mine are going up, but some are getting those timeouts intermittently. Server must be very busy with the backload of uploads that were stalled.

As luck would have it, I had ten work units that ended during the outage, and it has been slow going all day with all the zips. But the last four just finished uploading at 260 kbps, so I think the logjam is over.

Oops, getting "No space left on server" error again now on a global batch 766 task.

Also, now getting

This looks like some local disk usage limit coded into the task. Maybe local limit exceeded because uploads aren't happening?
I'll suspend computing on the machine that's getting these errors, for now

I've just reported the out of disk space.
I'll report the error.

I've just lost a model between zips 143 and 144. No error listed.

:(

OK, sent.

How far did those 3 get?
Did you get Restart or out files.

(My failure got the Restart, but not the out file.)

Lost another e0n7 batch 769 zips 60-145 absent
e0os batch 766 zips 90-145 absent
e0nv batch 766 zips 133-145 absent
e1n4 batch 769 zips 124-145 absent
no restart zip files for any of these.

It puzzles me. These all running on a Windows 10 (1803) virtualbox under Ubuntu 18.04 on Intel I7-3770.
I had suspended network activity during the latest upload problems.
I'll check if any of my other machines have reported similar problems. I've suspended computation on those that had their uploads still queued.
<edit>
Don't see any other "exceeded disk limit" errors on other machines. But the one that got the "exceeded disk limit" errors has by far the most uploads queued - over 100 50MB zip files.
I'll sleep on it, doesn't seem to be directly related to the main upload problem

I suspect that this is due to a vaguely remembered problem with BOINC if too many zips/too much date is queued.

Because of this, I've been manually controlling the models.
I let them run for a day, and then suspend them. Then I let all of the uploads get back to Oxford.
Next step is to suspend the models on the 2nd computer, and get rid of them, while letting the 1st computer create some more.
A set of models every hour and 20 minutes creates a lot of data.

Now that I'm only a couple of zips short of finishing, the plan was to only let the models run for an about and a half or so. Just long enough to get one set of zips, then upload them.

But the "out of space" problem caught up with me, so I've suspended everything.

OK, the disk space problem is being worked on.

In the meantime, it's time to keep an eye on all the models.
If there's a lot of data piling up in the Transfers tab, then Suspend the models and wait it out. That way you'll have a chance of getting the data through.
I don't know how many is too many, but I had about 35 zips waiting at one point, and that was OK.

If BOINC suddenly kills off the tasks, that's OK with the project. That problem of too much data is also being talked about.

I'll put a copy of this in the News thread.

My computer has 165 zips waiting for uploading. I'll stop calculation on my machine. Too bad.
