Ah, Jasmin.
That's at Oxford, and it's working fine for me.
So it looks like it's something at your end.

And DON'T go switching to the secure url while you have tasks for the project, or you'll lose the lot.

Message 60224 - Posted: 27 May 2019, 21:48:17 UTC - in response to Message 60216.  

I now have 50 uploads queued 3700 MB of data.

That may be the problem. There's a limit to either the number of files, or the amount of data that BOINC is happy with.

If it IS the problem, then the cure is painful:

1. Suspend network access
2. Suspend each and every one of the tasks in the Tasks tab. (To stop more files from being created.)
3. Create a temporary folder somewhere nearby.
4. Move all but 4-5 of the cpdn zip files to this folder. The ones left should be the lowest numbered zips.
5. Resume network access and see if the zips left behind upload OK.
6. If so, move 4-5 of the zips back to their normal place, and upload them.
7. Repeat.
8. UnSuspend all of the tasks.

If this doesn't work, post here again, and we'll all go down to the pub for a few beers and a good winge.

hmm thats strange i have never had these problems before. I had a computer with 3G modem attached and connected that once a month to upload. I then had hundreds of tasks to upload and did not run into any problems. That was a year or two ago though..

I have to try this then..

I must also say that im running a proxy CCproxy to be able to upload. But it has been working fine before though.. :) Since the problem started i tried to use both HTTP proxy and SOCKS proxy but same error. Download of new tasks works fine still though.

I tried this now. But removeing the zip files does not remove them from the transferlist... I tried stopping and restaring the boincmgr and the boinc service and no difference.

Also there seem to be problems reaching jasmin-upload.cpdn.org to upload files.

I moved the files from this location:
C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\climateprediction.net

I guess BOINC killed them because upload failures which I noticed last week, but were enable to check the full log of the machine.

I don't think so,
Segmentation violation is a program problem.

In computing, a segmentation fault or access violation is a fault, or failure condition, raised by hardware with memory protection, notifying an operating system the software has attempted to access a restricted area of memory.Wikipedia


Some model types seem much more prone to this than others but I don't think anyone has really worked out what is causing it. The problem may be somewhere in the met office code that CPDN uses under license.

Mephist0

It's been perhaps 10 years since this trick of reducing the number of zips in the Transfers queue was last used.
I guess that the way BOINC works has changed a lot since then.

As for not being able to reach the server Jasmin, could you please post the line from the Event log that says this.

Sure.. Here it is.. One thing that is strange.. <file_size>.. Says 1310720 and 2610815 but the files are around 74MB big.. Seems wrong?

Also the filetransfer looks strange.. When it looks finished the tranferbar jumps to around 30% and after that it finishes.. Looks like it does some kind of resume..

Is it possible to reset the resume function and not use that? Could that be the problem? It tries to resume the files but Jasmin does not have the files any longer?

Ok thank you. I could also delete the project and add it as https instead. Maybe that's what causing the problem... Then i have to delete the completed work though. But ill wait for the response first... :)

Apparently "Jasmin" isn't a single server, it's a data center.

They ARE having problems, and our IT people are liaising with their IT people about it.

No idea of when it will be "fixed".

This is in the client_state.xml file.
Look for the file name, in the upload section.
CAREFULLY.

And if you look at the posts below by Mephist0, you can see that it's in one of the BOINC "flags". Probably [file_xfer], as that's at the start of the lines.

Event Log options by the look of it.

Also, I think that this space problem triggers an email alarm to the project people, so I won't do anything in the middle of their night.
