BOINC reported all the files to be in the mid to high 80Mb.

At the time of me seeing your comment I had one being uploaded, BOINC reported as ~86Mb, and was about the same when file was on the disc (needless to say it uploaded as I was looking at it and your message so I didn't catch the right sets of digits.....)

Richard - I just set http_debug....
"Instantly" all the tasks in transfer vanished from view, some of them reappeared about half a minute later.
One thing I noticed was a number of blank lines - here's a sample @ 10:23:23:

I started with about 20 or so zip files to upload, now down to 7, plus one that's 100% progress, but in "upload: retry in 01:35:xx". Once the rest have cleared I might give that one a nudge....
Have fun
(I should say I'm running BOINC version 7.16.20 on Windows 10 with Virtual box.)

The arthritic snail that is uploads slides slowly up the sandpaper.....
It's very patchy, sometimes a zip will go up up smoothly, but most of the time the snail is being very careful, if not stopped and soothing its painful foot.

I'll just have to have a dig around and see what other project grabs my fancy and has work for a Windows PC.

No way I'm going to touch any "social media" stuff, and the BOINC Notices system will only get picked up by people who've not turned them off, and who bother to look at BOINC anyway. (Do they even appear in the simple view?)


The answer to your question is "sort of" - the notices button gains a red border when you hover over it, not very obvious, and not every user will even bother with looking at the simple view to see that.

And last night something stirred in the land of Jasmine - the mountain of my backed up zip files were transferred, stating round about 10pm BST.

I've just looked - two tasks waiting to upload, a total of 23 zip files mostly around 90Mb each.
Surely, when sending work out one would have an idea of the returned file sizes, and either think about not sending a particular job out if there might be a space issue, or make sure that there is more than sufficient space available for the return files.

Today is a somewhat sad day in the land of the CPDN servers - the work (tricle=ups?) gets sent back, or at least the transmit report says 100%, then stalls. Typical message is:

Oh well, the server might get better without a kick in the nodes, but I suspect it is going to need the well directed application of a size-ten reboot....
