1) Message boards : Number crunching : Free-DC reports negative credits today for CPDN (Message 60552)

that second link I can get the files from ok, but they are out of date and match up with what I have at Free-DC. If you look in the tables.xml file the update time is 1561384650

This is in unix epoch format which translates to Monday, June 24, 2019 1:57:30 PM

This matches the timestamp on the files themselves.

Someone needs to kick the xml output job to update the files :)

I'm actually getting a forbidden 403 when trying to retrieve the stats files from https://www.climateprediction.net/stats/

Perhaps like Einstein@Home they now have individual credentials required?

Any admins reading this ?

May well have been a firewall issue, I worked with Milo this morning on some tests and with a few firewall tweaks the downloads worked ok, though slowly.

Hopefully it\'s resolved now but we\'ll not for a few days.

I was just informed about this post here as I run and maintain the Free-DC stats site.

I\'m not sure where the problem is occurring but a number of the stats sites are having issues downloading the CPDN xml files. We all keep getting timeouts during the transfers, so I\'d guess it\'s a bandwidth problem somewhere along the line.

One suggestions was to alter our scripts to try to take this into account and do some resuming, which is doable, though not simple.

I\'ve had 5 replies from other stats sites saying they have the same problem with CPDN.. Not heard from Willy at Boincstats, perhaps he does something different. I altered my userAgent to have a 2 minute timeout, but it\'s still not helping. wget seems to work ok eventually, given there is no timeout at all.

Is there anything that can be checked on this end ?
