08:06 <buscher> hello, I am using boinc 7.0.15 (linux x64) and a lot of task failed to download errors (while some files for the task are still downloading), is that the project fault? or boincs?

15:33 *** emmar has joined #boinc

15:33 <emmar> I have 3 computers crunching for seti

15:33 <emmar> And Seti has been terribly slow and unable to provide me wu's

15:33 *** desti has joined #boinc

15:34 *** Haldrik has quit IRC

15:35 <Tank_Master> emmar, thats normak for SETI

15:35 <Tank_Master> normal*

15:36 <emmar> Dont they receive enough donations that they could possibly upgrade a server or two? :D

15:36 <Tank_Master> heh one would think, they say no

15:36 <Tank_Master> they also say theres not enough space in the closet for more

15:37 <emmar> I have RPI down the street from me, I think they run Milkyway@home

15:37 <emmar> And I was downloading WU's to no end

15:38 <Tank_Master> theres far more users on SETI than any other project

15:38 <Tank_Master> i think einstine is second

15:38 <emmar> even einstein was barreling through wu's

15:39 <emmar> with seti all I get is "communication deferred"

15:41 <PovAddict> SETI should hire me to do optimize their server software

15:41 <PovAddict> but they don't have any money :P

16:22 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:25 <emmar> does milkyway@home not do GPU wu's?

16:25 *** MTughan has quit IRC

16:28 <whynot> emmar: according to it does

16:28 <Romulus> Title: Applications (at

16:28 <whynot> however, what I know about that GPU busyness, shortly: it depends

16:30 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc

16:31 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

16:32 <emmar> it wont download any GPU wu's hmm

16:32 *** Caterpillar has joined #boinc

16:33 <MTughan> Is there any way to force BOINC to do only one upload at a time? My connection doesn't seem to like multiple uploads at the same time (or maybe it's just the speed, I'm not sure).

16:33 <whynot> emmar: I suggest turn it to milkyway@home message boards, probably, they could help

16:33 <MTughan> I've got BOINC limited to an upload speed of 20KB/s now, which is about 20-25% of what this connection is capable of, and that seems to be stable for the most part.

16:37 <whynot> MTughan: according to there're <max_file_xfers/> and <max_file_xfers_per_project/> options in cc_config.xml

16:37 <Romulus> <> (at

16:37 <whynot> MTughan: looks like what you need, although, those could be version dependant

16:38 <whynot> MTughan: and I don't know how to reach them from manager, if at all

16:38 <MTughan> whynot: Doesn't look like it, although they may be too broad for my needs... I don't care about downloads, just uploads.

16:38 <MTughan> And they'll be put in the cc_config.xml file, which I know where it is.

16:39 <MTughan> The problem I see is if I put max_file_xfers_per_project to one, and say BURP is uploading a 24MB file, it won't be able to download anything until that upload's done.

16:40 <MTughan> Unless it's still able to do 1 download and 1 upload.

16:40 <MTughan> &google calc 24MB / 20KB/s

16:40 <Romulus> MTughan: Google's calculator didn't come up with anything.

16:40 <MTughan> &math convert [calc 24 * 1024 / 20] seconds to minutes

16:40 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: The command "calc" is available in the Google and Math plugins.  Please specify the plugin whose command you wish to call by using its name as a command before "calc".

16:40 <MTughan> &math convert [math calc 24 * 1024 / 20] seconds to minutes

16:40 <Romulus> MTughan: 20.48

16:41 <MTughan> 20 minutes per upload...

16:41 <whynot> MTughan: firewall to the resque then, you always can shape your channel

16:42 <MTughan> whynot: That still doesn't prevent BOINC from trying to upload two files at once.

16:42 <MTughan> And BOINC already has a built-in speed limiter.

16:44 <whynot> MTughan: I still fail to see how it's my fault

16:44 <whynot> don't blame me, blame BOINC

16:44 <MTughan> I'll give max_file_xfers_per_project a go. If it allows downloads at the same time as uploads (ie, max of 1 upload AND 1 download), then that'll work.

16:45 <MTughan> whynot: It's not your fault, and I appreciate the suggestions. I'm just saying that they won't quite work.

16:45 <MTughan> I still blame my ISP for these problems because the connection is dropped from their end, not on our modem end.

16:45 <PovAddict> I think it might be easy to patch boinc for that...

16:46 <MTughan> Upload started, gonna try fetching some work...

16:46 <PovAddict> [17:33] <cdown> "If the downtime is over an hour, go to the blog" "Blog offline" ...

16:46 <MTughan> Heh, no downloads required, at least for BURP.

16:47 <MTughan> All right, that config option should work for now then. At least it'll do each one at max limiter speeds.

16:48 <whynot> from my experience, any BOINC micromassaging leads to Tourette Syndrome, at least

16:48 *** MTughan_ has joined #boinc

16:49 <MTughan_> All right, well the number of files transferred is not the problem.

16:49 *** MTughan has quit IRC

16:49 <PovAddict> lol

16:49 <PovAddict> maybe it's the upload speed?

16:49 *** MTughan_ is now known as MTughan

16:49 *** hippyphysicist has quit IRC

16:49 <MTughan> Must be the upload speed, yeah.

16:50 <PovAddict> what OS?

16:50 <Romulus> hmm... what OS are you running, PovAddict

16:50 <MTughan> I had it set at 20KB/s, BOINC said it got up to 26KB/s before the connection dropped, although I don't know if it averages the connection speed.

16:50 <MTughan> Windows 7.

16:50 <MTughan> I'm going to try limiting to 25KB/s.

16:50 * PovAddict wonders how reliable the speed limiter is

16:50 <PovAddict> it's part of libcurl though, not BOINC's fault if it fails :)

16:51 <MTughan> Interesting... It won't upload at all now, although I'm reconnected.

16:51 <MTughan> Aha. Error from upload server: "locked by file_upload_handler PID=15767"

16:52 <MTughan> Not sure exactly what I'm going to do with a PID, but hey, it gives me one. :P

20:39 <PovAddict> does anyone know what is about?

20:39 <PovAddict> I caught it on my webserver's log, as a referer

20:39 <PovAddict> when you go there, you're asked for a password, and it says you can request access by PM on, but I just want to know what it *is*
