00:01 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

00:01 *** MTughan_ has quit IRC

00:02 <MTughan> I still can't let BOINC upload at more than 20KB/s though.

00:02 <MTughan> Does anyone know how BOINC uploads files? Is it through HTTP, or something else?

00:04 <PovAddict> pretty much plain old HTTP POST

00:04 <PovAddict> *might* be HTTPS for WCG

00:07 <MTughan> I've got to call my ISP again. They couldn't detect anything going wrong on the lines before, so they were wanting to know how this uploads. Now I can tell them.

00:09 <PovAddict> have you tried doing an HTTP upload to somewhere else?

00:09 <PovAddict> put a 10MB file on a megauploadoid site

00:10 <MTughan> I had my laptop hooked directly up the modem before and managed to crash the connection with a Dropbox upload through the website.

00:11 <PovAddict> there you go

00:25 <MTughan> I wish BOINC had a way to suspend individual uploads... Or at least a proper way to limit the number of uploads at a time.

00:26 <MTughan> I'd rather have one upload finish at 20KB/s at a time rather than two at 10KB/s. Means if the project has a quota, upload space is freed quicker, and I get more tasks quicker.

00:29 <PovAddict> and you can't do that via cc_config?

00:29 <MTughan> It apparently doesn't work.

00:29 <MTughan> I have <max_file_xfers_per_project>1</max_file_xfers_per_project> but it's still sending 2 files at a time to BURP.

00:30 <PovAddict> interesting

00:30 <MTughan> 6.13.12

00:31 <MTughan> That's been in place since before my last restart, so it's not like BOINC doesn't see it.

00:33 <PovAddict> just looked at the code (possibly very old, I haven't updated my local copy) and it looks sane

00:33 <MTughan> And yet, I'm seeing two 10KB/s uploads to BURP right now.

00:33 <PovAddict> it looks like max transfers=N means max N uploads and max N downloads, they are limited independently

00:34 <MTughan> Fair enough, I like that better anyway.
