1) Message boards : Number crunching : can\'t upload completed work? (Message 3004)
Posted 13 Apr 2007 by Profile UBT - Timbo
About the only thing I can think of is doing a manual "Update" on the Projects Tab, or if they are stuck on the Transfer Tab then do "Retry Now".

Thanks for the reply.

Yup - did all of that (1st thing one does)...but still the client couldn't connect to RALPH upload servers.

Have left it for a few days and two of the three have now uploaded on their own, with no intervention....but in both cases, well after the with a quorum of 1, these weren't given any credits :-(

1st WU:
2nd WU:
3rd WU:

(I'll abort the 3rd one now, as I won't get credit for it and another cruncher has uploaded a result anyways).

One wonders why issues like this still abound.....sure enough RALPH is an Alpha project...but if WUs are provided, one hopes that the upload servers are going to be available most of the time to accept completed work. Rather frustrating when the servers cannot be "seen" by the host client...!

Hi all,

I've got a problem with the following three WUs:

Result ID
click for details Work unit ID
click for details Sent Time reported
or deadline
explain Server state
explain Outcome
explain Client state
explain CPU time (sec) claimed credit granted credit

In each case, the PC can't seem to upload the finished WU.....

Have tried closing and restarting BOINC. Then did a complete reboot. But still nothing (from this project) can be uploaded. Other BOINC projects (on same host) are fine !!

Any ideas?

Hi Rom,

As per isntructions in the other thread, have aborted the following RALPH 4.93 WU's as they were stuck at 1%:

22/03/2006 14:53:43|ralph@home|Unrecoverable error for result HB_BARCODE_30_1a19A_352_138_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)
22/03/2006 14:53:48|ralph@home|Unrecoverable error for result HB_BARCODE_30_1a68__352_138_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)
22/03/2006 14:53:55|ralph@home|Unrecoverable error for result HB_BARCODE_30_1ctf__352_137_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)
22/03/2006 14:54:00|ralph@home|Unrecoverable error for result HB_BARCODE_30_1ctf__352_136_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)
22/03/2006 14:54:11|ralph@home|Unrecoverable error for result HB_BARCODE_30_4ubpA_352_135_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)

Have 2 more that are progressing:

22/03/2006 14:54:23|ralph@home|Pausing result HB_BARCODE_30_5croA_352_136_0 (left in memory)
22/03/2006 14:56:02|ralph@home|Pausing result HB_BARCODE_30_1bk2__352_137_0 (left in memory)

and now both are at around 37% at:

Stage: "Ab initio".
Model: 95
Step: 325,000+

- had to change the CPU resource to 2 days (from 4 days), as these 2 WU's are preventing me crunching for any other project - but happy to help with 48 hours of solid RALPH crunching if it helps figure out the problem.

Now have some 4.94 WU's
