If you want people to run your project, then fix your crappy server already! Can't even download a handful of WUs without them going into back-off mode and retrying again later, just to go into back-off mode again.

You have a severe download and upload issue. You have know this for a while. You can't blame it on any competition or Sprint right now. Only your crap server or network connection is to blame.

Please do something already so we can process your WUs without having to jump through hoops to do it.

I am also having lots of trouble uploading and downloading any work units. can take half a day to download or upload even a small number of work units.
Windows seems worse than Linux but that just might be when I am looking at the computers.

Backing off for many hours before doing one or two work units then it backs off again.

There seems to be a issue, just where I don't know.

Thanks
Conan

I'm currently getting WUs, can process them and they can be uploaded and getting credit.
BUT, the overall creditcount for my account is not adding up! Whats the problem?

Same here for over 2 days now.
Everything works fine for me, but as you said, no credits...

Well, maybe it's time to move over to other projects as the admin doesn't seem to give a heck about the whole problem!
And it's not the first time...

See Ya, Mankka*

Me too. I've set No New Work for now, as I don't want to crunch and possibly never get credit for it. Hopefully this will be sorted out.

Man of all the threads to bump and use for server issues - one that was started with an openly hostile / antagonistic title. I made this offer over 6 months ago on another forum(which nobody in the BOINC community ever took me up on), but here's a copy/paste-

Icecold 6 months ago wrote:
if anybody here(in the US, outside of the US would probably not be feasible due to shipping/customs) has an internet connection with good upload speed, I'd be happy to donate a PC if they're willing to let it sit there using power and internet, reboot it when necessary, etc. My upload speed is too low to feasibly host a project server, and Fios or anything with symmetrical internet speeds is not available in my area.


The offer stands(and it wasn't going to be legacy hardware), if somebody wants to host it and manage it either at their home or a colo site I'll cover any necessary hardware costs.

But, this seems like a separate issue from their underpowered sever, and could maybe deserve a separate thread for this issue.

Icecold
I remember your proposal.
Thank you very much!
Unfortunately, no one has responded so far.

I have a colleague in the USA.
I wrote to him, but he did not agree to take over and manage the server.

PS. Continuation of the topic, see here

I want to remind everyone that the ODLK project has a branch ODLK1
https://boinc.multi-pool.info/latinsquares/

Please connect to the ODLK1 project if you are not yet involved in this project.
The ODLK1 project accomplishes the same task as the ODLK project. Therefore, you will help our common project.
We are currently working on generating new WUs in the ODLK1 project, there will be more, especially in the odlk3 Application.

PS. Everyone has problems with BOINC projects. They are resolved as far as possible.
You shouldn't be so aggressive.
If you do not like the situation in the project, leave it silently. Your right is to participate or not to participate in the project.

We don't a new project as a band-aid, we need solving the problems on this project.
WUs are being processed, credit is calculated for them on the user account page, but no credit has actually been uploaded -the stats files keep having the same values since September 4 2021:
look here.

I understand your problem.
But! I can't do anything because I am not working with the project server.
The project server is configured by the Progger administrator.
The project server and the Progger administrator are 500 km away from me. And Progger doesn't write me letters.
He's not answering you here either.
I'm sorry.
I can not help you.

If it helps, team totals and individuals host totals appear to be being updated, just not the users overall total.

I doubt the credits are being lost as simply adding up each of your host numbers will give the right overall number.
