Looks like downloads for me are working again. Probably just jinxed myself but I'm just happy I have WUs again.

My work queue is full, and my transfer queue empty. It's gonna be a good day! :)

I found after a few hours of messing about this morning and such, that my 1700X, 2 3900X's, the 3950X and my 3970X all had some work. There's been a few times where clicking for your life, 'retry' actually does something but I found that it was a few jobs at a time... It was so frustrating. But on the plus side, I think my 3970X had over 300 jobs to do around 130pm UK time :)

However, the only bad thing with that, was kinda the power draw...... :eek: :laugh: (Laughs at himself for spending the cash to get a Threadripper, only to find he can't afford the electric.... :laugh: Its like buying a Ferrari and not being able to afford the petrol to run it on lol But then over here, that's like £1.80 ish a litre if you go for the 'Super' stuff :) I makes meself chuckle.... :laugh: )

You say that but its amazing how quickly these work units get finished... I don't think I saw many that where over 2 hours each there... Leave the PC on for a while, and less than 12 hours, you'll need filling up again!! :D :laugh:

Yep, and between that and WCG's recent instability, I changed this parameter in the device profile:

Basically gets me more WUs.

I find that works quite well if you are leaving the PC on every minute of the day, but with a few PCs and a few days sometimes of not getting much sun and so on, wow does it get cancelled and pulled soon enough by the server....

I recently remembered I installed BOINC a while ago and decided to start using it. I let my PC do its thing and complete some of the tasks. The problem is, on the WCG website and the BOINC manager it shows me that I haven't done any work, but under "properties" it says otherwise.

What am I doing wrong? Are tasks different from work?

The WCG website isn't reporting things correctly. Don't worry too much about it. If the client reports tasks complete and points earned, you're fine.

Thanks, a lot. I was thinking I had something set up incorrectly or maybe the client's connection to the website wasn't properly configured.

I think it sometimes takes a little time to 'wake up' as it where, so hopefully it won't be too long before you see some points showing up :) WCG isn't in the best shape its ever been in sadly...

The last couple of days, downloads have been fast and my queue has been full (1.5 days worth). I think it may have been so all week.

Still not got round to setting up the Coffee Lake 6C12T system, hopefully this weekend :)

Yeah, I've been pretty stable over the past several days. Maybe I'll finally get that Zen3 vs. RKL comparison after all.

Work's been flowing nicely, but sadly not so much GPU work which is a shame... More points that way :laugh: Been enjoying the fact every time I check a rig, I don't have to wait there for 20 minutes clicking retry to get one or two units downloaded... I just wish they'd get the points back up and running....

Is everyone having 'fun' with the downloads of new work units today?? It seems mine are doing their usual, 500 retry clicks and maybe a few getting downloaded... So frustrating :(

I powered up my three AMDs and all had download problems. I got some ONPGs and force downloaded enough to learn that these are the low yield ones, 250-350 points. I also got my new electricity bill and decided to got back to a few run hours per day again. :(

Its been a nightmare today, I've had to literally click the retry button every 5 minutes or so to even get tasks to come down... I had nearly 400 on my Threadripper rig, they've been eaten and uploaded without a problem but god getting any downloaded!! :( Such a struggle today. It's been OK last week.... When I've been thinking the queue is clear and I can carry on, more gets thrown in the queue and the process starts again.....

I had the same with all my rigs mate, I've been getting nothing but ONPGs more often than not and they don't last very long, maybe these are the ones that are having issues because of the throughput needed?? Some of the download speeds I've seen have been like 0.03kbps for some tasks but the bigger 10MB+ sized files seem to sometimes get nearly a 1MB/sec download speed if I'm lucky... Maybe I need a slower internet connection :D Or maybe more 1Gb lines coming in to the house??.....

@phill @mstenholm I've been getting a mix of ONPG's and MCM's in almost equal amounts. I trust you are kidding about needing a slower connection. I have DSL connection, and while the connection box is right across the street, and I get the maximum speed possible with a DSL connection, it really sucks when dealing with large file downloads.

Same thing here. I joined back up when it looked like the project stabilized, and I got a good stream of units for a few days, but now I'm having the same problems everyone else was having. I won't be spamming any update buttons, though. My machines will be here when they get things sorted out.

Is everyone having 'fun' with the downloads of new work units today?? It seems mine are doing their usual, 500 retry clicks and maybe a few getting downloaded... So frustrating :(
Still having that problem today. It's not to bad for me though - I can't work (ill health and disability) so have the time to spend clicking Retry every time I get a string of downloads.

@phill @mstenholm I've been getting a mix of ONPG's and MCM's in almost equal amounts. I trust you are kidding about needing a slower connection. I have DSL connection, and while the connection box is right across the street, and I get the maximum speed possible with a DSL connection, it really sucks when dealing with large file downloads.
I've had quite the upgrade to be honest @NastyHabits, I've gone from 30/5 to 950/200 so downloading bigger files now is a joy rather than painful... That said, when I was on the slower connection, WCG behaved... Wonder if I need to go back to it....?? :eek: :eek:
Yep - having the stupid download issue again:mad::cool:o_O
If I'm reading it correctly, WCG Forum Network Issue linky.... I get the idea, they are lacking in servers and bandwidth for the WCG Projects for its download capabilities. There's no mention of any particular fix time or goal or anything.... :(

Interesting. On the same network, one rig has a full queue, the other has absolutely nothing. :confused:

If I may make a suggestion... I read somewhere before that doing things like hammering the Update button, or setting WCG up to report completed work units immediately (thus forcing a connection every time a work unit is completed) are actually quite bad for the servers. Apparently, it's a lot easier for the servers to maintain a connection once in a while, whenever WCG is configured to communicate with the servers naturally, than it is to be constantly bludgeoned with forced updates, whether it's the user hammering the button or the advanced setting that forces WCG to communicate as soon as a work unit is completed. Maybe if we all let WCG run naturally it would work out better?
