Download servers are crawling along today. Downloading an 133MB work unit at 3Kbps... 4 hours and only 40%.

Even the site is a bit laggy with the main BURP image in the top left taking a few seconds to load.

Server issues?

FYI - Session 1962 downloads are taking forever. My download of 233MB on 2/20/14 took over 12 hours. Web site seems slow today also.

Thanks!

You are lucky ;-) I'm downloading it at 1.5KBps. At this rate I think I'll need more 24h to have it downloaded. It feels like I'm back to the telephone modem days...

Bee bee bee boooo cshssssshhhhh...

Hopefully the fiber will land soon and alleviate all the congestion. Too bad the mirror network is in shambles, this would be a prefect situation to augment the main server.

Did something get disconnected? Right now the site is slow, as is downloading WU...

Quite interesting. I've been working on the server all day through the fiber link and haven't noticed any slowdowns at all. There is a lot of traffic going through the backup link, though - suggesting that something is indeed going wrong with the fiber link. I did a few speed tests and everything still seems fine with it, so this issue is a bit mysterious. Maybe it is something in between ISPs that is/was causing this.

If this happens again could I ask you to please try to restart your BOINC client a few times. If it suddenly bursts into full speed after a few restarts then it could narrow down the issue a bit.

Right now I'm downloading file2701833 (96MB) from session 2148 at 4~5KBps. At this speed it will take some time.

What I've tried:

Restart BOINC several times.
After exiting BOINC, run ipconfig /flusdns on command window (windows).
Reset Modem.
Restart computer.

After all this, same speed.

PS: For me, today the site is more responsive than yesterday.

PPS: I don't know if it helps, but I've gone to BOINCs client_state.xml, copied the download URL of the file and run it in "tracert". Here is the result:

C:\Windows\system32>tracert xmlrpc.burp.renderfarming.net

Thanks, that is definitely the wrong link - could you restart it a few more times? I think I may have it nailed down to a change made during the restart last Tuesday.

The loadbalancer is connection-based not DNS controlled so you can skip the /flushdns part. Anything that will make BOINC cut the current download should do.

Glad the problem was nailed down. I was away from the computer, so I didn't do anything, and now it's already crunching. Going to the Log I have a download failure, and then it downloaded in one minute :-)
