The main internet link is having issues, we're trying to route around it. If you experience problems with uploads/downloads or browsing the site please have patience as we work with our ISP to fix the problem.

Just switched PC to Ubuntu and i can see nice upload speed - 1.2kBps, I am not sure if the result file would be uploaded before it's DL (32MB, DL 17:02 UTC).

The issue has been resolved and the main link is running again. It is possible that the congestion on the secondary link will last for a couple of hours still before it clears up.

If you are out of work it may help to restart BOINC a couple of times.
If you still have other BURP units running then you don't need to do anything - this should work itself out.

I have no problem with work, there is over 100 projects in the system. I have problem with completed BURP units and upload speed in combination with DL. There is 34% progress of the upload after 2:20, so I can estimate more than 5 hours to complete it. DL is after 1 hour.
Nice.
Very nice.

The thing about work was a reference to whether you (the general you, not just you you - others may be in a similar situation) had any running BURP workunits. Restarting BOINC in such a situation would reset the running unit(s) and would be a bad idea. The reason why it would make sense to restart BOINC right now would be to switch back to the primary network route rather than to continue using the overloaded and very slow secondary route (because it possibly re-fetches DNS data for the upload server when it restarts).

Furthermore we do not use hard deadlines here. If you miss the deadline then it isn't the end of the world.

The secondary link went down around midnight (UTC) but is now up again and things are looking better.

As part of a workaround for the original problem the number of workunits that a host could queue up for upload was increased from 2 to 4 temporarily. This number has now been reduced to 2 again.
