In a similar state. I've got 4 results on 2 different hosts that have been uploaded, but can't report them because according to the BOINC client, "Project is temporarily shutdown for maintenance."

2) Message boards : Number crunching : Request: Increase the Deadlines! (Message 3404)
Posted 17 Mar 2015 by computerguy09
I think we, as volunteers, need to understand that the project has a purpose beyond keeping us happy. It's to do science, and sometimes that need supersedes the need for us to be happy with every project.

I happen to want to contribute to the projects that I like, and that fit with my computing resources. If I find a project that doesn't fit those resources, I may choose not to participate much on that project. That's OK, because there are lots of folks out there that probably will be able to contribute.

That's what this is all about.

It also means that Qax and Jacob machines may or may not be able to handle the requirements of this project. If you're running lots of projects on a given machine or farm, then sometimes you'll get the short deadline WUs and sometimes you'll get the longer deadline ones.

Or to quote a Big Bang Theory reference to Star Trek I just heard on a replay; "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few"...

Just saying...

3) Questions and Answers : Windows : Unable to upload completed units (Message 1350)

I reported this in the Number Crunching forum as well.

However, to be accurate, you are able to upload the work units.

The error message you posted indicates that the server cannot accept your "reporting" of the uploaded workunits...

4) Message boards : Number crunching : Server status - can't attach shared memory (Message 1349)

I am completing WU and uploading them just fine.

However, when a client goes to report those finished WUs, it gets this error:

Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks Message from server: Server error: can't attach shared memory


Something at the server needs to be kicked or restarted.

5) Message boards : Number crunching : No work? (Message 1303)
Posted 14 Apr 2009 by computerguy09
Server status says over 71K WU waiting to send.

2 of my boxes are requesting work, but MM isn't sending any.

Have reset project - still no work...
