Re: Slow WU downloads & failed transfer [140.163.4.231]

My last WU from mskcc downloaded in 1 hour (for a 16.30 MiB WU, a better time than normal), and had no issues with transfer failure. I'm shutting the FAHC off for now, but I'll see if there are further issues when I fold tomorrow.

EDIT: Can confirm that speed improvement seems somewhat consistent. Better than last time, but still has 1+ hour of downtime between each WU. Better than the longer downtimes I had earlier, though.

Hi folks - we've spoken to our networking people, no problems they can see - no errors or drops, plenty of bandwidth left (we're only doing 50mbps on a 10gbps port now). Pings and traceroutes are blocked from outside.

Are you still experiencing problems? I'd like to get a sense of how many people are still having trouble, if this is something on our side and if we should keep investigating.

Thanks for your patience!

10 hours worth of folding download failures. I've had to set up my system to run BOINC on downtime periods due to the simple lack of GPU WUs.

Many messages cut for brevity.

I wonder if you could force a different route by using a VPN and could that help?

@ OntosChalmer thanks a lot for the new report! I'm passing onto the networking folks to have them investigate further...

For now I've restarted the WS - which has been known to help temporarily.

@ OntosChalmer - I restarted the WS an hour ago, and now we've rebooted the machines as well - would you mind seeing if the problems still persist?

It's worth a try, but I'd expect that you'd still get to nwrk01-nj.us.windstream.net and it would still be the same after that ... where we have no useful information.

I'd really like to see what changes in that traceroute when things are working right. I understand that campus servers can be configured to drop pings, so the timeout messages are not necessarily indicative of the problem.

I wonder if an outgoing traceroute from the server 140.163.4.231 itself starts with the same two hops.

Code: Select all

74.8.57.6
xe0-0-0-0.pe07.nwrk01-nj.us.windstream.net [40.128.249.132]
and would it look any different from 140.163.4.232?

SOMETHING is throttling the downloads after a period of (fairly) good operation. Maybe there's a Virtual Machine routing issue we're not seeing from here.

They're dropping pings and traceroutes - you won't get anything from those.

Appears the outbound are also blocked.

Can confirm that there are no improvements.

Cannot currently afford a reliable VPN, so cannot test with one.

Just fyi mine is 5 euro a month for up to 5 devices at the same time and I'm very happy with it mullvad.net I have it on my phone too, which is a good idea if you use unsecured wifi anywhere.

Re: Slow WU downloads & failed transfer [140.163.4.231]

it's still very difficult to get new GPU WU for me, especially for 16MB WU.
FAH Log: https://pastebin.com/raw/HyahHspW
in normal cases, what is the download time for 16MB GPU WU? if it's expected to be slow then i can only blame my router/ISP for dropping my connection.

No, you can't blame your router/ISP. The server code is designed to drop connections that have been connected too long. When SOMETHING makes the download take "too long" that's what is expected to happen. The bottom line is that somebody needs to figure out why this server is performing so poorly.

I presume you have no trouble opening the banner pages on http://140.163.4.231/ or http://140.163.4.231:8080/

In the log you posted I see no entries for max_packet_size, so you're apparently using the default setting.

Just for kicks, what happens if you add a max_packet_size setting of 9 for the GPU slot and you wait for the next assignment to be downloaded?

The fact that it apparently recovers doesn't change the fact that it actually happened.

I don't remember seeing that max_packet_size in FAH guide before, can you point me to the details? Edit: Sorry, I saw the link in your signature viewtopic.php?p=261088&f=24#p261088

The fact that it apparently recovers doesn't change the fact that it actually happened.
I set FAHClient to start automatically when Windows starts (using Task Scheduler, set to run whether user is logged on or not), I have no proof but I believe this error happens because Windows hasn't connected to network yet when FAHClient starts (after logon, I also get the Windows error message saying that my local network drive is offline, but in fact I can still access it normally). Sometimes I also get that error when there are pending Windows Updates.

I just see new FAH version 7.5.1, let me update first.

Edit: just uninstalled old ver and installed 7.5.1, let me monitor it and get back to you later.

It sounds like you're trying to somehow overcome the Windows restriction that GPUs can only be used by FAH when the FAHCore is running in the memory-space of the logged on user by (re-)starting FAHClient when user A logs off an user B logs on. I don't know if anybody has done that successfully. I'm sure that Microsoft had a reason to build that restriction into Windows.

Have you though about Linux -- which is designed with genuine multi-user support built in.
