Work servers 140.163.4.231 & 128.252.203.4 downloads broken

Post by TristanChen » Mon Aug 06, 2018 6:33 pm

Came home today from work to find 8 out of 9 machines stuck downloading work. For some reason, the work servers' data transfer rate have slowed to a crawl. Downloading a 16MB work unit was taking 3hrs or more and/or simply timing out. Is anyone else having this problem?!

Just to test my network, I reinstalled BOINC-GPUGrid on these computers, and they were able to download 130MB work units in roughly 90secs... Now running GPUGrid on all machines until this issue is resolved...

that's not enough information. Which servers were exhibiting this slow download?
This topic is "issues with a specific server" for a reason ... you need to specify which server(s) are potentially having problems.

I downloaded 16mb from server 140.163.4.231 in about 2 seconds a couple of hours ago.

It might be the timeout bug ... Restart the client (easiest way is to reboot since it doesn't always exit when hit by the timeout bug).

Dude mines been doing the same thing for a few days. I have 4 rigs with 2 cards each. Usually only one of the 2 cards gets stuck downloading and when I look at the log it looks like it took forever to download like 25% of the WU and then it freezes and never finishes download. I don't see why there isnt a timeout setting to try and reject the download and try again if it takes longer than a minute to download.

There is a check, it works most of the time. The bug is that sometimes the client does not detect that a network upload or download has stalled.

As for just a minute, that would be much too small an interval for many folders' systems. With the current client it will recheck after about 15 minutes.

Altogether though, just as with the first poster you have provided next to no usable information. At the minimum we would need data as to when the downloads failed and which server was being connected to by the client to get a new WU.

Mod edits: removed auto-download link, copied & posted log here per directions in Welcome Topic, removed excess status lines - j

Theres a log file of one of my rigs. One card kept folding, the other froze on the download.

Re: Work servers downloads broken

There is some kind of an undiagnosed problem that seems to be affecting the server 140.163.4.231

starting at
23:10:31:WU01:FS00:Assigned to work server 140.163.4.231
23:10:31:WU01:FS00:Requesting new work unit for slot 00: RUNNING gpu:0:GP102 [GeForce GTX 1080 Ti] 11380 from 140.163.4.23
23:10:31:WU01:FS00:Connecting to 140.163.4.231:8080

a WU begins downloading extremely slowly an eventually hangs at
23:27:27:WU01:FS00:Download 14.01%

In the same log, you have many other WUs downloaded from several servers, including that particular one and in all of the other cases, the download (or upload) completed within 5 to 10 seconds. I wish I knew a way to determine why that one download was different than all the others.

Besides Bruce's comments, I would suggest upgrading to the current version of the client. There were a number of networking improvements made since 7.4.4 which was released nearly 4 years ago.

So this is the famous timeout bug, existing since the first versions of v7 client, and still present in 7.5.1 ... :D

Weird that it wouldn’t be on the current version. They are Linux machines that were setup only months ago straight from the FAH website. Not sure why this issue just started now, they have been running fine for awhile.

I’ll have to check if there is a newer Linux client when I get home

The bug may still be present, but in my experience the 7.5.1 client recovers from a stalled download or upload much more often. It does take about 15 minutes before kicking in sometimes and restarting the connection. Worked quite well last week when my DSL connection kept dropping, finally found the corroded phone wire connection caused by a week of very humid, rainy weather.

So I checked the version on all my rigs and it says 7.4.4 but when I try to download the current version, the exact way I installed it a few months ago it just says the new version is already installed. Must be some thing with the linux 7.5.1 that doesnt update the about section of the client?

And yep got home from a 2 day trip and half my cards were cold, not doing crap. This needs to get fixed asap

Checking the logs and editing on which servers the download froze on after about 20% just like before:
140.163.4.231

I assume the log you posted earlier has been updated. Please show us the current version.


What toes "top" or the equivalent tell you? Is a user named "fahclient" running? Does it have rwx permissions to the files in /varl/lib/fahclient?

Try "sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient start"
Presumably it will tell you "fahclient seems to be already running with PID *"

Well I have everything on a linksys switch now instead of 2 chained together routers and they are freezing much slower. Maybe 1 every 12 hours instead of 3-4. Not sure if they are fixing anything or the hardware switch did anything. Waiting to see if it gets better on it's own. It ran fine for months so it shouldnt really have been anything on my end.

Yea well today, I've had to restart like 5 cards. They just keep freezing on the download just like on the log posted above. This is ridiculous. I'm about to just sell it all and be done with it
