I have currently running this project and its all fine except one thing
upload data amount
here is monthly report
address download upload total
cern.ch 6.58 GB (1.5 %) 25.9 GB (29 %) 32.5 GB (6.1 %)

as you can see it does 29% of my upload traffic and I have either terminate the project or ask you to pack results on client side if possible?
And these numbers are only for small amount of tasks we've executed recently
Could compressing data be an option in settings?

I suppose all those years ages ago noone cares about those amounts, but why the difference disbalance between incoming data and outcoming data is so huge?
Anyway I think some action either on project side or whole boinc side could be done to pursue the balance and minimise traffic.

Just a guess - I think that traffic may be from your participation in the vLHC project

I examined a couple of work units. The downloaded files (zipped) are about 349 KB, while the uploaded result files (not compressed) are about 44 KB. Simple zipping of the results reduces the size by almost 75%.

Zipping and unzipping take so little computing time that I think compressing the results for transfer would be justified.

You might make that suggestion to the Boinc discussion group and they could perhaps include in the next version so ALL projects could use it.

Yes exactly! It seems that LHC doesn't know it's in there either!
