I think I could handle 1 GB files without a problem; maybe even more.
But if that is too much from some, why not offer an option?

Same for me...I did not see any difference in performance of the tasks and download for me is unlimited, so a gig, no problem. I was not aware of the "problem". But yes, a gig is way to much for a file from BOINC projects

Message 45588 - Posted: 1 Nov 2021, 17:30:25 UTC

seems that now we are back to file sizes as they were before the recent increase.
I can see download files with about 250MB (whereas before it was 1.9GB and then 1GB), and vm_image.vdi filesize about 3.5GB (which before was about 5.2GB)

With this, I could easily change from concurrently running 3 tasks 4 cores ea. to 4 tasks 3 cores ea. on my 32GB Ramdisk.

The question though is whether these current file sizes will stay for a while, or whether they might increase again after a few days. I guess no one will be able to tell ?

well, meanwhile I can answer the question myself:
A few minutes ago, downloaded file sizes were again 1GB, and vm_image.vdi filesize about 4GB.

So, the situation seems to be rather volatile.

More 1.12GB task downloads.

Same for me (1.12 GB) on native ATLAS. That is no problem on the file transfers, but it makes the project folder 46.5 GB.

I have plenty free on a 500 GB SSD, but it could be an unexpected problem for some.

Jim, you say it. I am running BOINC on a 32GB Ramdisk, so it makes a difference.
Not only that with the 1.12GB download file, the subsequent file "ATLAS.root_0" in the slot directory is same size (i.e. 1.12GB), but also the vm_image.vdi is almost 1GB larger.
So yesterday, when I noticed too late that 1.12 GB files were downloaded instead of 243 MB files, with the consequences mentioned above my system crashed after a while, due to lack of disk space :-(

So, I changed the setting (number of tasks running concurrently, plus number of CPU cores per task) - and since last night, the download files have changed back to 243 MB.
I bet they will change to 1.12 GB by tomorrow :-)
