I hope that the problem with the extremely slow upload speed that many of your crunchers do see, but apparently not the staff of LHC@home, will come to an end but I have given up hope that it will happen anytime soon.
Compared with Rosetta that I am running now I can confirm that the upload speed to Rosetta in my case is 10 times higher\faster than it is on this project.

Cern-It is working on this problem.


I don't see that they are working on it. They even can't see the problem

Download and upload times are like usual on our BOINC clients.

Could this be local, or have been a temporary storage issue? As far as we can see from our monitoring data, I/O is normal over the last 7 days.

Maybe the problem is related to the VirtualBox? I was using that while running work units here.
I have left this project now for Rosetta and have no problem with upload\download now.

Maybe I will try this Project again if\when I build a Linux based computer.

Yes download works ok now but upload is still a disaster, only 15 KBps while uploading ATLAS result file.

Have tested:
Boinc -> Activity -> Network interrup and than Network always enabled.
Than Download is new connected and running with normal speed and finishing.
Have no explanation why. More info from People who know more about it.


Thank you maeax!
That made a big difference, download now on is over 1000 kBps.

Thank you members of this message boards for your support anyway.

Download have the same time as a task need for running (2 hours!).
But, only in Wondows not in native Linux!


Interesting.
How long does it normally take to download an ATLAS work unit under Linux?

When I look at the transfers page in the BOINC manager I do not see any upload file when the LHCb task is finished.
Does a finished LHCb workunit not result in a upload file?

I have aborted all LHCb work units for now on this computer but have 1 wu running on an other computer that has been running for 13 hours and reached 74%

Wonder why this 'Error while computing' occurred, I have run other work units under LHCb before that worked just fine.

VirtualBox seams to result in much higher demand and use of RAM to be able to make efficient use of the CPU, my computer with 6-core Intel cpu and 16GB ram
currently use 13GB to run 5 LHCb Simulation and the CPU load is only 20 - 40%.

I think I have seen all that I need to see regarding how VirtualBox work with BOINC but I will continue struggle and try to make it work better on one computer and delete the 'Virtual Crap' on my other boxes.

Thank you Crystal Pellet & gyllic.
Yes I can se that the CPU usage is only 30% with 3 8-core tasks running but that the memory use almost hit the roof.
I think I will by 16GB mor RAM.

@ gyllic when you say "one core task" is that an ATLAS one core task you are referring to?

I'm now able to run 3 x ATLAS (8 cpu) work units simultaneously which use 65% of the CPU and 88% RAM or 28GB.
Seams that I need to have more RAM to be able get full load on the CPU while running ATLAS work units only.
