It means the WU you just finished has not been uploaded to the Stanford servers yet. No worries, it will periodically try until it's accepted.

I think it means you have a WU in que(sp?) to send to the Stanford servers.

EDIT:MSeng beat me to it...

Max is 10, but you should send before you get that many queued.... IF not than it starts overwriting the WU's.

I see. I never new fah queued up w/u's...I never told it too, so this must be an automatic thing.

I didn't know that....but the server(s) would have to be down for quite some time for me to queue up that many.

Yeah, it stores up the units if it can't send them back for some reason and will get a new unit in the next slot to start to work on... The client will continue to try and send the queued unit(s) every six hours until they go up.

There are 10 slots 0 - 9 so if you have units queued in
3 - 1 and you are working on one in 2 and it finishes and can't send any in, it will then delete the one in 3 and start a new one in there.

This is highly unlikely though as it takes quite a while to get back around the loop, and normally the units have been sent long before then.

What happens if it doesn't try to send the WU? I've had one sitting here for 2 days now and not once has it tried to send the WU. I've downloaded 2 and sent one back since, but this one just refuses to budge!

Perhaps a bad WU, or it actually sent and just left files behind ... Have you tried to manually send it? What is the IP of the server it is trying to go to?

It's that same one I told you about before. After I turned off my proxy (yes dumb old me had it running for two and a half days without realising) I restarted the client but instead of sending the WU, it just downloaded a fresh one and started folding away on that. It just refuses to send! It's a couple of days old now so I suppose I've gotten over the hurt of losing it. Now I'd just like to get rid of it one way or another.

Edit: I don't know how to manually send a WU and I think the IP was 144.

Restart the client with the flag -send all.

If it does not go, then the proxy being on when you got it has most likely messed something up with the IP it thinks it is supposed to be sending it to or something.

There is also a clear flag for the queue I think but I would have to check. Otherwise it will just be overwritten when the next unit rolls over into that queue spot.

Huh? It just shut down by itself... All I see there is that it was attempting to send and then the client exited.

Queue slot? I have no idea what that is! Thanks for guiding me thru this

Close the client and open a command window.

browse to the client exe and run it with the flag
- queueinfo

It should list the slots and tell you which slot you have a unit in queue at.

Yep...

Not sure what the fetching is in slot 02...

06 looks to be your current one going back to .110

You are in the middle of a unit, yes?

That's a pretty good one.

In this case it just means that the client is trying to recover a work unit from the server to work on.



MstrBlstr0

Yeah, but still doesn't explain why it was left there in the queue, unless the system crashed while getting a unit?

said by Ohairy1:
Do you find a "wuresults_0X" file on your machines? That's the data from work unit # 0X, that hasn't been returned. Without that, there is nothing to send.
In my case I didn't... There seems to just be occasions where there are ghost entries left in the queue.dat file.

These "ghost" entries will eventually be overwritten, but if you can't wait and are positive that it is not the current units slot that you are working in, you can run the client from a command window with the -delete XX flag [the xx being the unit that you want to delete from the queue.dat file.] I think this would also delete any possible result files corresponding to the slot that you are deleting as well (I need to verify this).

Not sure MB, but I think your issue is different than the Rockster.
Just a guess of course. Have to look and see if that result file is in the work folder.

Sooo, will this send by itself then? Like when it tries to send the next w/u it's munching on, or is this something I have to do manually?
