Task 20901466 (Workunit 11361856) is currently running on one of my machines with about 19 hours left to go, and is showing 10 trickles for this task on my account's tasks web page.

However, those SAME 10 trickles are still showing in BM's transmit queue and each time it tries to re-upload them it gets the error:

"Temporarily failed upload of <filename.zip>: connect()failed

"Internet access ok - project servers may be temporarily down"

There have been no interruptions to this task, and other tasks are uploading trickles with no issues.

Why are they still in the queue if they've been transmitted?

Do I abort these queued transfers?

That model is from the recent East Asia batch #686, which appears to have been withdrawn. I’ll send an e-mail to the project staff to ask formally what should be done with those models that are running.

Thanks for reporting this.

Apparently the batch was withdrawn because there was an upload server availability problem. I suppose the server is not being run by Oxford but by the participating research institution. So you could wait until the server is fixed (i.e. not by Oxford) at which point the intermediate Zips should upload automatically. The final Zips probably go to Oxford and will upload fine.

The batch will be resubmitted when all servers are working - and if you still have a problem uploading then post back here. Otherwise just abort the model.

The model finished but all of the uploads were stuck. I aborted the uploads.

Thanks for investigating this.
