Message 56279 - Posted: 14 Jan 2021 | 4:24:10 UTC

Hello all, wish you all had a good holiday and staying safe and well.

As you know and may not know, China has a GFW, and with my personal experience I can confirm that the address GPUGRID.net or the destination server behind it is actually blocked in China. So volunteers in Mainland China would always need to add 'GPUGRID.net' to the proxied/VPN list to get and upload work units.

Since I have not received work units for days, and there is no message in BOINC mentioning what is going on, I would like to enquire if the server address for work unit distrubution has been changed and still blocked in China? If so, it would be helpful if admins can share the server address?

Or perhaps it's just because there is no new work unti atm?

Thank you all.

you're not getting work because there is no work to give.

the server hasnt changed. if you were getting work before, you will again when work starts flowing again.

我认为gpugrid没有完全被墙,只是用VPN会更快。
关于最近没有任务,是因为上一批的处理接近尾声,需要处理完最后几个任务,做完(可能存在的)收尾工作,才会放出下一批。
你可以查看https://www.gpugrid.net/server_status.php来关注最后几个任务的情况以及有没有新的任务放出——目前上一批还剩最后1个。

I think gpugrid is not completely blocked, it's just faster to use VPN.
About no tasks recently, it's because the previous batch of tasks is coming to an end, and the next batch will be released only after finishing the last few tasks and some finishing work.
You can see https://www.gpugrid.net/server_status.php to find out if there are any new tasks released.

Sorry, not good at English.

另外,你可以在boinc客户端>选项>其他选项里设置代理,而不用考虑具体的地址。
这样在代理设置中添加地址就只是让你访问网站快些。

Btw, you can you can set the proxy in BOINC client > options > other options, regardless of the specific server address.
In this way, adding the address to the proxy settings just makes it faster for you to visit the website.

谢谢回复。gpugrid.net 这个域名本身可能没有被墙,但是 gpugrid.net 好像是使用 Amazon AWS ,而其在中国大陆的访问性基本等于被墙了。不通过代理基本无法下载上传工作单元,严重影响计算效率。

Thank you for reply. The domain gpugrid.net itself may not be GFWed. But it seems that gpugrid.net is using Amazon AWS, of which the accessibility is similar to being GFWed in Mainland China. Without proxy, it's basically impossible to transfer WUs and seriously decrease the computation effiency.
