Is the project dead or shutting down or something? I used to get a lot of work and now nothing for months..

Sigh...

Hmm, obviously the minimum quorum isn't applied here... maybe the two completed tasks don't agree? Mine is 5Days-5Hrs and 24.5% complete...

The WU is http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/workunit.php?wuid=9339591 and I am not sure it can complete before I have to go on the road again...

Oh well, we will see. I'm not the only one in this boat...

Would be nice if an admin would comment..

Well, 4 days later, 20% done... so looks like take 16 more days...

And then if it doesn't error out, I have to wait until 3 more people run it as well for points...

Sigh...

20 days to run a task on a 4.5GHz 2700K is an awful long time. It seems this sort of WU is contradictory to the BOINC concept of many smaller WU's passed to many computers...

Everybody is subject to power glitches, storm glitches, and just about any sort of thing that can clobber a WU and WASTE weeks of work...

Oh well...

looks like these WU's set to need 6 successes before points awarded... the one I am working on has had only two successes so far and looks to take from 7 to 14 days to run...

We will see...

Wow, I just got one of those LONG work units... 48 hours and still only 11.47% done... no other CAS tasks sent to any of my machines...

And I see so many times these long WU's marked as invalid too! I'm tempted to abort it...

Is any project admins around anymore?

SPAMMERS EVERYWHERE on boinc forums... would like to catch the people doing it.

In the meantime, when command to SUSPEND a CAS task, the manager says it's suspended but the task is actually still running.

:D

Posted 1791 days ago by Tex1954
Well, this one LONG WU was timed out by the system...



And at the time, this WU had run a LONG TIME! (like 56 hours and tons more to go)



Soo, I aborted it...

Somebody needs to adjust things for the future I think...

One of the two long WU's finished after about 28 hours in time I guess since it's in my pending tasks; the other is already late now...

Posted 1793 days ago by Tex1954
I too have a couple long WU's that look like they will miss deadlines. Both have run over 21 hours and one of them is barely over 6% done... The time remaining seems wrong.

I'll let them run anyway...

I experience the same problem on 3 machines but not all the time and not with every task. In fact, this morning I had one task running over 8 hours and on another machine, 2 tasks over 7 hours because of the "app_crash" warnings...

There is something not exiting properly and confusing windows 7 64b...

I mentioned this in the other compute error thread as well.

so go to the following 2 links and download and install

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=16217

I can confirm that this worked for me on one of my hosts that previously had compute errors. For some reason, I can't get the SDK package to install on the other host.

@NATE1: Good catch and thanks for the tip! :-)


This worked for me on my AMD systems as well. However, I still get App Crash messages sometimes on ALL systems... I've seen this before on another project and they finally got it fixed, but I have no idea how. It only happens when the application completes and exits...

I'm getting two weird problems.

#1: The new apps refuse to run on any of my AMD systems.

#2: The apps seems to complete, but exit poorly generating an App Crash on my intel system.

I have no idea what is going on, but all systems run Win7-64b...

Sigh...

I thought I had all the latest runtimes installed... have to check again I suppose..

I'm getting a lot of problems where for days sometimes the server isn't online and won't ping... also getting this now...


Win7-950

63144 CAS@home 7/27/2012 11:20:29 PM Requesting new tasks for CPU
63145 CAS@home 7/27/2012 11:20:31 PM Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
63146 CAS@home 7/27/2012 11:20:31 PM Server can't open log file (../log_fsw02/scheduler.log)


:)

PS: I hope it is just part of the server maintenance...
16) Message boards : Number crunching : Low credit (Message 525)
Posted 2017 days ago by Tex1954
I know this is an old topic, but for an example, eOn2 takes avg. 7 minutes to complete on my 6-C AMD CPUs and give 1.80 points avg.

So if you take those numbers and apply then to the time it takes CAS to complete, it comes out to about 8.765 points...

Soo, from a BOINC point of view with reference to BOINC managers point system, it's about right to just assign 8 points...

Fine by me so long as someone else isn't getting MORE!

LOL!

Posted 2019 days ago by Tex1954
Two of my four computers are still getting tasks... the other two lost connecting and detaching/reattaching does nothing... the server isn't assigning computer ID's nor sending configuration/task data...

It's been this way since maintenance...

Obviously, nobody is reading the forum info either...
