I believe it just means that they have not yet started to run. Are there other tasks (perhaps from other BOINC projects) that are running now? Have you set the preferences to limit the hours when BOINC can run? Which host are you talking about?

Past days the tasks are running normally and It doesn't run other BOINC projects. I have 5 (clone) system with CentOS and in all the task are in uninitialized state.

Your runtime preference will not effect when tasks run. BOINC Manager decides that, and is unaware of the runtime preferences.

Looks like your systems have 4 cores, and 4 GB of memory. What happens if you have the CPU preference to use at most 50% of the CPUs?

I have adjusted the "Use at most 50 % of the CPUs" and in one host reset the project:

boinccmd --project "https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/" reset

but unlucky the tasks continue uninitialized:

boinccmd --get_tasks

The log says that for R@h you are "...using an old URL". Yet the project URL has not changed. What URL did you attach to?

I'm using this URL in order to attach to Rosetta:

boinccmd --project_attach "https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/"

What's the correct URL?

Ok the URL it's with http not https, I have detach:

boinccmd --project https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/ detach

And again attach to http ...

# boinccmd --project_attach "https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/" "..."

I try to resume:

# boinccmd --project https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/ resume

But again all tasks it's uninitialized:

Message 94387 - Posted: 13 Apr 2020, 22:01:52 UTC - in response to Message 94345.  

On the website, in your profile, there is a link for Rosetta@home preferences. In there, you can define up to 4 venues. If you click on your hosts, you can see the "venue" shown in the "location" column. When you look at the Rosetta preferences for the venue of the host, is the box checked for "Use CPU"? (it should show a checkmark). In fact, for R@h, this box should be checked for all venues you have defined.

I see your hosts all have credit. When did they stop working? Do you have a cc_config or app_config file setup? If so, please show what is in them.

Hi, thanks for the answer. I have defined the work venue and assigned to all my hosts.




The tasks were running normally during 3 days approximately. The files cc_config and app_config are not present.

So, is that host, 4062010, either the one you changed the cpu limit to 50% on or the one you changed the host url on?

In your preferences, (again, by venue of machine) have you setup specific time periods during the day when BOINC is allowed to use the CPU?

A quick search shows you seem to be on the right track.


SGAI-CSIC, make sure use CPU is selected.
Make sure no settings that block BOINC from processing work are selected- eg Use at most xx % of the CPUs, Use at most x % of CPU time should both be 100%, Suspend when computer is on battery, Suspend when computer is in use, Suspend when non-BOINC CPU usage is above ---%, Compute only between --- should all be unselected/blank.

Edit- oh, and any local settings will override the web based ones.

It's very strange, all my hosts are in the same system and boinc configuration, and now only one it's working on tasks. All the hosts are in the venue "work", and these are my preferences:

Computing preferences:






Rosetta@home preferences



what can be wrong?

From what you've posted there i can't see any reason for Tasks not running. The default CPU Target time is 8 hours, but i can't see why 24 hours should cause things to not run.
I don't know how you would do it for a headless system, but you can select which functions get recorded to the Event log.

I'd exit BOINC, give it 10ssec or so and restart it. Then post the contents of the Event log here to see what messages are there, and someone with more experience might have a suggestion as to which options would be best to enable sorting this out.


One more thought- if you click on Details for the problem system & then compare them to a working system, down the bottom there is some info on when the system can process work (only you can see it on your system, not others). The ones of interest-
                             Fraction of time BOINC is running 99.91%
While BOINC is running, fraction of time computing is allowed 100.00%

Thank you for your help, I try to stop boinc daemon a restart again and I see these messages in the log, perhaps it's a bug of the boinc-client on CentOS?

It looks like you have 4-core systems with 4GB of memory. Try setting one system to use at most 25% of the CPUs, and set another to use at most 50% of the CPUs.

Some WUs are reserving more than a GB of memory to ensure they run well (once you get them to start running).

I would suggest adding one or more other BOINC projects to these systems, where the WUs require less memory. The BOINC Manager will then find a mix of WUs that can run with the resources available.
