Message 97431 - Posted: 17 Jun 2020, 2:07:47 UTC

i've been running rosetta for years on a mac mini w/macos 10.7, until the switch to ssl.

i switched the url (trivial), deleted and re-added rosetta, and i think i updated to a newer version of boic. and now all of a sudden i get a "computing error" on every single work unit, with 0 cpu time used.

what broke?

Are you able to look at the BOINC log file? If so, check for signs that at least one of the input files for each of those tasks could not be downloaded from the server.

I'd suggest detaching from the project again, reboot to make sure everything is deleted & cleared out, then re-attach again (using the new URL).

You have a "Signal 11" error for every work unit, that's on your end

"signal 11, or translated a segmentation error pointing to a problem with your memory, virtual memory (page file) or that it's a bad batch of tasks. However, if you're the only one returning these as an error and consistently over two or more projects, you best go look into a problem with the RAM or page file on that computer"

While a segfault can be caused by faulty hardware, WU's consistently segfaulting right away with no CPU time used points to a software problem.

I had this problem on one of my raspberry pis. Turns out I forgot to add the extra lines to cc_config.xml to enable arm support.

Maybe this helps?

thanks for the suggestion, but i'm running a mac mini (macos 10.7) with an intel i7 processor. since a significant number of other users are probably using the same cpu chip, it isn't likely.

i wouldn't be "screaming" either, if i assumed that the work units just weren't coming in because of the covid lockdown, or i was too busy crunching other projects or with other stuff.

i'll post a log file below, once i figure out how to do that.

Message 97614 - Posted: 25 Jun 2020, 17:11:54 UTC - in response to Message 97436.  

that would make sense if the computer were showing any signs of misbehaving, or if i hadn't been running rosetta successfully for years, right up to the ssl changeover. neither the ram nor the paging file are likely to have changed at exactly that moment, and without affecting anything else.

i'm guessing that it's a software setting somewhere, or an incompatibility with my antique operating system, rather than a a hardware problem. but if i'm wrong, i'll buy you a cappuccino.

Presently, there are no R@h work units available for download. More coming soon (as is always the case).

Message 98058 - Posted: 13 Jul 2020, 22:14:26 UTC - in response to Message 97644.  

thanks, that’s good to know.

in the meantime, i notice messages in the log about “daily quota of 1 exceeded”.

it’s really, really hard to test whether things are working when i have to wait 24 hours to try again...

so how can i request that this daily quota thing be increased to something more reasonable, like maybe *2*?

That’s probably due to all the failed tasks.

Like you say: “something broke” – but it’s not clear what. I’d suggest shutting down and uninstalling BOINC, removing the data directory /Library/​Application Support/​BOINC Data, then reinstalling and starting from clean. To start with, set Use at most 13% of the CPUs, Store at least 0.1 days of work and Store up to an additional 0 days of work, to download a single task and avoid your machine being swamped with tasks that might all fail.

Each time you return Valid work, the daily limit is doubled.
