I would like to see a sticky thread that is read-only for the general user that would contain only alerts from the Rosetta staff to abort jobs or similar advisories.

I could subscribe to the thread and know that the email advisory was important.

I support this request!

I simply don't have time to read all the threads and find the scattered warnings about bad or (possible) problemgiving wu's.

I just had to abort 2 HBLR_1.0_xxx wu's that held 2 pc hostage for days. And just now, when I reported these errors, I find that somewhere in a thread on this board there is this warning by Rhiju:
Please abort these jobs. The workunits with the following names appear to be causing problems on some machines:

HBLR_1.0_XXX_ROT_TRIALS_TRIE_449...

Its a bit strange, since we didn't see this problem in our Ralph tests. But just to be safe, go ahead and abort!


And that is a ridiculous situation. These kind of warnings should reach all of us as quick as posible and not only those who have the time to scan all of the treads.

I agree. WU's that need to be aborted NEED to be listed in ONE convenient place, that can be bookmarked and checked easily.

A purge function would reduce the need for this greatly - is that a possibility?

I do as well. Seems very easy to implement. So .....?

Another important improvement to the community could be An One Place list of common error messages. I posted four days ago this message 14465. It is very silent.

One of the pc's I just freed from a 55 hour loop caused by a HBLR_1.0_xxx wu was at 1,26% after 2 hours on a FACONTACTS_RECENTER wu. Quiet worried because of the previous time waste I used the search and found this:

Posted by Rhiju on 22 april
I'm stopping the sendout of these jobs. For some machines,
there appears to be an incompatibility of 5.01 with these
jobs. Please abort FACONTACTS_RECENTER jobs and HBLR1.0 jobs.


I found a total of 14 of these wu's in the queue of 4 different pc's. So this time I can abort these wu's on time, but what about the next...?

Yes, for instance now that 5.06 has been released, should we abort workunits in progress under the earlier 5.01 application?

I am guessing no, that the 5.01 workunits are valuable too, and we should process them to completion, but it would be nice for a confirmation. :)

Yes, go ahead and keep crunching 5.01 workunits unless you suspect that they're stuck. Thanks for checking.

It works, too.
