Message 1587 - Posted: 21 Oct 2005, 22:21:00 UTC

On 2 of my machines I\'m producing dozens of computing errors today. On the others I don\'t :-(

I doubt it has anything to do with the machines themselves, because for most of these work units others are producing errors too.

An example http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/workunit.php?wuid=342005

Can you try the updated client? or at least 4.4+?

Also, see the boinc wiki page about this error.

I just started having computing errors on one box looks like the 4.78 app is not playing well with others or aleast with the 4.19 client.

@wdsmia and others.

My 4.72 is working really fine and is really stable.

You can download it from this, where you can find all versions of BOINC.

The advantage of 4.72 in preference to 4.45 is that the time estimate is better, so it adjust itself after some WU\'s. This means that it downloads relatively correct instead of suddenly going in panic mode about some WU\'s which are estimated wrongly to take more time.

@Hollynoodles
looking at several results from different people its looking more like there may be a problem with the new 4.78 app Im finding the same errors on boxes running 4.19, 4.45 and 4.72.
The Windows/x86 4.78 app was released 21 Oct 2005 1:36:59 UTC If you are running with more than one days cache you may not have run one using the new app.

I just had 42 computational errors in a row, then two test WU\'s were run and I am currently into my next WU. It seems to be running okay??????

ok after investagating a bit more.
Its looking like most of these errors are on wu\'s with the name of xxxxx_abrelaxmode_random_gauss_xxxxx.
why some boxes can process them with no errors and others error out?
I havent a clue.

I had three boxes sharing R@H and LHC@H and had to run BOINC ver.4.19 because LHC@H have not upgraded to 5.x yet.....R@H started giving computing errors when R@H ver.4.78 came along and, unfortunately, rattled off a whole herd of failed WU\'s on all three before I caught it. Soooo.... I had to upgrade to BOINC ver5.2.2 to keep R@H running and wave goodbye to LHC@H until they get their act together. Bottom line: ver. 4.78 won\'t run on BOINC ver.4.19. FYI, the other boxes are using BOINC ver.5.2.1 and are happy.

I noticed that with these errors, it depends on what machine your running. ie if you run an AMD and it errored out, a person with a pentium would have success and vice versa.

Upgrading to 4.45 does not help. A message like this occurs for those same work units:

<core_client_version>4.45</core_client_version>
<message>CreateProcess() failed - The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (0x20)

Same here, both my AMD Athlon powered PCs have had a number of work units crash with oxC0000005 errors. I upgraded both to BOINC 5.2.2 to see if it made any difference, which has reduced the number of errors but not eliminated them.

My Pentium 4 (2.4, 2.8 and 3.4 GHz) machines have been fine.

EDIT: The Athlon 64 has been stable for the last 10 or so WU, but the Athlon XP is having more errors than successes and I do keep the WU in memory.

....Could it be related to some optimizations in the new executable 4.78? This error occurs on an Athlon TB 1400 without SSE support.[/quote]
>Most of my boxes are AMD ie. Durons, Semprons, Athlons and since upgrading to BOINC ver.5.x I have not had any problems with the new R@H ver.4.78. IMHO, the main heavy in the piece is the version of BOINC used.....Cheers, Rog.

Have not had any errors of the type mentioned, using BOINC 5.2.2 the units lately have been 4.78, windows boxs AMD and Intel processors. I do keep processs in memory. Note has been problem mentioned in many threads concerning not keeping rosetta in memory.

I presume, you are talking about Athlon XP\'s? Because the Athon XP has SSE instructions. The older Athlon Thunderbirds don\'t have SSE instructions. That\'s my point...

>Point well taken!.....my Athlon is a XP3000+ with 1Gb RAM and running WinXP. I have not had any problems since upgrading to BOINC 5.2.1. I also leave Rosetta in memory and run R@H and CPDN 90/10 with 120 min changeover. Your idea certainly seems intresting. I am not having any problems with my 1.8Gz Durons or 2.8GHz Semprons, howerver. I don\'t know if they have SSE instructions capability but I doubt it?? Hope this helps.....Cheers,Rog.

I\'ve done 2 of these WU\'s that have been talked about, and so far no problem, running 5.2.2, both WU\'s finished between 45 minutes and an hours worth of time. And did not error out. My computer is an Intel Celeron 2.6ghz with 512mb ram on WinXP home.
