Message 77945 - Posted: 15 Feb 2015, 2:59:10 UTC

I have not heard others reporting BSOD and suspecting R@h to be the root cause. So, I think it more likely that since R@h is probably running in the background all of the time that when a BSOD occurred that R@h probably had a number of files opened, and unzipped, and etc.

Each task that runs handles its own files. So if there were storage problems, they should clear out as new tasks come in. I believe the underlying file structures used by SETI are probably not as extensive and complex as those used by R@h. So that may be part of why you didn't see similar problems there.

I'd suggest running the integrity tests several times in the coming days and see if any further corrupted files crop up. Since the operating system is handling the file storage, orphaned fragments etc. would be the type of thing that the applications should be able to cause to happen. I mean the operating system should enforce such things, and so even an erroneous application should not be able to cause such corruption.

"I used multiple tests as most of my BSOD errors repeatedly kept pointing to the drives as the reason for the system crashing."

In the past 6 months I had a similar problem with 2 separate computers. After days of investigation I figured out that I had a marginal memory stick in one machine that would pass RAM testing but, after extended BOINC use would give me errors that eventually caused the blue screen of death.

On the other machine I found that my North Bridge chip was getting excessively hot and causing the same type of symptom. I used zip-ties to place an extra fan that blows directly on the North Bridge. Soon, I will have no choice but to replace the motherboard.

On my father's machine I actually replaced the SATA cable with a shorter cable and his BSOD errors stopped.

On a side note, there is a BOINC setting change that seemed to help me extend the life of my hard drives. Under BOINC computing preferences - disk and memory usage tab you will find, "Tasks checkpoint to disk at most every ___ seconds" If you change that setting from the default 60 seconds to say 120 seconds you should have a lot less disk activity. I set my systems at 360 and have had no problems.

I wish you good luck on finding the solution to your problem and please let us know what you determine.

job "foldit:2000402_1078_fold_and_dock_SAVE_ALL_OUT_245640_26607_0" appears to be "eternal", has been running for almost 10 hours with no sign of progress for the last hour.
Any recommendation?

I'd suggest reviewing the task's properties to confirm if the recorded CPU time is increasing (the BOINC Manager will show time elapsed increasing, even if the task is not being given CPU). If not, it may mean a higher priority task is consuming CPU.

The "watchdog" will clean it up if it runs for more than 4 hours passed your target runtime preference. So, I'd let it run normally. I suspect your system is busy and so elapsed time is increasing more than CPU time. The watchdog is comparing the CPU time you see in the task's properties.

I'm wondering if there are some problems currently. All but very few units are ending with 'computation error' messages. I've taken off and re-downloaded the Rosetta project but no change.

thanks.

Looking at your tasks, several have been successfully completed by other machines. Most show issues with missing files, which are sometimes being shown as download errors, and other times showing in the log when reported as a compute error.

Have you checked your antivirus software? Or firewall settings? It seems your machine is often not getting all of the pieces that allow a task to run properly.

A lot of active users again. Maybe Charity engine is here again.

Not getting any workunits either. All servers "green" but only one task available ... but not for me apparently.
Anybody else copy this state?

Hi, it has been more than 24hrs since my computer hasn't been assigned new tasks. Is something wrong?

It seems like a few tasks were made available his morning - I got 4, yay - but they've all been swallowed up.

Everything's gone red on the Server-status page at this precise moment, so I assume people are working on it still. Hopefully it all gets sorted soon. I've got a few other projects to run in the short term.

Another 200,000 tasks seem to have come through, of which I got 5 - yay - not much for an 8-core machine. All swallowed up again. Slowly, slowly...

It appears there has been another surge of users from Charity Engine. There are over a million tasks out being worked on right now. It looks like there are plenty available to send right now, but as they all start reporting back, I'd imagine some upload congestion is likely as well. The BOINC Manager will retry both getting more work and any uploads that run in to programs.

One way to make the most of each task is to bump up your preferred work unit runtime. This is a setting in the Rosetta@home preferences, which are updated directly from the website. Be sure to set the value for the venue your host is attached to if you have more than one. Also, suggest you make changes gradually so the BOINC Manager has time to adjust to the longer runtime and request a roughly correct amount of work. So best to adjust when you have a small number of days of work on hand setting.
