Message 73170 - Posted: 30 May 2012, 13:51:00 UTC - in response to Message 73169.  

See this thread. Probably related to core client 7.x as I have no problems with my 6.x clients.

Hi.

This task locked up & brought this system to it's knees, when i checked the task properties it was trying to use over 3GB of ram, this rig only has 4GB total.

I had to stop Boinc & reboot the system i've never had to do that before, it had tried to run for about 4min before i caught it & killed it.

This is just a small amount of the result report there's a lot more, check it out yourself.

There must be more to it than that. Of my last 38 workunits under BOINC 7.0.25
with minirosetta 3.31, only one failed.

Using 64-bit Windows (Vista on one computer, Windows 7 on the other).

but restarted o.k. when i rebooted, but the result log has got a lot of info as

well from the crash, if it's any help.

Hi.

I received the second copy of this task when i had a look at why it had been

resent, it looks like it had the same over memory error as the one i had

yesterday. I wasn't going to let it crash my system again so i aborted it.

The first rig to try & run it was a 32core intel with only 16GB of ram, i say

only because of the amount of cores it running.

You might want to look at why these are going wild with memory usage, looks like there from the same batch.

I am still having problems with about 50% of my work units crashing since I've upgraded to the new BOINC, and even with Rosetta 3.31 version. Can someone point me in the right direction to find a solution? Or is there one?
Thanks in advance.

In my last 42 workunits, I've had only one fail, so there's probably more to your problems than you've mentioned.

Are able to go into the advanced section of BOINC Manager, Event Log, scroll to the top, and copy all the lines before the first BOINC project is listed? For example, here's my results from that for one of my computers:

Note that I have a rather high amount of memory - the maximum that motherboard can hold. That seems important for some of the newer Rosetta@Home workunits that use over 1 GB of memory each.

In my recently rebuilt machine I run a similar system to you two but with less RAM & less disk space, but my last 81 tasks have completed just fine.

So it must be something else. Next on the list would be Computing Preferences in the Boinc manager.

Processor Usage tab
While computer is on batteries: Ticked
While computer is in use: Ticked
Use GPU while computer is in use: Unticked
Only after computer has been idle for 0.00 minutes
While processor usage is less than 0 percent
Every day between hours of 00:00 and 00:00
Day of week override: none
Switch between applications every 250 minutes
On multiprocessor systems, use at most 100.00 % of the processors
Use at most 100.00 % CPU time

Network usage tab
All zero or blank or unticked except
Minimum work buffer 0.10 Max additional work buffer 1.50 days

Disk & Memory usage tab
Use at most 10.00Gb disk space
Leave at least 0.10Gb disk space free
Use at most 50.00% of total disk space
Tasks checkpoint to disk at most every 60 seconds
Use at most 75.00% of page file (swap space)
Memory
Use at most 60.00% when computer is in use
Use at most 90.00% when computer is idle
Leave applications in memory while suspended: Ticked

Exclusive applications tab
None

Any clues?

Nothing in particular. Using an AMD CPU instead of an Intel CPU might be significant, but otherwise we'll both have to wait for others to post similar information.

Just flicking over to my W7 Intel laptop, my Boinc Preferences are essentially the same as the Vista desktop posted above. 1 WU errored out in the last 50 WUs so pretty much fine. Settings as follows:

The next usual factor is whether the machine is being overclocked or not as the demands of Rosetta sometimes finds the weak spots, so I read (no expert here)

In my recently rebuilt machine I run a similar system to you two but with less RAM & less disk space, but my last 81 tasks have completed just fine.


So it must be something else. Next on the list would be Computing Preferences in the Boinc manager.

Processor Usage tab
While computer is on batteries: Ticked
While computer is in use: Ticked
Use GPU while computer is in use: Unticked
Only after computer has been idle for 0.00 minutes
While processor usage is less than 0 percent
Every day between hours of 00:00 and 00:00
Day of week override: none
Switch between applications every 250 minutes
On multiprocessor systems, use at most 100.00 % of the processors
Use at most 100.00 % CPU time

Network usage tab
All zero or blank or unticked except
Minimum work buffer 0.10 Max additional work buffer 1.50 days

Disk & Memory usage tab
Use at most 10.00Gb disk space
Leave at least 0.10Gb disk space free
Use at most 50.00% of total disk space
Tasks checkpoint to disk at most every 60 seconds
Use at most 75.00% of page file (swap space)
Memory
Use at most 60.00% when computer is in use
Use at most 90.00% when computer is idle
Leave applications in memory while suspended: Ticked

Exclusive applications tab
None

Any clues?


My Computing Preferences settings that are different from yours for one computer:

processor usage
Use GPU while computer is in use checked
Only after computer has been idle for 3.00 minutes
Switch between applications every 60.00 minutes
On multiprocessor systems, use at most 50.00% of the processors
(has also been 75.00% for some workunits)

network usage
Minimum work buffer 0.00 days
Max additional work buffer 0.20 days

disk and memory usage
use at most 30.00 Gigabytes disk space
Leave at most 0.50 Gigabytes disk space free
Use at most 95.00% of page file (swap space)

Memory usage
Use at most 40.00% when computer is in use
Use at most 40.00% when computer is idle


Summary: The use of an AMD CPU no longer looks especially significant.
Nothing else looks very significant yet.

Summary: The use of an AMD CPU no longer looks especially significant.
Nothing else looks very significant yet.

Just looking up the thread, is the only problem you're having a slowdown when you go above 40% RAM? Otherwise you don't really have any problems? Or did I miss something?

The one field you didn't mention is
"Leave applications in memory while suspended: Ticked"

Having this unticked has caused people problems in the past (for some reason). I don't know this affects machines nowadays.

The only other one that's possibly significantly different is
"On multiprocessor systems, use at most 50.00% of the processors"
I can't recall if it's this one or the CPU time field that was an issue once - probably the latter now I think about it, so probably ok.

And the other factor for some was whether overclocking is in operation.

Otherwise, I agree, the settings look pretty standard %^|

I have severe problems with slowdowns of non-BOINC 32-bit programs whenever I let my first computer go above about 40% memory used, as if it was trying to stuff all the 32-bit programs into just one 4 GB 32-bit memory space. No such problems seen on my second computer (the one with Windows 7). No similar problems with 64-bit programs.

"Leave applications in memory while suspended: Ticked" is correct for both my computers also.

"On multiprocessor systems, use at most 50.00% of the processors" is currently needed on my first computer to devote one CPU core to an antivirus scan expected to take a few more days, and still leave one CPU core available for what I do from the keyboard. It will go back to 75% when the antivirus scan finishes. My second computer has 4 CPU core, hyperthreaded, so BOINC sees them as 8 CPU cores. Leaving just one of those 8 idle seems sufficient.

I don't use overclocking, so I didn't mention it.

Ok, so it's not limited to BoincRosetta. That kind of makes sense, though it doesn't help you obviously...

I don't use overclocking, so I didn't mention it.

It's worth being explicit that it's not a factor when there aren't any clues elsewhere either - so it can be excluded as a possibility.

Looks like we got nowhere fast. It may even be it's the quickest we've ever got nowhere... ;)

Im not sure if this can be any help. But, after my original post I looked in the computing preferences menu and I found that the last category, the one that says "Use at most __% of cpu time" was at 50%. So i reset everything to the default settings. Now its at 100%, and since then not one work unit has failed. Maybe its just a coincidence. Anyway I thought I would share.
