Rosetta stopped running in my Boinc manager about one week ago.
The only other project I\'m working on now is the malaria one. That\'s running OK.
I click update on Rosetta, it defers communication for about four minutes, but nothing loads in.
Show graphics is grayed out.
Is the project itself in hiatus, or just lost in limbo land?
Please advise

I don\'t have a Mac system, but I expect your BOINC interface should have an \"Event log\" in one of the options. You need to read your event log to see why Rosetta is not giving you any work.


  • It could be that your computer is requesting work but none is currently available for your Mac operating system/processor.
  • Or you can\'t connect to the Rosetta server for some reason.
  • Or your computer has done too much work for Rosetta recently and is waiting for the Malaria project to catch up before requesting more Rosetta work.



You may want to continue this topic in the Number Crunching forum as relatively few people read this part of the forum.

Hi Douggie,

The project is definitely not on hiatus which I can confirm by checking my own computer (no break in activity), the server status box on the right side on the home page, or the message boards where no one else is reporting related complaints.

A quick check of your tasks list shows that you have been assigned and presumably downloaded tasks in the last week although you haven\'t returned any since the 11th. Can you confirm that these tasks have been successfully downloaded to your computer?

The other possibility is that you have inadvertently suspended calculation of rosetta tasks.

In order to check either of these possibilities you will need to be looking at the advanced view of BOINC manager. From there you can see what tasks have been downloaded to your computer, whether or not they have been suspended, and examine the event log (found in the Advanced dropdown menu) for more clues.

The update command doesn\'t start calculations on your machine; it initiates contact with the rosetta@home servers (the server\'s responses to that contact can be found in the event log). The graphics only appear when your computer is actively calculating rosetta tasks. Post back with some more information (or questions if you are still not sure where to find the information) and perhaps I or another volunteer can help get you crunching again.


HTH,
Snags
