A mixture of 8-day and 3-day deadlines is now the normal for the project. Generally the 3-day deadlines are seen Friday through the weekend.


That's why I asked, because it was Wednesday.

What's up with all these tasks coming down with 3-day deadlines?

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I don't remember the answer, so here it comes.

I was away for a week and neglected to run down my tasks before turning off my computer. Now I have a number of Rosetta tasks that are late - and running - three with deadlines on 8/23, and five with deadlines earlier today. There are also three more with deadlines later this evening but would not finish before then even if I started them immediately.

Should I abort them or let them run?

Now that things have settled down after the server upgrade, I thought I would report on the effectiveness of suggestions made here.

Thanks to Mod.Sense and rjs5. I have added the xml files they recommended.

I also made one further change to my settings: I changed Store at least 2.0 days of work and Store up to an additional 0.5 days of work to 2.3 and 0.2 respectively. I reasoned that having a smaller "additional" amount would result in fewer tasks added each time BOINC Manager determined it was time to download some Einstein tasks. It is now usually downloading only one task at a time.

Bottom line: Einstein tasks now make up roughly 20% of the tasks in my queue - success!

I am running only 2 projects: Rosetta at 80% and Einstein at 20%.

For Rosetta, BOINC manager keeps \"Requesting new tasks for Intel GPU,\" which ALWAYS results in \"Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks.\"

Then Einstein comes along a few minutes later and scores new tasks by \"Requesting new tasks for CPU.\"

This results in my queue filling up with Einstein tasks, even though I\'m running Rosetta at 80%.

Is there a way to fix this?




Rosetta will only run on CPU.
Einstein will run on CPU or GPU AND ... the GPU version requires 1 full CPU.

Running Einstein on ONLY the GPU plus the GPU required 1 CPU ... will likely be more than 20%.

I would suggest you change the Einstein preferences to only run GPU jobs on your machine.

The idle CPUs will then request Rosetta jobs.


Thanks for the suggestion, but I don\'t want to run anything on the GPU.



I have had to play with the BOINC CLIENT settings to get exactly what I want but these XML controls are pretty flexible.
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration

Try inserting the following TEXT file named \"app_config.xml\" in the Einstein Project directory. Change the \"3\" to the maximum Einstein jobs you want to run.


Tell BOINC to read it ....
OPTIONS: READ CONFIG FILE option

Look at the EVENT LOG and you should see a message that says it READ the config file.

------------------------------------ cut

<app_config>
<!--
I am a comment
-->
<project_max_concurrent> 3 </project_max_concurrent>

</app_config>


Thanks. I\'m not sure it will fix the problem I have with the queue filling up with Einstein tasks, but it may keep Einstein from using all of my (8) cores when those tasks become critical.

BTW, the Event Log says \"Found app_config.xml,\" for Einstein, not that it read it. Is this ok or did I do something wrong?

Reporting that the task named .86.kin_propCO_6.5_23.0_7.0_t0153_0010_0001_fold_and_dock_SAVE_ALL_OUT_486512_197_0 ran more than 10 hours; my Target CPU run time is 6 hours.

That completes my report. However, I do not understand why I only got 48.8 credits, when the more normal tasks that take roughly 6 hours always get more than 100.

Computing preferences:

Would someone please explain for me the logic behind 0+2? TIA

My preference is now set at 1.5+1. I increased it from 1.5+0.5 some time ago, as I was tired of running out of Rosetta tasks. Until this latest problem that worked well.

Yes, I occasionally get 2-day deadline tasks (sometimes as many as 10), and they defer tasks with 5-7 day deadlines for 6 hours or so (my chosen Target CPU run time), but since I have 8 cores they eventually all easily get processed in time.
