1) Message boards : Number crunching : Time estimates seem less than optimal (Message 97447)

So I check the controller before I go to bed, and it's crunching on tasks that had 8 hour estimates. Get up in the morning, they've been running all night, now the estimate is over a day? This will make the later ones, which also think they are 8 hour jobs, report late.

All three of my Ubuntu machines are now stuck on 8 hour estimates, even though I run the 18-hour jobs. They no longer correct themselves. It must be the new BOINC version (7.16.6 or 7.16.7, or whatever they have decided to call it today) and how it interacts with the server.

The same here, both linux and windows. I had set my 24/7 hosts to 14 hours, but, I think, after the 4.20 app they would only run around 8 hours.

My understanding was that longer running tasks would mean less press on the servers, but now I've changed my settings back to the default 8 hours runtime. Things work just as well, it just means more work to do for the servers I guess.

Greetings,

I am running Linux Mint v19.3 which is based on Ubuntu. I have done the following procedure:
The procedure that worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04.4:
(1) Download this file: https://crt.sh/?d=1720081
(2) Place "1720081.crt" in Home directory (e.g., move from desktop)
(3) sudo mv 1720081.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates
(4) sudo update-ca-certificates

I restarted BOINC and am still getting stuck uploads and reports. Is there something else that needs to be done. I have only been using Linux continually for about 8 months, so I'm sorta a noob. ;)

Have a great day! :)

Siran

Are you 100% sure 1720081.crt was moved to /usr/local/share/ca-certificates before doing sudo update-ca-certificates?

btw if wasn't necessary to restart BOINC for me, it just worked.

Yes I also got the transient HTTP error, it´s only when BOINC contacts the scheduler server you get the certificate error.

Even though it says download server is not running it works.

Since you have stuck uploads you might have the certificates expired issue I'm guessing.

I have just done the following steps in my 2 Linux Laptops managed by BAM.

Step 1 - Modify the file account_boinc.bakerlab.org_rosetta.xml
<master_url>https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/</master_url>

Step 2 - Modify the file all_projects_list.xml
<url>https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/</url>
<web_url>https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/</web_url>

Step 3 - Restart boinc manager
systemctl restart boinc-client.service

I didn't need to remove the projet and attach it again.

Tried that on a win10 host, except I didn't use step 2. BOINC deleted all 5 WUs I had in cache and downloaded 3 new, without any url message, so it works now anyway. Guess I won't try that on my 3 other hosts :)

Greetings,

I just discovered something that seems a bit too weird to me.

My task list here says the tasks I got this morning are the x86_64 64 bit tasks. Yet, my tasks properties say they are i686 tasks. Why is that? Or is it that the tasks are intelligent and decide which app is gonna crunch them? lol ;) Or is it that the server itself does not know which app is gonna crunch the tasks so it shows the better of the 2? lol ;)

Something else I don't quite understand is why, if I'm running a 64 bit processor and a 64 bit OS (Linux Mint), do I run a 32 bit app for these tasks?

Not really complaining since I'm happy to be crunching here. Just curious. :)

Have a great day! :)

Siran

Same thing happened to me after I put the no_alt_platform in cc_config, BOINC deleted the 86_64 app and used the i686 app for all tasks instead. I see you have some tasks only paying 20 credits and running much longer than they should, so I guess you have the same problem.

Solution I think, is either delete all tasks or select NNT and empty cache, then do a project reset and see if it works...

Tom, if it doesn't work, I would empty the cache and try resetting the project, might work.

Did some experiments...

I was running a special BOINC version from SETI, triede going back to v7.14.2 which didn't help.

I then copied a backed up copy of the x86_64 apps back to the rosetta folder and edited client_state.xml to replace the i686 info with x86_64, didn't help and BOINC deleted all 4.15 WUs...

Set a low cache and allowed new work, got 2 x86_64 WUs, so seems to work now.

Post:
The list of the newly downloaded WUs is listed as x86_64 work, but since BOINC has deleted that app, they are run by the i686 app.

Post:
Yes have <no_alt_platform>1</no_alt_platform> in cc_config

But after restarting BOINC it has deleted the rosette x86_64 app and all rosesta 4.15 work is now run by the i686 app. It should be the other way I assume...

As suggested I deleted all i686 WUs but BOINC just downloaded new i686 WUs...

btw it HAS deleted the mini rosetta i686 app and leaving the mini rosetta x86_64 app.

Decided to restart BOINC after one of the long running i686 WU had ended, it ran for some 16 hours without making a single checkpoint.

After the restart I got this message from BOINC

Wonder if that's a good or bad message...
