1) Message boards : Number crunching : Turn off Virtualbox task from host details (Message 105858)

Hi all

If you do not want to crunch VBox tasks on Rosetta then this might help:


You can STOP VBox tasks from being crunched...so you can then just crunch the standard Rosetta tasks.

Go to your account on Rosetta website:

Click on:

Computers on this account > "View"

and then for each computer (host) listed, click on "Details" and at the bottom of the list it says:

"VirtualBox VM jobs"

Change it to "Allow" and your account will say:

Host updated
This host will no longer receive new VirtualBox VM jobs

Do this for each computer.

That's it !!

(Oh and click on "Rosetta" project and then "Update" within BOINC Manager too, so it knows your new settings).


As Grant wrote a few post above that option isn’t an option if you haven’t installed Virtual whatever. Sorry I’m a poor noob and have decided that I rather live with that message than investing in more memory and better SSds than going the VM way. I don’t have option. Period.

A new batch of Rosetta 4.20 tasks are out atm, named YIL10mer_YILstub*
I'm getting a lot of computation errors here
Unhandled exception errors all over the place after just a few seconds.

After a couple of attempts, I appear to have all 4 cores running tasks right now, but it's been a struggle.
Beware

It seems to be another batch that prefers Linux as I can see from my team members. I got two times 16 running on Linux about one hour in and as I can see the Windows ones errors out fast, seconds in.

You mean them dated 25th like in yesterday and yes they errored out. The ones from today are good, at least for four hours.

If you have virtualization and want to test your system, enable Python tasks, combine that with LHC ATLAS and your system will get a good work out.


After reading yours and others problems with Python my 16 GB machine and my problem with programmers that give a f..k about our equipment that would never happen. I like that I can run decent timings on my memory and there is no way that I will invest $500 in RAM for the sole purpose to bring my SSD to a premature death.

rb jobs seems to be made from a wide variety of people. The memory required can reach 1.6 GB or the more normal 300-500k MB. The current rb_03_18 is easy on the memory and on the CPU and the result is that the points is less then half of rb_03_17. My normal wall 230W is 155W and CPU is max 55, not the normal 63C. 3900X, 480 mm good cooling. I’m tempted to run 1 hr test run for the future and then pass the easy jobs to others. Due the the lack of job I will let the remaining jobs run to completion but Rosetta is mix bag of fun at best recently. WCG will be back soon….

I only run on one Linux and one Windows 7 atm and all the Windows error out within 20 seconds. All the Ubuntu ones were good until now. The 14 movingstubs units ran the requested 8 hours on my 3900X. I can see that a new team member successfully completed his on Linux, but all were 3 hours. W3670. CPU and OS related?

You are still running Win 10. Case solved. That and as mentioned above the two different cores run at different speed

Most countries have 60 minutes per hour and 60 seconds per minute but according to your calculation Belgium have 36 minutes per hour :). I know what you are doing but you have a long live ahead of you and someone ought to snap you out of that misconception.

7075/(60*60) = 1,96 hours, not 196 minutes. 1,96 hour = 1 hour and 0,96*60/100 = 57.6 minutes
60+57.6 =117,6 minutes

Thank you. I feel a bit stupid - on the same page!

I can see the number 4986 but I can't see that it's a pythron unit. Is it an assumption or do I look the wrong place (Computing drop down menu, Server status)?

Nobody is getting work atm is my guess based on the 12 messages above.

Several of these tasks that are running for twice my set computation time and not checkpointing to boot. I hope I get some sort of credit for these.


Application
Rosetta 4.20
Name
rb_08_23_108315_111529_ab_t000__robetta_cstwt_5.0_FT_IGNORE_THE_REST_06_05_1729195_676

I noticed 5 exceeding or were about to the 8 hours in the same series last night. I aborted them and around 30 others as well. Today I noticed that I did get points for the ones that did run 6-10 hours but only up to the 8 hours.
