1) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Application Preference (Message 89414)
Posted 17 Aug 2018 by ritterm
No, Rosetta does not have an opt-in, opt-out preference for different applications....

Thanks for the feedback. I figured that was the case, but wanted to be sure.

Out of curiosity, what objective are you trying to achieve? Are you trying to reduce the memory used by Rosetta?

No host issues or technical considerations are involved. I'm merely working on a personal milestone related to the "mini" app.

Is it possible to set a preference somewhere that allows you to choose between Rosetta and Rosetta Mini tasks? There are other projects that allow you to choose between apps/sub-projects, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I've tried setting my target CPU time to 1 hour -- thinking "mini" might mean shorter run times -- but that doesn't seem to have made a difference.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : 24-Hour Back-off? (Message 77997)

Recently I've found some of my hosts well into what looks like a 24-hour back-off period (project status is "Deferred for: HH:MM:SS"). I don't see any messages in the BOINC manager indicating that I've exceeded some quota, that the host is returning too many errors, or anything like that. When I update the project, the host gets tasks and things continue right along as if there was no issue.

Has anybody else seen this?

I'm seeing the same kind of thing. For example...

Task ID 648541941
Task ID 648602070

Also, some in the CASP9_bz batch...

Task ID 648731970
Task ID 648569850

[edit]I've aborted all my CASP_** tasks[/edit]
5) Message boards : Number crunching : 3.43 is causing pop-ups (Message 74285)

It also seems to rob a CPU on multi-core hosts making it unavailable for use by other BOINC projects -- it just sits there idle. When I suspend Rosetta, the previously idle core picks up a WU from another project. I have seen this on two hosts that have 3.43 tasks. One is a hex-core AMD, the other a quad-core Intel; both are Win7-64.
