Thank you for your very quick answer. :)

I think i understand the problem, but my computer is not a dump.

Edit: I don't know if that still happens but in the pasts i had had WU's running 12 hours instead of 4.

Hello,

I sometimes catch tasks which run for an unusually longer time. My run time is set to four hours and those show low completion rates even after longer hours. I kill them as soon as i see them.

Does anyone else have the same problem. Is there an explanation ?

Edit: They also guzzle huge amounts of RAM but sounds like some bug.

Look here: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/server_status.php

There are no work units available for android it seems. 204 units running with 13 users in total. While there are around 18 000 users running PC and Mac

One of my results partially uploaded before getting stuck. So -as mentioned- the server is probably throttled but not dead.

I have 54 entries waiting to be uploaded...

Same problem here. On two computers on two different ISPs. I noticed that while it seems unable to upload, my account acknowledges my computers have communicated with the project.
8) Message boards : Number crunching : Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA !? (Message 76169)

Hello everyone,

I have attached my quad to R@H and downloaded one WU which crunched successfully. Fine, it seems the last long lived pesky bug has been ironed out.

After having crunched this unit, i noticed BOINC manager didn\'t download any one more. SO i clicked \"update\" and got nothing else than:

mar 05 nov 2013 11:19:05 CET | rosetta@home | update requested by user
mar 05 nov 2013 11:19:06 CET | rosetta@home | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
mar 05 nov 2013 11:19:06 CET | rosetta@home | Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA
mar 05 nov 2013 11:19:08 CET | rosetta@home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

Even if i suspend einstein@home, which is my main project i get no more rosetta tasks. Something else: i have a virtual machine running boinc with r@H only. To switch from the to the \"real\" machine i set the boinc manager form the VM to \"no more tasks\". To see if it could solve the problem i allowed new tasks on the virtual machine. Then only the \"real\" machine accepted new tasks.

I find this strange. On another machine i set einstein to \"no more tasks\" and it doesnt block my other machine from crunching for einstein. Maybe it is because the VM and the \"real\" machine share the same ip ?

And that message mentioning nvidia while there are no GPU WUs and the fatc it refused CPU units still puzzles me.

Post:
Ok, i just suspend the project then. What\'s funny is my current version of BOINC is tied to my OS which is a long term support version so i will not change my BOINC version anytime soon.

Hello all,

I just checked my stats and noticed all my rosetta tasks on my quad 95550 failed since around a month. The computer ID is 1549082. I will not paste here the complete error messages because there are so many tasks. You can browse them from the forum i think.

Here is ONE of the results i got.

I do not know how to debug these codes and would appreciate any help. I set the project to refuse new work. By the way, it continues to hog my memory in spite of my preferences.

Post:
I imagine the web preferences are overridden by the local ones and that\'s why he tries to compute 4 now. These ones use less memory though.

It\'s annoying since the local preferences are global project-wise i.e. it sets the amount of cores i can use for all the projects. I would have liked to limit rosetta to 2 cores.

If i get huge memory guzzlers like the precedent ones i will exit the project.

Thank you for your answers people.

Now i have two rosetta WU\'s crunching. I still don\'t get why i had three at the time even after i updated my preferences.

EDIT: Also why does the project preferences need to be global ? I would like to ask one computer to work on 2 cores and another on his 4 cores for example.

Hello all,

I own a 4 core intel 9550. Since i don\'t recall how long, my computer has been unusable when calculating for r@h. I have 4 Go of RAM. After a load of hard reboots (couldn\'t even use the soft reboot), i finally found a way to suspend rosetta and modify the project preferences. I did set it to \"use at most 2 processors\".

I have three rosetta WU\'s crunching right now.Of course, i clicked on update. My machine works fine for now but i would like to understand.
