1) Message boards : Number crunching : Problem with task "exited with zero status but no 'finished' file" error (Message 78017)

Allowing BOINC to use 100% CPU time got rid of that error for me, possibly in conjunction with a 12-hour run time. In practice, the CPU usage tends to run between 75 to 90%. I also found that rebooting the machine will cause an in-process work unit to fail.

I don't know if this will be helpful, but yesterday when I rebooted my computer to install updates, several of the Rosetta units in process at the time failed, even though I shut down BOINC gracefully. The tasks were all from either the SAVE_ALL_OUT or IGNORE_THE_REST group. Here's a couple examples:

The next to finish was:

I'm pretty sure I would have had some a couple months ago, but those have cycled out of my logs by now. If no one has any current ones, I can just set my client to grab 48 hour sets.

Is there a way to edit the title that I'm missing? I'd like to add [Fixed] to the title.

So I checked my log after getting home from work today, and it looks like everything is completing successfully now. The last unit to fail was just before I changed the preferences.

So, set the target CPU run time to twelve hours, and the max CPU time usage to 100%.

I hope the CPU usage requirement will be fixed soon. I don't want to have to run my box at 100% all day in a desert summer.

The odd thing is, Rosetta is the only project which returns those errors. I currently have the processor time set to the default of 50%. I'll let it run at 100% today and see if that makes a difference.

Thanks for responding David. I currently have the the target CPU run time preference set to twelve hours. I haven't received any time-out errors since, but the second error, "exited with zero status but no 'finished' file," is returned for nearly every unit I process.

The timeout errors have been resolved by adjusting the runtime preference. The "exited with zero status" errors are still occurring. Some of the these do complete, but not many.

I changed that. The other changes per the link above don't appear to have made any difference.

I just saw this, I'll see if any of these steps make a difference.

I see other computers have been completing the work units, and I have reset the project a couple times with no effect, including reinstalling the client. Very nearly every unit I've run on this machine in the past couple of weeks gets one of these errors. Anyone have ideas or insights?
