Looking at my results page, I was suprised to see I had an error result.

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/workunit.php?wuid=838421701

Investigating, I found the work unit was "Cancelled by server". It is not, therefore, an error.

Server status looks fine, but I\'ve got results waiting to upload, and they aren\'t going. Guess there is some issue with servers, comms, etc. Probably be okay later.

I passed 1,000,000 during the night. Was a busy 24 hours, I also passed 10,000,000 at Einstein yesterday afternoon, GPU assisted there of course.

Done.

My concern is that some people do not watch their BOINC stuff \"vigourously\" and may never notice their machiines resources are being wasted. I have had machines running BOINC at remote locations although they were not running that project.

Another project has a problem. Some of their work units run more or less forever, instead of the normal 2-3 hours. The admin says errors are rare and unfortunate, but has not done anything about it. His project error percentage is 0.6106%. I\'d like to know the error percentage at other projects to compare with theirs.What is the percentage error rate here?

I have several stuck uploading. Normally not a problem as they resolve the issue quite quickly, but one of the results I\'ve got waiting is a short deadline work unit, its dedline is approaching.

Sort of off topic, but I came close to removing Avast and putting AVG back up. I got fed up with the frequent spam messages Avast issues suggesting my protection is not complete and to activate it, when actually it is simply a marketing ploy to get people to pay for upgrades.

There is a quiet gaming mode you can switch too which prevents these from appearing, (so they say...). There is an active complaints thread about this behaviour on Avast\'s web site.

I have uninstalled AVG on here, and re-enabled Rosetta. As mentioned, I only had both here as a convenience. The fact that this issue only affected Rosetta, and only in the last few months, unavoidably, leaves a certain level of doubt in my mind.

My machines typically have AVG or Avast, they have whatever was my favourite at the time they were set up. This machine does, indeed, have both on it, I don\'t need both, but as the machine I use, it was useful to see if any of the others needed updates or actions. I can disable one of them. I have not found any trouble having them both there however, they have been there for years. I\'ll have a look at Malware Bytes, always interested.

My Rosetta work unit queue is now exhausted, so I am no longer crunching for Rosetta. I had hoped someone might have some information that could correct this behaviour. Rather sad.

>>> how did that happen?

Read the third message in this thread. It happens because I noticed it, suspended it, then resumed it. I cannot notice it when it happens at sites I do not visit regularly. Indeed, I have allowed these tasks to run for days on this machine because I didn\'t notice the problem was there.

The problem must occur right at the end of processing the work unit, the Remaining column shows ---, when re-enabled, the elapsed drops to a sensible time, and remaining to a reasonable figure, and it runs to completion.

My machines all have Avast and/or AVG anti virus software, something I will not be changing as they work for me, and cause me no problems. If Rosetta cannot work on machines with these tools on them, then Rosetta has a problem, simple as that. Many people run these.

As I have said, this is a Rosetta specific issue, I have not found this with any other projects.

And today, another of these. Clearly, there is an issue here, affecting Rosetta, and not any of my other projects. No new tasks set AGAIN, and will remain set until I get some information about this, what is being done about it, and when it will be resolved.

The wu this time is:

foldit_2000977_0007_fold_and_dock_SAVE_ALL_OUT_285373_5459_0

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/workunit.php?wuid=683127995

The first report I made in June was the first time I had seen this, something has happened or changed before, but not long before then.

I had another of these today, 50+ hours. It is clear that I cannot rely on the project at remote stations. No new tasks set. It is interesting that you say it is a BOINC issue, Rosetta is the only project I am connected to that is showing this. This machine is, for example, connected to 23 projects.

I enabled the job again, and it started running, the elapsed dropped back to 6:41:22. Is David Baker aware of this issue? I have BOINC running on a couple of remote systems that I rarely visit, they could be sitting idle for all I know.

I have this...

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/workunit.php?wuid=668308462

... work unit running on one of my machines. I say running, I don\'t think it is, when it is in the \"Running\" state, my Windows XP task monitor CPU usage drops from ~100% to ~75%, (quad core machine). The job has racked up 47:49:12 hours at the time I suspended it.

They are aware of the problem. I also have several wu\'s complete and not uploading, deadline approaching, but there is nothing I or you can do about it, so chill out and let it resolve.

I\'m back. Problem has not changed. Yes, I\'ve retried numerous times over the period. I\'ll abort it, don\'t have time right now to investigate further.

Probably insignificant, but I have a Rosetta wu \"downloading\" at 0% complete. It has been like that since yesterday morning. Other projects are up/downloading normally. I can see from the server status page that all is working, I\'ve checked my end, all okay.

It was getting a small CPU time figure though, 2% or 3% rather than the 25% you would normally see. I\'ll enable Rosetta again and keep a watch on it.
