Post:
we can't reproduce this on our windows machines and it appears to be a linux specific issue. Can others confirm seeing this with windows platforms? can you point me to your tasks so I can see the stderr if so?


Here you are David, windows only problem on my end:

Task 171979908

I aborted all of the other 5.96 tasks but they were behaving the same way thus the rest on my list have a status of "aborted by user" with nothing else to go off of.

I understood from the release log that 1.28 should eliminate unnecessary data base files. I completed two v1.28 tasks and I still have (now) 6 mini-rosetta databases totaling 76 MB. Delete doesn't work or doesn't work as I expect?


That is odd. Do you still have these? they should have been deleted. You can manually delete the databases (minirosetta_database_revXXXXX.zip). The current version is minirosetta_database_rev23035.zip.

I still have the mini DBs after processing several v1.28 tasks; something isn't working. Can anyone else verify that deletion of old DBs has worked on their windows XP machines?


I can confirm, two DB's are still present along with the current version.


Can you list the file names that are present?


David,

I am showing:

"minirosetta_database_rev21566"
"minirosetta_database_rev22619"
"minirosetta_database_rev23035"

Are people seeing this problem with other work units or is it a t405 specific problem for now?


It seems to be only or mostly t405 work units.

Is this platform specific?

If people are getting this client hanging error please post here:
1. the platform
2. client version
3. work unit
4. additional details that may help


Windows XP, BOINC version: 5.10.45, Client Version: 5.96

I've just aborted all of my remaining WU. I checked CPU usage and I was using one core with a minirosetta WU (everything OK). The 5.96 WU was idle.

I restarted BOINC and the WU actually started crunching again but I aborted anyhow, given that I have seen it start normal after restart and then hang shortly after.

The restart always tends to either crash one or both WU (even the nominal WU's such as minirosetta). That's all I have, hope it helps.

I am going to suspend for now given the many lost hours over the past few days but I will be back when the problem is fixed.

So BOINC sat idle all night long. Neither of my two cores were using cycles for at least 8 hours. I exited out and then came back in. This WU immediately finished (even though it was not to do so according to my 3 hour runtime) and it shows an unhandled exception. This happened once before for application version: minirosetta 1.28. Others are apparently having problems as well. Is this being looked into?

Yesterday, and again today, I noticed a Rosetta unit active, but Windows Task Manager showed it getting no CPU. Both times I aborted the unit. The most recent looked like this in the message log:

6/16/2008 9:34:38 PM|rosetta@home|Unrecoverable error for result t405__CASP8_JUMPAB_RES81to192_SAVE_ALL_OUT_BARCODE__3758_12512_0 (aborted via GUI RPC)

I hate to see my PC sitting idle when I could be processing SETI or ClimatePrediction.

Any help would be appreciated.

Larry


I just noticed this as well. I did a quick reboot and it started again. But agreed, CPU sitting idle is very painful...

Did anyone else notice that their reference to the alpha carbon (Ca) is actually the chemical symbol for Calcium. That might mess with some peoples heads...

I have a PS3...it's been doing nothing for 5+ months. I know a bunch of other people that have PS3s and I can guarantee you that I could get them to run a BOINC client if I asked.

For now, why not point them in the direction of Folding@home?




Or check out PS3GRID if you would like to get BOINC credit. It is Linux based but the learning curve is not too steep.

The mini rosetta 1.15 units just continually crash. Why keep queuing them to
distribute until the problems are sorted? People are wasting k watts of power
for nothing in the meantime...
I would think we would just line up 5.96 units until the bugs were sorted instead
of wasting thousands of watts of energy for nothing.

????


I just abort them as soon as I see them but I'm sure that may be a problem for someone such as yourself with 14K RAC, sadly I only have 1 computer...

I would set Rosetta to "no new work" for the time being and come back later when this gets all sorted out.

I've been away from the boards for a few days and I just noticed 3 WU of mine errored out (all minirosetta). This appears to be a fairly known problem after reading about all the problems everyone else has had. My question is this, am I going to get credit for the lost time (about 600 credits by my count)?

This WU=141716683 completed *1* decoy in 50,720 seconds (~14 hours). The WU was immediately tagged finished given that 2 decoys would have taken approx. 28 hours and my time limit for each WU is 24 hours. I'm not sure if this is a problem but it seems very strange to me.

Hi!

I set my computer up again, and so it got a new host-id.
I tried to merge both similar hosts, but what happened:
The host-credit-count begins new from zero, can that be restored to 6392.194058 credits please?
host-id is 715223
Thank you.

best regards, Nightshift

Your computers are hidden from the rest of the online community and this is going to limit how we can help you. For anyone who can help with this I have linked to the Host in question (715223)

maybe we should make the forum, non resisable, so if someone posts a long link or something it brakes it up. cause now in the problems with 5.90/5.91 the thread are really big, now i have a quiet high resolution, 1280*1024, but if someone with 800*600 or 1024*768, tries to view this he has to drag forever to read.


Agreed. I just posted here, good luck, beware of wrist injury!

Here's one that fell about 22 hours short of my expected runtime. Seriously, what is going on here? This is starting to become ridiculous. I literally went hundreds of days without so much as a hiccup but I have had maybe a dozen errors in just the past week...

This one validated but was caught by the watchdog for getting stuck: 129143112

Granted that this is a good thing, it did what it was supposed to do but I haven't had this many errors/"other weird things" since the very early days of Rosetta. It seems there is something not right going on.

This one just errored out: 128154725

This is on a windows XP box. Rosetta asked Zone Alarm for access to the net. I gave permission and it killed itself.

Tim, great job on the Rosetta game scores!

Just so you understand, the task had ended abnormally already. This is the reason Rosetta wanted direct access to the internet and ZoneAlarm caught it. The program is trying to report the symbol tables at the time of the failure.

So, it was the failure that caused the internet access; and not the other way around.


Got it. Thanks! I'll be back in the game soon, I'm totally addicted!
