Thanks, dcdc. I made do with some of the Rosetta compute graphics.

Brian,

Ooops, I meant to say .mp4 instead of .mp3.

I'll take your advice here. The graphics of a Rosetta task aren't as compelling for a general audience as a slick rotating protein or antibody would be, but it'll have to do.

Thanks.

Hey,

I'm looking for a free, simple, short .mp3 or .mov rotating graphic of a protein or protein folding or an antibody, etc. etc., that I can include in a video that I'm making.

I searched the iStock and Adobe (and the like) and I'm disappointed to see that they're charging an average of $75 for a 10 second clip. There's got to be something out there that is in the public domain, but I can't find it.

What I'm looking for is something like this:

Thanks!

From the New York Times today, regarding UW's work. They did not specifically mention Rosetta@Home:

It's been three days and not a single WU has blown. The only step I took was reducing the number of running threads down to 13 from 16 as per Grant's suggestions.

The problem seems to be fixed, but I'll keep a close eye on it. I'll leave twiddling with the voltages alone unless the problem seriously recurs again.

Thank you, all.

So that task that failed on my machine completed successfully on a similar machine. That confirms that there is something wrong on MY machine.

Thank you for your recommendations here. There are tips to alter CPU voltage, both upwards and downwards. This is something that I'm not comfortable with as I've never messed around with voltages.

One observation - since I've notched performance from 16 threads down to 13 as per Grant's recommendation, only one task has failed and it was right around the time of the setting change so I'm not sure if it was PRE- or POST-change.

In the meantime, I will check for a new BIOS update for my mobo. The last time I updated the BIOS was quite some time ago.

If it turns out that I need to tinker with CPU voltages, I will need guidance from someone who knows what they're doing.

Thank you, all.

Hi Grant,

No, it is not overclocked/volted. I'm running all 8 cores / 16 threads.

I've never come close to maxing out the memory that I've seen, but interesting on limiting the cores. I'll notch it down to 13 threads and see what happens.

Thanks.

Hey,

I have a long-standing problem on one of my machines. It began with Seti@Home WUs last year and is continuing now with Rosetta@Home WUs. I run World Community Grid WUs on this same machine and they usually all run to completion without problems, except on very rare occasions - when they do, they blow with the SAME error, at the SAME address.

Other people who run the same WU nearly always have success. Here is an example of one of my problem workunits:

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/result.php?resultid=1213749857

This happens to about 15% of my R@H workunits, so I consider this to be a big problem. I run all cores and threads this machine 24x7, there are no GPU WUs running, and the CPU is comfortable (40 to 50 C.).

I have run extensive diagnostics on the machine (Prime95 for 12 hours; MemTest86 for 12 hours) and no problems ever show up.

Does anyone have any guidance here?

Thanks.

I've tried digging into more detail on the work being done by UWproteindesign on this particular potential breakthrough that was mentioned, but I can't seem to find any detail.

Does anyone have a link to this specific item which provides more detail on this particular piece:

Ah yes! This makes sense.

I've been crunching Rosetta@Home successfully for months.
I recently added World Community Grid (WCG) to my BOINC manager, showing 50% priority.
Rosetta@Home also showed 50% priority.
Everything was good... WCG had 50% of my machine and R@H had 50% of my machine regarding task load.

But, I checked my tasks on the R@h site just now and noticed that all my R@H stats were zero - nothing completed, nothing being processed...
Then I went to my computer and I see that it's ALL WCG tasks running now. No R@H.
The log shows for R@H: "Not requesting tasks: don't need (CPU: not highest priority project; NVIDIA GPU) when I try a manual update.

I've successfully run a mix of projects before without any special intervention on my part.
What has gone wrong?

Thanks.

Bryn,

The information in that post you sent me the link to fixed the problem.

Thank you! I doubt I would have found that tidbit of information searching on my own.

Post:
Nearly all of my tasks are completing just fine as they are being reported to rosetta@home and are showing up as completed and validated.

However, when I look at the BOINC manager event log, all I see is:

"Project requested delay of xx seconds" where xx is either 7 or 31

This has been going on since April 22.

Usually you see all kinds of messages in the event log about tasks beginning and completing and everything else going on.

What is happening?

Why does Rosetta show such a short task history list of my account? I can only see one or two days' worth of history of my tasks.

With other projects I can see months or even years worth.

Thanks.
