1) Message boards : Number crunching : Tells us your thoughts on granting credit for large protein, long-running tasks (Message 94982)
Posted 20 Apr 2020 by Luigi R.
Post:
R@h adapts to changing requirements. With these new large protein models coming soon, tagged with a 4GB memory bound, and with models that may take several hours to run, enough that the watchdog has been extended from its normal 4hours to 10 hours, it seems credit may need some changes as well.

Normally, credit is granted based on the cumulative reported CPU time per model. And so a fast machine with lots of memory computes more models and gets more credit than an older system. But, in the case of these 4GB WUs, they will not even be sent to machines that do not have at least 4GB of memory (and normally BOINC would only be allowed to use less than 100% of that, so I should say where BOINC is allowed to use at least 4GB). So there will be no struggling Pentium 4s reporting any results to reflect the difficulty in the cumulative average.

[...]

if( maxMemoryUsed > 1) {
	grantedCredits = normalCredits * maxMemoryUsed;
}
else {
	grantedCredits = normalCredits;
}


E.g. a host gets 40cr/h. If it uses up to3.5GB of memory, you pay it 40*3.5=140cr/h.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Reported a bit late and invalid (Message 94217)
Posted 12 Apr 2020 by Luigi R.
Post:
Is server marking tasks as invalid because results are reported some minutes/hours after deadline? How come?

Maybe I should have posted there.

Covid-19 wu
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/result.php?resultid=1136817690

Only 2cr today, although I downloaded on 29 Mar 2020. I expected no problem with credits, but I was wrong.

Post:
@bcov:

Why is low-credit granting retroactive?
I downloaded a bunch of covid-19 tasks on the 29th of March. I'm reporting now and getting 2cr. instead of ~200cr.

I thought issue would affect only new tasks downloaded after the 31st of March.

My app version is 4.08.

I've only encountered stuck download queue behavior on my Linux boxes, where BOINC still thinks there are stalled downloads, despite me having cleared them. A restart of the boincmgr fixes that issue.

Same here. It fixes itself after some minutes or hours too.

If you read forums, the "cstwt_5.0" wus has problems since February 2019.
I see.

I think I have already encountered this issue, but I didn't remember it at all.

BOINC client stops to respond and you can't even kill it. Although my client is standalone and user's process ( not a service), you have to kill as superuser.

I'm on Linux, BOINC got freezed because of task rb_02_21_16595_16419_ab_t000__robetta_cstwt_5.0_FT_IGNORE_THE_REST_05_05_896595_65_1.

After 8 hours, I found that my host is at idle! This is very bad.

Please check it, it's not acceptable that a task blocks crunching on all DC projects.
Sadly, I set no more work on R@H.

My target CPU run time is 1 hour.
Rosetta application runs for >5 hours. Then it fails. It happened 1 week ago too.
It looks no credit will get granted for that. I mean the credit granted after ~24 hours for errors.
How can I disable receiving Rosetta workunits? I want Rosetta Mini only.

By the way, I'm still not convinced it isn't Windows-10-specific. Yes, there was at least one report of a similar problem on Linux, but maybe it was different. I ran one of my Linux boxes all day yesterday without getting a sticker, and my Mac remains sticker free. Firing up a different Linux box today and will let it run all day (but that's including a major upgrade, which confuses all issues).

My host (4 stuck task now) has Xubuntu 14.04.5, Linux kernel 3.13.0-116-generic.

Now I have 4 remaining tasks stuck on uploading state.
You can see that they break the "8 KB rule".
https://s28.postimg.org/43l918fy5/rosetta_stuck_tasks.png
Maybe 3 tasks stalled 4 times, so that's why uploaded file size is 32KB (=4*8KB) and not 8KB.
