1) Message boards : Number crunching : Computation Error (Message 80316)

That is true if that was indeed what was happening. I just think that it actually means that it never made it back. Based on the outcomes explanation screen:

Client error The task was sent to a computer and an error occurred.
Success A computer completed and reported the task successfully.

I thought it was also a mobile device issue but the majority of the projects sent to my vaio also ended in a compute error. Oh well, its not really like my individual contribution was going to make or break anything. If the work being done does not result in the the results they want I don\'t think it would come up as a compute error since they would have received data that they can use to modify their design or whatever. I don\'t necessarily care that my credit numbers aren\'t going up since they don\'t mean anything outside of the app but I do like seeing changes so that I know that my computer and phone are making contributions, as small as they seem.

Sorry, I don\'t know. It\'s weird some successes occurred too.



Hmm, maybe it would be better to shift support to other projects until its sorted out. At least that way work units don\'t go to waste.

I\'m noticing when I go to look at the work units and their history on other systems that my lack of success is followed by or follows other\'s lack of success on the same work units. Perhaps the work units that can run on ARM7 systems all have a 25% success rate in general and failure is part of the plan for 75% of them??? It seems that the ones the fail for me fail for many systems across different versions of phone, OS, etc. I mean is this a possibility at Rosetta@Home that there is a built in 75% failure rate for certain types of work units and the failures and the successes are all leading to the success of the project as an whole? Like a failure proves something about the work inside the work unit that leads to conclusions about the work and directions of research? Just throwing it out there as an open question since I don\'t know at all and the thought occurred. Cause if that is true, then none of the work, failure or success, is wasted work, just uncredited work, which in the long term credit means nothing to the work being done, as long as it gets done.

It looks like there is no db_set3_7res_android_d_c.20.10_0001_SAVE_ALL_OUT_344080_2094_1_0 file. Maybe no read permissions for some reason?

How can I fix this error then???


I would also like to know how to fix as this is currently the project that gets me most excited regarding boinc. I\'ve suspended my work on this and shifted to other projects in the mean time.

I don\'t see any error messages when I check my android devices. One of them is an old galaxy s3 that I leave plugged in and check every couple of days just to see if its still crunching and the other is my s6 that crunches when I charge it. I honestly did not think there were any issues until I thought to check my task list here on this site and saw that most of the tasks never actually earned any credits. I never installed any firewalls or anything on my phones like I do on my computer and I don\'t think I know how to restrict the mobile connection. I live downtown in a big city on the east coast and one of the devices is completely stationary (doesn\'t leave a room) in a building with wifi. It is possible that the wifi had occasional flickers but I don\'t think that would justify the large number of errors seen.

So I have recently checked the success of some of the WU I have completed and I have a ton of them that are never validated due to compute error (average about 10% success rate) and am not sure why this is the case. Could anyone provide me with some feedback because I will probably just move my support towards other projects like the world community grid. I don\'t have the most powerful machines but its frustrating to see that most of the efforts made aren\'t actually resulting in progress for the project
