I'm talking about this host in particular.... host

It works well for a day or so, and then fails every WU with this message:

<core_client_version>7.6.33</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[

Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you

Awesome!

I love it when new people join in with the same fascination for the project and the science behind it as me.

Yes.

I noticed this while it was on beta.

The Genome Project also used Rosetta (they describe this on their description).

How about the new Ryzen CPUs? Threadripper (the most expensive one) can handle up to 32 threads, at around 1k bucks. That's 30 bucks per thread (60 per core).

I think my phone (https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/show_host_detail.php?hostid=3224682) seems to do the same as an ATOM CPU.

Is the ATOM power efficient (RAC/W)? (or maybe you electric cost are so low in your area that it doesn't even matter lol).

I stand corrected... these "yh" WUs are definitely RAM hoarders.

On a related topic: I've found that current WUs use considerably less RAM than they did before. If I'm not wrong... R@H WUs used to take about half a GB per WU (thus the popular "1GB-per-core rule of thumb").

Not me directly, but someone very close to me (father, who without I would've never found out about SETI back in 2000), was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Thankfully, we have the means to throw every single treatment that modern-medicine has to offer to fight this damned disease... but we're also ready and in peace if the worst happens. All that's certain is that nobody is going anywhere without a good honorable fight.

I'm not venting, neither looking for "I'm so sorry". I just want to give a heads up about the diseases that plague us as a species, that could affect anybody at anytime without warning. Cherish your loved ones, and let those who care about you cherish you.

I'd also like to thank everybody that participates in this project (along with Folding, GPUGrid, and WCG) and the scientists involved, for we are helping (even if it's just by a single grain of sand) to find treatments that our kids or grand-kids might benefit from in the future.

Well then, enough talk for now! Back to folding and crunching!

It has been asked several time in the BOINC forums, but controlling core use during "In use" and "Idle" automatically could be of great benefit.
It's a big hassle to snooze BOINC or limiting the core count use and then letting BOINC "use all it wants" once I'm done working.

This would help the "I like to help but I don't like BOINC getting in my way while I'm working" people. Heck, even I forget to unsuspend BOINC once I'm done working (and I'm dedicated).

For example, take a 4 core CPU. If you let BOINC run on all 4 cores, you're gonna see a performance hit no matter the priority of the WU (specially with rosetta). But if you automatically limit the core use to just 1, then you won't see any performance hit . Then, once the PC is "idle", increase the core use to 4.
In my opinion, this is a better approach to the issue than the "suspend BOINC work when non-BOINC work takes above 25% of total CPU time". Simpler too (all you have to do is modify the core % in preferences (?) )

I see serious problems with 21AA_CSP_complex, 22AA_1st_CSP_complex and 22AA_2nd_CSP_complex tasks. They all exited with "Error while computing" like:
<message>
upload failure: <file_xfer_error>
  <file_name>21AA_CSP_complex_0151_SAVE_ALL_OUT_500602_91_0_r1107058418_0</file_name>
  <error_code>-161 (not found)</error_code>
</file_xfer_error>

</message>
And I see that some of them also failed on other hosts, like for example this 838934585 and this 838962637.


Same here. Many, many errors like this. Worst of all is that they appear to happen at the end (lots of CPU Time wasted...).
I'm going to reduce the run times to reduce the wasted hours.

1. Adding social media is a good idea (just make it subtle, I've become allergic to "share this on fb!").
Make credits more public, so that whenever I share on fb or instagram, people can see how cool I am due to my credits.
More user friendly UI... More "Mac-ish" (for a lack of a better term), simple buttons, rounded corners, big progress bar (I'm thinking in place for the current "simple view")... Something like: "You are now modelling protein X, involved in Alzheimer's disease, click here to learn more -> link to more in-depth science article regarding the research"
Non-tech people like simple non-intimidating UIs. This is specially true for mobile apps.

2. Yes. Lack of a straightway to get involved (my fault probably, I haven't researched enough, but a button in the boinc manager or a link in the project's website that says "are you a developer and want to help BOINC? Click here!" would help).
I could help with the Android App.
I have very little experience developing windows programs (I have more experience with higher level languages for specific purposes, like MATLAB, etc...) but it could easily become a hobby for me given enough time to get over the learning curve.

You don't get a bad rep for having a corrupt download file. The server simply re-issues your WU to another volunteer.

Something is not letting your phone get the executable file completely.
