Yet another week without being assigned work from server, last assignment from Rosetta back on the 15th of september. Seti@home, Lattice & Poem are workning around the clock - whats happening with Rosetta!?

My mac is running well. Are others having mac client issues?


My iMac hasn't received any work for several days. I've tried manual Updates and Reset Project from the BOINC Manager, but still get no new work.


All of my other cross projects are working just fine, epecially Poem... But i just cant get Rosetta to let me download work packages to my MBP - to saad...

No additional workpackage since the 15th, it is getting cold in here...!!!

My mac is running well. Are others having mac client issues?

I'm not having any mac specific issues; the only time I haven't gotten new work seems to coincide with the same problems that effected everyone else.

I do have concerns about a "acourbet.10.design_S" unit that is claiming large amounts of working memory (3.08GB right now, down from 3.2GB). It's been running about 4.5 hours, the last checkpoint was about 2.5 hours ago. It's an older machine with only 4GB of memory but as it's not doing anything else at the moment BOINC is allowed to use all of it. I'll keep an eye on it but thought a head's up might be in order.

edited to add: this is a resend after the previous cruncher's effort ended with an "out of memory error".

My system is up 24/7 allright but perhaps i have allocated to much discspace. On the other hand i was told i had to little space when allocating 1Gb and other project were concered out by... Rosetta!

So it seems no matter how i configure my systems Rosetta is in the front seat. I just deleted some of the waiting worktasks from Rosetta and narrowing the discspace to 2Gb and see what happends.

You state that Boinc learns but i doubt it, it worked smoother when i just installed it on my new computer about a month ago, then after a week it put Rosetta in the front seat

Any suggestions on how to configure my system to share the precessors capacity 50/50 between two projects in another way!.





Well, i´m just about to kick the Rosetta project out from my computer due to running in high priority mode. It effectivly blocks every other project since before christmas and it is new years evening today even thoug i have configured boic to shift betweeen projects everey hour.
Is this the only way to work around the problem??


No not really, the problem is your cache size is so large, or your pc doesn't run 24/7, that Boinc thinks that you can't possibly finish the work you currently have prior to the deadlines. It usually develops when you are running several projects, all competing for the same resources, and then one project takes longer to process a unit than Boinc thinks it will when it downloads the work. You can set a project or two to No New Tasks so it doesn't get any more work from anywhere else right now, but as long as Boinc thinks you are overloaded it will run in High Priority mode. As a lost resort you could abort some of the work units, but if you don't set Boinc to No New Tasks it could just download more. Boinc LEARNS from its mistakes but it takes time and is not a very fast learner!

This is also a Long Term Debt issue but the easiest solution is to have a smaller cache. LTD is built up when your pc works a long time for one project and then 'owes' crunching time to other projects because of your percentage settings. If you look in the Boinc Manager under Projects you will see all your projects listed, next to each is a percentage of crunching time that you would like Boinc to adhere to. This is a GUIDELINE not a rule, but over time, perhaps as long as a year in some extreme cases, those numbers WILL be honored. The numbers are adjustable at each projects website.

Thanks for all answers, i just increased the space available for Boinc to 15 Gb but it doesn´t use more than 905Mb of wich Rosetta uses some 890Mb and Poem nearly 750Kb with a buffer of 2 days of work on a consistent 100Mb internet assignment.

Keep on folding!

JonPer .. 1 GB is too small. I am running Rosetta and ClimatePrediction. BOINC appears to be using about 8 - 10 GB on my HDD.

I suggest that you bump your HDD limit up to something more practical ... 10 GB or so at a minimum.


Ok, thanks for your answer. Compared to other projects like Poem@home for instance only Wants 75 Mb. Bu ill try it and hope for the best.

The more space i make available on my HDD, the more rosetta "eats" wich makes it impossible for other projects accessing space. As of now i have dedicated 1Gb to Boinc and in a snap Rosetta grabs 850+ Mb kicking out every ohter projects. Can someone please help me or i will be forced to shut down Rosetta.
