    Unaccountably, I have started getting errors on one of my 9 boinc systems as shown here AFAICT, from looking at the event viewer, this system seems to be working OK and other boinc tasks seem to have no problems. This is an AMD system, 64 bit opteron running Vista64. I have 4 linux (AMD), and 3 Win7 (AMD & Intel) and all run 64 bit OS and seem to be ok.

    Looking at the task it details, primaboinca terminates because it has exceeded its time allocation and states "memory leak".


      Maximum elapsed time exceeded

      Hello, stderr!!!!
      APP:start:
    • *********
    • *********
      Memory Leaks Detected!!!




    <EDIT>

    THIS IS THE NO CHECKPOINT PROBLEM!!!

    BOINC switches tasks after an hour and on this system, it seems to take over an hour for primaboinca to complete a task. SInce the programs restarts over, it never finished any tasks. Appearantly the more recent work units are taking over an hour and this system got caught while my other 7 didnt, as least yet.

    I came to this conclusion after looking at the no-checkpoint thread. I then rebooted my vista box and notice that primaboinca started over from 0 percent. It used to be at 88 percent and was lacking about 15 minutes.

    I am leaving this project and will check back occassionally to see if the checkpoint problem is fixed.

    ps - The only "memory leak" is forgetting to add checkpointing to the project apps.
