11) Message boards : Number crunching : Long-running WU (Message 553)
Posted 1721 days ago by ChertseyAl
Not seen one of these before:

http://www.primaboinca.com/workunit.php?wuid=4157373
http://www.primaboinca.com/result.php?resultid=5844774

Can't see anything different with it, but it ran 3 times longer than usual on that host.

Cheers,

Al.

It's been nearly a year since we heard that:

"targets reached: no counterexample for n < 10^11; next target: 10^11 < n < 10^12; current workunit: numbers around 3,3 + 10^11"

Would be nice to know how we are doing :)

13) Message boards : Number crunching : Always sending 50 WUs regardless of requested amount (Message 551)
Posted 1724 days ago by ChertseyAl
This seems to have settled down now on my hosts, getting a sensible number of tasks again :) Only had to abort about 10 in total, so not too bad.


I spoke too soon ;)

For some reason, on all but one host, I always get 10 WUs per core, regardless of the amount of work requested. I can easily crunch them in time, but it means my caches are filled for way over my normal cache time and it stops work fetch on other projects.

Maybe I just need to leave them to settle down again, but I don't know what changed to cause this to happen :(

Cheers,

Al.

15) Message boards : Number crunching : Tasks flagged as 'Timed out - no response' but had been returned (Message 545)
Posted 1868 days ago by ChertseyAl
Just noticed I've got a couple of tasks that were definitely returned to the project within the deadline, but are apparently 'Timed out - no response'.

An example one:

Not a big deal, but a bit puzzling. I'll keep an eye on future WUs ...

Cheers,

Presumably connected with the "primaboinca is offline due some database problems. we are working on the solution. sorry for the inconvenience" message on the front page, and the 'very slow' thread.

However, seems to be OK now. Just wondering if I'll risk putting a machine back on ...

Cheers,

Access to my account, or for that matter any part of the site is agonisingly slow. Also I have a WU stuck waiting for validation which is very unusual.

Something wrong?

Chertseyal follow this link: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=7595 . I was getting w/u's but they erred out after a few seconds. May be some help for you


Hehe. This is a very old thread Francis - Been working fine for *ages* now, it was just a shortage of work rather than anything complicated :)

Cheers,

Al.
