    Hey everyone! It\'s New Page Time!
    We\'ve officially started the processing of the 12th dimension. As you all know at the begining of december we\'ve installed a new version of the application which actually boosted the processing...well a tiny little bit. Early january the procession has ended and even though we\'ve been working on the new version of the app that makes it possible to process dimensions higher than 11, the finishing of the 11th dimension came a bit unexpectedly. So we\'ve decided to rerun those intervals that turned out to be interesting and also to do a little testing whether we could somehow shorten the intervals by modifying the input files only.
    For now we\'ve managed to produce such input files that have their borders tightened enough to make their procession suitable for the grid (aprox. 1 hour). That is why we\'ve been waiting with the announcement.
    Hopefully, the new application will be ready in 1-2 weeks, which not only will be capable for the processing of higher dimensions, but also with the new app we\'ll finally brake the barriers of the binary number system and we\'ll be able to research at large in any number system.
    Till the new app gets ready we\'re processing the 12th dimension with the modified inputs mentioned above, the effect of which is that we won\'t be able to prove that we\'ve found all of the possible results. But that is only a temporary state, the new app will find all of the possible results in a provable way...

        Could you increase the deadline for those long running ones a little and fix the estimated time needed?

        If SZTAKI estimates 1.25 hours for a 9 hour WU, those hosts with bigger caches might have trouble to crunch their caches in the given time.

        As much as the estimated time was too high before, it is too low now - but imo. that\'s worse.

          Adam, I read here about the size of the wus :
          http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/forum_thread.php?id=42#1937

          So they seem to be pretty big in size (at least with search 1.01)
          Athlon 64-3200 :
          wu running -> completion : 6h34min
          Barton 2500+ :
          wu running -> completion : 5h00
          Barton 3200+ :
          wu running -> completion : 6h10

          I have 23 + 21 + 25 wus = 69 wus (;) (the server has been generous !) to do with a deadline 27 feb. (4 days)

          For now, i\'m running Sztaki as a priority and i keep a closed eye on the deadline.

          But did you think to increase the deadline during a short time, waiting the new application ?

            Adam,
            I have my computer to download one day\'s worth of SZTAKI. I then get 6 or 7 WU\'s.
            But these new WU\'s are very long - in my case 17 hours to process.
            Today is 02.23 and the deadline for the 7 WU\'s downloaded have a deadline of 02.27. Due to the fact that my computer is only on about 12 hours a day, there will be no way to get all of these done.

            So can you increase the deadline to about 14 days so we can get these completed.

            Thanks,
            Richard

              ...



              As long as the checkpoints are not working, you might not even get one WU validated, even if you can return them in time.

              SZTAKI get messed up, when you stop the client (and don\'t keep it in RAM) and try to continue them later.

                wu 254746

                0 seconds and 0 claimed credits but the PC worked nearly 9 hours (CPU time) for that - this checkpoint stuff really needs to be fixed :-(

                        Ok, ranting acknoledged! The first few WUs utilizing the 12th dim have been a bit too big and as I mentioned the old application can only do checkpoint at special parts of the processing, that\'s why you had trouble with them. The new application will absolutely be checkpoint-safe, and till it is ready the size of WUs has been reduced even more...

                            Adam, thanks for the help by shortening the WUs. Could you also lengthen the deadline some? Four days is quite short unless one is running Sztaki with a high percentage share compared to other BOINC projects running alongside on the same computer. A seven day deadline would be a great help. Keep up the great work, Adam!

                              I have no problem with a deadline of 4 days when the wus are \"normal\" but with these long wus i needed to put my machines in \"urgency\" mode (though i\'m using an old Boinc core) so i suspended all the others projects (!) because of the 27 feb. and i aborted many wus since i will not be able to get them completed before the deadline.

                                    Ehm, I have an idea ;)
                                    Next time, send me \"some new\" wus before putting them on the server (if possible).
                                    This way, nobody will be \"surprized\" except me (and others testers perhaps).

                                        Could you also lengthen the deadline some? Four days is quite short unless one is running Sztaki with a high percentage share compared to other BOINC projects running alongside on the same computer. A seven day deadline would be a great help.


                                        Well, Trulayne, that would mean that if I lengthen the deadline than you would be able to give less priority to our project, which is not my aim...so most probably not ;-)
                                        Ok, I was just kidding. Of course if the project keeps up the good job, than it\'s our interest too to satisfy our fellow users, so most probably I\'ll raise the deadline after I\'ve discussed it with the bosses...Thanks...

                                          Next time, send me \"some new\" wus before putting them on the server (if possible).


                                          Good idea, Nightbird, but the thing is that I\'ve installed a separate test server just to test whether the size of the WUs are ok. I\'ve attached a few computers and all of them finished with the WUs in 3 hours at most. Now, on SZDG most of the new WUs are 3 hours or so in length. But there are some joker intervals (rare, though) which the program finds to be more interesting and spends a little more time with. But still most of the WUs finish in a reasonable time. What I could suggest is that if a WU tends to be longer than 5 hours than cancel it...but be warned! If you do so, you\'ll most probably cancel your being listed on the list, whose computers have found some valuable thing...

                                            Increase the estimated time by 10, increase the deadline and those wouldn\'t be a problem at all. As long as it doesn\'t download ten 16 hours WUs in a row with such a short deadline, everything will be quite OK. We don\'t win a flower pot with a short deadline and aborted WUs.

                                            (The 0 credits claiming bug is still there though)

                                              My PC has been stuck crunching long Sztaki WUs for the past 3 days.
                                              I just suspended the project and did a reset.
                                              Flushed a dozen + WUs in the process, sorry, but there was no way I could finish any of them today.
                                              I hate flushing WUs.
                                              I will keep Sztaki suspended until:


                                              • it is confirmed that everything is back to normal
                                              • the 13 results I have pending get credited

                                                Adam,

                                                I would also like to request longer deadline.

                                                I have 5 laptops running BOINC with 2 projects(SZTAKI, SIMAP) both 100% resource share. All of a sudden, sztaki has overcommitted all my machines and is grabbing 100% of resources.

                                                SZTAKI was taking 4-8 hours depending on the processor, now I have several taking 20 hours (5 times as long).

                                                Please extend deadline so SZTAKI does not continue to block out the other project.

                                                Shane

                                                    I am glad to hear that workunits will be shortened and deadlines will be extended...

                                                    however, I am most concerned with the workunits I have finished and am awaiting credit... with all of the users aborting workunits, I\'m afraid I will not get credit because of lacking validation... I moved significant resources to this project on Friday pm, and still have not one credit as of Monday am...

                                                    I request that you decide a way to award credit for workunits submitted but expire due to lacking validation until this can be resolved...

                                                    I am testing for my team, and I\'m sorry that I can\'t recommend the project until these issues are resolved...

                                                    I hope you will find a way to do this (at least temporarily), until this is resolved...

                                                    thank you

                                                      All the WU problem posts has been received and acknoledged, but please understand that I can\'t horn in immediatley, because of the redundancy:
                                                      I can\'t delete a wrong WU if even one of it\'s results has already been downloaded. This triggers that I can\'t delete the remaining results either, cause than the one already downloaded won\'t get any credit. So the deadline is 4 days. You have to give me 4 days to be able to get rid of the wrong WUs.
                                                      By the way, this is one of the drawbacks of lengthening the deadlines: if something goes wrong, it\'s effect will fade away much later...

                                                      ...4 days and the bad WUs will gone, up till then please do try to understand...

                                                        I can only speak for myself here : this is one of the most important parts, knowing that there will be a change.


                                                        As of the longer deadline : Claimed credits are rarely really lost. If they are pending, the aren\'t lost as long as the WU is still active. Knowing that hours of PC time might not help the projects is worse. So for me any deadline would be OK that allows the WUs to turn into validated results.

                                                          What about this one :

                                                          UPDATE result
                                                          SET report_deadline = report_deadline + 1200000
                                                          WHERE server_state = 4
                                                          AND outcome = 0;

                                                          :-)

                                                            I am glad to hear that workunits will be shortened and deadlines will be extended...

                                                            however, I am most concerned with the workunits I have finished and am awaiting credit... with all of the users aborting workunits, I\'m afraid I will not get credit because of lacking validation... I moved significant resources to this project on Friday pm, and still have not one credit as of Monday am...

                                                            I request that you decide a way to award credit for workunits submitted but expire due to lacking validation until this can be resolved...

                                                            I am testing for my team, and I\'m sorry that I can\'t recommend the project until these issues are resolved...

                                                            I hope you will find a way to do this (at least temporarily), until this is resolved...

                                                            thank you

                                                            Well, a problem of validation is not impossible if the quorum of results is not established.
                                                            For now, you got no credit because wus are pending with a deadline 1 mar. or 2 mar. So soon we will know where is the \"problem\" : wus aborted or no reply.
                                                            But as said Adam, \"All the WU problem posts has been received and acknoledged\".

                                                              Next time, send me \"some new\" wus before putting them on the server (if possible).


                                                              Good idea, Nightbird, but the thing is that I\'ve installed a separate test server just to test whether the size of the WUs are ok. I\'ve attached a few computers and all of them finished with the WUs in 3 hours at most. Now, on SZDG most of the new WUs are 3 hours or so in length. But there are some joker intervals (rare, though) which the program finds to be more interesting and spends a little more time with. But still most of the WUs finish in a reasonable time. What I could suggest is that if a WU tends to be longer than 5 hours than cancel it...but be warned! If you do so, you\'ll most probably cancel your being listed on the list, whose computers have found some valuable thing...

                                                              Wus in 3 hours ? you\'re lucky, Adam ;). You\'re speaking about the last wus sent ?
                                                              The feb. 23th was the worst day (for me and probably others users) : i received in total 69 wus (cache 1.5 day) (i had to abort 45 wus :( despite i don\'t like aborting wus) and the lenght, something like 7 h -> + 18 hours. :P
                                                              The feb. 24th : no wus received (i was overcommitted \"grin\")
                                                              The feb. 25th : really better -> only some wus received (cache 1 day) and shorter (0 h30 -> + 4h 30)
                                                              Ehm, i\'m corrected : i have 2 wus (+ 5 h) ;) - No problem, i keep them !

                                                              ps : if you need a tester, no problemo.

                                                                I\'ve started to grant your credits, for which I have to run queries on the database. And so what happens? The database seems to be lazy this monday morning. I\'ve checked it and somehow the innodb file for the database has grown to 8 Gbs. Strange, cause the database is dumped every once and a while...
                                                                Anyways everyone should get his/her well deserved credits soon...

Last weekend the backup of the database become slow (like 30 min) and after that the queries seemed to be slowly executing too. So it turned out that the INNODB files of the database has grown to 8Gigs. Which they shouldn\'t, but they did. What\'s the solution for that? Google is your friend for that: dump the database, delete the database and than create the database and restore the data. Sounds easy...I\'m fighting with this \'seems to be easy job\' for an hour now and it\'s still not ready. So I hope I could gave you a little insight why are we progressing a bit slower than we should...because each and every day there is always a little nasty thing that happens to block your way and you can\'t move on until solving it...

These short steps are experimental, and hopefully now I\'ll be able to calculate the size for 1 hour or so long WUs.

                                                                                          but obviously jumping from 5 minutes to an hour will cause some trouble to begin with because the client will download too much work (although surely the scheduler knows that the new units are longer, and knows to send fewer units in that case??)

                                                                                                    A little gadget \"grin\" but i would say about it \"pretty practical\" ;)

                                                                                                    thanks, Adam :)

                                                                                                    A coupple of questions:

                                                                                                    1.st:
                                                                                                    Is the new application compatible with the results given by the previous one, in other words, keep on with vers.1.01(on win) and vers.1.02(on linux) or shall we all reset the project?

                                                                                                    2.nd:
                                                                                                    How about the result on the 11 dimention, You said something about give users who did find some interesting result will be published?
                                                                                                    Look forward to learn just a little bit more from the outcome!

                                                                                                    Ones more, Thank You again Adam for You patience and giving us good answers on different problems along the way!

                                                                                                            Maybe you could add the image dimensions to help the browser, like :

                                                                                                            <img src=\"img/szdg1_small.jpg\" width=197 height=90>

Also I\'ve installed the 1.8 version of the application for linux and windows. As far as the tests have shown, the problem of the invalid wus after a checkpoint could be traced back to the good old line end character difference between the several OSs. I hope it will be fine from now on (give me some feedback on this, thx). If so, than I\'ll soon release the mac and solaris varsions too.

                                                                                                                    By the way, you can reach the website of the Networkshop conference form the news section. My colleauge and me have presented SZTAKI Desktop Grid, you can watch the videos of the presentations (if I\'ll have some time during the summer, I\'ll subtitle them in English). A comment: this was my first real presentation in front of a bigger public (not just students), so I was a bit nervous, but it was fine...

                                                                                                                    That\'s all for now...have a nice weekend...
