Message 2648 - Posted 12 May 2006 20:23:07 UTC

    I just noticed a large number of bogus entries in my computer list, likely from back when we had the bad venue/no WU issues.

    Anyway, I tried to merge them to clean them up, and got an error message:

    [SZTAKI Logo here] Unable to handle request

    missing or bad parameter: id_1

    Is something so broken in the hosts db that merge is now broken? Any chance that this can be fixed so I can cleanup my records?

      Everytime you contact the server, you create a new host ?

        I don\'t think it\'s every time. But there is a long list of them, many with 0 credit and 1 result on them.

          OK, I figured out the cause. The new BOINCstats Account Manager (BAM) was trying to attach to Sztaki, but I was already attached with some slightly different URL. Therefore BAM\'s attach attempt fails, and it detaches the duplicate project from the hosts. I think that\'s what\'s making all the duplicate hosts on my account.

          I stopped BAM from making any more attempts to attach it until I can deplete and detach the old (incorrect?) URL. In the mean time, how do I clean up all these bogus host entries from Sztaki\'s DB? Merging them still gives the same error message.

            There are 8 projects that need to upgrade there servers to stop this happening.

            this project been one of them, its nothing to do with BAM, just a server side error

              You may have to wait until any results they were assigned have been deleted from the database. If even \'empty\' ones won\'t merge, sorry, I have no idea.

                Still unable to merge these, and now I\'m noticing hosts being created on each connect, which had not been happening when I first posted about this problem. I\'ve heard on other forums that this is a server-side bug. Any chance you guys can upgrade to the latest BOINC server code and fix this? I really don\'t have 127 hosts and climbing.

                  Doesn\'t need any latest BOINC server code here, there is a small patch they need to apply to stop this error

                  Edit: Most projects have applied this patch still the few odd ones out there that have not yet

                    Got a pointer to the patch, to help Adam out?

                      Yup just dug out the post its from D.Anderson

                      There have been a number of bug fixes in the scheduler (CGI program)
                      recently; for example, a change on 9 Mar 2006 fixes a bug where
                      a new host record gets created on every scheduler RPC in some cases.
                      I recommend that all projects upgrade to the current code
                      (in the CVS trunk, not stable tag).
                      The scheduler is the main thing; I recommend upgrading all
                      back-end programs (feeder etc.) also.

                      -- David


                      Don\'t be scared by the mention of the not stable tag most projects are using it with no errors

                        Sure! I\'m also planning to make a big cleanup in the host table...when? I\'ll try to make it happen soon...

                          sounds like you\'re (going to be) a busy guy, what with other people pestering you about website issues as well ;)

                            Any news on this, Adam? The creation of new hosts on each connect seems to have stopped, but I still have hundreds of hosts to cleanup. Merge is NOT working most of the time, giving me the error mentioned earlier (missing or bad parameter: id_1)

                            Any chance of either cleaning up the hosts table on your side, or fixing the merge bug so we can clean up our own messes?

                                I\'m having this same problem. Every connect,a new host.

                                Also, maybe it\'s related, I have 2 older PCs running Linux. Different names, and processors. But, when I try to merge them, it also thinks the other host is part of the one I\'m trying to merge. So, to example: PC1 and PC2. I try to merge the entries for PC1, and PC2 also shows in the merge list. Same for PC2, PC1 is in the list.
