1) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : funky error (Message 5779)
Posted 3944 days ago by Ron Peterson

The \'output is empty\' msg is generally a defence mechanism against empty outputs, which BOINC refuses to upload. Generally, the program code should never hit this line, but it does eventually...in some weird cases. We are working on a better code, which hopefully will always generate an output, no matter what happens...

Thanks for the reply. I look forward to updates.

I\'ve been downloading a lot of the 1a9d series of WU lately and aborting them because of exceeds max CPU time error - what ever thaty is. Has the series been fix not to error out?

Brief update on long times. I have 3 WUs in the 21b342bd group. On my slower work computer, one finished at 40 hours, the other at 50 hours. On my slightly faster home computer, it\'s still at 50% after 153 hours. I\'m startimg to wonder. It had better not exceed the max CPU time limit before finishing.

At 204 hours with 50% done, it excede it\'s max CPU time. I\'m stopping SZTAKI on my home computer, too many errors on long running WI, but will leave it running on my
work computer which doesn\'t through errors.

The other user (running an A64 3200+) has aborted the wu after a cpu time = 45h so patience (fingers crossed).

Oh, I plan on letting run. *sigh* Plus my work computer just picked up two of the same kind of WUs. *groan*

I have an odd situation. With WU name: 21b342bd-9be3-49d2-8c12-48e176df7b34_efec975d-432f-44ab-828c-d29bfeb4ac07_393, it went to 50% at 2 hours. Now, it\'s still running at 21 hours. Normal? Should I abort???


Some WUs can take over 100 hours, others reach the max cpu time at 200+ hours, yet others finish in 15 minutes. Some finish, some don\'t, it\'s your gamble. The % complete just means the first line was done after 2 hrs, and the second line is taking much more than that, no suprise.


Now 80 hours, still at 50%. I\'ve stopped other projects. If I get another max CPU time error, I\'ll be irked.

Hey Ron...just a note to say that I have yet to see anyone finish a WU that begins with 1a9d...

Here is my results page. You will notice that any project beginning with a \"0\" or a \"2\" seems to finish...it is my belief that these 1a....WU\'s are just burning up CPU time...Stan

Maybe someone has finished one of these 1a...WU\'s and could share that news with us....


Aieeee, you were right. After 225 hours, it gave up, Maximum CPU time exceeded.

1,274.59 credits lost. *sigh*

I\'m kind of worried about my new WU. At 48 hours, it\'s at ... wait for it ... 0% still. I hope it is a 2 line run. At least I have a few days to complete it.


At 51 hours, it jumped to 10% done....


Of course, I had to shut boinc down to do it and bring it back up. 20% at about 57 hours - restarting boinc...

Now, up to ~110 hours and still stuck at 20%. Should I abort???
