WU # 419 Just errored MAX CPU time. This is # 5 with OVER 200+ CPU hours wasted. yet my account only show 4. I still have 1 running with over 257 CPU hours... I wonder how long before this DIES? the other 3 are under 60 hours.

10/6/2006 1:32:37 AM|SZTAKI Desktop Grid|Unrecoverable error for result 1a9d6387-6dd8-4e3d-a31c-ae75a2daaf6d_eb496c67-de9a-4480-9619-8b5ceb8a73d8_208_1 (Maximum CPU time exceeded)

Well, that\'s it for me. Another 200 hours down the drain, see here. I shan\'t be back. Mike

After this I\'ll erase all of the old WUs from the database and we can start clear with new short WUs.
Of course I also have to apologize for any inconvinience caused, but please try to understand the difficulties around the cancellation of WUs in BOINC.


Adam, welcome back and I hope you had a good holiday.

I look forward very much to a better set of WU\'s after the 11th. If these work well I will be pleased, as will others I\'m sure, to help advertise that the project is back in business.

If I might make a suggestion it would be to start (or continue) a dialogue with Akos who seems to have magic fingers in diagnosing and optimising code.

Posted 4129 days ago by Profile MRAO
just had one of these too, see here. 10000 lines, 1 week deadline, finished all 10000 lines in 13 seconds, it reckoned. Ended error -161. Why bother. Mike

and another one here. 687 seconds wasted this time. I\'m going to risk one nore WU then I\'m dropping this project for now. I feel I have persevered for long enough. Looks like many others feel the same too - I note from the Home Page that just 16 WUs have ben processed in the last 48 hours. Three of those were presumably the dud ones I\'ve returned today.

Has anyone at all had one of the promised new 20-line WUs yet?

Mike

PostScript - my final try failed too. Bye, see you all in a month or so if things improve.

Szia,
I\'ve seen in threads some people whose Wu\'s were invalid because of an -161 error_code. But didn\'t see any explanation.
I\'ve got one too.
Workunit 4230
and I\'m the only one in this group See result
It crunched until 100% and the errored.
What\'s up doc ?
Thanks.

5) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : Too Many Results (Message 3876)
Posted 4130 days ago by Profile MRAO
A new error for me. The results I have returned in the last week or so fail to validate with a too many results error. When I look at the WU this is true with a bunch of comp errors in ahead of me and my WU as the only complete one. Oh well!!!

Bob

Me to with this one. Mine is a good result, gets no credit as other units have been aborted or whatever. What a waste of time and energy. Mike

Yippee! Smaller WUs - see news

Thankyou Adam.

Now to try some ...

Mike

Hmmm. Not a promising start. Allowed New Work on two PCs again, immediately got two 1000 line WUs, estimating 360 hours (optimistic from the early percentages). Cancelled those. Got a 2000 line WU! Seems like they are getting longer rather than shorter. PCs back on No New Work again until we get some clarification here. What\'s happening please?

The Status page now shows about 102,000 wu\'s either ready to send or in progress. The front page shows an average of 19 wu\'s a day being completed. My trusty calculator makes that 5,368 days before the WU\'s run out and we get some smaller ones. I didn\'t bother to turn that into years this time.

Can we please be told when the smaller WU\'s will become available.

Thanks, Mike

According to the Stats page there are about 37,000 wu\'s either ready to send or in progress. According to the front page there were 64 wu\'s turned in over the last 48 hours, or 32 a day. My calculator tells me that the current set will run out on October 8th 2009. Should we come back then? ;-)

HELP please: i have two WU\'s atm both been running for a little over 24 hours and both have ZERO progress 0.000% ..both have a report deadline of 05/09/2006
1) should i leave them alone and let them run.
2) suspend them both and start another WU
3) please advise


bob

These may be the single calculation WU\'s mentioned previously. This type of WU will sit at 0% the whole way through their single calculation but eventually usually terminate ok. Sadly, it appears impossible to determine how long this will take. To tell if you have these, find the BOINC\\projects\\szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu_szdg directory, and with a text editor open the in.txt_xxxxxx file for each WU. If it contains a single line it is one of these. If there is more than one calculation there (1000 lines, or 500 lines, or some large number of lines) then something is probably fishy after 24 hours at 0%.

It is anybody\'s guess how long they will take, unless either one has already been completed by someone else who has already posted a compute time for guidance - you would have to look at the WU information on the server to see that.

Probably you can leave them to run through, but there is no guarantee they will finish in any particular timescale, depending too on the speed of your computer or computers and how much time a day they spend on Sztaki. Your computers are hidden so we can\'t look and tell you more. If they do take a long time and work you will get a lot of credits if you value those.

I\'ve cancelled all of the WUs, of which no result has been sent out so far. About 13000 WUs remained that I couldn\'t cancel, because they are already being crunched. After these run out, I can decrease the lines of the WUs to be crunched.

According to the Stats page there are about 37,000 wu\'s either ready to send or in progress. According to the front page there were 64 wu\'s turned in over the last 48 hours, or 32 a day. My calculator tells me that the current set will run out on October 8th 2009. Should we come back then? ;-)

I support the requests to have no more than 10-20 objects per WU please, for the sake of all who support multiple projects using something smaller than a Cray running 24 hours a day.

Thanks, Mike
