1) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : About AkosF. optimised applications.. (Message 7856)
Posted 3148 days ago by Profile kevint
1.x applications are incompatible with the new WUs, so don\'t use them, cause they\'ll fail computing new WUs.

We\'re in touch with Akos Fekete and we\'ll release optimized applications officially.




Bumping thread.

What happened to the \"we\'ll release optimized applications\" ???

This project is being managed as well as I remember it.

That would be NADDA.

It is suppose to be set and forget for our side, not the developers or project managers.

Whats the deal ?

Is anyone alive?

Copy of news:
Apr 02, 2009.
The 32-bit versions of the Windows applications have been registered as 64-bit versions as well, until the native 64-bit compilations get ready.

Messages form my WinXP_64 host:

Where can i find the problem?



I have attached a couple Win-64 to this project and am getting the same problem.

I thought this had been corrected ?

Update Please?

Hi,

sorry for the late reply, but it took me some time to investigate the situation. The thing is that it\'s rather hard to determine the optimal WU size, since this new dimension seems to fluctuate on a wider scale than previous dimensions used to be. Working on the solution...

Adam,

I know that with aborted WU (exceeded time) there is not credit - but many participants have asked if this can be corrected.
Can you run a script to grant credit for those WU\'s

If you need some help with the application, I know of several people that have been doing optimizations and code enhancements for several projects and I am sure they would not oppose to helping out here.

Just send me a PM and I can see if I can get them in touch with you.

In the mean time- is there a way to increase the estimated time to finish to something like 300 hours?? Some projects have done this in the past and it has worked out quite well.

Thanks for your reply!

Hi Everyone,

due to the characteristics of the application it is hard to predict the running times of the workunits. Some will finish quick, some will take some time. However, the workunits - no matter how long they take to finish - are useful for the project and they are not defective. Please let your computer finish as much as it can, before the deadlines. Those which remain unprocessed after the reach of the deadline will be taken care by the server and will be sent out once more with a new deadline.

However, it is a problem that too many workunits gets sent out. I\'m working on a solution for this.


Not even sure why I posted, since ADAM the LAZY admin has not made a post on his projects message boards for over 30 days.. WHAT GIVES!!!

Come on Adam, respond- your project is starting to get some bad press in the BOINC world.

==Adam




What do you intend to do with all the WU\'s that abort on exceeded time estimate.
I have had several abort during the past couple of days - all of these have run for over 70-100 hours. So far, this is a terrific use of my computers time!!!!

Yes yes yes....

I think there is an easier fix for this.. Projects like RCN and many others send 32 bit apps to 64 bit hosts with no problem.

Hmmm,

Having not crunched this project for many moons, I just attached a machine this morning.

After reading through a few of these messages.. it is making me think twice about coming back right now.

Also checking the top computers for credit per hour... seems that even if your host can return the WU in time.. that the credit is horribly low for having to crunch through a 320,000 second WU..

Guess I may just have to wait to see what happens before attaching anymore boxes to this project.

I do think we need some answers here - I have several/lots of WU\'s in que and being crunched.
Time to complete keeps increasing, some are at 70 or 80 hours of processing time.

Am I wasting my time here - do I need to abort these WU\'s and move on to something else before wasting any more time on them.


Suspending project for now - maybe they will complete in time maybe not -

I await some answers from Adam

lots of wus means a load of work, hope you have some years spare.
i am at 40% with 65 hours crunched.




Agreed, looks like the estimated completion time during download was under estimated by about 100% :) when WU\'s downloaded it estimated completion time was 22 min. after 40 hours of crunching I now have 22 min. and sitting at about 50% - if these numbers are correct, I should have about 22 min left in about a week from now.

Fun and games with the grid.

I spent nearly 190 hours on 1 wu, which should have gave me 1100 credit. I noticed the others who downloaded the same wu aborted, so it couln\'t be confirmed. Just checked & that wu has been deleted & I have not had any credit. You would think that the amount of time I stuck with this wu, I should have got something.

Is this going to be the norm & should I not bother with SZTAKI if you cannot guarantee that the work you do you do not always get credit

I hope this has been corrected - as I have downloaded lots of WU\'s recently and have just started crunching them.
