My #1 star has turned lime in color. Slowly but surely my WU_prop hours grow.


WOO HOO!!!

Their preference section is hateful.

A special thanks today to Coleslaw for getting me interested in WuProp and all the new little projects that could use a starting boost.

Back in September of 2016 twenty App's seemed like a lot of App's but after awhile I got my first little bronze star. And last night, a little less than 5 years after joining WuProp I clicked over star number 7.

Congrats to all!

Just changed the colour of my 4th star to emerald. Working on the 9th to turn golden. Afterwards there won't be any change in color for a while...


WOO HOO!!!

14th star with the latest SiDock checkpointing app. On the way to #282 with HadSM4 at N144 tasks that work and Rosetta python tasks. Those are hefty.


WOO HOO!!!
6) Message boards : Number crunching : WUProps WU will not complete (Message 8178)
Posted 19 days ago by mikey
My 1090t, that's been responsible for many hours and hosts my best GPU's, hasn't completed a WUProp WU since May 13 (weather is much hotter and it was off for 10+ days).

Reset the project several times, pulled and reinstalled after making sure the slots and data folder were empty of WUProps remains.

The WU from today is now going on 36,000 seconds and shouldn't go past 23,000.

Process Hacker shows the WU is using 0.06% CPU every approx 30 seconds and saves about 24k bytes to the drive about as often. Not seeing any network activity.

This machine is Windows X 2017 ed. The only things that have changed since early May are reinstalled the NVidia and AMD GPU drivers, turned off a few services but turned them back on and still having the issue. (This should not be relevant).

The only thing that I was doing about May 13th differently was manually setting all 8 minecraft@home WU's affinity to core 5 to see if nVidia OpenCL locking of cores could be alleviated (it helped greatly; but I need an affinity shift automation script/app).

Can playing with affinities earn a WUProps ban?

Is just changing the BOINC host CPID enough to fix this?
I haven't done that in while... just changing the computer name (equiv to domain name) in Windows is enough to force a new host CPID but then prolly have to go and merge the machine with it's old stats on every project it's attached to... which is distressingly very many.
Maybe detaching WUProps first then changing the domain name then reattaching will just force WUProps to generate a new host CPID and the other projects will not generate new or even if they do keep the stats properly merged with the old ID?

Will a new WUProps CrossID even fix my issue?

Is there another fix?
Like figuring out why this is happening to my machine?


Mine are running for 6 hours, 36k seconds, of clock time but only 21k of cpu time when I get credit for them. I would let it run for a few days and see what happens.

And setting cpu affinity didn't have any effect of wuprop when I did it awhile back.

I have no idea about new host cpid's and wuprop but do know they can take a few days to migrate across the stats sites.

DARN I will NEVER catch you. LOL
Yes I've the the app before just not this plan class before.


If it is any consolation, I've 19 Einstein apps in my WuProp list...


I have 10 and half of those are red colored

I just today got a brand new type of task from Einstein because I have the "run test applications" checked:

Application
Gamma-ray pulsar binary search #1 on GPUs 1.24 (FGRPopenclTV-nvidia)


If by "brand new type of task" you mean "another WUProp app", unfortunately that isn't true.

The application is "Gamma-ray pulsar binary search #1 on GPUs", which is not new. It's obviously been around for at least 5 years, if not more. "(FGRPopenclTV-nvidia)" is the plan class. This won't count as a new WUProp app unless, of course, you've never run any of the "Gamma-ray pulsar binary search #1 on GPUs" tasks before.

Looks like all Tasks end in Validate Error ...


Yeah but my hours are going up!!

I think they must have some kind of problems because alot of my wingmen have different gpu's than I do yet have very similar runtimes and the task is still invalid.

I hope they fix both the validation and the runtime as well, mine do NOT take 6 days to run, more like like couple minutes.

who has the server URL?

any signup PW needed?

Thank you very much, I tried using my regular Minecraft login and it didn't work so I had to create a new account for this site.


There are ALOT of invalid tasks at this site, I don't know if it's the tasks themselves or the process 99% of mine and mmonnin's tasks are invalid and that's just the 2 people I checked.

I see from looking at your apps list, WUprops is not going to count the beta version as a separate app, so we're just getting a head start on the WU's.


That’s correct. Turning the beta flag on or off doesn’t make it a different app. However, the word “engineering” probably does. These tasks are not real data from the third observation series. When we start processing real data, the app name will probably change, and I suspect that might count as a separate app.


Yup, E@H has done that in the past.

Einstein@Home Gravitational Wave All-sky search on LIGO O1 Open Data
Einstein@Home Gravitational Wave Engineering run on LIGO O1 Open Data


So we better start banging them out if we want our 100 hours

new apps


Einstein@Home
Gravitational Wave search O3AS Engineering


Finding it hard to catch one of these.
The preferences are tricky.

Set to receive beta tasks, chose 'Gamma-ray pulsar search #5' for CPU only, chose to use GPU's but not to use the CPU and hoping the server sends O3AS to the GPU's.
If I choose the 'Gravitational Wave search O2 Multi-Directional GPU' then the GPU's get those WU's and not the beta (maybe the beta would slip in a few times over the day?).


I read on Einstein that YES if you choose the 02 gpu tasks you will get the new 03 gpu tasks instead but they are still called the 02 gpu tasks. I have no clue how those hours will be sorted out for our stats here.


That didn't work for me. What DID work was:

1) Select one of the CPU-ONLY apps. Note that is CPU and not GPU. (I chose the first option, "Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo)".)
2) Select YES for the "Use Nvidia/AMD GPU" type and NO for "Use CPU". The combination of #1 and #2 effectively means you have nothing selected.
3) Select YES for "Allow non-preferred apps". This allows you to grab the 03ASE tasks which don't seem to yet have a selection box on the preferences screen.

Doing this, I got over 200 oif the O3ASE GPU tasks and none of the other tasks.


Thank you very much, that did work for me too!!

beef@Home got a new URL:
https://www.nodium.net/beefathome

Since this will probably lead to a new entry a merging will become necessary...


My tasks went from a few seconds in the beginning which seemed to cause Server problems to a bit over 4 hours each, on an older laptop, today which hopefully will calm things down a bit for them

The URL is definitely https://boinc.nanohub.org/nanoHUB_at_home/ and I'm running units to get my 100k credit now.


100k hours???


What did you just say about learning to read? Your own words. The hours are easily visible to anyone and its not a new project. Also mentioned "running to get" aka not there yet.


And for nanohub@home it too may seem new as it has only this week started putting out tasks for the second time in 11 months. Small credits and frequent errors.

Bill F


Yup same as before. Run for 2.5 hr and abort or complete in a few minutes.

34 people have 100k(+) credit at NanoHUB including myself. Most came quite some time ago.


I am far from that at only @30k and my valid tasks are struggling to stay ahead of the invalid and error tasks: Valid (11419) · Invalid (3660) · Error (7296)

Now THAT would take an awful long time or a HUGE amount of processors as fast as they are!!!

My 14th star has turned to GOLD.

>>>>

Taken a year to move up one more colour, hope the next one is a bit quicker.

Not sure what my next goal is at the moment but I will figure one out.
