1) Message boards : Number crunching : Server out of space (Message 8551)
Posted 19 days ago by Profile Pooh Bear 27
I suspect with the fix that happened a few days ago made the temporary files expand exponentially. Since they delete on a schedule, they didn't get deleted in time for the file space to overfill. Now we are not having website updated because the disc is full.
Time for the admins to go through and manually clean up, or expand disc space.

Same pending unit I have since 3-Nov. It is nice the glitch yesterday cleared, but there seems to be a miss when they did whatever fix they did and this task being stuck. Server page shows none waiting. Yet http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/workunit.php?wuid=100722243 sits in pending status.

Single task still pending over 24 hours, now.

Why would there be pending tasks? This is causing hours to be not added. All tasks before and after the pending are completed successfully.

It affects all projects. The official fix is at BOINC's website

So, I started doing double of the units on the GPU, which now run not quite twice as long, use the same CPU time, and the temperature of the card is still very low. It also is recording better because WUProp sampling time seems to be just over 2 minutes, as the current units are taking just about 2.5 minutes and the old tasks were taking about 1.5 minutes.

So what you are telling me is WUProp is sampling every so often, and because the tasks are so small there is a lot of information lost.

WU Prop seems to have issues counting GPU hours when you multi task. I am doing 4 units simultaneously on my RTX 3090. 4x24 should equate to ~96 hours a day, yet I am getting just over 25 hours. The jobs just take ~1 minute each to finish, but since I have several downloaded and they swap out immediately, there should not be much loss of time.

PrimeGrid has announce their new LLR 3.8.20 that is now live and supports multi-threading. This is LLR tasks only, Sieve and GFN are still single core.

You need to either use an app_config (preferred) or app_info to enable the multi-threading. I suspect this will cut your hours down if running one multi-thread over single cores, but it is now a choice you can use.

PrimeGrid also does not distinguish between CPU/GPU. All the GFN, AP and PPS Sieve run on both. Only one app shows here.

Posted 9 Feb 2017 by Profile Pooh Bear 27
The last Windows update put out a bad driver. You need to get the official one from NVidia if that is what happened. Happened to me on all my machines.

Curious as to what that Private GfN server is... 46000 in progress... Thanks for the links.

GFN is part of PrimeGrid. It's a project that you have to privately sign up for, and they only take users who have some history. It is checking very small GFNs (under 15 which is PrimeGrid's smallest GFN factor).

Sometimes projects sit idle on a computer being shut down because of many reasons (heat of summer, fault hardware, etc), then a project is crunched when it comes back up and time is counted. You cannot fault the administrator of this site for something like this happening.

Third star turned gold. Being a person who doesn't bounce projects much anymore, I work on more or less a single project, since they added a bunch of new apps, I had been able to build to a 3rd star and currently have it at gold. It will eventually make Ruby, but probably not go much further than that in any short future.

Primegrid added more by reusing the colors, but changing the badge. First badge is just square, next set is a flag.

That could easily be done here, start over on the colors but make the stars a different shape, maybe circle or triangle or ??
16) Message boards : Number crunching : WU aborted by server (finish file present too long) - why? (Message 4250)
Posted 21 Sep 2016 by Profile Pooh Bear 27
Did your Windows 10 update? I hear there are some problems with the last update. I am seeing this on other forums. It's mostly machines with NVidia cards and you may need to reinstall or update you NVidia driver to fix.

First start turned green. I am not much of a bouncer, but I should get a 3rd star sometime in the future for the additional subprojects on the one project I have yet to start.
18) Message boards : Number crunching : validate errors ? (Message 4087)
Posted 27 Jul 2016 by Profile Pooh Bear 27
It looks like there are still validate errors, but they are fixing them every so often.

It is the physical WU internal name that is being used. For example, Primegrid uses the same application for many of their projects, but the WUs are each different. What is being counted is the type of WU, not the physical application.

Primegrid uses multiple applications also, like Genfer has CPU, OLC2, OLC3, OLC4, OLC5, CUDA, and maybe others. This are not counted separately. Now most of those have been combined into a single application, but previously they were separate.

As stated before there are some projects that test before going live. The project was stressed on the hardware it was on and needed upgrading. The admins took it down with kind of a promise that it would return soon. Well then it went MIA. Even the URL went away.

I suspect they finally got some hardware and are background testing the programs on newer BOINC version before it is release back out in the wild. At least that can be a hope.
