Message 1224032 - Posted: 27 Apr 2012, 18:46:56 UTC

I am receiving the above message, but I have 9GB reserved for BOINC. It reads 9GB at both the S@H and E@H websites as well as in the local prefs. I'm not sure where to begin to fix this. I was crunching along just fine, but now, neither project has any work units left and I'm idle. I'm running Opensuse 12.1 with the standard packages for BOINC.

Use either the web-preferences, or the local preferences. Then you know which ones to update. The local preferences override the web-preferences.

The disk and memory usage preferences aren't just about the amount of disk space you've got free, they're all of these:
Disk: use at most 15 GB
Disk: leave free at least 0.10 GB
Disk: use at most 100% of total
(values are mine).

You say you have 9GB reserved for BOINC, but you don't say how big the drive is, how much on it is free and whether there's even enough space to have that 9GB reserved. You don't need 9GB either, not for Seti, Einstein and Cosmology, as these three projects together won't use 9GB, not even when you set 10+10 days.

Aha, your post at Einstein shows the problem:

No disk space available: disk_max_used_gb 0.00GB disk_max_used_pct 75.00 disk_min_free_gb 0.00GB
No disk space available: host.d_total 78.74GB host.d_free 69.86GB host.d_boinc_used_total 29.90GB
No disk space available: x1 -20.90GB x2 29.16GB x3 69.76GB x -20.90GB

and

Gamma-ray pulsar search #1 needs 19.07MB more disk space. You currently have 0.00 MB available and it needs 19.07 MB.
Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) needs 152.59MB more disk space. You currently have 0.00 MB available and it needs 152.59 MB.

So someplace you've set "Disk: use at most 0 GB". Most probably in the local preferences. Clear them or when you don't use the GUI, exit BOINC, delete global_prefs_override.xml and restart BOINC.

Message 1224121 - Posted: 27 Apr 2012, 23:14:48 UTC - in response to Message 1224053.

Used by BOINC 762.49MB
Free available to BOINC 8.26GB
Free not available to BOINC 61.58GB
Used by other programs 8.16GB

I set it to 9GB to make sure that space wasn't an issue. I don't remember exactly, but I think it was set to 2GB before this issue arose.

All prefs, web and local, are set to 9GB...

They are set the same everywhere that I can think of. I deleted the file and I still get the same error. :(

What are your values for
Disk: use at most __ GB
Disk: leave free at least __ GB
Disk: use at most __% of total
?

Message 1224391 - Posted: 28 Apr 2012, 14:31:49 UTC - in response to Message 1224366.

I just read Ageless's second post again, and there the server says:

host.d_boinc_used_total 29.90GB

With your setting of max 9 GB used that gives the mentioned -20.90 GB:
No disk space available: x1 -20.90GB x2 29.16GB x3 69.76GB x -20.90GB

So, try a value of, say, 31 GB to receive tasks again.

@John. Can you please post the contents of the global_prefs.xml file and if it exists, the contents of global_prefs.override.xml ? (Although I told you to remove this latter and you said you did so...)

Yes, but he set "Leave at Least" to 0.01, because it "won't accept 0.001" ;-)

What is the size of your BOINC Data directory?
Check for big junk files in it.

I made an experiment, I put 1.35 GB movie file in:
...\BOINC\projects\orbit.psi.edu_oah\

The results:

BOINC Manager - Disk Usage - 1 - Normal.png




BOINC Manager - Disk Usage - 2 - Fake.png




(The "junk" file have to be in the directory of some of the projects,
if put in BOINC program or directly in BOINC Data directory it have no effect)
