Message 1375957 - Posted: 3 Jun 2013, 15:56:21 UTC - in response to Message 1375897.  

It's morning again and I guess I'll squeeze in one last post on this "fetch work / not requesting tasks" issue and then it looks like I should make way for installer-related posts.

One is not processing GPU tasks and is on BOINC v7.0.64. The other is processing nVidia GPU tasks and is on BOINC v7.0.28. Both machines are running Windows 7 x64. This seems to support the idea that this bug is unique to v7.0.64.

Sounds reasonable.

So different (nVidia?) GPUs, different OSes, but all using the same BOINC version?

Yes, a GTX 550 ti, a GT 640, an 8600 GT, and an old GeForce 405; basically whatever the MB and power supply in each box would support. All are on BOINC v7.0.64 and all with the latest NVIDIA driver (314.22).

At over 500,000 computers, I don't know if I'd want to keep all of that logged on my servers if it were me. That should be logged on the client if anything, but I admit that I don't know the extent of the logging on the SETI@home servers.

Actually, regardless of the number of connected computers, I'd think it would be irresponsible to not have at least some level of logging in place. In any event, I see from a later post that there might be something available for the Admins to look at, if they choose to.

And from my own final post last night:
I think this machine will complete a v6 AP GPU task overnight, so it will be interesting to see if the loop returns tomorrow.

Yes, the v6 AP task completed and NO, the loop did not start back up. So, my next observable milestone will probably be tonight when the machine which did resume looping runs another AP GPU task.

As far as opening a thread in another forum goes, I'll leave that to anyone who's still actively experiencing the problem. I just started posting here in an attempt to be helpful to a couple of users who had seemed to experience the problem after I had seemingly found a way to get past it.

Agreed that it would be irresponsible to not have at least some level of logging in place. I don't know that I would log all work requests though as I would think most of that information to be largely irrelevant to the science, and would consume too much storage space for what little insight it would provide. For reference, my company has 6,000+ computers and the server logs consume well over a Gigabyte per day.

After I enabled V7 I could not even navigate any of my 3 browsers to Berkely university websites... much less the SETI@home. I had to format my drive and re-install windows because I even have a hunch about users in here now and their custom worms

Terrible, aint it. My AVG said there is some woodworm infection in the basement, so I'm even having to buy a new house.

Its 4 pages long.

The number of posts per page is user-configurable. On my current settings, it's 10 pages (or was, before this post).


Good call. Forgot about that. Sorry GS :)


Already forgotten, also the part of whining and the rest of what you wrote...

Message 1376186 - Posted: 3 Jun 2013, 21:40:54 UTC - in response to Message 1375895.  

Much ado about nothing. I am running SETI@home v7 on a Linux box, Astropulse V6 by Lunatics on another Linux box and SETI@home V6.03 by Dotsch on a Solaris Virtual Machine on the second Linux box, which houses also a BOINC_VM Virtual Machine. The two don't interfere except at start time, when I have to suspend Solaris to let BOINC_VM start, for unknown reasons.
Tullio

I've PM'd Dotsch to let him know SETI@home v7 has gone live here, and that his v5/v6 apps will be obsolete soon, he's going to start on the v7 apps within days. (as of the 31 May)

Then update your app_info.xml with one that does, with the Latest Lunatics Installer.

I have the same problem.

I installed the latest SETI version 7.0.65. Since "setiathome_v7" is what is in the app_info.xml file what is the correct string for version 7 (as I have not been able to find the correct string)?

Tomorrow I'll post explaining why we wanted version 7 and what's different about the analysis it does.


Where is this post? Thanks :)

Jarrett, if this message of information about V7 was not posted yet, it's certainly that Eric Korpela has not still had time to do it.
I'm persuaded that he didn't forget it but all the staff of the project SETI@home must be enormously busy at the moment with all these update.
A little of patience, that will come ! :)

From jason_gee

My recommendation (Subject to change after I try it) would be:
- Set No New tasks
- Wait until tasks all complete, upload & report
- delete app_info.xml from the project directory
- reset the project
- Allow New tasks

Extra notes: Probably need to check web options too in there somewhere [OK :)]. I'd try let the server decide amongst the compatible versions over some time with one instance per GPU (underutilised due to memory intensive Autocorrelations) then worry about multi instances after things settle in. You'd likely want either newer Recommended Boinc for that, or wait for installer for older Boinc clients to run with app_info (anonymous platform)

You'll need to ensure the web preference for V7 is ticked as well, which I gather it probably is.

Yes.
SETI@home Enhanced: yes
Astropulse v505: no
SETI@home v7: yes
AstroPulse v6: no


I get the following message every time SETI starts.

State file error: bad application name setiathome_v7


I get the following on most requests for work.

[SETI@home] Requesting new tasks for CPU
[SETI@home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
[SETI@home] No tasks sent
[SETI@home] No tasks are available for SETI@home Enhanced
[SETI@home] No tasks are available for SETI@home v7
[SETI@home] Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home v7.
[SETI@home] Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v6.

So what is the correct app_name for SETI v7.0.65?

There is no such thing as seti v7.0.65. That is a BOINC version number.

Since you're using app_info (anon platform), you need to run the Lunatics installer, v0.41. You'll find the link to it in the NC forum.

Have you uninstalled LUNATICS (v0.40) ?
Uninstalling this old version of LUNATICS is mandatory before any other operation.
