1) Message boards : Number crunching : Panic Mode On (101) Server Problems? (Message 1758130)
Posted 22 Jan 2016 by Profile Tim
It was a driver thing.

I reinstall an older driver and all is ok.

Thanks for the links William.

The latest nvidia driver has issues as I read.

I don’t know if others have the same problem.

With v8, wu’s never end, and error out. Gpu usage is 0, with 2 tasks at the same time.

If I restart Boinc the wu’s start over and do the same thing. I use app_config.xml

I will keep an eye on him. Even with lost tasks he must lost and found his files 8 times.

And the tasks are still growing.

I was fooling around my tasks and I saw a user with 1400+ tasks in progress.
Did he found a way to bypass the limits, or it is something else? I already PM him a week ago, but he didn’t reply.

The user is Mr. John Chrzastek and his computer id is 7033569

I think all the wu’s starting with 19ap11ad. end with invalid state.

Check my invalids and you will see just that.

Set the Boinc Manager to NNT and report manually.

It worked for me 10 minutes ago.

Your CPU is tooooo slow. Even for non vlar tasks.
Also does not support Hyper-Threading.

Don’t forget that windows and other programs need your Cpu power.

At my dual Xeon pc I use the 900D.I use to have the Haf X.The 900D is bigger, and it is cooler.

Plus with the 900D you can make better cable management, and add more than one PSU.

I just install a dual xeon machine (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz).
The Cpu has 6 cores ( 12 Threads ).

The problem is that BOINC Manager find one CPU with 24 Threads, instead of two CPU’s with 12 Threads.

Is this normal?

I didn't mean to pressure, just curious. I don't want to create pressure and make problems.


Don’t worry my friend.

I just found the opportunity to express my feeling.

Maybe next week after weekly server maintenance or one week later ... - JMHO.


And then we will see if Mr Anonymous at 3rd place can take 2K AP tasks.

Posted 16 May 2014 by Profile Tim
Now I'm a bit down.

Once upon a time there was a Setiland. All people ware treated equally and there was a feeling of harmony around.

One day TheLimit was raised!

Most people noticed but nothing... But the evil was lurking around. An AP hoarder amidst us Seitzens. The universe kept on expanding as time passed by.

But one day - The AP stopped to appear. That was not evident immediately. Everyones cache was filled with a mixture of MB and AP - so nobody realised that until it was too late. No one got no AP anymore. Their caches were run out of AP.

Except for one - there was this evil hoarder. He had set a spell to the magic internet page and made sure that hed'd get no MB. This way he got all the AP in the wolrd!

Oh the groaning and moaning every morning, throughout the day and every evening. No greater evil could have hit us - people said!

Some went to the extent that they switched to another project - some waited their mouths shut.

Time passed by...

And there was this one morning when all remaining GPU coolers whirred so beautifully and all the worlds results loked a bit more shiny. Something must have happened said everyone - no one knew what.

But the a knight in an Arctic Silver IV shining body came and told every person still in the project that the CPU cooler of the hoarder had caught a fire and caused a meltdown of those horrible AP hoarding GPU cores and that the King of the Setiland had issued a permanent order: NO ONE (Tim) WITH A SETTING THAT SAYS AP ONLY AND NOT ALLOW ANY OTHER TYPE OF WORK SHALL HAVE A LIMIT OF 1 TASK A DAY INSTEAD OF 100 PER GPU AND CPU.

The people hoorrared for a total of three days and .....

--

Well - the children are now asleep. Mee too in a an hour or so.

I just looked at at the tasks of another top 10 cruncher and was kind of disappointed. When running AP only I could get 240 000 a day - but I do not want to. I have AP as a preference, but atleast I have this "send work from other projects when available" on.

How would you explain if You had N hunderd AP only? (N is a big number)


Am I cheating somehow?

I don’t think so.

Is there somewhere written that I will take MB wu’s or AP wu’s?

I don’t think so.

I can do whatever I want to my preferences, asking no one what to do because ARE MINE.
No one will tell me if I will download 800 AP’s or 800 MB WU’s
Yes I can take 800 Ap tasks and I will do it again because the server allow, and it is legal.
We all wanted 100 wu’s per Gpu as I remember, and now we are complaining?

By the way…
This machine is going to retire at about one month or two.
We have here at the office a new build with dual xeon, and 8 Gpus.I will install seti and run 1000 AP tasks.

And a question to petri33…
If you were at 2nd position, and I was at 3rd, will you have those questions?

Another lot that also annoy me are those that as soon as AP's are being split abort their MultiBeam work just so they can fill up on AP's.

Cheers.


Sorry guys this was a test we make to see the up’s and down’s of the RAC.

No MultiBeam work was abandoned.

This will not happen again.

This is a promise.
