1) Message boards : Number crunching : Daily quota of three tasks? (Message 1795821)
Posted 12 Jun 2016 by Profile KWSN Ekky Ekky Ekky
I am always lost in (genuine) admiration for all you people who know how to do things. I am a mere mortal who wants to be able to use this darn machine!
Anyway, for now things appear to have returned to normal. Tasks are being run and completed and the Gods are allowing me as many tasks as I need.
Thanks once again for all the advice - some of which is completely beyond me but is still very much appreciated.

Many thanks for the advice. Hard disc thoroughly checked and nothing wrong whatsoever. Happily, I have now downloaded a pile of v8 tasks and they are so far checking out OK. When I have a chance I shall crack the machine open and give it a good blow and suck and see what it looks like then.
One though, however. I recently started using AVG Zen for all virus and disc functions. I am not sure if it really cares for Boinc. I suspect it tries to check every operation for safety and maybe that is causing occasional jerks in operation.
Anyway, keeping fingers crossed.

Very odd. Had to reboot and then found that no CPU tasks were running. There should be four plus my NVIDIA tasks. Only NVIDIA is running and I cannot download new CPU tasks and still none are running. I have changed no settings anywhere that I know of. According to my account data, computer Starbug currently has some 570 tasks, none of which I can see on my computer. BOINC knows there are 4 CPUs available. There appear to be piles of Version 8 files waiting. Why on earth does BOINC think I have a limit of three tasks? What have I done and what should I do?

One problem solved.
Easy, of course: repair BOINC. GPU units now running OK.
Firefox still not working, though!

I am using a GeForce GTX 660 and this has done excellent work on GPU units in the past. However, the driver has been updated today by NVIDIA and BOINC is telling me that the GPU is missing, so crunching of GPU units has ceased.

Another possible symptom is that Firefox will not now load: fine if I download it fresh each time but as soon as I close it, it will again not load.
I am utterly clueless as to how to proceed.

Any help in simple words that an idiot can understand would ne most gratefully received.

I lay on my chest and I thought it best
To pretend I was having a evening rest;
I lay on my tum and I tried to hum
But nothing particular seemed to come.
My face was flat on the floor, and that
Is all very well for an acrobat;

But it doesn't seem fair to a Friendly Bear
To stiffen him out with a basket-chair.
And sort of squoze which grows and grows
Is not too nice for his poor old nose,
And sort of squch is much to much
For his neck and his mouth and his ears and such.

Upload problems seem to be intermittent. As suggested, probably local.

Upload problems at present? Everything looks OK but may be a temporary problem?

The tasks you have will be validated or not (depending on your results) and you will be awarded credit (or not) sooner or later. But someone in the lab has to do it manually, and with a list of things longer than anyone's arm more critical that need attention, the problem of "stuck" tasks have ended up somewhere on the end of the list. They do get cleared up eventually, when is anyone's guess :)

Patience, of course, is a virtue.

Just curious really. This has been hanging around from my past like an unwanted guest:
Completed, waiting for validation since 4 May 2012
I presume I shall never get credit but why is it still there?

We're in for a huge spike in the stats graphs once this lot gets assimilated!

I don't suppose there is anything in this but from my observations of upload outages, they are happening almost exactly every two days. Coincidence? Genuine symptom?
