3 hours later, and not one task to my main cruncher. It asks, and asks, and asks, but the only reply repeatedly is:

Time to shut this down, this is ridicolous.


Limiting your job requests to only AP7 will result in no work being sent. The AP database is down, if you want work from S@H allow MB projects to be processed until such time as the AP comes back. Alternative: shut down until that time.

You're misinterpreting the scheduler reply, or rather the scheduler reply is incomplete. I have always had the box for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" ticked, which always have, and still should give me MB7 if there are no AP available. My preference is AP only, but by ticking the box for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?", I will get MB if no AP's are available.

I didn't start running SETI yesterday :-)

And finally I am starting to fill up my cache.

Ah well, I'm finally beginning to fill up my cache, very slowly still, and there's a risk I will run dry again, if it doesn't speed up the refilling. ยด

The last time I got more than one task, was 3 Mar 2015, 16:20:48 UTC. That's a long time, more than 48 hours.

Time to shut this down, this is ridicolous.

Quit BOINC for about 10 minutes, then launch it again. Wait about an hour and if you still don't have any tasks, try it again. It took forever for my Mac & Ubuntu machine to start getting work again. Seems once you run out of work the server just ignores you.

Bleh, it's as if someone in charge of sending out WU's is reading the board :-)
Minutes after I posted I got 4 WU's for my GPU, the first one since I happended to catch one yesterday at 20:30:14 UTC (my CPU is not used for crunching now, only for feeding the GPU).

After those four though, soon finished, I haven't been able to get any more.

Bleh, again :-)

Still nothing for my main cruncher, but 2 more for the Laptop that really doesn't need any more. It still have 10 days of cache :-)

I might as well shut down my main cruncher, when I get home from work in a couple of hours.

I'm still getting the huge amount of "NO TASKS AT ALL".

And with that, I bid you all goodnight.

2,315,978 Results ready to send. Not one of them getting to my main computer. The two tasks my Laptop got, must have been a freak incident.

Validation of completed tasks is so slow, that it will take a year to validate my completed tasks.

Icicles forming on my GPU now, not good at all....

Tuesday outages is turning into something more like Tuesday to Friday outage.

Thanks Matt for the update.

Oh, my crappy 300-400 RAC Celeron Laptop, just got 2 new tasks, not really needed though :-)

My main computer though, is still bone dry.

LOL

I'm sure it will all be fine, in time for the next outage :-)
No tasks left to do now though. Fans are going at very low speed.

Well, maybe there's some light at the end of the tunnel. Reporting is now working somewhat, not reliable, but it is at least doable.

Can't connect to server
Can't connect to server
HTTP service unavailable
Can't connect to server

ad nauseum

Finally put it on NNT and managed to report all the tasks it had. Now have 0 in progress.

But the other box that just crunches a little bit is connecting with no problem.

Yes, it's all a bit...shall we say irritating.
I'm sitting here wondering if I should just throw some kind of temper tantrum, but then I guess I'm way way too old for that :-), and the fact that I'm sure it would not help at all...

I guess I will just have to push a few more times on the button marked "PATIENCE"

Edit: Only 24 tasks left on my main computer, some 4 1/2 hours, and then it's over if the project won't deliver any new tasks.

Ah well, this was ugly....again....
50 tasks to report, and that's impossible.
Thanks Dog they didn't try to bring AP back again. That would really have crashed everything.

Oh, come to think of it, I haven't seen AP work for a month now.
I wonder what happened?

16) Message boards : Number crunching : Radeon R9 285 not detected as a GPU (Message 1648498)
Posted 3 days ago by Keep On Sleeping
Lately I upgraded my display card to Sapphire Radeon R9 285.
BOINC did NOT detect it as a GPU. I tried running Lunatics, no luck!
It seems that BOINC only cares about Nvidia CUDA....

Any other workarounds?

There's your problem.

From GPU_computing:
"Warning: On Windows do not install BOINC in Protected Access Execution (PAE) mode aka service mode (6.4.5 - 7.0.28) or Service Install mode (7.0.64 and above). If you do, BOINC will not be able to detect or use your GPU."

Please reinstall BOINC, and do NOT choose Service Install mode.

Posted 3 days ago by Keep On Sleeping
That one's more typical, 104 coordinate sets from one observation, a ten hour gap, and 6 coordinate sets from the beginning of a new observation.

I don't know how common they are either. Arecibo seems to schedule observation time of no less than 1 hour, but I have one saved from two years ago which ended up with true_angle_range 347.22480029913 because the ALFA receiver was brought up for very brief periods a couple of times during a longer gap.
Joe

Thanks again Joe, for the details about how those high AR's happens. Now that I know that it isn't anything wrong, I can put that in the back of my mind.

Reporting is up and running now to get them validated.

Get new work, as fast as possible. I do not think this run will last for long. There's something seriously wrong with some server(s), that makes the project go up and down, up and down...

Danger, danger, Cricket just did a jump to 89.57 Mbits/sec.
I fear the worst :-)

Edit: Yup, the worst just happened. I managed to report all my 85 tasks, and I even got 4 new ones.

Everything works perfectly here now...
Except from a few minor things, that went pear shaped more than 10 hours ago:

1. I can't report any tasks.
2. I can't get any new tasks.
3. I will run out of work in 4 hours.


Apart from those small (almost not worth mentioning) issues, everything is just dandy :-)
