120 odd hours for nothing. Until astropulse is sorted it will be aborted on my comps. Dayoff

That looks like a validator problem. Your wingman found 30 pulses after dm_chunk_large 2944, and bailed out early: you went on the complete the full search.

That should result in status 'Checked, but no consensus yet', and both credit claims kept 'pending' until the third result (which has been correctly generated) is returned for comparison.

The developers will be interested in your report, and may be able to grant credit manually (there are precedents). If they do, I hope you'll reconsider your policy of aborting all AP tasks on sight: it's only through experiences, and reports, like yours that the final problems will be ironed out of the Astropulse application and back-end processes.

Hi, followed this thread and think, that this is probably also a way to 'see', how the AP units 'behave'and if there are errors, wich kind are they and differences in validating can also be ajusted, but 'they' need to have some valid results, with a credit claim[/] to get the [i]validators to work OK.
I do hope, that they get validated, I do have completed 7 off them, considering 24 hours to complete, means, on a QUAD, 2 day's and 7 x 720= 5040 credits, 2520 a day. That is quite common, compaired by SETI MB without OptiApp.

Looks like you got bitten by the same bug as me, I lost an AP unit as well when it was suspended.

Try turning on the "Leave Application in Memory" option.


My first Astropulse unit has just crashed too. Intel Mac. Task result

As with others below (or above, depending which way you like your threads), I had suspended it while running other things and it crashed immediately upon resumption.

When I have used 'Leave Application in Memory' in the past, I have had trouble with tasks not releasing the CPU and seeming to get stuck in a full power loop, busily calculating nothing. Task progress was not incrementing but Hardware Monitor showed the processor(s) still steaming away at 100%.

I think I'll wait until a real fix is forthcoming.


Well I am having fun watching my second Astropulse run.
#ap_06fe08ac_B0_P1_00324_20080813_29361.wu_0
Original CPU estimate was 142 hours.
Currently 61 hours complete, progress is 20.497% and CPU estimate to completion is now another 146 hours.
Interesting, so I will let it finish and have another completed AP unit for discussion purposes.
I run with "leave app in memory" and have my second CPU crunching at the moment.
When the second CPU finishes crunching its units, I will watch the time estimates to see if there is a significant change in the AP unit.

Okay... I don't see how the numbers are changing... it's going to take you ~300 CPU hours to complete. About 6 more days... post every day if you wish, but this is the fact and we have already been there... Astropulse underclaims credits and does not estimate the correct CPU time.

Halfway point?
112:43 hours running
41.730% progress complete

We don't need to be a math major to know 42% in not half.
I will presume that the early crunching is more processor intensive.
I have noticed that the completion time is finally starting to drop 1 second for every 1 CPU second. Early on, the completion time would not budge for 10 CPU seconds, and sometimes actually go backwards.

Heck of a club we joined eh.

BoincLogX can give you a more accurate estimate.

There has been much discussion of this issue on the "Message boards : AstroPulse" forum at SETI Beta

I've done a couple of AP now. running it along side other SETI and Einstein work units it took about 108 actual hours and a CPU time (sec) 236,455.40 throttled at 75% cpu time.

The other one I ran buy itself and took about 60 actual hours and had a CPU time (sec) 209,267.00 100% cpu time.

In both units the time was always running down, just slower at different times and they were both quoted in about the 37 hour range. I was told to expect double which I assumed meant the cpu time and not the actual time, so it ran about what was expected as far as I can see.

The requirements for Astropulse are supposed to be a 1.6ghz cpu minimum. One was sent to my old Compaq Pentium III 1ghz laptop and several were sent to a dual Pentium III 1.1ghz machine. The laptop crunched about 60 hours and was 4 percent complete when I cancelled it. I just downloaded the latest BOINC to see if I can deselect Astro.

Well the strangest thing just happened.

Leaving them in memory doesn't stop the errors on Mac's. I had seven tasks Ap tasks running. I have had to restart the machine. Now six stopped with compute errors, yet the seventh is still going strong as I type this.

Although dotsch has done a great job getting a Mac app that can work, I don't think those of us with macs should be running Ap until the project release an official app.

The option to deselect AP is on your Account page under Seti@Home preferences. There is no need to change/upgrade BOINC.

Looks like you got bitten by the same bug as me, I lost an AP unit as well when it was suspended.

Try turning on the "Leave Application in Memory" option.


My first Astropulse unit has just crashed too. Intel Mac. Task result

As with others below (or above, depending which way you like your threads), I had suspended it while running other things and it crashed immediately upon resumption.

When I have used 'Leave Application in Memory' in the past, I have had trouble with tasks not releasing the CPU and seeming to get stuck in a full power loop, busily calculating nothing. Task progress was not incrementing but Hardware Monitor showed the processor(s) still steaming away at 100%.

I think I'll wait until a real fix is forthcoming.

Completion time is definitely speeding up, and I am still crunching on my other CPU.
Interesting posts about the MACS. Sounds like I would wait it out too if I used one for crunching AP's. Then again, mine is not finished either.

I will presume that the early crunching is more processor intensive.
I have noticed that the completion time is finally starting to drop 1 second for every 1 CPU second. Early on, the completion time would not budge for 10 CPU seconds, and sometimes actually go backwards.

Heck of a club we joined eh.

Ok we are over halfway there!

Completion time is definitely speeding up, and I am still crunching on my other CPU.
Interesting posts about the MACS. Sounds like I would wait it out too if I used one for crunching AP's. Then again, mine is not finished either.

Not sure what happened guys, but I won't continue to use this PC for AP's at this rate.

I wondered, after the third ERROR MESSAGE FROM MICROSOFT, stating that the x86 APx86 xxxxx client, has to be shut down, why there' s a X64 version for LINUX, but NOT for Windows.
Since a run WIN XP64 on that host. Win XP64, has a 32BIT subsystem, wich works OK.
Maybe 1 x86 and 1 X64 app. is a bad combination for WIN XP64.
I NEVER saw these error's, before.
Since yesterday I lost a few AP WU's, after 1 till 28 hours, after erroring out, kind off a waist off time.

After a full CPU, FPU, CPU-Intercore, CPU-Cache, Memory test(SiSoftSandra), couldn't find a single error.
I DID lower the OC a bit, don't know what's causing the errors.
Have to open a WEB-Site, for showing some results off the test's.

Any ideas as to why this AP unit died? 311871013
When it died my computer said it was low on virtual memory.

Thanks

Another error on Mac Pro after processing a bunch of shorties and couple of restarts.
Is that coincidense that no official Mac version of Astropulse is available?

I wonder if we'll ever see an official release for the Mac.

ORPHANED AstroPulse Work Units

I was just reviewing my current TASKS in my account and spotted two AstroPulse WUs assigned to me:

Task ID WUnit ID Sent Deadline
944674187 311943043 6 Aug 2008 17:52:05 UTC 5 Sep 2008 17:52:05 UTC In progress --- New --- --- ---
940308992 309881827 3 Aug 2008 16:34:54 UTC 2 Sep 2008 16:34:54 UTC In progress --- New --- --- ---

HOWEVER:
(1) neither appears in BOINC Manager (v6.2.18) tasks;
(2) I didn't download AP client (4.35) nor modify my app_info.xml file until ~26Aug08;
(3) I didn't modify my S@H Computing Preferences prior to Ageless's AstroPulse FAQ posting http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=48489&nowrap=true#797712 on 14Aug. I did notice though at that time that both Seti MultiBeam and AstroPulse were enabled (by default, I guess) in my S@H Prefs;
(4) I did see, but don't remember if might have occurred on 3Aug and/or 6Aug or both, that BOINC Manager Message log recorded that Seti did ask to send me 1 or 2 (?) AP workunits, but didn't because BOINC sensed I had no comaptible application installed.

<b>Can I (or someone in Berkeley) "cancel" my assignment to those 2 AP units and instead send them to someone else now so as not to strand my wingmen??</b>

BTW: I installed AP client v4.35 & modded the app_info.xml file, set S@H Prefs to AP only, and got 2 AP WUs on 27Aug. One AP WU completed this morning (66,585 CPU secs, 454 credits claimed+granted), the 2nd AP WU is still crunching (currently at 67.8% after 20h:45m with estimated 08h:35m to reach completion).
