Yesterday I was wondering if all of the the files / loaded tapes were going to get split before we were going to run out of tasks to crunch, but this morning it looks like the servers took a different route and stopped splitting and creating tasks with loaded tapes / files still in the queue.

This file has been on the server status page for months if I'm not mistaken, so I was kinda hoping it would have been split

Hopefully computer stats & tasks look better tomorrow after the dbase servers are a little more sync'd. My machines are not showing any tasks in progress.

. . WTF? One of my rigs just tried to report work and got "down for maintence". Already? But the forums are still up so NOT an actual maintenance outage.



I just noticed the same thing, and communication deferred for 53 minutes

My 3B+ had 2 tasks go into error status since Sunday. I have removed all OC changes I made before and am back to 1.4 GHz. When I made that change, and rebooted the Pi, and I looked at BOINC to make sure tasks etc. were running - and the the remaining (estimated) time for the 4 active tasks were going down between 3 - 6 seconds every second. Kinda strange I thought - but perhaps the Pi runs better at the factory 1.4 GHz setting.

I don't recall if I installed the base desktop Raspbian, or desktop with recommended software / full version.

This doesn't say much if it was the regular desktop or full desktop:

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION_ID="9"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"
ID=raspbian
ID_LIKE=debian

Kernel is 4.14.79

The changes I made on Sunday:
arm_freq=1500
gpu_freq=500
over_voltage=6

The temps are usually around 48 degrees and still running 4 tasks. The USB fan to the side of it is still at the medium setting which is what it was set at before overclocking the pi.

I've been at 1.45 GHz on my 3B+ for the last 36 hours. No issues with that so just pushed it up to 1.5 just over an hour ago. Still running 4 tasks.

Those are great times for all four cores in use. Good and acceptable temps too. Maybe my concern of overloading the cpu is not valid. Your compute times running 4X are better than mine running 2X.

Can I assume you are running stock clocks at 1.4Ghz? That is what mine run at and I get an error message that my cpu is not overclockable when I choose the overclock selection in raspi-config.


Yes, running my 3B+ at stock clocks. But after watching the below video where it shows how to modify config.txt, I may kick it up to 1.5 Ghz this weekend.

My RPi 3B+ is running 4 tasks and is usually at 45 degrees.

I have a USB fan on the side of it, and it has this heat sink:

My older models run hotter with just 2 tasks running, with a smaller heat sink and other combinations of cases (case with a fan in it, a flirc case case 2 of them).

I was able to download a bunch of tasks on 5 - 6 of my machines. One chunk of downloads was 132 in 1 request, and they all downloaded without a hitch.
12) Message boards : Number crunching : BOINC Client is disconnected (Message 1983222)

Post:
I'm having an issue with one of my Linux Mint machines, where the client is disconnected when I open BOINC Manager.

I ran these 2 commands and rebooted, as for some it was a permissions issue:
sudo chmod -R g+rwx /etc/boinc-client
sudo chmod -R g+rwx /var/lib/boinc-client

I have checked TOP in a terminal window, and can see 1 Setiathome task running using about 17% CPU, which could be normal at the moment, since it may have not reached out to get new tasks since the servers came back online, or has stuck download tasks.

Any other ideas?

I was able to download tasks one at a time on 2 Linux machines, 2 other machines still have stuck downloads even after trying to retry downloading 1 at a time.

2 of my computers got some tasks, but the rest of my computers are still saying project has no tasks available.

RTS is at 1,418,050 tasks, so it came down a little bit.

Seti is coming alive again. One of my machines was able to get 113 tasks. Another machine wasn't able to get any. Hopefully the defrag of the dbase will help in the days to come.

it seems that the "no task available " horror show is back ...

forum is a little bit laggy too ;)


I'm at work so I can't check my system logs, but I noticed an hour or so ago, the statuses for multiple services on the server status page were an hour old. Right now, we have over 700k tasks ready to send, and all splitters are offline. I would suspect with the splitters offline, the backend system will catch up a bit. At least until the pendulum starts to swing the other way again.
